Mitsubishi Eclipse Brake Disc

Tips to Maintain the Optimum Performance of Your Mitsubishi Eclipse Brake Disc

Your Mitsubishi Eclipse is a great road buddy, and what makes it even better is its outstanding braking system that promotes safety. A vital component of this is your Mitsubishi Eclipse brake disc. Upon its contact with the brake pads, heat and friction are generated that allow the brakes to work smoothly. However, your brake disc can wear out after some time. But before this happens, you must keep its top condition in order to maintain its best performance. Here are some tips that can help you to take care of your Mitsubishi Eclipse brake disc:

  • Remove rust with appropriate cleaners.

Surface rust can be removed from your brake disc upon its contact with the brake pads. However, there may be excessive rust left on it, which can affect other areas. So to eliminate this, you can use a brake cleaner and a wire bristle brush. The brake cleaner allows the rust to be dissolved and gone from your brake disc while giving it protection against further corrosion. On the other hand, the wire bristle brush can scrub off the flaking rust to help the surface of the brake disc to become even.

  • Wipe your brake disc with a microfiber towel to keep it dirt-free.

You must set a schedule on wiping your brake disc. This is because dirt and other particles can get stuck on it, which can reduce its frictional ability. Hence, you can use a dry microfiber towel for this matter. This towel can clean the surface of your brake disc without causing scratches or abrasions. Just remember to use it dry to prevent moisture from settling on your brake disc.

  • Inspect your brake disc to see possible signs of damage.

If you notice that the brakes have reduced performance, then your brake disc must be having problems. You must not continue using a failing brake disc to avoid compromising road safety. That is why inspection is very important. If you see that the surface of the brake disc is already uneven and has lost thickness, then it is time to have your brake disc resurfaced or even replaced.

  • Common Indicators of Problems in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Brake Disc

    Have you experienced problems whenever you apply the brakes? Then you must be alert and know the culprits behind those. Essential braking components in your Mitsubishi Eclipse include the brake disc and brake pads. If the pads begin to wear out, your brake disc will surely be affected as they are expected to work in tandem. Noises and decrease in braking performance are just some of the common indicators of problems in the Mitsubishi Eclipse brake disc. Know more about them:

    Steering wheel shakes upon braking

    This can possibly mean that you need a new brake disc. This is because once your brake disc overheats due to heavy and continuous braking, it can be prone to premature failing. As a result, the brake disc can lose its thickness, which leads to lateral runout. This is the situation in which the brake disc moves unsteadily as it deviates from its middle point. The runout then causes the steering wheel to shake or vibrate upon braking.

    Loud squeals or screeches

    If you hear a squealing or screeching noise every time you step on the brake pedal, then it is a possible indication of a brake disc that has a layer of rust on it. This is because once your vehicle becomes exposed to water, the moisture from it can cause rusting on your brake disc after some time. This will cause the noises to be produced. However, surface rust can easily be removed upon your brake disc's contact with the pads. But if the squeals or screeches continues, then it must indicate that your brake disc is beginning to wear out.

    Vehicle stops in an abrupt manner

    If you decide to apply the brakes but your vehicle fails to come to a smooth stop, then it possibly means that your brake disc is starting to fail. This is because your brake disc can lose thickness especially if it often overheats. Hence, it will not be able to make proper contact with the brake pads. As a result, your vehicle can stop abruptly because the brakes will struggle to do their stopping task properly.
