Symptoms of malfunctioning brakes pads

A loud screeching or grinding noise when you apply the brakes or feeling your car vibrating under braking is a clear indicator that new pads are required.

How do rear brake pads work?

To slow your car down or bring it to a stop, your brake pads are used to clamp down on either side of the brake discs attached to your rear wheels, to create friction and reduce speed.

How often should rear brake pads need replacing?

Symptoms of malfunctioning brakes

Your car doesn’t slow down or stop as well as usual

If you feel that your brakes don’t work as well as normal or they don’t seem to provide the normal level of performance, then your brake pads could be damaged or worn out.

You can hear a squeaking or grinding noise when you brake

Any unusual sounds coming from your brakes during their operation could be a sign that the brake pads are damaged or worn down to the base plate metal.

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.

The brake pedal is in a lower position than usual

Any change of position in your brake pedal could be because of a problem with the brake pads, discs or brake fluid.

The car vibrates under braking

Excessive movement or vibration when braking could be due to problems with brake pad or disc positioning, or state of repair.

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.

What happens when we replace your brake pads?

  • Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will inspect the brake system for signs of wear, damage and breakage.
  • They will establish which brake pads need to be replaced and fit new ones as necessary.
  • You will also be advised of any other parts that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle.
  • Once the brake pads have been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure the correct operation of the new parts and make any adjustments required for premium performance.

What causes your brake pads to stop working correctly?

The main reason your brake pads will stop functioning correctly is usually down to general wear. Over time and constant use, the friction material on the surface of the brake pad will wear out.

It’s also possible that foreign objects thrown up from the road can become trapped in the braking system can cause damage to the brake pads. The failure of other brake system components could lead to the incorrect operation, jamming or failure of your brake callipers, causing excessive wear or damage to your brake pads.

Renault

Groupe Renault is a French multinational automobile manufacturer, established over 120 years ago in 1899.

How popular is Renault in the United Kingdom?

This French marque has around 1.4million vehicles on the road in the UK today. Their numbers peaked between 2007 and 2008 at over 2million vehicles, yet have been on a slow decline ever since.

Sensibly priced options for middle of the road vehicles

Renault makes a wide-ranging selection of respectable vehicles.

As you’ll find with most manufacturers in today’s market, the cream of their crop lies with their SUV models. Other stand-outs are the RS models built for a much more fun driving experience and the electric models that are also sitting impressively in a steadily growing market.

Renault: a constant contender in all manner of motorsports

In the 1970s, Renault set up a dedicated motorsport division that went on to take the winners title in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1978, with the Renault Alpine A442. They have been competing and achieving successes in both rallying and Formula One ever since.

Renault Formula One

Renault debuted their first formula one car (and team) at Silverstone in 1977; it was the first of its kind to include a turbo engine. The team continued until 1986 and shortly after, in 1989, they began to supply engines to the successful Williams-Renault car.

The Benetton team was renamed Renault F1 in 2002, and the team went on to win the constructors championship in both 2005 and 2006 with Spaniard Fernando Alonso at the wheel.

More recently, Renault powered the winning Red Bull Racing team in 2010 and returned to racing as a team in their own right, from the 2016 season onwards.

Renault’s reliability and reputation

Renault ranked 19th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. The highest to lowest scores ranged from 97.7% (Suzuki) to 76.5% (Land Rover), suggesting Renault’s 91.7% rating is probably a little better than the ranking position suggests.
