What You Need for Mercedes-Benz Repairs for Brakes
If your Mercedes-Benz brakes go out, you’re gonna have a bad time. This guide is about what to look for and expect before your Mercedes-Benz repairs.
Imagine if you hadn’t gone in for Mercedes-Benz repairs on your brakes.
You might be going down a steep hill and suddenly you need to brake. You mash down on the middle peddle, and nothing.
It’s the stuff of nightmares and detective films alike. And you probably should know what to do if that ever does happen to you.
But to keep brake failure from happening to you, you should know exactly how to care for your brakes.
When Do I Need To Go In For My Brake Service?
Mercedes is known as both a luxury brand and a high-performance brand. If you bought your car because of the latter category, you’re probably going to wear through your brakes quickly.
So, don’t wait until something is wrong to get your brakes checked. Brakes are important to your safety in the vehicle.
For this reason, you should get your brakes checked twice a year, our technician can catch worn out brakes before they become a problem.
Brake pads are soft. They squeeze down on the rotors and slow you down.
Why are brake pads soft?
Well, imagine what would happen if your brakes caught the wheel instead of rubbed on the wheel. You would be trailing brake parts all down the road.
Instead, they slow down your car gradually. This wears down the pads.
This Way And That Way
Your car does not have a mind of its own. If it starts to move where you haven’t told it, something is wrong.
If this happens when you brake, like it pulls to the left or right, get your car in for a brake inspection.
What typically causes this kind of poor steering performance is a collapsed brake hose. One brake may be clamping harder than the other. This would cause your car to lurch to the side when you brake.
This typically happens when you are going downhill. You press on the brakes and the steering wheel judders under your hands.
If this happens, it means your rotors are warped. If this is happening, go in for Mercedes auto repairs.
If your name isn’t Fred Flinstone, you shouldn’t have to stand on the pedal to stop your car. This is a mushy pedal problem.
Two things could be happening if you have to stand on your brakes: worn pads or busted hydraulics.
Either way, it’s a good idea to get that car in for service.
Get Your Brake Fluid Replaced Every 2-Years at Europa Auto
BRAKE FLUID FLUSH – involves removing all the brake fluid from the system and getting all-new clean fluid inside. (Parts, like the rubber in the valves in the master cylinder, calipers and wheel cylinders deteriorate. All the nasty little bits that flake off end up in your brake fluid. Plus, the fluid itself can get old and worn out. Moisture can also get in the system. That leads to rust, which leads to more nasty bits in your brake fluid. All this adds up to a brake system with compromised effectiveness and decreased stopping power.)
