  • When to change the brake pads?

The time to replace car consumables such as pads and belts usually depends on how the car is used. However, if you have used the front brake pads for more than 20,000 kilometers, it is better to replace them. If the rear pads are disc type, they will need to be replaced after more than 20,000 kilometers.

Regarding the dynamo belt and timing belt, it should be said that if these parts are of the minimum required quality, they should easily work for at least 50,000 to 60,000 kilometers. But it has been seen that some low-quality components in the market have been damaged in functions lower than this figure; Therefore, when buying belts, especially timing belts, be sure to use the original and high-quality ones, so that you do not face the tearing of the part and serious damage to the valves or the engine.
