Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

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

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.

Jaguar Brake Fluid

Where does brake fluid come into the equation? The brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is responsible for moving the components of your Jaguar brake system. Fresh brake fluid is something few people think about, even though it can dramatically affect braking performance. Brake fluid should be changed normally. Consult your Jaguar maintenance manual for information on careful mileage intervals.You can even schedule your appointment online. For any brake related questions or concerns, reach out to our Jaguar advisors at Jaguar St Louis.

How long do Jaguar brake rotors last?

This depends heavily on the type of rotors, your driving style, and the type of vehicle you're driving. Jaguar rotors need to be replaced every 30,000 - 80,000 miles depending on the factors above.

Jaguar Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake components typically wear out well after the front brakes due to the level of stress required to slow a vehicle. Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should consult your Jaguar 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.
