Important Maintenance Tips for Brakes
2
The brakes are one of the most important
components of all the mechanisms in the car.
3
They play a vital role in the safety as well as
handling of the car while driving on the road.
4
Proper maintenance of the brakes helps you to get
rid of spending more on the brake repairs or
replacement.
5
Maintenance Tips for Brakes
6
Here are some of the important regular brake
maintenance tips for your brakes to be always in
a proper working condition.
7
Check the brake fluid
8
Check the brake fluid and make sure that the
fluid is good and that it is at the appropriate
level.
9
Leaving contaminated brake fluid can destroy the
master cylinder, that's the reason it is advised
to change such fluid.
10
Flushing the brake fluid enhances the performance
of your brakes and also helps to keep the other
brake components lubricated.
11
Stop from a lower speed
12
Always lower the speed of the car before
applying the brakes as high-speed forces the
brakes to dissipate more energy.
13
Stopping at a lower speed helps the brakes to
produce less kinetic energy and less damage is
done due to the produced heat.
14
Running down the gears and gradually stopping
will help maintain your brakes and also control
the stopping distance.
15
Avoid excess weights
16
Get rid of the additional weights in the car as
they add extra pressure to the brakes.
17
Some common things that add a lot of weight to
the car are the aftermarket parts such as tires,
wheels, and battery.
18
Removing the unwanted items not only lightens the
car, but also improves the lifetime of the brakes.
19
Good driving
20
The most effective way of maintaining the brakes
is efficiently using them while driving on the
road.
21
Look far enough ahead on the road to notice the
traffic and control your speed in a manner to use
less of the brakes.
22
Always keep some distance from the vehicle ahead
in order to avoid hard braking.
23
Signs for new brakes
24
At one point, the brakes wear out completely and
the car comes up with the following signs
indicating the need for new brakes.
25
When the brake is applied there is a high
pitched squeal noise due to the rubbing of the
brake pads with the rotors.
26
The steering wheel starts to wiggle when you
press the brake pedal and this mostly happens due
to a deformed rotor.
27
And the most common sign is you have to push the
brake pedal farther to stop the car than you used
to.
28
Pros of regular maintenance
29
There are several benefits of regular maintenance
of the brakes such as-
30
Changing the brake pads on time saves wear on
the rotors and you have to spend less money down
the line.
31
Regular maintenance also prevents potential fatal
accidents and ultimately keeps you and your car
safe on the road.
