Cartisan recently carried out an Audi A4 Brake Pad Replacement using Brembo brakes. The model was a 2012 A4 TDI. The car had clocked around 40,500 km on the dash.
The on-board computer of the Audi A4 warned the customer that the brake pads were due for replacement. Along with the brake pads, the brake rotors also required replacement since the surface of the rotors were scored badly.
The Cartisan Service Team carried out a preliminary inspection from which it was determined that the following parts required replacement
- Front Brake Pads
- Rear Brake Pads
- Front Brake Rotors
- Rear Brake Rotors
