Brake discs overheating: why it happens and how to fix it

Brake discs overheating: why it happens and how to fix it

 What should you avoid? 

  • Aggressive driving.
    Braking sharply involves increased friction, which results in overheating.
  • Warping due to impacts.
    If the surface of the discs is irregular, they need to be replaced.
  • Use of worn brake discs and pads.
    Check the condition of these elements regularly, and change them as soon as necessary.
  • Installation errors.
    If mounted incorrectly, the discs quickly wear out and overheat.
  • Replacing only one of the discs.
    To ensure uniform load distribution, the discs should be replaced in pairs on an axle.
  • Overloading of the brake system.
    On long downhill slopes, try to engine brake to prevent the brake discs overheating.
Remember: When you change your brake discs, you should install new brake pads too!
