Land Rover Brakes FAQ
What Do They Do?
Create friction -- more specifically, the resistance requisite to helping your vehicle slow down and come to a complete stop.
How Many and What Types are There?
Two: disc and drum systems.
How Do They Work Generally?
When the brake pedal is pressed, brake pistons pump. They travel the master brake cylinder's bore, pressurizing brake fluid. The fluid travels through a series of brake hoses and lines. From there, how each type of brake works differs only slightly. In drum brakes, brake shoes clamp to brake drums. In disc brakes, brake rotors clamp to brake calipers with brake pads attached to them.
How Long Do They Last?
That depends on the condition of each part.
What Are the Signs They Need to be Replaced?
- Warnings on the dashboard
- Pulling sideways during braking
- Shuddering brakes
- A brake pedal that feels too low or unusually soft
- Weak brake grip
- Taking longer to slow and stop
- Abnormal brake sounds, such as grinding
When Should They Be Changed Otherwise?
When brake inspection results require it. Be sure to inspect the brake pedal, fluid, lines, hoses, assemblies, and parking brake. Before ordering parts, make sure they're genuine.
