During its lifetime, a car needs constant repair to ensure everything is operating as it should. This is usually necessary to ensure the user’s safety while on the road and also in ensuring that the car performs as it should. However, most of the repairs are common to certain parts and especially those standing higher chances of wear and tear during use.
These coincidentally turn out to be the most used car parts. They are consequently the most replaced car parts and they include the following:
• The brake pad
Breaking pads are very vital to a car, and consequently are also used time and again. They stand a lot of tear and wear owing to the friction they endure when reducing the car’s speed. Consequently, they are the most used car parts and also the most replaced since minor defects in breaking pads may result in tragic and even deadly accidents.
The rate of wear and tear depends on several factors including the vehicle’s weight and the frequency of speed at which the car mostly moves. For most cars in the UK, replacement is usually required after about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles.
• The oil filter
Changing the car’s oil regularly after some period of usage is usually recommended to boost the car’s performance. However, it also becomes necessary to change the oil filter after some time too. This is to avoid corrupting new oil as some of the effects of used oil usually take their toll on the filter after some time.
While every car part is necessary, the tires are especially crucial and also the most used car parts. For starters, the car rests its entire weight on the tires. They are also responsible for facilitating movement, and as such are always in contact with the rough tarmac. This further puts them at risk of coming into contact with destructive and sharp objects like nails and glass.
As such, tires tend to tear and wear more frequently as compared to other car parts. They are thus replaced more often, but depending on the nature of the damage may also be easily repaired.
• Master cylinder and wheel cylinders
These parts face constant corrosion albeit unseen to the naked eye. They are one of the most used car parts when it comes to internal car processes. Consequently, they also need regular replacement to ensure the car performs as it is designed to.
Replacement should be done once leaking and/or sticking is noticed.
This largely depends on the quality of lights used. While technology has brought better and more durable headlights to the market scene, older models still face the common problems like burning out after some time. Most accidents also affect head and backlights too.
• Windshield wiper blades
During the winter, wiper blades are faced with a constant and cumbersome task of pushing snow and water away from the driver’s view. Consequently, they also tend to fail more often depending on usage and other factors like prolonged exposure to sunlight and heat.
While not much can be done to prevent the rate at which these car parts are used and consequently replaced, repair and replacement is nonetheless vital as defects in most of these parts may put the driver and other road users at risk.
