Jetty front brake pads, the film thickness is 14mm, and the replacement is 7mm maximum thickness, which includes more than 3mm thicknesses and friction linings iron nearly 4mm of material thickness. Some vehicles with brake pads alarm function, once the wear limit is reached, the instrument will alarm replacement brake pads. Reached the limits of the use of the brake pads must be replaced, even if still can use for some time, will reduce the braking effect, affecting traffic safety.
