Raybestos Best in Brakes Brake Job: Inspecting Brake Assembly

In part two of this series, we talk about inspecting the brake assembly. 

Watch part two on YouTube

Inspecting Tires and Wheels:

Before you pull the wheel to inspect the brakes, always make sure you inspect the tires and wheels.

  • Inspect the tires. A badly scalloped tire or an out-of-balance tire can cause vibrations while you drive. 
  • Check for play within the wheel bearing and suspension components. Move the tire vertically up and down and horizontally side to side. If there is excessive play in the wheels, make sure to inspect the wheel bearing and suspension components separately. 

Inspect Brake Components:

  • Inspect the brake hoses and brake lines for any cracks or leaks. 
  • Inspect the surface area of the rotor and check for a rust ridge on the edge of the surface area. These rust ridges can lead to rust jacking. 
  • Check the cooling vanes of the rotor for any blockages from rust or mud. 
  • Check the thickness of the rotor using a micrometer. If the rotor is below discard thickness, you must replace that rotor. 
  • Use a special gauge to check the pad thickness. This is an easy way to see if you need to replace your pads before you take off the caliper. 

After our visual inspection of the brakes, we will start the brake job by removing the caliper.
