How to Optimize the Performance of Your Jaguar Brakes
Jaguars are great cars, but their braking system requires special care. First, it is critical to use the specified hydraulic fluid in the reservoir of your Jaguar brakes. Do not mix or substitute the fluid types under any circumstances. The braking systems on a Jaguar are designed for a select balance of base stock and additives.
Clean Your Braking Systems
Be sure to regularly clean your brakes as well. Dust and debris will contaminate the rotor and brake pads, which can cause a high pitch squeaking, as well as cause uneven tears and scarring to the rotor. Give the brakes a good hose down as you clean the car. That’s all it takes.
Also, do not put any lubricant on the brake pads’ surface or on the rotors. Brake cleaner can be used to remove any foreign oils. Always allow the cleansed area to air dry before driving.
Make sure the brake fluid is topped off in the braking reservoir to ensure proper performance. Check with your mechanic on which brake fluid to use, and top it off yourself whenever it gets low. If you are not sure, have a mechanic show you how to top off the fluid in the brakes of your Jaguar.
