Honda Brake Pads and Rotors in Whittier

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors

If you’ve ever tried driving with worn Honda brake pads and rotors in Whittier, you’ll already know just how dangerous it can be. Beyond the lack of proper braking power that comes with driving on worn braking system parts, you also risk more serious damage to your vehicle.

With that in mind, the service team here at Ocean Honda of Whittier has put together a quick and easy guide covering the following questions:

  • How Can You Tell When Your Brake Pads Are Worn?
  • How Can You Tell When Your Brake Rotors Are Worn?

How Can You Tell When Your Brake Pads Are Worn?

You’ll generally have your brake pads changed every 5,000 miles as part of your manufacturer recommended service routine, but they may sometimes wear out sooner than expected. You can actually perform a quick visual inspection yourself should you think any brake pad might need to be replaced – if any of them appear less than a quarter inch thick, it’s time to schedule servicing.

Further signs your brake pads need to be replaced include:

  • Squealing or Squeaking Sound While Braking
  • Vibrating Brake Pedal While Braking
  • Harsh Metal-on-Metal Sound While Braking
  • Longer Stopping Distances
  • Active Brake Lights While Not Braking

How Can You Tell When Your Brake Rotors Are Worn?

Honda brake rotors should also be taken care of during routine maintenance – as a general rule of thumb, they’ll last anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles. You can find them connected to the wheel hub just behind the hubcap, and you should arrange servicing if you ever notice any surface cracks across them.

Further warning signs your brake rotors need to be replaced include:

  • Vibrating Steering Wheel While Braking
  • Harsh Metal-on-Metal Sound While Braking
  • Longer Stopping Distances
