Guidelines for maintenance

How to avoid brake stiction: Brembo advices

It is possible to avoid brake stiction by following some simple steps.

Minimum brake rotor thickness

It is important to know the wear limit of your brake rotor to avoid any damage and breakages, but how do you measure this value?

Brake caliper maintenance: why is it so important?

Noisy brakes aren’t always due to faulty brake pads and rotors. It is often enough to perform the appropriate brake caliper maintenance to remedy the issue: let’s find out how.

Tightening torques

The correct operation of the braking system directly depends on the correct tightening torque of the wheels.

Directional Brake Pads

Brembo directional brake pads were created to enhance the comfort of the braking system, so fitting them on the wrong side could reduce system performance.

Directional brake discs

Brembo Xtra rotors are not directional. The hole pattern does not have a mandatory direction of rotation as it is designed to work correctly and deliver precisely the same performance and comfort irrespective of the side of the vehicle the rotor is mounted on.

Brake disc balancing

If you see a notch about 2 mm deep on the Brembo rotor you bought, there's nothing to worry about as this is not a defect.

Noises and vibrations

Like vibrations, squeals coming from the braking system are quite often not due to any defect or poor quality of the new component.

Download the assembly sheets for the product that you want and access all of the instructions to properly assemble and disassemble it.

Indications and bedding in

The pads and brake rotors removed are an important source of information: it is always important to closely inspect the condition of the braking surfaces, the colour and the aspect in order to identify faults with operation of one or several components (calipers, pads, bearings).
