Schedule Brake Repair

A vehicle’s brake pads are an important part of its overall safety, and Santa Monica drivers need to rest assured you know when to replace brake pads. If you don’t do this at the right time, your brake pads could be so worn away that they do not provide you with the same stopping power, which leaves you and your passengers at risk. Instead of doing this, follow the information below to learn how to check your brake pads and keep your new or pre-owned model running efficiently with safety in mind.

Steps to Check Your Brake Pads

Most service centers include a brake inspection with their general service, but some do not. As a Beverly Hills driver, it’s important for you to know how to check your brake pads so you can keep your vehicle working properly. In addition, a brake pad change cost is much lower than a full brake replacement, so checking them often is recommended.

  • Feel your brake: When driving, pay attention to how your brake feels to your push. If the brake pad is worn out, your brake may send a vibration from the brake to your steering wheel.

  • Look at the wheel: When your brake pads start to wear, it will create a dust on your wheels. If you notice there is no dust on your wheels, it could mean your brake pad is completely worn out, which is a big safety risk.

  • Look at the brake pad: Some vehicles allow you to see the brake pad by looking through the wheel. If it seems to be very thin, then it’s a good idea to replace it.

  • Listen: When your brake pads are worn down, you’ll notice your brakes make a squeaky sound when pressed. If you notice this, have your brake pads replaced.

More Volkswagen Beetle Eyelashes

Volkswagen Beetle eyelashes are a fun way to customize your Beetle. They adhere to the area just above the headlights to give the already friendly front end of the Beetle an even more distinctive look. It’s just one way drivers customize their cars with VW Bug accessories. Find out today how you can customize your affordable VW Beetle in Santa Monica.

Add Car Eyelashes to Your Beetle To Turn Heads

If you’re considering adding Eyelashes to your Beetle, you’ll want to know the following information:

  • Most car eyelashes apply with automotive trim tape, the same tape used to adhere many different trim accessories.

  • Volkswagen Beetle eyelashes attach securely enough to drive at highway speeds, and they even stay on during touchless car washes.

  • Eyelashes that adhere with 3M double sided automotive trim tape won’t damage your paint.

  • If you decide to remove your car lashes to change up your car’s style, most can be taken off quickly with a citrus-powered cleaner.

Eyelashes add an extra element of style to your Beetle. Of course, you’ll need a car to apply them to, and that’s where Volkswagen Santa Monica comes in.
