Is it better to change the brake pads and brake discs at the same time?
The brake discs need not be changed if the car is new.
Also, if there are still a lot of discs, life left.
They absolutely need to be changed if the discs are worn or scored.
Look at the braking surface of the discs.
There are ridges on the edges of the braking surfaces.
The braking power is reduced, and it can even cause brake noise.
If one of the two are not in optimal condition, they cannot achieve the actual braking potential.
Surface Cracks – Brake disc.
Decreased Brake performance is the cause of Bad Brake discs.
But also cause brake noise.
SAC Auto Service Centre recommends changing your discs and pads at the same time.
It is dangerous to drive with over-wore brake discs!
Either disc surface appearance become LP record disc, or crack started
Why brake discs need replacement?
The main reasons are ‘friction heat’, and ‘heat capacity’.
Heat damages are
The following examples are typical heat damages:
Decrease in brake calliper rigidity
Early worn disc/pad
Distorted, crack, step worn on disc
Brake fluid vapour lock, fluid leakage from screw
Friction material separation by bending of brake pad back plate (backing plate)
To keep heat damage to a minimum level, constant confirmation of disc/pad wear status is most important.
