Volkswagen is the major auto producer in Germany, as well as the third in the world. VW has had three of their vehicles in the top 10-bestseller list and is still manufacturing these vehicle lines right now. The company ranks third in its fund allocation out of all of their competitors toward the research and development of future vehicles. They also have a huge line with high quality products, and more specifically, with their brake pad parts and components. Breaking in your Volkswagen’s brake pads, particularly when replacing your rotors, is a crucial service process that will make sure their lifespan and performance will respond without any issues. While this process is easy to do, any weather conditions can make this process a bit more difficult. The premise of bedding or breaking in your VW’s brake pads requires not coming to a total stop. This process takes place until your pads and rotors have gotten to the precise operating temperature and it can be harder to do for garages or if you live in a dense city. It is a good idea to get to an open road for this. First, test drive your Volkswagen on a highway without allowing your vehicle to come to a final stop. Accelerate your Volkswagen up to 60 mph and then brake harshly to slow down to around 10 to 15 mph. Replicate this about eight to 10 times in order to bring your rotors and pads up to the proper braking temperature. If you end up bringing your vehicle to a total stop prior to breaking in the pads, this will mark their contact on the rotor, making it uneven. If you have questions about Volkswagen’s brake pad parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are here for any support you may need.

Next, resume driving your Volkswagen at 60 mph for five minutes more after slowing it down for the allocated times. This will cool down your brakes. Then bring your VW back home and examine the rotors. A dark blue hue should be noticeable if you have effectively broken the pads in. At this point, allow your VW’s pads and rotors at least 100 miles of regular brake wear without harsh stopping or locking up the brakes. Take note that replacement rotors consist of a coating that will prevent rust. This is why it is vital to clean off the coating with brake cleaner in order to keep them from getting too hot and smoking while you are breaking them in. This will also shield the friction area of your Volkswagen’s brake pads when pressure is put on them to contact the plate of the rotors.
