Honda Brake Pads and Rotors in Morgan Hill

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors

Driving with worn Honda brake pads and rotors in Morgan Hill can mean risking anything from an unpleasant ride to a serious collision, and yet many drivers still can’t recognize the signs that something is wrong with either part. With that in mind, we put together a quick and easy guide to bring you up to speed. Simply read on to discover:

  • Signs Your Honda Brake Pads Need to Be Replaced
  • Signs Your Honda Brake Rotors Need to Be Replaced

Signs Your Honda Brake Pads Need to Be Replaced

When you press down on your brake pedal, the brake calipers force the brake pads against the brake rotors. The pads have a friction surface on the side that’s pressed against the rotors, and it is the friction this creates that slows your vehicle. Of course, that means your brake pads take plenty of strain during every journey around San Jose and beyond, so they usually need changing every 5,000 miles.

Signs your Honda brake pads may need to be replaced sooner than expected include:

  • Squealing or Screeching Sound When Brakes Are Applied
  • Braking Pedal Vibration When Brakes Are Applied
  • Increasingly Long Stopping Distances
  • Active Brake Light While Not Braking
  • Metal-on-Metal Sound When Brakes Are Applied

You can also take a look at each brake pad to perform a quick visual inspection. If one is less than a quarter inch thick, you should schedule servicing to have it replaced.

Signs Your Honda Brake Rotors Need to Be Replaced

Brake rotors can also be visually inspected. You’ll find them mounted to the wheel hub just behind the hubcap, and any surface cracks should be a cause for concern. Further warning signs your Honda brake rotors may need to be replaced sooner than expected include:

  • Steering Wheel Vibration When Brakes Are Applied
  • Increasingly Long Stopping Distances
  • Metal-on-Metal Sound When Brakes Are Applied

Brake rotors generally become worn and need to be replaced every 30,000 to 70,000 miles, so they’re far less likely than your brake pads to need regular attention.
