Brakes: we have the answers to your questions

If your brakes squeak, there isn’t always a problem. Brakes sometimes squeak even though they’re working perfectly well. Disc brakes are more prone to squeaking than drum brakes. Often, the reason for the unpleasant noise is brake dust on the brake disc or poorly fitted brake discs. To rule out any problem, you should still have your brakes checked by your AMAG garage.

Worn-away brake pads are a significant safety risk, which is why you should have your brakes checked regularly. If you hear a grinding noise when the brake is lightly applied, this is often a sign of worn-away pads. A low level of brake fluid is another indicator – the brake piston has probably shifted closer to the brake disc due to the reduced thickness of the pad. Deep grooves on the brake discs are often caused by embedded small stones. They mean that the brake discs need to be replaced.

To ensure your safety, the brake fluid should be changed as required. At AMAG, we’re happy to take care of everything – from advice in choosing the right brake fluid and thorough flushing of the braking system to professional ventilation and environmentally friendly disposal of the old brake fluid.

With hydraulic braking systems, air bubbles in the lines can greatly impair braking performance. This means that, whenever brake fluid is changed or topped up, the braking system needs to be professionally ventilated.

It’s best to have a brake service carried out by trained specialists – ultimately, it’s about your safety. Though there are many illustrated instructions and videos on the internet about changing brake pads, brake blocks and brake discs, we advise you to have your car’s brake system checked and serviced by a professional.
