A basic prerequisite for every repair is that all components are cleaned, followed by lubrication of all necessary spots in the area of the guide shafts for the brake pads and/or at the mounting points of the brake shoes using a non-conductive, high-temperature-resistant, solid-free (non-metallic) paste from our product range that is suitable for ABS vehicles.
Do not use copper paste!
All components which were not assessed as OK must be strictly exchanged according to the guidelines of the vehicle, system, and brake manufacturers. Observance of the notes helps to avoid technical problems and complaints.
Follow the instruction leaflets!
Observe the instruction leaflet in the HELLA PAGID BRAKE SYSTEMS disk brake pad packages. Here you can find notes on special installation instructions, such as
- Directional disk brake pads
- Color marking of the backing plate and its meaning
- Warnings regarding work on the electro-hydraulic brake system
- Disk brake pads with removable foil on the rear plate for adhesive fixing, etc.
Take care when working on vehicles with an electro-hydraulic brake!
When working on vehicles with an electro-hydraulic brake (e.g. SBC Sensotronic Brake Control), never change the pads and the brake fluid at the same time! Work on the electronic brake system may be performed by trained personnel only.
Follow the instructions from the vehicle and brake system manufacturers!
Always follow the instructions from the vehicle and brake system manufacturers regarding repair and maintenance work.
