How long does a brake pads replacement take on my Mini?

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 on my Mini?

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 Mini 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 Mini brake pads on your 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 Mini 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.

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

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 on my Mini?

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 on my Mini need to be replaced?
