You are watching: Minimum brake pad thickness to pass pa inspection

Take it to the shop as is and it will pass. Do you think they actually getout the micrometer and measure them? Inspections are a hassle for mostshops and most are lucky if they break even with the price they"re forced todo it at.
No, we usually don"t get the mic out for brake linings. (most of usdon"t use mic"s for brake linings anyway) We do get the mic out fordrums/rotors. Inspections are not a hassle. Here in PA., we areallowed to charge up to our hourly rate, and your allowed 2 in anhour. Stickers cost the shops a $1.00 ea. You can charge whatever youwant, up to your hourly rate. Most shops don"t charge the hourly ratebecause most of the time it is to much. Inspections are verycompetitive here. Emissions tests are part of the inspection and areextra. Inspections are good for keeping junk of the road, and keepshops busy. But of course there are the "abusers" of inspections.
