Volkswagen Brake Pad Service

Volkswagen Brake System & Front Brake Pads 101

The Volkswagen Brake System relies on hydraulics to get the job done every time that you push the brake pedal. Between the brake pedal and rotors where the stopping happens are several brake system components, such as the master cylinder, hydraulic brake fluid, lines, calipers, brake pads, and rotors.

Powerful braking comes down to how powerfully that brake system can clamp the pads against the rotors, and this all relies on the condition of the brake pads. Brake pads are designed to wear out over time; and when they do, they require brake pad replacement to secure reliable braking at factory specifications. It is also important to note that front brake pads generally wear out twice as fast as those in the rear due to handling additional force when braking.

Overview of Front Brake Pad Replacement

We complete front brake pad replacement according to factory specifications in a state-of-the-art service center that employs Volkswagen certified master technicians. Service starts when the certified technician removes the front wheel assemblies to expose the brake system. The front brake pads are removed and the entire brake system gets an inspection to ensure that it is in excellent condition to support the new brake pads. The expert technician then installs the Volkswagen OEM brake pads to secure reliable braking at factory specifications. Every service that we perform concludes with a complimentary multi-point inspection.
