Infiniti G35 Brake Disc and Pad Kit
Tips to Keep Your Infiniti G35 Brake Disc and Pad Kit in Optimum Working Condition
The Infiniti G35 brake disc and pad kit is responsible for helping your vehicle stop safely upon stepping on the brake pedal. Thus, you must always keep your brake disc and pads well-maintained at all times to prevent them from wearing out prematurely. Here are some tips that can help you with that:
- Maintain your brake fluid to keep the proper functioning of your brake disc and pad kit.
You should keep your brake fluid free from contaminants and in good condition; its level should always be adequate for your braking system. An infected or an insufficient brake fluid can affect the performance of your brake disc and pads. Keep in mind that when you step on your brake pedal, the fluid is triggered and passed onto the brake caliper. This, in turn, allows your brake disc to be squeezed or pressed against your brake pads. Thus, if the brake fluid is contaminated or lacks in sufficient level, then the two braking components will not be able to function properly. You can change your brake fluid in the master cylinder for this matter through bleeding and flushing it.
- Let your brakes cool down to avoid fading.
The amount of heat generated by the contact between your brake disc and pads should be monitored because a huge amount of heat can be produced whenever you step on your brakes. This can cause brake fade, the condition where your brake disc and pad kit tend to reduce their friction for your vehicle to have a safe stop. When this happen, you must pull over to one side of the road, and let your braking system cool down before driving again. Your brake disc is equipped with internal vents that cool down the generated heat, so they need ample time to do the task at hand. Moreover, do not soak your brakes suddenly in cool water even if they are heated. This is because the water can make the cooling time of your brakes quicker, which can deform the metal components.
- Use a brake cleaner to keep your brake disc and pad kit protected and working smoothly.
You can use a brake cleaner at least once a month. This cleaner can remove even the small particles that accumulated on your braking components, which can help their proper functioning. The brake cleaner can also help you to have greater access to your brake disc and pads because you need to remove these parts first before you can clean them. In this manner, you can determine any damage that needs to be repaired or replaced.
