There is a lot of questions when it comes to servicing your brakes. Brake maintenance is one of the services that most customers neglect. Reason being that most vehicle owners believe in replacing brakes when they fail. Servicing can add extended life to your brakes and in return saving you expensive and preventable repairs. Servicing keeps your braking system working efficiently, it is especially important to service your brakes every 20,000km. Keeping everything smoothly operating is key to properly working brakes and prevents premature wear and failure.

This picture of a vehicles brake pads. You can see that the right-side pad in the red line showing the pad with around seventy percent pad remaining. The left side showing a pad that is completely worn out. This is mainly because servicing was avoided. The sliders usually cause uneven brake wear. The sliders are the slide points of the vehicles brake pads that are controlled by the clamping force exerted by your foot.

Slider pins must be removed, cleaned, and lubricated. High heat and moisture wear down the protective lubricants used to keep the pins sliding smoothly. The neglected sliders cause the pads to suffer uneven wear, and costly replacement. A common mistake from improper servicing is incorrect lubricant applied to the sliders. A special slider lubricant is necessary to complete a proper and functional installation

A worn caliper dust booth can cause the caliper to seize prematurely. Containments from the environment and the road can cause failure. When servicing your brakes system, a technician can confirm that all booths are in working order. Overall keeping all your brakes serviced is always good practice. It provides additional safety and gives you a piece of mind that is worth every penny.
