Mercury Brake Pad Set Guides

FAQs—Mercury Brake Pad Set

  1. Yesterday, when I had to drive around the city, I noticed that I had to push the brake pedal farther than I used to in order to slow down or get my car to stop. This hasn’t happened before. The brakes still work, but I’m afraid that there is a problem. What can probably be the issue here?
  2. If you have to press harder on the pedal and it requires more pressure to stop the car or slow it down, the brake pads should be checked, as this can be a symptom of early brake pad wear. If they’re too thin or damaged, replace the old pads right away so they won’t ruin other parts, leading to more expensive repairs. Aside from the brake pads, also inspect other brake system parts to rule out other possible brake issues.

  3. I just had the brake pads changed a month ago, so I’m quite surprised that there’s still some noise coming from the brakes. How do I fix this brake problem? What can I do to eliminate the noise?
  4. Loose parts may be the source of the vibration that leads to noise. To fix the noise on the brakes, you have to check for loose components, such as brake pads and calipers, and adjust them accordingly. So the brake pads won’t wiggle or move around the assembly, it’ll be best to replace loose or damaged shims and clips. If this won’t fix the brake problem, another thing you can try is using a dampening paste on the back of the pads. Aside from the pads, you’d also want to have the rotors or drums inspected for scores, grooves, or any other form of damage or wear. Rough or uneven surface can actually make the brake pads chatter or jerk. The rotors may need to be resurfaced or replaced altogether in this case.

  5. How can I tell when my brake pads start wearing out? What are the signs?
  6. Brake noises such as screeching, squealing, rubbing, and grinding are symptoms of brake pad wear. If you hear any of these when braking, you have to check the pads for wear or damage, as well as the brake shoes and surrounding components such as brake rotors to identify the source of the problem. Other indicators of wear include having too much brake dust on the wheels and experiencing vibrations when pressing the brake pedal. If the pedal feels stiff or spongy, the pads have to be checked to see if they’re already too thin. If the vehicle pulls to one side when braking even if you don’t turn the steering wheel, or if it takes longer for you to stop the vehicle or slow it down, the brake pads may no longer be in their best working condition.

  7. How long do brake pads typically last? I had to replace mine just after 25,000 miles.
  8. Some mechanics and brake companies would say that the typical lifespan of brake pads is anywhere between 30,000 and 70,000 miles, while others would place the average at 50,000 miles. However, a wide set of factors can affect the condition of the pads, such as your driving habits, road conditions, brake maintenance, type of brake pads and rotors used, and kind of vehicle. If you have to replace the brake pads just after 25,000 miles, this could mean a lot of things. Perhaps you frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic or engage in hard braking. You may be using a larger vehicle such as a truck, SUV, or an off-road 4x4.

  9. How can I make the new brake pads last longer? Any tip or suggestion?
  10. Braking from high speed can accelerate wear on the brake pads/brakes. Therefore, driving at a moderate speed can help prolong the life of the pads. Coasting is also a good practice. It’ll help if you avoid pressing on the brakes a lot. Removing unnecessary weight from the vehicle such as luggage and other cargo won’t only be good for the tires but also for the brakes. For preventive maintenance, top up the brake fluid before it sinks below the required level. You also have to check for contaminated fluid and make sure that you change it before it ruins any brake part. Invest in top-quality brake pads. Get a set that matches the requirements of your vehicle and the driving condition.

  11. Why do brake pads need a break-in or bed-in period? What are the benefits?
  12. By bedding-in the brake pads and rotors, you can properly mate them and ensure that they’ll perform well. This process takes out impurities from the brake pads’ surface. It allows a thin layer of pad residue to be laid down on the surface of the rotor, which makes heating and cooling faster during braking for proper conditioning.

  13. I’m looking for a new Mercury brake pad set. What are decent choices for a daily driver? I’m driving a compact vehicle and needs something that can provide good stopping power without the need to warm them up.
  14. For daily drivers, a great choice for brake pads would be ceramic or organic pads. These pads offer decent braking power for day-to-day driving and don’t need to be warmed up before they can give you a good grip.
