When Your Land Rover's Brakes Need Repairs, We Will Be There in Knoxville

While every vehicle part is essential in some way, the brakes on your Land Rover are among the most important components as they provide the necessary equipment to bring the vehicle to a stop when needed,. Driving around without an up-to-date braking system is both illegal and hazardous, so it is imperative that the brakes on your Land Rover are in top condition so that they may continue to bring you safety and responsive stopping power. Fortunately, you do not have to be as mechanically inclined to repair the brakes on your SUV, in fact, this component may be a lot more intricate than you think, so if you think your brakes need repairs or replacement, schedule a service appointment and come see us here at Land Rover Knoxville in Knoxville, TN. We are located on Parkside Dr in Knoxville, just 10 minutes outside of Farragut.

How Don Your Brakes Work?

You might think of brakes as run by a simple stopping mechanism located behind your hubcaps, but the brakes on your Land Rover near Maryville are actually made up of three main components:

  • Brake Rotors
  • Brake Pads
  • Brake Calipers

The whole system is controlled through a master cylinder located with the engine underneath the hood, which operates ion brake fluid, like your engine runs on gasoline. During regular maintenance appointments, our service team will check your brake fluid to ensure that it is up to the right level as a lack of brake fluid can compromise the efficacy of the brakes themselves. The fluid branches off into four brake lines which run to all of your tires as you drive through Oak Ridge, powering the brake rotors and calipers. When you press down on the brake pedal, the system runs fluid to the rotors, which in turn tell the calipers when to apply pressure to the brake pads, bringing the SUV to a sudden or gradual stop, depending on the amount of pressure given by the driver. If any of the brake lines running to the wheels are disconnected, said wheel or wheels will not brake properly, which is unsafe.

Every 50,000 miles or so, your brake pads should be replaced as these are the components which wear down the most due to the pressure from the calipers. However, when we inspect your brakes at Land Rover Knoxville near Seymour, TN, our technicians will also check your brake lines, rotors, and calipers to ensure they are functioning properly as well. In the meantime, be aware of these signs which may point ton your breaks wearing thin:

  • Dashboard brake light (ABS) activated
  • Spongy or soft brake pedal
  • Wobbling, vibrating, or grinding noises when braking
  • Leaking fluid
  • Bouncing of the SUV when stopped short
  • Burning smell while driving
