When should I change the brakes on my Porsche?
On average, your Porsche brakes should be replaced every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. However, driving conditions and habits can affect that number. If you are heavy on the brakes or drive on rough terrain a lot, you might need to get them changed at 25,000 miles. On the other hand, if you are careful with your brakes and drive in relatively nice condition, your brakes can last up to 80,000 miles. If you don’t know the last time you got new brakes, there are some signs you will notice when it’s time for new brakes. These signs include:
- You hear a squealing noise when driving. This is the sound of the wear indicators scarping against the rotor.
- You hear a clicking noise when braking. This is the sound of a brake holding device that has become loose and is now rattling.
- Braking takes longer. This is a result of the brakes fading due to applying the brakes over long distances. The brake components eventually won’t be able to generate the needed friction to brake faster.
- Your car pulls to one side when braking. This means that your brakes are wearing unevenly. Take your vehicle to a mechanic immediately as this problem could lead to stress on your steering rack.
- The brake pedal vibrates when pressed down. This is a sign that the brake pads have worn down and the adhesive is now smeared across the rotor.
