Hyundai Elantra: Braking System / Disc Brakes Wear Indicator, Rear Drum Brakes

Hyundai Elantra AD (2016-2020) Owners Manual / Driving Your Vehicle / Braking System / Disc Brakes Wear Indicator, Rear Drum Brakes

Disc Brakes Wear Indicator

When your brake pads are worn and new pads are required, you will hear a high pitched warning sound from your front or rear brakes. You may hear this sound come and go or it may occur whenever you depress the brake pedal.

Note that some driving conditions or climates may cause a brake squeal when you first apply (or lightly apply) the brakes. This is normal and does not indicate a problem with your brakes.

NOTICE

To avoid costly brake repairs, do not continue to drive with worn brake pads.

Information

Always replace brake pads as complete front or rear axle sets.
