Your brakes are vital for safety on the road. However, they’re also subject to a great deal of wear and tear. Eventually, you will need to invest in Audi brake service. Fort Lauderdale residents need to understand several factors about their brakes to ensure they can make informed decisions at this time.
Your car will need different types of brake service at varying intervals in its life. We’ll break them down for you below.
The most common type of Audi brake repair is replacing the brake pads. Over time and through use, your brake pads wear down – material is removed every time you press the brake pedal as the pad is pressed against the rotor. Eventually, there is not enough material to stop safely.
There is no mileage mark when you need to replace your brake pads. It’s more closely related to your braking and driving habits. At Euromotive, we make it a point to check your brake pad thickness at every service so you always know when it’s time to replace them.
Your rotors do not require regular replacement like your pads do, but they will need some TLC throughout their lifespan. The most common issue is the need to resurface them. Over time, the surface becomes irregular through contact with your brake pads.
Resurfacing them provides a smooth surface for the pads and can reduce vibration in the brake pedal. However, after many years of use, your rotors may need to be replaced. We’ll recommend resurfacing your rotors only when necessary.
Your brakes are operated hydraulically. However, the fluid can become dark and dirty over time and through use. Periodically, it should be flushed and refilled and the entire system should be bled to remove any air trapped in the lines.
Under normal conditions, your brake calipers should last the life of the vehicle. However, there are situations where they can be damaged, or where the rubber seal around the piston may be damaged. We can inspect your calipers and recommend replacement if necessary.
Periodically, it’s good to have a full brake system inspection on your car. At Euromotive, we inspect all components of your brake system, from the master cylinder to the brake lines, calipers, and everything in between. If we notice anything out of the ordinary, we will alert you and discuss your options.
