When To Change Brake Pads
In the more modern automobiles, there is likely is a light that will come on and let you know when it is time to have your breaks replaced or service. You might also watch the mileage compared to the estimated life of your break pads. And when you hear a squeak or a grind when you hit the breaks it is time to get your breaks serviced and checked immediately.
If you replace your brakes before the grinding starts, in most cases, your professional brakes professional can replace your brake pads while preserving your rotors. They may do this by "machining" your rotors. But if your brake pads are completely worn, and you are hearing grinding, there is a good possibility that your auto mechanic will recommend changing out your rotors alongside with your brakes. You should follow the recommendations of your automotive care provider or local mechanic.
