SELF-DIAGNOSIS

The brake system wears out slowly and progressively.

With the exception of accidental brake pipe damage, it is impossible for the braking system to stop working suddenly. Very often, without realising, we get used to driving with worn brakes, adapting our driving style to compensate for braking system defects.

We brake earlier or press harder on the brake pedal, correcting side movements with small corrections on the steering wheel, we get used to vibrations and whistling.

If your vehicle is not fitted with a wear indicator, pay attention to the following important warning signs:

  • Noise
  • Brake pedal vibrations when braking over a long distance
  • Increase in stopping distance
  • The vehicle pulls to the left or the right whilst braking
  • The brake pedal moves when unladen
