Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should consult your Volvo service manual for recommended maintenance intervals for all components. Keep in mind you should always have your service department perform a multipoint inspection which includes inspecting your brake system.

What will my brake service include when I visit Volvo of Greenville?

This can be a more complicated question to answer. Since there are many components to a brake system, there are different items that may be needed for your service. Some vehicles may just need new brake pads, others may need a brake fluid flush, while some may need a resurfacing of rotors and new brake lines due to leaking brake fluid. Depending on the results of the multi-point inspection, your Volvo brake service may include:

  • Brake Rotor & Brake Caliper Alignment
  • New Brake Rotors / Brake Drums Resurfaced
  • New Brake Hoses/Brake Lines
  • Brake pad Replacement
  • Brake Fluid Flush & Brake Fluid Replacement
  • Brake Caliper Replacement
  • Brake Master Cylinder Replacement

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Volvo brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Volvo of Greenville find the finest type of brake rotors for your Volvo
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Volvo brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected constantly for cracks and contrasting symptoms of deterioration. Check your Volvo maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at all times.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Volvo brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Volvo braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the elements that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and applies pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's extraordinarily basic to keep Volvo brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a little of stress every time they are used. Check your Volvo maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prohibit grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Volvo rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Volvo.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

How much does a Volvo Brake Flush cost?

Proper vehicle inspections and basic maintenance like a brake flush can prevent you from having to deal with costly repairs in the future. Bring your Volvo to our dealership to make sure your brake system is operating correctly. We can check your brake pads, fluid levels, rotors, calipers, brackets and everything in your brake system.
