Re: Brake pad wear indicators??

Although I don't know for sure because i'm too lazy to go check. I would be willing to bet that the do. As far as I know, wear indicators are integral with the brackets that hold the pads in place.

A front bumper in need of a body shop would be an indication of worn-out brakes.

The pads do have the audible wear indicators. You will hear the high pitched sound when the pads get too thin.

Thanks guys. I was doing some bench marking. Maybe nissan will get so fed up with the bosch brake system that they'll switch to our much superior ones.

Re: Brake pad wear indicators??

On a side note...do you guys find the noise level to be adequit when it hits full wear or is it hard to destinguish between "normal" brake noise and the indicator?

I'm not sure that many people have ever hit the pad wear indicator as many have had brakes replaced multiple times because of brake judder.

Re: Brake pad wear indicators??

i'm at 25k with the new brake kit, i'll let you know if it works.

i'm on my 4th set and it works great. I do hear a grind when i'm braking hard but its normal brake sounds. The clips aren't doing anything at this point because i haven't reached it but i suspect that to be very soon.

Re: Brake pad wear indicators??

4th set?? was this because they wore out fast or because of all the factory replacements due to judder?
