Recently, some car owners complained:
Put on new brake pads,
Why is the braking distance longer?
Actually, this is normal.
The new brake pads and the used brake pads have different degrees of wear and thickness. After the used brake pad and the brake disc are run in, the contact surface between the two is large, and there will be a lot of unevenness on the brake pad, and the braking force is strong; the surface of the new brake pad is relatively smooth, and the contact surface with the brake disc is small, the braking force will be As it descends, the braking distance becomes longer.
Therefore, after replacing the new brake pads, it needs to go through a period of running-in to achieve the best braking effect. The following editor will introduce a method of running in the brake pads:
1. After the installation is completed, find a place with good road conditions and few cars to start running in;
2. Accelerate the car to 60 km/h;
3. Lightly step on the brakes to reduce the vehicle speed to 10km/h-20km/h;
4. Release the brake, and then drive for a few kilometers to reduce the temperature of the brake disc and brake pad;
5. Repeat steps 2-4 at least 10 times.
The running-in method of the new brake pads is to use the method of splitting and spotting as much as possible to brake, and try not to brake suddenly before the running-in is good. When running in, be sure to drive carefully to avoid accidents.
