Subaru Forester Front Brake Replacement

Above is a video outlining the replacement of pads and rotors on a Subaru Forester. Below I have listed some of the signs your brakes might be going out. Please comment below if you have any questions! 

How to do it

Fortunately, brake pads are designed to provide clear signals that they need to be replaced. Here are some ways to check them:

Listen to your brakes

  • Brake pads make a noise when they are worn out and need replacement. This noise will sound like metal scraping in the wheels when the car is moving. The sound will get louder as the brakes are used.
  • The brake is designed to make this noise as an early warning signal that the pads need to be changed.

Look at the wheels

  • Brake dust accumulation in the wheel is another sign of wear.
  • As the brake pads wear out, the amount of dust on the wheels decreases. Noticing cleaner wheels may be a sign that brake pads need replacement.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you. you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.
