Brake Wear


What is brake wear?

Abnormal brake wear is when the brake pad or lining wear at an abnormal and accelerated pace. Brake pads and linings will wear at a normal predictable rate if fitted properly but under certain conditions this wear can be extreme.

How does brake wear happen?

Abnormal brake wear occurs when the wrong type of pad or lining is fitted or the rotor surface is rough, it may also occur when the caliper pistons or pins seize up.

Is there any way of preventing this from occurring?

Choice of pads and linings is crucial to the stopping performance of a vehicle, choosing the right pad is as important for its durability as it is to safety. Regular maintenance of your vehicles braking system is essential for its integrity and longevity.

Probable Cause & Corrective Action

  • Wrong type of pad or lining material for operating conditions. Replace with correct pad or lining material
  • Caliper pistons and/or pins seized. Fit pins and seal kits.
  • Extremely rough rotor surface. Regrind rotors.
