What Does the Brake Pad Wear Indicator Warning Light Mean?

The brake pad wear indicator warning light comes on when the brake pads are detected to be too thin.

by Spencer Cates on September 08, 2016

The brake wear indicator light is a fairly new addition to today’s automobiles. Mainly found on higher end cars, this indicator light will let you know when it’s time to get your brakes checked out. The light will come on before the brakes are completely worn out to give you enough time to replace them before any damage occurs. Refer to your owner’s manual to see how many miles you should still have on the brake pads after the light comes on.

What the brake pad wear indicator warning light means

Quite simply, when this light is on, the sensor in the brakes has determined that the brake pads are too thin. There are 2 main ways that auto manufacturers achieve this diagnosis. The first is by using a small sensor embedded into the brake pad material itself. As the pad wears out, the sensor will eventually come into contact with the rotor which completes a circuit and turns this indicator light on. The second method is a position sensor that measures how much the pads have to move before the brakes are applied.

What to do when the brake pad wear indicator warning light is on

If the light comes on, you should bring the vehicle to a certified technician to have the brakes replaced. More than likely, the light will shut off with the new pads installed. However, any issues with the sensors themselves will cause the light to turn on.

Is it safe to drive with the brake pad wear indicator warning light on?

It is safe to drive with this light on for a short amount of time. As mentioned earlier, the light will come on when you still have some brake pad material left, but if you wait too long and continue driving, you will run out of material and damage the rotors. Without any pad material, the brakes won’t stop the car as quickly so waiting too long is dangerous and increases the risks of getting into a collision.

As always, our certified technicians are available to help identify any issues you may be experiencing with your brakes or wear indicators.

The Definitive Guide To Volkswagen Mk7 GTI Brakes

 

The Mk7 Volkswagen Golf GTI brakes are based around an evolution of over revolution concept, ensuring cost-effective and reliable performance for the sporty hatchback. By utilizing many components from the outgoing PQ35 Mk5/6 chassis, along with some new MQB-specific parts, the Mk7 GTI offers excellent braking performance with very little required maintenance. Because of the modular design, there are many upgrades and aftermarket braking options as well, including some ‘big brake’ options from the higher-end Audi RS and Porsche models.

Mk7 VW GTI Brake Specifications

01_VW Mk7 GTI front brakes

There are two different braking systems available on the Mk7 GTI, no matter what the trim level. There is the “base” system, standard on most S and SE models, and the ‘Performance Pack,’ which was available as an add-on option or standard, depending on the exact year and model GTI. Both systems use regular steel discs with electronic ABS and stability management and traction control as standard.

Not all Mk7 Volkswagen Golf GTI models come equipped with a brake pad wear sensor, with 2015 models in particular not coming equipped with the sensor option. If delivered with the option, the pad wear sensor is typically installed on the left front inner brake pad. 

The base GTI braking system utilizes 312mm ventilated front discs and 272mm solid (non-vented) rear discs, with single-piston sliding calipers at all four corners. These components are a direct carry-over from the Mk6 GTI, and both brake pads and discs are interchangeable between the late Mk6 GTI and base Mk7 GTI braking systems. 

02_VW Mk7 GTI rear brakes

The Performance Pack braking system utilizes the majority of the Golf R brake parts, consisting of 340mm ventilated front discs and 310mm ventilated rear discs. However, there are some differences as the Mk7 GTI with Performance Pack utilizes a manual parking brake, and the Golf R uses an electronic parking brake. Because of this, the rear brake pads are not compatible between the R and GTI Performance Pack even though the discs can be used on either application.

03_VW Mk7 GTI Performance pack front brakes

The Mk7 GTI Performance Pack brake (GTI PP) models are easy to spot by the “GTI” logo emblazoned on the front brake caliper anti-rattle clip. Checking the rear discs for a vented disc is another clear giveaway. Similar to the base brake system, the discs on the Performance Pack braking system are pulled from older models and are the same as those used on the Mk5 R32, Mk6 Golf R, TTS, and Passat 3.6 4MOTION. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Rear Brake Differences: Performance Pack VS. Golf R

05_Mk7 GTI Golf R rear brake pad comparison

There are two possible rear brake pad options for the Mk7 GTI models depending on whether it has the Performance Pack or standard base brake package. The standard 272mm solid rear disc brake pads have small integrated anti-rattle springs on the tabs of each brake pad. The 310mm vented Performance Pack rear brake pads have a similar-looking pad shape and tabs, but you’ll notice they have a separate anti-rattle clip inserted into the caliper carrier before the pads are installed, and there is no integrated spring. Although the Mk7 GTI Performance Pack and the Golf R share identical front brake pads, front 340mm discs, and rear 310mm discs, they do not share the same rear brake pad. The friction surface is about the same, but the Golf R uses the electronic rear parking brake, and the pads have noticeably larger guide tabs with hooks.

All Mk7 GTI models use standard DOT 4 brake fluids shared with the clutch hydraulic system on manual transmission-equipped examples. Brake fluid capacity is approximately 1.2 L (1.3 qt) and should be changed three years after delivery and every two years after that point. 

All factory GTI brakes use a single-piston caliper on slider pins, with two brake pads per disc. The brake pads are held by the caliper carrier and are specific to the caliper and size of the disc being used. 

Brake life on the Mk7 GTI varies greatly depending on the driver and conditions the car sees regularly. The more stop and go and city driving, the more quickly the brakes will wear. Brakes should be checked every 10,000 miles, with a first replacement likely in the 20-40,000 mile range for many users. A GTI that sees a lot of time on the highway may easily see over 60,000-70,000 miles, but like any other wear item, it depends primarily on the driver. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Brake Service & Repair

04_Worn brake pads and backing plates

There are a few common things to look for on the Mk7 GTI when it comes to brake wear. Assuming the brakes are still offering strong stopping power and don’t have any obvious signs of performance loss, the first thing to look at are the pads themselves. With any of the factory GTI wheels, it should be pretty easy to get an eye on the outside brake pads on all four corners of the car. The minimum thickness on the pad material itself, not including the backing plate, should be at least 2mm. 

Keep in mind that inner brake pads will almost always wear more quickly than those easily visible on the outside due to seeing more heat because of less airflow. Because of this, replacing the brake pad set when the exterior pads are worn to approximately 5mm will help to ensure that you don’t wear down to the backing plate on the inside pads. Another rule of thumb is to replace your brake pads when the remaining pad material is slightly less thick than the backing plate itself. 

06_Worn brake discs with grooving

Brake discs are more difficult to judge when it comes to wear, but there are a few easy indicators to help you know when they’ve reached the end of their useful service life. First, if there is a substantial lip on the outer edge of the disc, it is an indication that the disc should be replaced. Wear limits vary depending on the original disc thickness, but 3mm of total disc wear is a generally acceptable range. Heavy grooving on the surface of the disc can indicate uneven pad wear but doesn’t necessarily mean the brakes are in need of replacement. 

New brake pads should always be fitted to either new or resurfaced brake discs. Because the wear limits of the discs are so close to as-delivered thickness, for example, 25mm new / 22mm worn on the 312mm GTI front discs, replacing the discs with new every time you replace the pads is generally good practice. 

Squealing from your Mk7 GTI’s brakes, although annoying, is not necessarily an indication that they need to be replaced. Squeaking or squealing brakes on your GTI results from the brake pad vibrating at an audible frequency. This could be due to uneven wear, improper break-in, or external dirt, dust, and debris creating issues. As long as the pads have plenty of material, the discs are not obviously worn or damaged, and the car is still stopping as it should, squealing brakes may be annoying, but they are not a requirement for replacement. It’s also worth noting that more aggressive higher performance brake pads are more likely to be noisy. 

There are a few options to stop your GTI’s brakes from squealing. The first is to attempt to re-bed the brake pads. Bedding is a process of breaking in the pad and discs surfaces to each other, usually by slowly bringing the brakes up to an even temperature with several slow and gradual stops, followed by several hard stops. This should aid in distributing an even layer of pad material onto the disc surface. There are many methods for bedding in brake pads, so check with your brake pad manufacturer for their recommendations for the best results. 

07_LIQUI MOLY Brake paste_LM20240

Finally, removing the current brake pads and cleaning and re-lubing the carriers and sliders can help to free up the pads and avoid any sticking or vibration, and therefore noise. 

A common complaint with any disc-brake equipped car like the Mk7 GTI is‘ warped rotors,’ which results in uneven stopping and a physical pulsing feeling you can feel in the car and sometimes in the brake pedal. Warped discs or rotors are usually the result of uneven brake pad deposits on the disc surface, which can be caused by any number of things. First, low quality, low-carbon discs will heat and cool unevenly as they’re used, causing ‘hot spots’ on the disc surface. The brake pad material will stick to the hot spots, causing a high spot on the surface and that feeling of a warped rotor. 

08_VW Mk7 GTI pad deposits on brake disc

Aside from using premium brake pads and rotors on your GTI, if you’ve been using the brakes a lot and they’re hot, don’t immediately stop and sit with your foot on the brakes if you can help it. This time spent stationery with hot brakes is the easiest way to cause uneven pad material transfer. 

Next up is brake fluid. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. Old brake fluid has a lower boiling point and more compressibility than fresh fluid. As the fluid ages, and especially if you use the brakes a lot and get the fluid hot, the pedal may get soft and spongy. Flushing the brake fluid out every 2 years, or less if you are exceptionally hard on the brakes in your car, will help to ensure the longest life from the hydraulic components and the best performance.  

Although it is extremely uncommon, leaks in the braking system can occur. On a Mk7 GTI, this is almost certainly going to be due to physical damage or some kind of servicing error, but in the event that it does occur, the Mk7 GTI does have a low brake fluid warning light and indicator. Excessively worn pads can also cause this light to come on, but if you are experiencing a ‘soft’ brake pedal that goes to the floor or a pedal you need to pump to maintain pressure, you should immediately stop the car and inspect for problems. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI OE Brake Alternatives

While Genuine Volkswagen brake parts are of high quality, they also tend to be more expensive than many quality OE alternatives. No one component is more or less important when it comes to quality and performance. The three major pieces of brake pads, brake discs, and brake fluid all play their part one way or the other. Thankfully there are several good brands available for replacement brake parts for the Mk7 GTI. 

09_Textar ZImmerman Mk7 GTI Brake kit

There are several excellent brake disc manufacturers to choose from for your GTI regardless of whether it is equipped with the base model brakes or Performance Pack option. Of the many brands available, Zimmerman, ATE, Pagid, and Meyle offer some of the best replacement discs on the market. We even use off the shelf Zimmerman brake discs on the rear of our GTI TCR race cars. You can bet that if it’s good enough to stand up to the use and abuse that we put them through on the track, they’re a great choice for replacing your factory GTI discs. 

Brake pads are one area where things can be especially overwhelming when it comes to choosing replacement parts. There are so many brands and compounds; it’s easy to get overwhelmed with choices. Basically, you want to decide if you want a low-dust pad option or not and narrow your selection from there. If the dust from the factory brake pads doesn’t bother you, there are excellent semi-metallic OE-style alternatives from Pagid, Textar, TRW, and ATE. 

10_EBC Redstuff for VW GTI performance pack

For lower dust without compromising on performance, a ceramic brake pad might be the better choice. Ceramic pads tend to be very quality-dependent when it comes to achieving decent braking performance, as some low-quality variants may compromise stopping power to achieve lower dust. We’ve found that TRW, ATE, and EBC offer ceramic low-dust formulations, which can still stop your GTI like a GTI. 

11_pentosin DOT4 super brake fluid vw mk7 gti

There are several quality choices when it comes to choosing DOT 4 brake fluid. Pentosin Super offers excellent quality for the money, while ATE Type 200 offers a higher boiling temperature and is, therefore, better suited to sportier driving. Both meet all requirements for the Mk7 GTI and offer long life and consistent performance. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Brake Upgrades

If you’re a driving enthusiast and enjoy putting your Mk7 GTI to work on backroads or on the occasional weekend autocross or track day, there are many performance options available, from mild to wild. 

Performance brake discs generally don’t contribute to substantially better braking on their own. Slotted or cross-drilled sport discs, while certainly looking the part, offer a few potential upsides aside from more aggressive looks. We’ll look at slotted discs first and then discuss drilled options. 

12_VW Mk7 GTI Stoptech slotted disc

First and foremost, the slots offer a stronger initial bite on brake application. This physically wears the pads more quickly but allows for more confident braking regardless of the brake temperature or pad type. It also offers a means to quickly and effectively evacuate water from the disc surface in instances of heavy rain. Lastly, slots can help to keep the pad surfaces fresh and wearing in an even fashion. 

High quality slotted brake discs are available for the Mk7 GTI from Stoptech and EBC Brakes. The Stoptech discs are directional as well. 

13_zimmerman EBC Mk7 GTI brake kit

Drilled rotors are what many think of first when it comes to performance brakes. Drilled brake disc rotors come as standard on many performance cars, and when done properly by a manufacturer, they can offer some performance benefits. First, like a slotted disc, they offer a mild increase in bite compared to a plain disc. They also aid with water evacuation, but unlike a slotted disc, they may result in less-even wear of the pads themselves.

Additionally, in extreme use, the holes can introduce cracking of the disc surface. Some light cracking of the surface can be expected with racing brake pads with any disc type, but the chance of a crack that can cause a major failure is higher with drilled discs, generally speaking. As a rule, if you use cross-drilled brake discs on track, be sure to inspect them regularly for signs of cracking. If you see a crack and either joins two holes or runs from a hole to the edge of the disc, it should be changed immediately. 

High-quality cross-drilled brake discs for the Mk7 GTI are available from Stoptech and Zimmerman. 

Both slotted and drilled discs can result in more mechanical noise from the brakes on application. This is usually more of a ‘whirring’ noise and is just a result of the pad material being pressed over the holes or slots as the disc rotates. 

If you want to significantly improve the performance of your Mk7 GTI’s brakes, upgrading to a better pad is by far the best money spent. The brake pad compound does more in determining the optimum operating temperature and overall temperature range capacity of the brake system and is the primary difference between “race” brakes and street car brakes. It’s worth noting that very few performance brake pads are low dust, but the trade-off is more than worth it if you’re looking for the best. 

For street performance and an occasional autocross, there are several good pads out there for the Mk7 GTI that are cost-effective and work well for casual performance use. Hawk HPS, Stoptech Sport, and EBC Green pads are both lower dust, street performance pads, which are long-wearing and offer a reasonable improvement over factory pads. EBC Yellow are higher dust but offer substantially more stopping power for street and autocross use. 

EBC Yellow can be used as a good entry-level track-day pad but are very sensitive to being pushed beyond their maximum temperature range. They will wear very quickly when this happens, so if you’re on your way to being a full-blown track rat, stepping into a more capable pad is highly recommended.

 

Mk7 VW GTI Track Ready Braking Parts 

14_Ferodo DS2500_Mk7 GTI PP Golf R front brake pads

 

Mk7 VW Golf GTI Brake Pads

There are very few pads that can be safely used on the street while also being capable of solid performance on track. The Ferodo DS2500 is probably the best dual-purpose brake pad available for the Mk7 GTI. They have good stopping power when cold, they are not excessively dusty or noisy, and can hold up to repeated heavy track use when paired with a proper racing brake fluid. We use these on our own project Mk7 GTI and have been blown away by the performance and the longevity of these pads. 

Dedicated racing pads from Hawk, such as the DTC series, Pagid, or boutique racing brake pad brands Race Technologies, G-Lock, or Carbotech, can offer higher overall performance but at a cost. The pads are more expensive, fitment can be limited, they are very dusty and noisy, and they will wear brake rotors excessively when used on the street, below their operating range. For this reason, we don’t recommend these for mixed-use vehicles or for use on the street. 

 

Mk7 VW Golf GTI Brake Fluid

A proper performance brake fluid is an inexpensive way to raise the overall temperature capacity and performance of your Mk7 GTI’s brakes. Even if you don’t track your GTI, a higher temp brake fluid can make a difference when it comes to driving performance. ATE Type 200 is a DOT-legal formulation of their old Super Blue Racing fluid and is a good bang for the buck if you plan on street use only.

15_castrol SRF brake fluid for Mk7 GTI

More modern formulations offer a big increase in temperature capacity and performance. LIQUI MOLY has a superb racing brake fluid available in small 250ml bottles, which saves you from throwing away new but unused fluid. Motul RBF600 and RBF660 are the industry standard for most HDPE and club racing drivers and offer the highest performance for the price. Castrol SRF is the best of the best, literally the same brake fluid they use in professional racing series around the world, but it is quite expensive. 

 

Mk7 VW Golf GTI Brake Lines

16_Stoptech brake line kit for Mk7 GTI

The final piece of the puzzle for upgrading the brakes of their Mk7 GTI is swapping the factory plain rubber brake lines for a set of braided stainless steel brake lines. The factory brake lines are stout and do a fine job but will expand slightly under heavy use. The reality is this is pretty minimal, but it does add to the spongy feeling of factory brakes, and the reinforced braided stainless steel lines offer a stronger and more firm pedal feel. High-quality lines, such as those from Stoptech, are DOT approved and safe for both on and off-track use. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Big Brake Kits

17_VW mk7 GTI TCR APR Racing BBK front brakes

A ‘big brake’ kit is another popular modification on the Mk7 GTI and usually means that the kit is put together with an aftermarket multi-piston caliper rather than simply being bigger than the factory. A multi-piston caliper can offer improved cooling and more even pad pressure over the factory GTI brakes, and of course, they look great behind a nice set of wheels. Some kits also offer easier brake pad changes, making the swap from street to track pads a much easier process. Some modern BBK kits have gone to monoblock calipers in search of the stiffest design, which makes swapping a pad more or less the same process as the factory brakes. 

The pads supplied with 99% of the ‘big brake’ kits on the market are more in the range of a street performance pad, so merely upgrading to one of these kits is not enough to get the best performance. As mentioned above, better brake pads are the key to the best braking performance for your Mk7 GTI. Stoptech and Brembo make some of the best complete aftermarket BBK kits, with a huge range of brake pads and service parts available. There are plenty of boutique brands as well, but it’s worth looking at the availability of spare brake pads, caliper rebuild kits, and replacement brake discs before making your decision. 

The factory Performance Pack brakes on the Mk7 GTI are very tough to beat, so if your GTI is equipped with these, upgrading pads, discs, and fluids is more than enough for most owners. If your GTI is equipped with the base 312mm/272mm brakes, upgrading to a set of Performance Pack brakes is a nice OEM+ option. They are quiet, service-free, and with the brake pads and fluid are more than capable of even heavy on-track use.

18_MK7 GTI Clubsport TT RS Dual cast brake disc rotor

The European-only GTI Clubsport features trick lightweight cross-drilled dual-cast 340mm discs, which are similar to those used on the TT RS and 991 Porsche GT3 models. By using aluminum for the bell and spokes, and the heavier and more durable cast iron for the friction surface, a dual-cast disc removes unsprung weight and offers the performance benefit of a floating disc without the cost. These can be used on any Performance Pack GTI or Golf R with the factory 340mm front brakes and weigh up to 20% less than an equivalent size standard cast disc. 

19_Audi TT RS brakes Mk5 Mk6 Mk7 GTI

Thanks to the modular design put into use on the Volkswagen and Audi lines in the mid-2000s, there are some higher-performance options able to be borrowed from other models for the Mk7 GTI and Golf R. The first kit is the Brembo 4-piston 370mm braking system from the 8J TT RS, which although popular is harder to source these days thanks to the age and relative rarity of the TT RS model.

The current most popular option, which is a lot more economical and easier to fit behind smaller wheels, is to use the 4-piston Brembo calipers from the Porsche Macan or Audi TTS and match them to the 345mm R32 front brake discs. Both the 8J TT RS and Macan / TTS kits use the popular “1001” pad plate used by many other performance models such as the Subaru STI, Lancer EVO, and multiple GM products, including the Corvette. It is worth noting that these kits play well with the brake master cylinder size on the Mk7 GTI, and pedal feel, travel, and effort remain in the correct range.

Be wary of the popular DIY big brake kits, such as those using Brembo 17z and 18z 6-piston calipers from the Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, and VW Touareg. While these are physically able to be bolted onto the spindles of the Mk7, they have a larger piston surface area and will result in mismatched bias, a longer pedal, and less real braking performance. They look awesome, but they’re not the best performing choice for the GTI. 

 

Special Tools Needed For Mk7 VW GTI Brake Replacement

Replacing the brakes on your Mk7 GTI is one of the easiest jobs to DIY in the comfort of your own driveway, garage, or even in the street in front of your apartment. Spending a few hours doing this job yourself with one of our Zimmerman/Textar brake kits could easily save you as much as $600 compared to a normal dealership service. That said, there are a few tools you’ll need in order to complete the job safely.

Euro+ Brake Pads from Bendix, Install on VW MK5 Golf GTI

At Bendix, we’ve recently released our all new Euro+ Brake Pad Kits specially designed for all leading European vehicles.

We figured it would be great to get some feedback from leading workshop Heasman Steering and one lucky participant to be a part of our Test Pilot program once again. This time we’ve got a VW MK5 Golf GTi to test out our new Euro+ brake pads.

Euro+ brake pads from Bendix is the complete brake pad kit including all clips, pads, shims, sensors and more, where contained in OE equivalents so you can be assured that all components are the exact fit every time.

The Euro+ brake pads are your OE replacements meeting the exact standards of premium manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi and Volkswagen to name a few. We have a feeling our friends at Heasman Steering are going to enjoy this new product with the amount of European passenger, luxury and sport cars we see inside their workshop on a regular basis.

This complete European brake pad kit meets the ECE Regulation 90, which means you are fitting quality brake pads specifically designed for European vehicles and engineered for optimum performance, braking synergy and driving comfort.

We already had the Golf on the lift so we began cracking away on the brake pad install. Before you start, remove the brake fluid cap and ensure there is space for the fluid to rise without overflowing! The install process is fairly straight forward. Nothing out of the ordinary from your normal brake pad install. Depending on your vehicle you might need to unclip the brake pad level sensor.

On this particular Golf you will need to remove the outer caliper clip holding the top section before you proceed with the removal of the existing pads. From here you can remove the rubber caps covering the caliper bolts and then remove. Using a suitable lever, push the caliper away from the pads. Remove and support caliper.

Pictured above is the existing installed brake pad alongside our new Euro+ pad. Check out the pad thickness difference! Here you can just catch a glimpse of the high friction Blue Titanium Stripe on the brake pad surface. This technology has been introduced by Bendix and designed to rapidly mate the rotor when the brakes are first applied. This way full braking performance is achieved instantly, eliminating the need for you to bed in the brakes. You’ll feel the difference, and the pads will be bedded-in in just a few stops on your first test drive.

The Euro+ has been designed for quiet and smooth braking performance. It also has reduced dust for cleaner braking and keeping your wheels cleaner!

Before we installed the new Euro+ pads we did clean of the area we are working on with some Bendix Brake Part Cleaner/Degreaser.

TIP: The MK5 Golf GTi has the brake wear sensor clip on the front left brake assembly. The pad with the clip goes directly to the caliper and the other to the front of the disc.

Before we place the caliper back into place we apply some Bendix Ceramic High Performance Synthetic Lubricant to the caliper contact areas. But making sure we keep the lubricant off friction material and rotors.

All done!

“The new Euro+ brake pads are a great product and being a complete kit you have everything you need to complete a brake pad install. This is great for us as a workshop we’ll definitely be doing a few pad installs throughout the year which will save us time. Before the install this morning I took the Golf for a spin around the block of our workshop and to be honest I didn’t think it needed its brake pads to be replaced. But as soon as I drove the car with the new Euro+ pads I could feel the difference instantly. The initial bite was great but also a much smoother pedal feel. There was also minimal to no noise. Bendix have told us the braking capacity has also been vastly improved over the OE pads and their tests have shown rims stay cleaner with Euro+. I’m keen to see these perform over the next few months but if you check back in a few months I’ll be happy to share my thoughts with you.” – Chris (Heasman Steering Mechanic)

Replacing your brake pads is a very easy job to perform on your Volkswagen GTI MkV and a great way to get started on 'Doing it yourself'. In general, you should inspect your brake pads and rotors about every 25,000 miles, and replace them if the material lining of the pad is worn down enough to trigger the pad replacement sensor or there is less than a quarter inch of material on the pad. In reality, most people don't inspect their pads very often, and usually wait until they see the little brake-warning lamp appear on the dashboard.' It's a wise idea to replace the pads, and inspect your discs as soon as you see that warning lamp go on.

If you ignore the warning lamp, you may indeed get to the point of metal on metal contact, where the metal backing of the pads are contacting the brake discs.' Using the brakes during this condition will not only give you inadequate braking, but will also begin to wear grooves in your brake discs.' Once the discs are grooved, they are damaged, and there is often no way to repair them.' Resurfacing will sometimes work, but often the groove cut will be deeper than is allowed by OEM specifications.' If your pads are grabbing or pulsing when you come to a stop, there is a very good chance your rotors are warped and in need of replacement as well.

First thing you need to do is get the car up on jack stands and the front wheels removed. Please refer to our article on jacking up your car for more information. Be sure to wear safety goggles anytime you work under your vehicle.

The Definitive Guide To Volkswagen Mk7 GTI Brakes

 

The Mk7 Volkswagen Golf GTI brakes are based around an evolution of over mcquades softball tournament 2018 concept, ensuring cost-effective and reliable performance for the sporty hatchback. By utilizing many components from the outgoing PQ35 Mk5/6 chassis, along with some new MQB-specific parts, the Mk7 GTI offers excellent braking performance with very little required maintenance. Because of the modular design, there are many upgrades and aftermarket braking options as well, including some ‘big brake’ options from the higher-end Audi RS and Porsche models.

Mk7 VW GTI Brake Specifications

01_VW Mk7 GTI front brakes

There are two different braking systems available on the Mk7 GTI, no matter what the trim vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor. There is the “base” system, standard on most S and SE models, and the ‘Performance Pack,’ which was available as an add-on option or standard, depending on the exact year and model GTI. Both systems use regular steel discs with electronic ABS and stability management and traction control as standard.

Not all Mk7 Volkswagen Golf GTI models come equipped with a brake pad wear sensor, with 2015 models in particular not coming equipped with the sensor option. If delivered with the option, the pad wear sensor is typically installed on the left front inner brake pad. 

The base GTI braking system utilizes 312mm ventilated front discs and 272mm solid (non-vented) rear discs, with single-piston sliding calipers at all four corners. These components are a direct carry-over from the Mk6 GTI, and both brake pads and discs are interchangeable between the late Mk6 GTI and base Mk7 GTI braking systems. 

02_VW Mk7 GTI rear brakes

The Performance Pack braking system utilizes the majority of the Golf R brake parts, consisting of 340mm ventilated front discs and 310mm ventilated rear discs. However, there are some differences as the Mk7 Vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor with Performance Pack utilizes a manual parking brake, and the Golf R uses an electronic parking brake. Because of this, the rear brake pads are not compatible between the R and GTI Performance Pack even though the discs can be used on either application.

03_VW Mk7 GTI Performance pack front brakes

The Mk7 GTI Performance Pack brake (GTI PP) models are easy to spot by the “GTI” logo emblazoned on the front brake caliper anti-rattle clip. Checking the rear discs for a vented disc is another clear giveaway. Similar to the base brake system, the discs on the Performance Pack braking system are pulled from older models and are the same as those used on the Mk5 R32, Mk6 Golf R, TTS, and Passat 3.6 4MOTION. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Rear Brake Differences: Performance Pack VS. Golf R

05_Mk7 GTI Golf R rear brake pad comparison

There are two possible rear brake pad options for the Mk7 GTI models depending on whether it has the Performance Pack or standard base brake package. The standard 272mm solid rear disc brake pads have small integrated anti-rattle springs on the tabs of each brake pad. The 310mm vented Performance Pack rear brake pads have a similar-looking pad shape and tabs, but you’ll notice they have a separate anti-rattle clip inserted into the caliper carrier before the pads are installed, and there is no integrated spring. Although the Mk7 GTI Performance Pack and the Golf R share identical front brake pads, front 340mm discs, and rear 310mm discs, they do not share the same rear brake pad. The friction surface is about the same, but the Golf R uses the electronic rear parking brake, and the pads have noticeably larger guide tabs with hooks.

All Mk7 GTI models use standard DOT 4 brake fluids shared with the clutch hydraulic system on manual transmission-equipped examples. Brake fluid capacity is approximately 1.2 L (1.3 qt) and should be changed three years after delivery and every two years after that point. 

All factory GTI brakes use a single-piston caliper on slider pins, with two brake pads per disc. The brake pads are held by the caliper carrier and are specific to the caliper and size of the disc being used. 

Brake life on the Mk7 GTI varies greatly depending on the driver and conditions the car sees regularly. The more stop and go and city driving, the more quickly the brakes will wear. Brakes vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor be checked every 10,000 miles, with a first replacement likely in the 20-40,000 mile range for many users. A GTI that sees a lot of time on the highway may easily see over 60,000-70,000 miles, but like any other wear item, it depends primarily on the driver. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Brake Service & Repair

04_Worn brake pads and backing plates

There are a few common things to look for on the Mk7 GTI when it comes to brake wear. Assuming the brakes are still offering strong stopping power and don’t have any obvious signs of performance loss, the first thing to look at are the pads themselves. With any of the factory GTI wheels, it should be pretty easy to get an eye on the outside brake pads on all four corners of the car. The minimum thickness on the pad material itself, not including the backing plate, should be at least 2mm. 

Keep in mind that inner brake pads will almost always wear more quickly than dc forest snowboard jacket easily visible on the outside due to seeing more heat because of less airflow. Because of this, replacing the brake pad set when the exterior pads are worn to approximately 5mm will help to ensure that you don’t wear down to the backing plate on the inside pads. Another rule of thumb is to replace your brake pads when the remaining pad material is slightly less thick than the backing plate itself. 

06_Worn brake discs with grooving

Brake discs are more difficult to judge when it comes to wear, but there are a few easy indicators to help you know when they’ve reached the end of their useful service life. First, if there is a substantial lip on the outer edge of the disc, it is an indication that the disc should be replaced. Wear limits vary depending on the original disc thickness, but 3mm of total disc wear is a generally acceptable range. Heavy grooving on the surface of the disc can indicate uneven pad wear but doesn’t necessarily mean the brakes are in need of replacement. 

New brake pads pure energy paintball website always be fitted to either new or resurfaced brake discs. Because the wear limits of the discs are so close to as-delivered thickness, for example, 25mm new / 22mm worn on the 312mm GTI front discs, replacing the discs with new every time you replace the pads is generally good practice. 

Squealing from your Mk7 GTI’s brakes, although annoying, is not necessarily an indication that they need to be replaced. Squeaking or squealing brakes on your GTI results from the brake pad vibrating at an audible frequency. This could be due to uneven wear, improper break-in, or external dirt, dust, and debris creating issues. As long as the pads have plenty of material, the discs are not obviously worn or damaged, and the car is still stopping as it should, squealing brakes may be annoying, but they are not a requirement for replacement. It’s also worth noting that more aggressive higher performance brake pads are more likely to be noisy. 

There are a few options to stop your GTI’s brakes from squealing. The first is to attempt to re-bed the brake pads. Bedding is a process of breaking in the pad and discs surfaces to each other, usually by slowly bringing the brakes up to an even temperature with several slow and gradual stops, followed by several hard stops. This should aid in distributing an even layer of pad material onto the disc surface. There are many methods for bedding in brake pads, so check with your brake pad manufacturer for their recommendations for the best results. 

07_LIQUI MOLY Brake paste_LM20240

Finally, removing the current brake pads and cleaning and re-lubing the carriers and sliders can help to free up the pads and avoid any sticking or vibration, and therefore noise. 

A common complaint with any disc-brake equipped car like the Mk7 GTI is‘ warped rotors,’ which results in uneven stopping and a physical pulsing feeling you can feel in the car and sometimes in the brake pedal. Warped discs or rotors are usually the result of uneven brake pad deposits on the disc surface, which can be caused by any number of things. First, low quality, low-carbon discs will heat and cool unevenly as they’re used, causing ‘hot spots’ on the disc surface. The brake pad material will stick to the hot spots, causing a high spot on the surface and that feeling of a warped rotor. 

08_VW Mk7 <i>Vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor</i> pad deposits on brake disc

Aside from using premium brake pads and rotors on your GTI, if you’ve been using the brakes a lot and they’re hot, don’t vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor stop and sit with your foot on the brakes if you water ski world championships 2017 help it, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor. This time spent stationery with hot brakes is the easiest way to cause uneven pad material transfer. 

Next up is brake fluid. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. Old brake fluid has a lower boiling point and more compressibility than fresh fluid. As the fluid ages, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, and especially if you use the brakes a lot and get the fluid hot, the pedal may get soft and spongy. Flushing the brake fluid out every 2 years, or less if you are exceptionally hard on the brakes in your car, will help to ensure the longest life from the hydraulic components and the best performance.  

Although it is extremely uncommon, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, leaks in the braking system can occur. On a Mk7 GTI, this is almost certainly going to be due to physical damage or some kind of servicing error, but in the event that it does occur, the Mk7 GTI does have a low brake fluid warning light and indicator. Excessively worn pads can also cause this light to come on, but if you are experiencing a ‘soft’ brake pedal that goes to the floor or a pedal you need to pump to maintain pressure, you should immediately stop the car and inspect for problems. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI OE Brake Alternatives

While Genuine Volkswagen brake parts are of high quality, they also tend to be more expensive than many quality OE alternatives. No one component is more or less important when it comes to quality and performance. The three major pieces of brake pads, brake discs, and brake fluid all play their part one way or the other, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor. Thankfully there are several good brands available for replacement brake parts for the Mk7 GTI. 

09_Textar ZImmerman Mk7 GTI Brake kit

There are several excellent brake disc manufacturers to choose from for your GTI regardless of whether it is equipped with the base model brakes or Performance Pack option. Of the many brands available, Zimmerman, ATE, Pagid, and Meyle offer some of the best replacement discs on the market. We even use off the shelf Zimmerman brake discs on the rear of our GTI TCR race cars. You can bet that if it’s good enough to stand up to the use and abuse that we put them through on the track, they’re a great choice for replacing your factory GTI discs. 

Brake pads are one area where things can be especially overwhelming when it comes to choosing replacement parts. There are so many brands and compounds; it’s easy to get overwhelmed with choices. Basically, you want to decide if you want a low-dust pad option or not and narrow your selection from there. If the dust from the factory brake pads doesn’t bother you, there are excellent semi-metallic OE-style alternatives from Pagid, Textar, TRW, and ATE. 

10_EBC Redstuff for VW GTI performance pack

For lower dust without compromising on performance, a ceramic brake pad might be the better choice. Ceramic pads tend to be very quality-dependent when it comes to achieving decent braking performance, as some low-quality variants may compromise stopping power to achieve lower dust. We’ve found that TRW, ATE, and EBC offer ceramic low-dust formulations, which can still stop your GTI like a GTI. 

11_pentosin DOT4 super brake fluid vw mk7 gti

There are vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor quality choices when it comes to choosing DOT 4 brake fluid. Pentosin Super offers excellent quality for the money, while ATE Type 200 offers a higher boiling temperature and is, therefore, better suited to sportier driving. Both meet all requirements for the Mk7 GTI and offer long life and consistent performance. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Brake Upgrades

If you’re a driving enthusiast and enjoy putting your Mk7 GTI to work on backroads or on the occasional weekend autocross or track day, there are many performance options available, from mild to wild. 

Performance brake discs generally don’t contribute to substantially better braking on their own. Slotted or cross-drilled sport discs, while certainly looking the part, offer a few potential upsides aside from more aggressive looks. We’ll look at slotted discs first and then discuss drilled options. 

12_VW Mk7 GTI Stoptech slotted disc

First and foremost, the slots burberry sport after shave lotion a stronger initial bite on brake application. This physically wears the pads more quickly but allows for more confident braking regardless of the brake temperature or pad type. It also offers a means to quickly and effectively evacuate water from the disc surface in instances of heavy rain. Lastly, slots can help to keep the pad surfaces fresh and wearing in an even fashion. 

High quality slotted brake discs are available for the Mk7 GTI from Stoptech and EBC Brakes. The Stoptech discs are directional as well. 

13_zimmerman EBC Mk7 GTI brake kit

Drilled rotors are what many think of first when it comes to performance brakes. Drilled brake disc rotors come as standard on many performance cars, and when done properly by a manufacturer, they can offer some performance benefits. First, like a slotted disc, they offer a mild increase in bite compared to a plain disc. They also aid with water evacuation, but unlike a slotted disc, they may result in less-even wear of the pads themselves.

Additionally, dog agility sports of houston extreme use, the holes can introduce cracking of the disc surface. Some light cracking of the surface can be expected with racing brake pads with any disc type, but the chance of a crack that can cause a major failure is higher with drilled discs, generally speaking. As a rule, if you use cross-drilled brake discs on track, be sure to inspect them regularly for signs of cracking. If you see a crack and either joins two holes or runs from a hole to the edge of the disc, it should be changed immediately. 

High-quality cross-drilled brake discs for the Mk7 GTI are available from Stoptech and Zimmerman. 

Both slotted and drilled discs can vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor in more mechanical noise from the brakes on application. This is usually more of a ‘whirring’ noise and is just a result of the pad material being pressed over the holes or slots as the disc rotates. 

If you want to significantly improve the performance of your Mk7 GTI’s brakes, upgrading to a better pad grove soccer academy by far the best money spent. The brake pad compound does more in determining the optimum operating temperature and overall temperature range capacity of the brake system and is the primary difference between “race” brakes and street car brakes. It’s worth noting that very few performance brake pads are low dust, but the trade-off is more than worth it if you’re 33 club football pool for the best. 

For street performance and an occasional autocross, there are several good pads out there for the Mk7 GTI that are cost-effective and work well for casual performance use. Hawk HPS, Stoptech Sport, and EBC Green pads are both lower dust, street performance pads, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor are long-wearing and offer a reasonable improvement over factory pads. EBC Yellow are higher dust but offer substantially more stopping power for street and autocross use. 

EBC Yellow can be used as a good entry-level track-day pad but are very sensitive to being pushed beyond their maximum temperature range. They will wear very quickly when this happens, so if you’re on your way to being a full-blown track rat, stepping into a more capable pad is highly recommended.

 

Mk7 VW GTI Track Ready Braking Parts 

14_Ferodo DS2500_Mk7 GTI PP Golf R front brake pads

 

Mk7 VW Golf GTI Brake Pads

There are very few pads that can be safely used on the street while also being capable of solid performance on track. The Ferodo DS2500 is probably the best dual-purpose brake pad available for the Mk7 GTI. They have good stopping power when cold, they are not excessively dusty or noisy, and can hold up to repeated heavy track use when paired with a proper racing brake fluid. We use these on our own project Mk7 GTI and have been blown away by the performance and the longevity of these pads. 

Dedicated racing pads from Hawk, such as the DTC series, Pagid, or boutique racing brake pad brands Race Technologies, G-Lock, or Carbotech, can offer higher overall performance but at a cost. The pads are more expensive, fitment can be limited, they are very dusty and noisy, and they will wear brake rotors excessively when used on the street, below their operating range. For this reason, we don’t recommend these for mixed-use vehicles or for use on the street. 

 

Mk7 VW Golf GTI Brake Fluid

A proper performance brake fluid is an inexpensive way to raise the overall temperature capacity and performance of your Mk7 GTI’s brakes. Even if you don’t track your GTI, a higher temp brake fluid can make a difference when it comes to driving performance. ATE Type 200 is a DOT-legal formulation of their old Super Blue Racing fluid and is a good bang for the buck if you plan on street use only.

15_castrol SRF brake fluid for Mk7 GTI

More modern formulations offer a big increase in temperature capacity and performance. LIQUI MOLY has a superb racing brake fluid available in small 250ml bottles, which saves you from throwing away new but unused fluid. Motul RBF600 and RBF660 are the industry standard for most HDPE and club racing drivers and offer the highest performance for the price. Castrol SRF is the best of the best, literally the same brake fluid they use in professional racing series around the world, but it is quite expensive. 

 

Mk7 VW Golf GTI Brake Lines

16_Stoptech brake line kit for Mk7 GTI

The final piece of the puzzle for upgrading the brakes of their Mk7 GTI is swapping the factory plain rubber brake lines for a set of braided stainless steel brake lines. The factory brake lines are stout and do a fine job but will expand vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor under bethel college softball use. Vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor reality is this is pretty minimal, but it does add to the spongy feeling of factory brakes, and the reinforced braided stainless steel lines offer a stronger and more firm pedal feel. High-quality lines, such as those from Stoptech, are DOT approved and safe for both on and off-track use. 

 

Mk7 VW GTI Big Brake Kits

17_VW mk7 GTI TCR APR Racing BBK front brakes

A ‘big brake’ kit is another popular modification on the Mk7 GTI and usually means that the kit is put together with an aftermarket multi-piston caliper rather than simply being bigger than the factory. A multi-piston caliper can offer improved cooling and more even pad pressure over the factory GTI brakes, and of course, they look great behind a nice set of wheels. Some kits also offer easier brake pad changes, making the swap from street to track pads a much easier process. Some modern BBK kits have gone to monoblock calipers in search of the stiffest design, which makes swapping a pad more or less the same process as the factory brakes. 

The pads supplied with 99% of the ‘big brake’ kits on the market are more in the range of a street performance pad, so merely upgrading to one of these kits is not enough to get the best performance. As mentioned above, better brake pads are the key to the best braking performance for your Mk7 GTI. Stoptech and Brembo make some of the best complete aftermarket BBK kits, with a huge range of brake pads and service parts available. There are plenty of boutique brands as well, but it’s worth looking at the availability of spare brake pads, caliper rebuild kits, and replacement brake discs before making your decision. 

The factory Performance Pack brakes on the Mk7 GTI are very tough to beat, so if your GTI is equipped with these, upgrading pads, discs, and fluids is more than enough for most owners. If your GTI is equipped with the base 312mm/272mm brakes, upgrading to a set of Performance Pack brakes is a nice OEM+ option. They are quiet, service-free, and with the brake pads and fluid are more than capable of even heavy on-track use.

18_MK7 GTI Clubsport TT RS Dual cast brake disc rotor

The European-only GTI Clubsport features trick lightweight cross-drilled dual-cast 340mm discs, which are similar to those used on the TT RS and 991 Porsche GT3 models. By using aluminum for the bell and spokes, and the heavier and more durable cast iron for the friction surface, a dual-cast disc removes unsprung weight and offers the performance benefit of a floating disc without the cost. These can be used on any Performance Pack GTI or Golf R with the factory 340mm front brakes pilates teacher training galway weigh up to 20% less than an equivalent size standard cast disc. 

19_Audi TT RS brakes Mk5 Mk6 Mk7 GTI

Thanks to the modular design put into use on the Volkswagen and Audi lines in the mid-2000s, there are some vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor options able to be borrowed from other models for the Mk7 GTI and Golf R. The first kit is the Brembo 4-piston 370mm braking system from the 8J TT RS, which although popular is harder to source these days thanks to the age and relative rarity of the TT RS model.

The current most popular option, which is a lot more economical and easier to fit behind smaller wheels, is to use the 4-piston Brembo calipers from the Porsche Vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor or Audi TTS and match them to the 345mm R32 front brake discs. Both the 8J TT RS and Macan / TTS kits use the popular “1001” pad plate used by many other performance models such as the Subaru STI, Lancer EVO, and multiple GM products, including the Corvette. It is worth noting that these kits play well island style adventures surf school kaanapali the brake master cylinder size on the Mk7 GTI, and pedal feel, travel, and effort remain in the correct range.

Be wary of the popular DIY big brake kits, such as those using Brembo 17z and 18z 6-piston calipers from the Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, and VW Touareg. While these are physically able to be bolted onto the spindles of the Mk7, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, they have a larger piston surface area and will result in mismatched bias, a longer pedal, and less real braking performance. They look awesome, but they’re not the best performing choice for the GTI. 

 

Special Tools Needed For Mk7 VW GTI Brake Replacement

Replacing the brakes on your Mk7 GTI is one of the easiest jobs to DIY in the comfort of your own driveway, garage, or even in the street in front of your apartment. Spending a few hours doing this job yourself with one of our Zimmerman/Textar brake kits could easily save you as much as $600 compared to a normal dealership service. That said, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, there are a few tools you’ll need in order to complete the job safely.

Euro+ Brake Pads from Bendix, Install on VW MK5 Golf GTI

At Bendix, we’ve recently released our all new Euro+ Brake Pad Kits specially designed for all leading European vehicles.

We figured it would be great to get some feedback from leading workshop Heasman Steering and one lucky participant to be a part of our Test Pilot program once again. This time we’ve got a VW MK5 Golf GTi to test out our new Euro+ brake pads.

Euro+ brake vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor from Bendix is the complete brake pad kit including all clips, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, pads, shims, sensors and more, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, where contained in OE equivalents so you can be assured that all components are the exact fit every time.

The Euro+ brake pads are your OE replacements meeting the exact standards of premium manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi and Volkswagen to name a few. We have a feeling our friends at Heasman Steering are going to enjoy this new product with the amount of European passenger, luxury and sport cars we see inside their workshop on a regular basis.

This complete European brake pad kit meets the ECE Regulation 90, which means you are fitting quality brake pads specifically designed for European vehicles and engineered for optimum performance, braking synergy and driving comfort.

We already shampoo bowl neck rest the Golf on the lift so we began cracking away on the brake pad install. Before you start, remove the brake fluid cap and ensure there is space for the fluid to rise without overflowing! The install process is fairly straight forward. Nothing out of the ordinary from your normal brake pad install. Depending on your vehicle you might need to unclip bon temps football hoodie brake pad level sensor.

On this particular Golf you will need to remove the outer caliper clip holding the top section before you proceed with the removal of the existing pads, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor. From here you can remove the rubber caps covering the caliper bolts and then remove. Using a suitable lever, push the caliper away from the pads. Remove and support caliper.

Pictured above is the existing installed brake pad alongside our new Euro+ pad. Check out the pad thickness difference! Here you can just catch a glimpse of the high friction Blue Titanium Stripe on the brake pad surface. This technology has been introduced by Bendix and designed to rapidly mate the rotor when the brakes are first applied. This way full braking performance is achieved instantly, eliminating the need for you to bed in the brakes. You’ll feel the difference, and the pads will be bedded-in in just a few stops on your first test drive.

The Euro+ has been designed for quiet and smooth braking performance. It also has reduced dust for cleaner braking and keeping your wheels cleaner!

Before we installed the new Euro+ pads we did clean of the area we are working on with some Bendix Brake Part Cleaner/Degreaser.

TIP: The MK5 Golf GTi has the brake wear sensor clip on the front left brake assembly. The pad with the clip goes directly to the caliper and the other to the front of the disc.

Before we place the caliper back into place we apply some Bendix Ceramic High Performance Synthetic Lubricant to the caliper contact areas. But making sure we keep the lubricant off friction material and rotors.

All done!

“The new Euro+ brake pads are a great product and being a complete kit you have everything you need to complete a brake pad install. This is great for us as a workshop we’ll definitely be doing a few pad installs throughout the year which will save us time. Before the install this morning I took the Golf for a spin around the block of our workshop and to be honest I didn’t think it needed its brake pads to be replaced. But as soon as I drove the car with the new Euro+ pads I could feel the difference instantly. The initial bite was great but also a much smoother pedal feel. There was also minimal to no noise. Bendix have told us the braking capacity has also been vastly improved over the OE pads and their tests have shown rims stay cleaner with Euro+. I’m keen to see these perform over the next few months but if you check back in a few months I’ll be happy to share my thoughts with you.” – Chris (Heasman Steering Mechanic)

We now have more than 130 part numbers covering almost 1,300 individual vehicles. Find out if the Euro+ is available for your car: http://www.bendix.com.au/content/bendix-brakes-catalogue-download-europlus

What Does range rover sport gta 4 Brake Pad Wear Indicator Warning Light Mean?

The brake pad wear indicator warning light comes on when the brake pads are detected to be too thin.

by Spencer Cates on September 08, 2016

The brake wear indicator light is a fairly new addition to today’s automobiles. Mainly found on higher end cars, this indicator light will let you know when it’s time to get your brakes checked out. The light will come on before the brakes are completely worn out to give you enough time to replace them before any damage occurs. Refer to your owner’s manual to see how many miles you should still have on the brake pads after the light comes on.

What the brake pad wear indicator warning light means

Quite simply, when this light is on, the sensor in the brakes has determined that the brake pads are too thin. There are 2 main ways that auto manufacturers achieve this diagnosis. The first is by using a small sensor embedded into the brake pad material itself. As the pad wears out, the sensor will eventually come into contact with the rotor which completes a circuit and turns this indicator light on, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor. The second method is a position sensor that measures how much the pads have to move before the brakes are applied.

What to do when the brake pad wear indicator warning light is on

If the light comes on, you should bring the vehicle to a certified technician to have the cricket clicker app replaced. More than likely, the light will shut off with the new pads installed. However, any issues with the sensors themselves will cause the light to turn on.

Is it safe to drive with the brake pad wear indicator warning light on?

It is safe to drive with this light on for a short amount of time. As mentioned earlier, the light will come on when you still have some brake pad material left, but if you wait too long and continue driving, you will run out of material and damage the rotors. Without any pad material, the brakes won’t stop the car as quickly so waiting too long is dangerous and increases the risks of getting into a collision.

As always, our certified technicians are available to help identify any issues you may be experiencing with your brakes or wear indicators.

  • Parts Required: New calipers
  • Performance Gain: Car stops better
  • Complementary Modification: Replace Rotor or disk

Like many modern manufacturers Volkswagen shares components and even platforms across its many model lines.

This article is based on one of those shared components but the work may have been performed on a different model than your vehicle. While some fasteners and other hardware types and sizes may be different, all of the information you need to safely complete the project is included in this article. If you have any questions, comments or feedback please contact us using the comment section below or join us on one of the world's best automotive forums for additional assistance.

Replacing your brake pads is a very easy job to perform on your Volkswagen GTI MkV and a great way to get started on 'Doing it yourself'. In general, you should inspect your brake pads and rotors about every 25,000 miles, and replace them if the material lining of the pad is worn down enough to trigger the pad replacement sensor or there is less than a quarter inch of material on the pad. In reality, most people don't inspect their pads very often, and usually wait until they see the little brake-warning lamp appear on the dashboard.' It's a wise idea to replace the pads, and inspect your discs as soon as you see that warning lamp go on.

If you ignore the warning lamp, you may indeed get to the point of metal on metal contact, where the metal backing of the pads are contacting the brake discs.' Using the brakes during this condition will not only give you inadequate braking, but will also begin to wear grooves in your brake discs.' Once the discs are grooved, they are damaged, and there is often no way to repair them.' Resurfacing will sometimes work, but often the groove cut will be deeper than is allowed by OEM specifications.' If your pads are grabbing or pulsing when you come to a stop, vw golf mk5 brake pad wear sensor, there is a very good chance your rotors are warped and in need of replacement as well.

First thing you need to do is get the car up on jack stands and the front wheels removed. Please refer to our article on jacking up your car for more information. Be sure to wear safety goggles anytime you work under your vehicle.
