Volkswagen Rear Brake Pad Replacement

Rear brake pad replacement is the process of only switching out the two brake pads for the rear of the vehicle. Even though it’s far more common to conduct a front brake pad replacement, there are some instances when this is necessary. When your technician does an inspection of your brake system, they’ll be able to tell if it’s a good idea to replace these brake pads. Get your brake system inspected about once a year, or every 20,000 to 30,000 miles. The general rule is to go with whichever of these comes first.


There is a wide range to the recommended brake pad replacement schedule – every 20,000 to 70,000 miles. This is why it’s a good idea to check the owner’s manual for your vehicle.


Why Replace My Rear Brake Pads?

Your brake pads can wear out fast the more that you use your brakes due to the creation of friction. Here are some signs to know when it’s time to do so.


  • Low Response Level – Your brakes aren’t as responsive as they once were. It may take you longer to come to a stop. This is potentially dangerous, so you need to have your brake system checked out ASAP.
  • Noisy Brakes – If your brakes are noisy or squeaky on a regular basis, then it’s a sure sign that there’s something wrong with them, and you should bring them in for a technician to run an inspection.
  • Vibrations – When your brake pads begin to wear down, it feels different as you press down on the brake. You may notice shaking sensations and vibrations. This also can indicate that your brake rotor is warped.
  • Car Pulls to the Side – If your vehicle pulls over to the side as you’re driving, this could mean that you have uneven wear on your brake pads.
  • Brake Warning Light – If this light comes on and stays on while you’re driving, get your brakes checked out.

Are Front Brake Pads Different from Rear Brake Pads?

The simple answer here is that, yes, front and rear brake pads are different. Since the front brake pads apply the most pressure when you’re braking, they are larger. They are usually designed to be more dense and out of materials that are better able to withstand the heat that’s generated by friction. They tend to wear out faster than rear brake pads.
