Brake pads how to conservation, which mainly has the following six points:
First, the normal driving conditions for each travel 5000 km on the brake shoe check once, not only to check the remaining thickness, but also check the wiper wear state, both sides of the degree of wear is the same, the return is free, etc., found not The normal situation must be dealt with immediately.
Second, the brake shoe is generally made of iron liner and friction material composed of two parts, must not wait for friction material part of the grinding did not change the shoe. For example, Jetta's front brake shoe, the new film thickness of 14 mm, and the replacement of the ultimate thickness of 7 mm, which includes 3 mm more iron liner thickness and nearly 4 mm of friction material thickness. Some vehicles with brake shoes alarm function, once reached the wear limit, the instrument will alert the replacement of the shoe. To achieve the use of the limit of the shoe must be replaced, even if still able to use for some time, will reduce the effect of braking, driving safety.
Third, the replacement of the original spare parts to provide the brake pads, the only way to make the brakes and brakes between the best braking effect, wear the smallest.
Fourth, the replacement of the shoe must use a special tool to brake the top of the cylinder. Can not use other crowbar hard pressure back, so easy to lead to brake caliper guide screw bending, so that brake pads stuck.
Fifth, after the replacement, we must step on a few feet brakes to eliminate the gap between the shoe and brake disc, resulting in the first foot did not brake, prone to accidents.
Sixth, the brake shoe replacement, the need to run 200 km to achieve the best braking effect, just change the shoe should be careful to drive.
