Is there an easy way to check how much of the brake pad is remaining without taking the wheel off?

Basically, I'm lazy and it's pretty darn cold outside.... :)

No. You have to pull the wheel to know for sure.

you could get a sawzall and cut a 1/4 of the wheel out and turn it to inspect the meat on the pads...:)

Yup.

When you hit the brakes and you don't slow down..... you're either on ice, or you may want to replace your pads.

Do you hear any weird sounds? If not it's all good.
