You can choose a Brake Balance package to check the essential elements (drums, pads, discs and calipers) for your safety and if replacement of parts is necessary, you can also take advantage of the available braking packages.
The friction associated with braking leads to significant heat release.
Pad material that is softer than disc material will wear faster.
Worn pads can damage the brake disc.
Have the condition of your pads checked (approximately every 10,000 km).
Have them replaced when the thickness is reduced to 2 mm.
When braking, they are heavily stressed. Their wear can cause vibrations. Their condition depends on the maximum braking efficiency.
Have them checked each time the pads are changed, in order to check that their thickness respects the dimension established by the Manufacturer.
Less stressed than pads, they nevertheless undergo the same constraints.
Have the brake drums checked regularly (about every 20,000 km). The segments must be replaced as soon as the thickness of the linings is less than 1.5 mm.
Not only can excessively used fluid lead to a loss of braking efficiency, but a leak in the hydraulic system can also become a source of potential failure. A warning light on the dashboard indicates its level of alert.
In the event of an abnormal drop in the brake fluid level, consult your PEUGEOT expert without delay.
Recommendations for maintenance:
Have your brake fluid changed at least once every 2 years or every 40,000 km or 60,000 km following the date of first entry into service of your vehicle. This is essential.
SIGNS OF WEAR IN THE BRAKING SYSTEM
THE BRAKE PEDAL IS HARD
This may be due to a fault in the brake booster, hydraulic hoses or circuit, wheel cylinders or calipers.
THE BRAKE PEDAL IS SOFT
The pedal sinks into the void, you have to “pump” to be able to brake. Warning, this is the sign of a serious anomaly in the hydraulic system.
THE VEHICLE SPEEDS WHEN BRAKING
A wheel cylinder or caliper may be seized up, or more simply a tire is deflated. Worn shock absorbers can also have the same consequences.
THE VEHICLE VIBRATES DURING BRAKING
It's probably faulty brake discs, a loose part, or excessive play in the front or rear axle.
THE VEHICLE “GRAZES” UNDER BRAKING
If at the slightest pressure the brakes lock, this may be a sign of a problem with the discs, drums or brake linings.
RELIABILITY AND SAFETY OF PEUGEOT BRAKING COMPONENTS
PEUGEOT parts offer remarkable qualities and meet strict specifications.
In terms of safety, the Brand's requirements assure you of quality materials, optimized resistance to wear and braking efficiency.
PEUGEOT AND THE ENVIRONMENT
As a responsible manufacturer, PEUGEOT is actively involved in the treatment of polluting products. Thus, PEUGEOT has developed asbestos-free pad technology which does not affect braking performance. From vehicle design to the reprocessing of used parts, PEUGEOT is committed, with its network, to vigilant action at each stage of the vehicle's life cycleFor more information, visit the website: www.groupe-psa.com .
