Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

Yes, your Audi rotors will often last longer than your brake pads as long as you replace your pads before doing damage to your calipers or rotors. By not replacing your brake Audi pads in a timely manner you can damage the other components.

Audi Front Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Wear and tear on your brakes depends greatly on your driving habits and the type of brake pads your Audi has, but usually front brakes wear out before rear brakes at 30,000 - 60,000 miles because they are typically under much less stress.

How long do Audi brake rotors last?

This depends heavily on the type of rotors, your driving style, and the type of vehicle you're driving. Audi rotors need to be replaced every 30,000 - 80,000 miles depending on the factors above. Consult your Audi maintenance manual for more information. Remember, it's always a good idea to have your entire brake system inspected by a franchise dealer with the proper training to spot potential issues before the cause damage to other components of your Audi brake system. Audi Nashua offers a variety of brake specials including free diagnostics. Call us at 888-284-9496 or schedule an appointment online today!

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Audi brake system is comprised of the following key components:

·         Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and applies pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's exceedingly adequate to keep Audi brake pads classic by replacing them as they undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Audi maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.

·         Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Audi.

·         Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Audi brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected ordinarily for cracks and back-up symptoms of deterioration. Check your Audi maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.

·         Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.

·         Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Audi Nashua find the best type of brake rotors for your Audi

·         Backing plate & return spring holds your Audi braking system together so it can function correctly.

·         Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Audi rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.

·         Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at any times.

·         Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Audi brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

How often do brake rotors need to be replaced?

Typically you will need to replace rotors in pairs starting with the front axle of your Audi as they tend to wear out quicker. Audi rotors should be replaced by 70,000 miles but may wear out faster depending on your driving habits and a host of other factors. Schedule an appointment online with Audi Nashua to get a free multipoint inspection on your entire brake system.
