Land Rover owners need routine brake system service, but where can they get certified Land Rover brake service completed by certified technicians with genuine OEM parts? We recommend choosing our certified Land Rover service department, where we understand your braking system and its maintenance upside-down and inside-out. Customers that wish to pay less for certified brake service quality and get more value should review the regularly updated specials when scheduling appointments at Land Rover Easton.
The braking system’s job is to create resistance and stop forward vehicle movement. Most braking components depreciate upon use, except brake fluid that loses integrity from absorbing moisture. Braking is ultimately necessary for safety and investment protection, so be sure to get routine inspections and maintenance as needed.
A certified technician evaluates the essential components, including the fluid, pads, rotors, calipers, hoses, master cylinder, and calipers. We recommend getting the brakes inspected alongside other routine maintenance such as oil changes. Drivers should also schedule a brake system inspection if the vehicle takes longer to stop, has a dashboard warning light, or you hear a metallic screeching noise near the wheels.
Brake pads are expected to wear down and need replacement service when measuring 3 to 4mm. Brake pads often depreciate at variable rates, with front brake pads wearing out faster, so we can replace all, front, or rear brake pads as needed.
Brake fluid is preferred because it has excellent hydraulic properties with efficient and reliable energy transfer. Brake fluid does not lose integrity due to use but has a hygroscopic tendency to absorb moisture that threatens efficient and long-lasting hydraulic performance. Land Rover generally recommends brake fluid exchanges every 3 years.
Brake rotors fasten to the wheels and have a flat disc where the brake pads create friction. The flat disc depreciates due to extreme pressure, friction, and heat that causes cracking and grooving. Minor wear and tear can be removed with resurfacing service. Rotor discs with deeper grooving or any bending will need replacement service.
