Wear warning contact for the car brake system

2 matching parts found
refine by

Proper brake function is essential for road safety. Wear of the brake pads over the course of months and years is unavoidable, unfortunately vehicle owners often react to this wear too late. Some pads therefore have wear warning contacts that give you early information about wear. Order the wear warning contacts that match your brake system from Q-Parts24. We offer you a large selection of warning contacts from brands such as TRW, Bosch or Brembo. You can buy these high-quality spare parts online from us at low prices and have them delivered quickly to your home. See for yourself.

The function of the warning contacts in the brake system of your car

Technically, warning contacts are implemented in different ways. A common method is the use of metal wires on the brake pads, which become more and more prominent after a certain degree of wear. Contact with a mass causes a greater or lesser resistance depending on the wear, so that a very precise estimate of the wear on the brake pads is possible.

In other cases, the warning contacts are used to activate an acoustic signal. If the abrasion of the brake pads has reached a critical state, this is reported in the interior of the vehicle. The driver has hardly any possibility of permanently ignoring this warning, so that the brake pads are replaced promptly. The acoustic warning is a rarely installed system, warning contacts of this type are still primarily installed in Asian makes such as Toyota or Mitsubishi.

Warning contacts: Defects and their consequences

In principle, the failure of the warning contacts is not a problem and does not represent a direct safety risk in road traffic. As with other warning systems, the priority is to inform the driver of problems and defects in his car at an early stage. Even if there is a defect in the warning contacts, these are often not recognized immediately by the driver. The problems usually only become apparent when the brake pads and their wear are checked during an inspection.

It is worth considering for the conscientious driver whether he would like to retrofit a corresponding warning system if this was not part of his series from the start. Anyone who voluntarily takes a regular look at their brakes and replaces brake pads or brake discs at an early stage will be able to do this without warning contacts. Otherwise, the importance of the warning contacts as car parts should not be underestimated.

Normally, defective warning contacts are not replaced if the associated brake pads are still in an intact condition. Rather, when equipping your vehicle with new brakes, you should consider whether you want brake pads with warning contacts and thereby contribute to greater road safety. The installation is analogous to simple brake pads, but your car with ground connection etc. should be designed for a corresponding warning system.
