How can you tell if your brake pads need replacing?
If the brake pads have worn out prematurely or if you are experiencing trouble under braking, it is advisable to seek the help of an expert to investigate the problem and, if necessary, replace the pads as soon as possible.
Driving with brakes that do not function properly can, of course, lead to dangerous situations on the road. You should always replace either both the front pads, both the rear pads or all the pads together to ensure balanced brakes.
At what percent should brakes be replaced?
Usually when brakes need attention you wouldn't replace 'brakes' but rather parts of the brakes (brake system), that have wear. For brake pads a technician may say that the brake pads need replacing when you still have 50% of the pads left. When they need replacing ultimately will depend on a number of factors including suggested service intervals for brake pads as stipulated by the vehicle manufacturer and legislation. If you have any concern about the condition of the brakes then book an inspection with a mechanic immediately to get the issue checked.

A rear brake discs pads replacement cost varies from £125 to £350, with an average of £175. Ultimately, cost depends on your location, car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.
