WHAT ARE THE SIGN S OF WEAR IN THE BRAKING SYSTEM?

BRAKE PEDAL

  • BRAKE PEDAL IS HARD: This could be down to a failure in the brake assist system, the hoses or electrics of the hydraulic system, the wheel cylinders or the callipers
  • BRAKE PEDAL IS SOFT: The pedal falls away into the footwell and you have to pump it to be able to brake. Please be aware that this is a sign of a serious problem with the hydraulic system.

 

YOUR VEHICLE UNDER BRAKING

  • THE VEHICLE STEERS WHEN BRAKING:  A wheel cylinder or a calliper could be jammed, or the tyre may simply not be inflated enough. Worn shock absorbers can also cause the same behaviour.
  • VIBRATING BRAKING: This is probably to do with faulty brake discs, a part that's come loose or excessive play in the front or rear suspension.
  • THE VEHICLE "SPUTTERS" WHEN BRAKING: If the brakes lock with the slightest pressure, it could be a sign of a problem with the discs, the drums or the brake shoes.

RELIABILITY AND SAFETY OF DS BRAKE PARTS

DS parts offer remarkable quality and comply with strict technical specifications.

When it comes to safety, DS Automobiles guarantees the highest standards of quality when it comes to materials, resistance to wear and braking efficiency.

OUR BRAKE ADVICE

The efficiency of the braking system depends on its condition and relies on various components: brake pads, discs, drums and brake drums. For proper operation, it is imperative to :
  • Have the condition of your pads checked (approx. every 10,000 km). Have them replaced when the thickness reaches 2 mm.
  • Have them looked at every time the brake pads are replaced in order to check that their thickness is in line with manufacturer guidelines.
  • Have the brake drums checked regularly (approx. every 20,000 km). Parts should be replaced when the thickness of the brake shoes is less than 1.5 mm.
  • Have your brake fluid changed at least once every two years, or every 40,000 or 60,000 km depending on the date of registration of your vehicle. It's essential.
