Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are other reasons for noisy operation of the brake system?
Overtightened wheel nuts can be one of the simple reasons. As a result of the constriction the rotor may be deformed and that leads to the beating on the brake pedal. This may also be the reason for the noise! Each case is different and always requires comprehensive diagnostics.
2. How often should visual inspection of the brakes be performed?
Inspection of the brake system is required at least twice a year. It is advisable to carry out routine inspection at the time of seasonal wheel changes. And, of course, the owner should come to a service centre, if he hears noises during braking or experiences other problems.
Regular attention should be paid to the brake fluid. Reduced fluid level in the reservoir is a sign of pad and disc may indicate other problems in the system. In addition to the main function, the brake fluid protects system components from corrosion, and therefore requires periodic replacement.
Brake fluid replacement interval is specified in the car or motorcycle manual and is usually from 1 to 3 years depending on the vehicle type.
3. Can the problem of brake pads and rotors be solved with replacement?
Only after checking of the entire brake system. Putting a new part on a faulty mechanism, will not work well.
4. Can hydraulic brake fluid damage the pads?
Yes. It is vital that the hydraulic system is in good working order. All caliper seals and hoses should be checked for leakages when the pads are fitted. An easy way to check is to look for a sticky area with caked dirt, this will indicate where the leak is coming from in your system. Brake hoses and seals should last 6-8 years under normal conditions.
5. Why are my brakes binding and not lasting on my car?
Brake pads need to move up against the disc in order to generate a braking force. Once the applied pressure is released, the brake pads must move away from the disc in order to remove the braking force. If, however, the brake pads cannot move away binding will occur. One reason for the brake pads not moving away are because the brake pads are oversize and cannot move freely in the brake caliper.
