BMW Brake Pad Replacement – 2017 F30 320d
After following the above prescribed steps, Vijay (name changed), the owner of the 320d, finalized his appointment with Cartisan for a Brembo brake pad replacement. On the appointed date and time, the Cartisan Service Team arrived at Vijay’s home address. The team, comprised of a mechanic and Service Adviser, were equipped with all the necessary tools to carry out the service.
Once at the location, the Cartisan Service Team set to work prepping the 320d for the brake pad replacement. First, the mechanic popped open the bonnet and opened the brake fluid reservoir cap. Thereafter, he placed the hydraulic jack underneath the BMW and used it to raise the car up. The Mechanic then proceeded to remove the left front wheel to reveal the brake components.
Meanwhile, the Service Adviser inspected the car using a comprehensive checklist, designed by Cartisan. This checklist was later mailed to Mr Vijay, who could refer it to know the exact condition of the car.
Using a wrench the Mechanic unscrewed the caliper pins and removed the caliper cover from the brake rotor. Thereafter, he removed the worn brake pads and replaced them with brand new Brembo Brake Pads. The set of left front brake pads are connected to a brake wear sensor. This sensor is responsible for warning the driver when the brakes are worn to a certain limit. The Mechanic replaced this sensor too. He repeated the same process for the other front wheel as well.
Finally, after replacing the brake pads on both sides of the front axle and securing the wheels, the Mechanic lowered the F30 down to the ground. He secured the wheel lug nuts. The Cartisan Service Adviser then got behind the wheel and took the 320d for a test drive. He confirmed that the work was completed successfully.
