Cartisan recently received a service request from a customer who owns an Audi Q3. The customer required a brake overhaul wherein the front and rear brake pads needed replacement.
A Quote was provided, the customer approved and the Cartisan service team arrived at the customers doorstep to carry out the service.
First the bonnet was popped open and the brake fluid reservoir cap was opened.
Next, the car was raised up with the help of a hydraulic jack and was propped on stands for support.
Then, each of the front wheels were removed and the brake pads were removed from the brake calipers. Brand new brake pads from Brembo were installed. The Audi Q3 comes equipped with brake pad wear sensors. These sensors warn the customer on when his brakes are worn out by means of a warning lamp on the instrument cluster.
Note : Brembo is a well known brake component manufacturer and manufacture high performance brake components for road cars and bikes as well as race cars and bikes. Brembo brake pads last much longer than regular brake pads.
The rear wheels are removed and the rear brake pads are replaced with brand new ones from Brembo as well.
The brake fluid reservoir cap is replaced and all the 4 wheels are mounted back on the car.
The car is lowered down and taken for a test drive to confirm that the work was completed successfully.
