Dodge Charger Brake Disc

A Brief List of Dodge Charger Brake Disc Maintenance Tips

Due to its essential duty in your car's braking system, your brake disc is one of the components that need your utmost attention. Since it makes the vehicle incapable of stopping whenever needed, driving with faulty brakes can bring lots of headaches. Remember that the accelerator and the brake components like the brake disc work hand-in-hand in controlling your car, so it's a must that you maintain their good shape. To do this, here are some easy-to-follow tips for your Dodge Charger brake disc:

  • Form the habit of examining your brake disc regularly.

To keep your car's components healthy, have a preventive check every few months. You don't need to bring over an expert mechanic to accomplish this, since the checkup can be done through simple steps and using only basic car repair tools. One of the things you need to prepare would be jacks and jack stands that you can use in securely lifting the car. Once the wheel is free, remove the tire and take a close look at the brake disc. See if any part of the disc has already corroded, or if there's any other damage on the disc's surface. When you see that the component has sustained any form of damage, it's highly recommended that you change it immediately to prevent further damage to the braking system.

  • Choose a safe cleaner for the disc.

You can either get a recommended cleaner from your trusted mechanic, or do your own research when it comes to the best cleaning solution for your brake disc. Just be sure that you select the spray-on cleaner that's safe to use on your vehicle, especially on its metallic parts. Use the spray-on brake cleaner to eliminate dirt and dust that has accumulated on the disc. This will not only make the brake disc look smooth again, but will also help restore your car's brake system performance. A few aftermarket cleaners even offer rust-protection, which keeps corrosion away for some time.

  • Get rid of rust as soon as you spot it.

Whenever you inspect the brake disc, make sure that you take action if you see initial signs of corrosion. Don't wait for the corrosion to eat up on the brake disc, or else you might be facing more complicated problems. To save the disc's surface, connect a wire brush to a drill and use it to clear off the rust. Doing this can extend your brake disc's lifespan and prevent frequent replacement.

  • Diagnosing a Faulty Dodge Charger Brake Disc

    Faulty brakes are among the most common causes of road accidents. It's usually linked to damaged brake linings or brake disc. To prevent this from happening, you need to ensure that your brake disc is always in top condition through proper care and maintenance. When you notice that there's something unusual with your brakes, then you probably need to check on them as soon as you can. Here are some indicators of a Dodge Charger brake disc that needs replacement:

    Your brakes squeal when you step on the pedal.

    Your brakes are designed in such a way that you can easily bring the car to a stop upon depressing the pedal. This process doesn't create any form of noise and provides you with a smooth transition. So when you start hearing squealing noises coming from the brakes, then it's time that you check on your brake disc and pads. Brake squeal usually occurs when there is little pad left on your car's brake pads. This results in a metal-to-metal contact between the brake pads and the disc. Although it's usually the disc that's making this screeching sound, it can also be due to other parts of the braking system. To confirm which part is causing the squealing sounds, visually inspect your brake disc and pads. Once worn out, make sure that you replace them fast to avoid getting into accidents.

    Applying the brakes produces vibration.

    There shouldn't be any problem when you step on the brake pedal. When you start to notice issues, such as vibrations coming from the steering wheel, then there's probably a damaged part somewhere in your braking system. When you feel such vibrations upon depressing the brake pedal, then you need to bring your car to a professional to have it repaired or replaced. Keep in mind that a properly working brake disc should not produce any vibration. So when you encounter something like this, have your brakes checked as soon as you can.

    The brakes are not as powerful as before.

    Your car's brake disc is vulnerable to cracks and other types of damage. It's usually a result of too much thermal shock loads pressed against its surface. Upon inspection, look for signs of cracks—be it hairline or huge ones—on the disc's surface, and have it fixed immediately. Repairing these cracks can only be done by professionals, so it's highly recommended that you have the disc remachined in your trusted car repair shop, or have it replaced entirely.
