Front brake pad replacement

How do front brake pads work?

Brake pads are a key component of any vehicle’s braking system. They’re flat parts made of semi-metallic, organic or ceramic materials, with a metal backing. When you use your brakes, the pads hydraulically squeeze the brake discs, slowing your car down through friction and pressure. The pads absorb some of the biggest forces involved in daily driving.

Most cars have two pads per brake disc, although some high-performance models can have more.

What happens when we replace your brake pads?

How often should rear brake pads need replacing?

As a rough guide, your brake pads should last for 50,000 miles, but there are a number of variables, including driver behaviour, the weight you carry, speed and the type of pads used. Not to mention that nearly 20% of MOT failures are caused by faulty brakes.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

Incorrect brake operation, damaged or excessively worn discs or pads are considered unsafe for your vehicle performance and will cause your car to fail an MOT.

The cost of replacing front brake pads

The typical cost of replacing front brake pads is around £100.

For example, a BMW 116d M Sport would have a dealer price of £133.13, yet Fixter will carry out the same work for only £107.10—a 20% saving!

Changing the rear brake pads on a Fiat 500 C Lounge will cost you £120.59 with your dealer, but only £99.17 with Fixter—a superb saving of 18%!

When you choose Fixter to find you a great deal and a premium mechanic to carry out your rear brake pad replacement, you can expect to save around £20–£25 from an average dealer price. That’s a typical saving in the region of 15–20%.

What causes your brake pads to stop working correctly?

While your brake pads will keep you safe over thousands of miles, they won’t last forever. Eventually, the abrasive surface on them wears down, and they will need to be replaced, ideally while you still have around 25% capacity of the pads left.

Given that they take most of the load, front brake pads will probably need replacing first. They also have a bigger surface area to increase friction.

To make your brake pads last longer:

Symptoms of malfunctioning brakes

Your brake callipers make unusual noises

A loud screeching or grinding noise when you apply the brakes is a clear indicator that new pads are required.

When your car pulls to one side under braking

If only one brake is working correctly, it can cause your car to pull in the direction of the functioning brake.

The car vibrates under braking

Your brake pads could be warped if the pedal vibrates when you press down on it.

The brake pad is worn down

Look through the wheel’s spokes for a visual check—the outside pad is pressed against a metal rotor, and you should be able to see at least 3mm of the pad.

Your brake warning light on the dashboard is illuminated

If any of your dashboard warning lights are illuminated, the sensor that detects problems or worn out parts and components has detected an issue and activated the system.

Land Rover

Land Rover is a luxury car brand that specialises in 4-wheel-drive vehicles.

Regarded as a British icon, the company came into effect in 1978, but previous versions were built as part of the Rover Company, dating back as early as 1947.

It is currently part of Jaguar Land Rover; owned by India’s Tata Motors since its acquisition in 2008.

How popular is Land Rover in the United Kingdom?

The number of Land Rovers on the roads continues to grow. This could be due to a rise in popularity or their indestructible nature and go anywhere, handle anything design and build.

There are around 940k on the UK roads today—and not just on the roads—they’re authentic working vehicles chosen by the majority as their commercial off-roader of choice.

Luxury executive vehicles built for getting dirty

The once army-style paint schemes and boxy vehicles of yesteryear have long-since been replaced by the modern Land Rover. These cars offer genuine luxury interiors, advanced media and drive control technology, and look every inch the part working on a farm, climbing through forestry or attending a charity event at Sandringham or Kensington.

Range Rover: the opulent end of the Land Rover range

The ultimate Range Rover starts with a price tag of £83k, and for that you’ll get a car with class-leading features, excellent components and incredible off-road performance. It’s a first-class travel experience with tomorrow’s technology built in. Every element has been scrupulously designed—and it shows.

Land Rover’s reliability and reputation

Land Rover shamefully ranked 30th out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. For an off-roader designed to go anywhere, you’d expect it to be indestructible, but it scored only 76.5% reliability from its drivers taking part in the survey.
