The braking system is one of the vital components that keep you safe on the road. When a part within this system fails, you are in danger of an accident because you have less stopping power. At Jaguar Cherry Hill, we want to make sure you understand how this system works so you can be aware when something isn’t right.

Jaguar Brakes 101

When you push the brake pedal in your Jaguar vehicle, the system starts to work. Attached to the wheels are brake rotors. These spin with the wheel. There is also a brake caliper attached to the brake rotor. This part squeezes the brake rotor and causes the vehicle to stop. In between the two parts is a set of brake pads. These Jaguar brake pads act as a buffer. Its main purpose is to slowly bring the tires to a stop, but in the process, the material slowly wears down. If you don’t have the pads changed regularly, the metal rivets become exposed and you might damage the rotors.

 There’s no clear-cut time to have the brake pads changed. It depends on several circumstances, such as your driving habits and the environment you drive in. What you must do is watch for warning signs that your brakes are starting to wear. Listen for odd noises and watch for reduced braking power. Aside from having the brakes checked when there is trouble, you can also have them inspected when you come in for other routine maintenance.
