Volkswagen Touareg Brake Disc

Excellent Ways to Take Care of Your Volkswagen Touareg Brake Disc

Your vehicle operates properly, thanks to the components that make up the systems inside it. Among the most crucial parts of your car is the braking system. It is the mechanism that stops the car whenever you need to. Your brake disc, along with the pads, is the part of the brake system that's responsible for creating the friction that stops the wheels from spinning. To ensure that your Volkswagen Touareg brake disc is in top condition, simply follow these tips on how to maintain it:

  • Keep track of the brake disc's condition.

Make it a habit to inspect the brake disc regularly, so that you can see when dirt and grime has started to accumulate on the disc's surface. Since the brake disc often gets covered in brake dust, it has a huge tendency to get damaged over time. But there's no need to worry because you can prevent this with adequate inspection of the component. Prepare your tools and get under the vehicle to evaluate the brake disc. Look for signs or corrosion or any cracks on the disc's surface.

  • Scrub off rust with a heavy-duty wire brush.

Tackling your brake disc's rust problems should be done as early as possible. This increases your chances to save the disc, and spares you from having to spend much on repair and replacement. Fetch your drill and attach the wire brush to it. Then, use it to brush off the corrosion from the brake disc's surface. Make sure that you brush off the rust before it eats up on the disc, especially on the flanges. Having rusted brake disc flanges can cost you more repairs, and even lead to a total replacement.

  • Wash off dirt and grime with an aftermarket cleaner.

Cleaning your Volkswagen Touareg brake disc regularly makes a huge difference in the component's lifespan. Use a spray-on cleaner to dissolve the contaminants that gathered around the disc. Just ensure that you select the brake cleaner that's safe for your car. Spray the cleaner on the disc in order to get rid of rust and other unwanted contaminants. Be careful not to let the cleaner touch the nearby components of your brake system, as this might damage the parts that aren't compatible with the cleaner's chemicals.

  • Danger Signs of a Broken Volkswagen Touareg Brake Disc

    The brake disc is undeniably one of the most critical components of your vehicle. Without it, you can't possibly have full control over your car, as the brake disc allows you to halt your vehicle whenever you need to. So when your Volkswagen Touareg brake disc goes bad, it's important to have the component changed as soon as possible. To identify a damaged brake disc, you can use the following symptoms for reference:

    Brake judder brakes are applied

    Faulty discs can cause your brakes to judder, which leads to varying braking torques. When this happens, you'll feel some kind of fluctuation in the brake force or, more specifically, in the cycle of a full brake disc revolution.

    To ensure that the brake disc is causing the problem, you have to identify first if the judder is coming from either the front or the rear axle. Visually inspect the brake disc to see if it's grooved or worn out. You may also check on the brake calliper to see if it's still in good operating condition. Repair any damaged parts immediately by bringing your car to nearby specialist workshop.

    Cracks on the disc's surface

    Over time, your brake disc becomes vulnerable to thermal shock loads, resulting in cracks in the cast structure. These cracks affect your Volkswagen Touareg brake disc and reduce its braking power. Depending on the size of the cracks, the damage can even lead to material fracture.

    There's no exact crack size to indicate critical damage on the brake disc. When you see that the brake disc has visible cracks on its surface, it's best that you have it replaced. An important note to remember is that the longer the size of the cracks, the higher the likelihood for a fracture to occur. You wouldn't want this to happen, since a cracked brake disc becomes similar to a machine tool on the brake pads, leading to excessive pad wear.

    Steering wheel vibration

    It's unusual for the steering wheel to vibrate whenever you step on the brake pedal. When this happens, make sure that you inspect the brake disc and pads as soon as you can. This lessens the possibility for the damage to spread out onto other parts of the braking system.
