Shop BMW 540i Replacement Brake Pads

Insist on a real BMW to provide agile footing as well as power to spare. BMW autos have established a long and well-earned history of delivering luxury-level style. When it comes to dependability, car enthusiasts can rely on BMW, a respected builder of long-lasting and innovative automobiles. To keep the resale value and luxury you made an investment in with your BMW 540i, it's crucial to use only the very best brand name car parts. Would it be smart to budget a large sum on a beautiful luxury vehicle, only to cut corners on replacement parts? Bypass needless hazards in your driving by ensuring that your car has the safety parts that you desire. The BMW 540i Brake Pads are located on each wheel and are fastened to the brake rotors and provide the necessary friction to reduce the speed of spinning wheels. When the pedal is pressed down the pads push against the car's brake rotor and the momentum and energy of the vehicle is changed into heat energy. As the brakes are used, heat energy wears away the brake systems until they must eventually be replaced - ideally well before the other brake components start to take damage. Purchasing a BMW was an intelligent choice, now keeping it in excellent condition is even smarter. Whether it's your Brake Pads or the Clutch Disc, maintaining your cherished vehicle with premium quality parts should pay off, time after time. Shop PartsGeek any time you require top quality car and truck parts and you'll be rewarded by our outstanding service and a great price with every order.

Research on Brake Pads for BMW 540i

Brake pads provide a friction surface to stop the brake disc from turning. This is the process by which your car slows down and stops. At the same time, the brake pads wear down a little each time you step on the pedal. Eventually, they wear so thin there's little left to provide sufficient braking power. Direct contact between the caliper and brake rotor can cause dangerous and expensive damage. Changing your brake pads regularly will prolong the life of your brakes and ensure they remain reliable.

How Brake Pads Work

Brake pads are typically constructed with metal fragments held together by a strong resin. They attach to the inner surface of the caliper, and contact the rotor surface when the brake pedal is pushed down. Pad material wears onto the rotor and the combination of material on the pad and disc creates more friction when braking, increasing efficiency. A typical brake pad is 12 millimeters thick when it is new. Once it is measured at three millimeters, a mechanic will recommend replacing it and paying the BMW brake pads replacement cost.

Symptoms of Brake Pad Wear

The sound of your brakes will usually tell you if there is excessive brake pad wear. Listen for screeching, squealing, or other high-pitched, ear-piercing sounds. There's often a metal tab that is exposed when the pads wear thin, which creates a sound when it touches the rotor. Also, as the brake pads get thinner, you may have to push your foot farther down on the pedal. More pressure may have to be applied to stop the car as well. The brake warning light is another indicator that new brake pads are needed and that the BMW brake rotors will be in danger of warping if replacements aren't installed soon. If you start to feel vibrations through the brake pedal or steering wheel, the rotors may already be warped and need to be replaced too.

When Should You Change Your Brake Pads?

Worn brake pads should be replaced right away, without delay. For mileage details, specific to your car, check the owner's manual. Depending on your driving style and the type of pad installed, brake pads can last for 25,000 up to 70,000 miles. The average for BMW OEM brake pads is more or less around 50,000 miles.

Cost of BMW 540i Brake Pad Replacement

Before taxes and other fees, replacing the front brake pads costs $250 to $342. A rear set runs in the range of $212 to $288. Brake pads are generally inexpensive, and you may likely spend more for labor than the actual parts. Still, PartsGeek.com can help you save.
