How can I extend the life of my brakes?

The way you drive will make a significant impact on the life of your brakes. Avoid having to make hard stops by maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles and coasting to a stop when possible. Pay attention to any unusual noises or vibrations when braking and get them checked out—early intervention can avoid costly repairs.

How do I know when my brakes need to be replaced?

By the time you notice the most obvious signs of brake wear, such as squealing or grinding noises when you brake, juddering or longer stopping distances, it may be too late for an easy fix. Regularly inspect your brakes, paying attention to the thickness of your brake pads and to any indicator lights on your dashboard. Also, you should make note of the recommended service intervals for your brakes and take your vehicle in for regular maintenance.

What causes my brakes to overheat?

The friction from braking results in heat. When you brake aggressively or hold down the brake for a long time (such as when going downhill with a heavy load), it can put a lot of pressure on your braking system and can even “glaze” your brake pads by wearing them down to the point that they have trouble generating enough friction to stop. You can avoid overheating your brakes by driving more cautiously, downshifting instead of pressing the brakes to slow your vehicle and by staying on top of regular maintenance of your brakes.

A simple brake servicing does not involve replacing any parts. Regular inspections will ensure that any potential issues do not escalate and may include cleaning and lubricating the components of your brake system such as the caliper slide pins and brackets.

Brake Flushing

Flushing your brakes is a necessary part of maintaining your brake system. Over time, particles can build up in your brake fluid, reducing its effectiveness. It is recommended to flush your brakes and replace the brake fluid with clean, fresh fluid on a regular basis.

If your brake pads wear down unevenly, resurfacing them can restore their effectiveness. After a certain point, though, it’s safer to replace them entirely. Our service team can help.
