Honda Brake Servicing Tips | Jamaica
Brake Squeal and Wear Indicators
All four brakes have audible brake wear indicators if they have been replaced with genuine Honda brake pads. When the brake pads need replacing, you will hear a distinctive metallic "screeching" sound when you apply the brakes. If they are very low you will hear the screeching noise even when you are not applying the brakes.
Your brakes may sometimes squeal or squeak when you apply them lightly. Do not confuse this with the brake wear indicators. They make a very audible "screeching" sound.
Low Brake fluid
When you have to top up the brake fluid then it means that your brake pads are low or that there is a leak in the braking system.
Flushing the Brake Fluid
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs moisture. And when that moisture finds its way into your braking system, it can corrode the metal and seals.
Flushing the system with new fluid removes the condensation before extensive damage can occur. Many vehicle owners in Jamaica hardly if ever flush the brake system of their automobile.
When flushing the system, always use Honda Heavy Duty Brake Fluid DOT 3. If this specific fluid is not available, you should use only DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container, but only as a temporary replacement. The use of any non-Honda brake fluid can cause corrosion and may decrease the life of the braking system.
Honda Genuine Brake Pads
Stopping is the ultimate commitment.
It stands to reason that Honda Genuine Brake Rotors function best with Honda Genuine Brake Pads. Particularly since Honda brake pads are extensively tested on Honda vehicles in the most intense braking situations and extreme environments. Made from a balance of hard and soft materials, Honda Brake Pads can effectively help prevent premature disc wear and minimize noise.
