Brake Inspections

Regular brake inspections are key to ensuring your safety and your Porsche’s overall performance. That’s why every six months when you bring your Porsche in for any maintenance like a routine oil change, we’ll thoroughly inspect your brake system to look for any signs of trouble or wear. Our comprehensive brake inspection includes:

       
  • Inspecting for even wear
  •    
  • Checking brake fluid levels
  •    
  • Measuring brake pad/shoe thickness
  •    
  • Checking for any leaks in the brake line
  •    
  • Inspecting calipers for wear, fluid leaks, and movement
  •    
  • Checking anti-lock brake sensors
  •    
  • Testing hardware and making necessary adjustments

Brake Wear Indicator

Porsches are engineered to be able to perform at the highest level, that’s why it’s important to understand possible brake degradation and issue indicators. From irregular noises to less responsive stopping, other common signs that your brake system needs to be serviced include:

       
  • Brakes feel spongy or hard to press down
  •    
  • Squealing or grinding noises
  •    
  • Your car pulls to one side
  •    
  • Your steering wheel or brake pedal shakes when applying the brake
  •    
  • Your Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) warning lights come on

Understanding Brake Components

Every brake component plays a vital role in ensuring you’re getting the stopping power you’re expecting every time you go to use your Porsche’s brakes. Learn more about each brake component, see how they meticulously are engineered to perform reliably every time you get behind the wheel.

Rotors and Pads

Rotors are steel discs and hubs that the brake pads sit on while the pads are metal backing pads. Together these components work to make your wheels stop rotating when you press on your Porsche’s brake pedal.

Calipers

Brake calipers are an essential part of your Porsche’s hydraulic brake system, sitting over the brake rotor holding the brake pads. When the brakes are applied, the hydraulic piston housed in the caliper extends and squeezes the brake pads together against the brake rotor which slows or stops your Porsche.

Master Cylinder

The master cylinder in your Porsche creates hydraulic pressure from the reservoir to the brake caliper at the wheel.

Brake Lines

Brake lines are hoses made of braided steel or rubber that are found throughout your Porsche and connect to the master cylinder and each individual brake caliper.

Wear Indicator

Brake wear indicators are purposely installed to make loud squeaking noises when your brake pads are running low due to the friction between the metal material and your brake pads.

Brake FAQs


When you wear down your brakes enough, there are small, metal hairs at the bottom, which make loud noises. When the squealing begins, your brakes are nearly out of gripping material and need to be changed.

Vibrating may suggest that your rotors are warped.
