What are the signs and symptoms of bad Volvo brake rotors or pads?

Just like there are accepted brake issues, there are very evident signs that can indicate the cause of a brake problem. Warning signs include a shaky steering wheel, trouble stopping or a loud metal scraping sound are all indicators that you need to check your Volvo brakes. However, there are many contrasting, and less satisfying, indicators that your Volvo brakes may be showing which you don’t want to ignore.

When do I need to get my brakes inspected? Schedule your appointment with Park Place if you experience each of the following:

  • The brake pedal presses farther to the floor than usual or seems light or loose, and even requires more force/pressure than usual
  • Your automobile doesn't stay straight when you brake, pulling in either direction
  • Your Check Engine or Brake Warning Light on your dashboard comes on
  • Your car is wobbling or rocking when driving at higher speeds
  • It takes your automobile longer distances to stop than normal
  • You are over the number of miles that Volvo recommends between brake fluid exchanges for your vehicle
  • It’s been over a year or 12,000 miles. Brake inspections should be at least once a year. (Park Place offers a complimentary multi-point inspection every visit)
  • You have grinding, squeaking or squealing brakes
  • Unusual vibrations, shaking or noises occur during braking

Volvo Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake components frequently 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 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.

Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

Yes, your Volvo rotors will mostly last longer than your brake pads as long as you replace your pads before doing damage to your calipers or rotors. By not replacing your brake Volvo pads in a timely manner you can damage the added parts.

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • 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 extremely crucial to keep Volvo brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Volvo maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • 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 Park Place find the best type of brake rotors for your Volvo
  • 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.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at all times.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Volvo braking system together so it can function perfectly.
  • 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 frequently for cracks and added symptoms of deterioration. Check your Volvo maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Volvo rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • 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.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that constists of rubber, fiber, carbon & substitute 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 reward 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. Commonly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

How much do new brake pads cost?

Volvo brake pads can cost anywhere between $150 per axle and $450 per axle depending on the type of brake pad desired. In some rare cases, they can be even more if the manufacturer requires a discernible type of brake pad to be ordered for your Volvo. Contact Park Place today at 4692147058 or schedule your brake service online.

How much does a Volvo Brake Flush cost?

Proper vehicle inspections and basic maintenance like a brake flush can stop you from having to offer with costly repairs in the future. Transport 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.

How often do brake rotors need to be replaced?

Volvo rotors should be replaced by 70,000 miles but may wear out faster depending on your driving habits and a host of extra elements. Typically you will need to replace rotors in pairs starting with the front axle of your Volvo as they tend to wear out quicker. Schedule an appointment online with Park Place to get a free multipoint inspection on your entire brake system.
