Want to learn more about Brake Pads replacements in Liverpool?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What are brake pads?

Brake pads are quite simply the friction material that is pressed against the brake disc in order to slow the rotational speed and therefore the wheels, in order to reduce the vehicle’s speed.

What does a brake pad replacement involve?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system.
  • Mechanic will establish whether the front, rear or both sets of brake pads require replacement.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake pads.
  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system and, if deemed safe, will test drive the car.

Can you replace brake pads by yourself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a brake pads replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of worn brake pads?

  • Brake system warning lights appear on the dashboard.
  • Noises under braking.
  • Inadequate braking .
  • Pulling to one side under braking.
  • Vibration under braking.
  • You have an MOT advisory warning on brake pad wear.
  • Worn brake pads have been picked up on during a service.

How long does a brake pads replacement take?

A brake pads replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace the brake pads?

A brake pads replacement is probably the second most common requirement after servicing. The pads will wear depending on your driving style and the environment where you drive (in the city or in the countryside for example). When you consider that your brake pads are a couple of small pieces of relatively soft material, it’s inevitable that, in time, they will wear away. Just like your tyres, the harder you drive and the more you use your brakes, the more often you will need to have the brake pads changed.

How can I extend the lifetime of my brake pads?

The way you drive can have a significant effect on how long you can drive between two brake pad replacements. Using common sense, driving carefully, and anticipating the hazards on the road ahead are the best ways of doing this.

The earlier you can brake when you need to slow down or stop, the less pressure you will need to apply on your foot brake, and so the less pressure you put on your brake pads, and the more slowly they will wear.

Frequent, hard or emergency braking will always take a greater toll on the compound of your brake pads and lead to the risk that you will need to replace the brake pads more often.

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.

Can you drive with worn brake pads?

If the brake pads have worn beyond the legal limit or the manufacturer recommended limit or have otherwise worn and been compromised and no longer are able to guarantee optimal brake performance and safety then book a mechanic to check and replace the brake pads where necessary. If you experience any untoward characteristics in your braking, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle. Driving with bad brake pads can impair brake performance and safety, and can be lethal.

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.

Can you replace just the front brake pads?

Yes, you can just replace the front brake pads if it is just the front pads that have worn, this has been professionally diagnosed and is safe to do so. A professional mechanic can advise on which brake pads need replacing, they can check the brakes and advise on the next steps for your brake repair.

How much does it cost to fix brakes that are grinding?

If the brakes are grinding, or develop noises under braking, it could be that the brake discs are worn or damaged. Cost for a front brake discs and pads replacement is on average £185, with pricing ranging from around £130 to £375. 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.

Do I need to replace the brake discs every time I replace brake pads?

No, if it is has been professionally diagnosed that just the brake pads are worn and have caused no damage to the discs then it is not always needed to replace the discs at the same time. At ClickMechanic we offer brake discs and pads replacements as well as brake pads replacements. If you are unsure which brake parts need replacing then book with a professional mechanic who can check the brakes and advise on next steps. If you experience any untoward characteristics in your braking, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle.

How do I know which brakes need to be replaced?

If you suspect there is any issue with your brakes or are concerns about the age or condition of its components, book an inspection with a professional mechanic immediate effect. Driving with bad brakes can impair brake performance and safety, and can be a major safety hazard.

How many miles do car brakes usually last?

Different components of the brake system will need replacing at different intervals. For example, the brake pads can last between 25,000 to over 50,000 miles. How long the brake pads can last does depend on a number of factors, like the vehicle make and model, quality of the brake pads and how you use the car and how you brake.

Are worn brake pads an MOT failure?
