Worn brakes ... are all signs that the brake part is having problems that need to be repaired and quickly replaced.

The warping check will usually be once a year with the supervision of a repairman and vehicle owner, because the repair and replacement process will depend on the dirty inside of the brake or disc surface. How severely warped.

 After replacing the brake disc, changing the seal and the oil, it is advisable to carry out the process of "discharging the air" for the brake system. Because in the brake fluid and the oil pipes there is still air (air mixed in when the brake pads wear, when the amount of brake fluid is low) makes the brakes less effective.
