Audi Brake Service and Repair

Audi recommends a brake system inspection every 10,000 miles or once a year to check for damage, leaks, and the thickness of the brake pads. Conventional wisdom suggests brake pads should be replaced every 50,000 miles, although this is highly dependent on your driving habits. For example, stop-and-go traffic conditions cause brake pads to wear down faster. Furthermore, Audi recommends changing the brake fluid every two years.

What are signs that you need to replace your brakes?

  • Brake warning light illuminated on your dashboard
  • High pitched squealing - a built-in indicator that the brake pads are wearing
  • Grinding noises - the brake pads have worn through and the brake calipers are now rubbing against the rotors
  • "Soft" brake pedal feel - less resistance when you press down
  • It takes longer to come to a stop
  • Vehicle pulling to one side when braking
  • Brake pedal vibrates while braking - likely indicates warped brake rotors
  • A burning smell when braking
