How to Optimize the Performance of Your Jaguar Brakes
Be honest. Nobody takes it easy on a Jaguar. You drive one of the best luxury vehicles money can buy for one simple reason — to push your limits. And that means speed — and plenty of it.
That’s why your Jaguar brakes are so important. Your life — and others — depend on it, literally. Regular brake inspections are critical to ensure top performance and safety. Here’s what you need to know about Jaguar brake jobs.
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.
Make Brakes a Part of Your Regular Jaguar Scheduled Jaguar Maintenance
Above all, get your brakes done before the pads are completely worn out. This means making a brake inspection part of your regular Jaguar scheduled maintenance, an itemized calendar item like tax season or a dental cleaning. You’ll not only drive safer, but you’ll save money on brake jobs in the long run.
Other Jaguar repairs you’ll want to schedule regularly include a radiator flush, a brake flush, and an occasional inspection.
