Car Maintenance 101: Keeping Your Subaru Forester Brake Disc in Good Condition

The Subaru Forester excels as one of the marque's flagship SUV. It has met a good following all throughout the world because of the shared features and similarities with the Impreza. You should remember that Subaru engineering has proven itself in different areas. For a while, the brand has actively competed and won a handful of motorsports events as well. Its podium finishes is a true testament of the capabilities of the stable where the Forester comes from. But with all the horsepower and torque, it also important that you have equally capable components to counter the momentum derived from those outputs. You need them to provide you precision stopping power so you can properly control the spirited creature hiding in the sporty body. Therefore it is important that you invest on the proper maintenance of components like the Subaru Forester brake disc. This is the part that the caliper clamps on to when you need to slow down or stop. Here are some pointers so you know what to do when the brake disc asks for some tender loving care.

  • Remove the dust that accumulates on your brake disc.

Your brakes work on the principle of friction. Assisted by the caliper, the brake pads come in contact with the disc to slow down or stop the rotation of the wheels. In the process, the rubbing wears down particles from the pad and this stuff ends up dirtying the disc. Therefore, you should regularly clean its surface to eliminate the brake pad dust build-up on it.

  • Avoid having your hot brake disc come in contact with water right after a drive.

After a long drive, your crossover SUV accumulates dirt, mud, and grime. The dirty vehicle can prompt you to give it a car wash right away. But wait! You shouldn't. Let your Forester cool down well before doing so, that includes the brake disc. Wetting your disc while it is still hot can spell trouble for you. Remember that hot metal coming in contact with water that cools it down right away can lead to unwanted warping. A warped disc is not safe.

In a crossover sports utility vehicle like the Subaru Forester, you can count on that it packs a lot of performance. Consider its turbocharged engine transmitting its power to an all-wheel drive system. That is going to be one loaded vehicle to handle. But of course, the Japanese engineers wanted a well-balanced vehicle. So aside from the horizontally opposed engine lay-out working with the capable suspension, they also had to invest on good brake components to counter all that power when needed. For one assembly of brake components to work, the caliper has to clamp on the disc and induce friction via the pads. With that amount of work it needs to do, the brake assembly has one of the fastest wear and tear rates among automotive components. And aside from having a very quick rate, it is also one of the most essential areas in your vehicle. Because without brakes, you will just end up speeding and hitting something. That is going to be a very bad case, and we are pretty sure it will not end well with you and your crossover. This is why you have to pay close attention to parts like the Subaru Forester brake disc. Here are some tips if you want to learn how to diagnose problems with this particular part.

Tip #1: Take a look at the condition of your brake pads. Thinned out pads might be hurting your disc.

Let us establish that the brake pads wear out over a period of continuous use. It also heavily depends on your driving behavior. But at any rate, you should pay attention to the condition of your brake pads if you want to know what is happening with your brake disc. Since these components are the ones rubbing off when you have to stop, thinned out brake pads can damage your disc. When it starts to make high-pitched hisses, then it's definitely time to check and replace.

Tip #2: Try to feel how your steering wheel reacts when you use your brakes.

Any weird vibrations and behavior on your steering wheel when you apply your brakes can translate to an issue. It is likely possible that the caliper is stuck clamping on the disc. Go pull over and check your brakes immediately.
