Black Diamond Fitting Information

 

General Brake Fitting Advice

Braking products are safety - critical components and vehicle manufacturers' guidelines should always be followed.

Before attempting to fit replacement parts, always compare the new components with those removed from the vehicle, to ensure compatibility.

It is strongly recommended that brake pads and discs are fitted in axle sets. Replacing components on one wheel only can be extremely dangerous.

Do not fit new brake pads to excessively worn discs, as this may impair braking performance and reduce pad life.

Before fitting replacement brake parts, ensure that all other braking system components, especially brake callipers - as well as those associated with steering and suspension - are not excessively worn or damaged otherwise disc warping can occur.

To ensure maximum performance and service life, new brake pads, shoes and discs require "bedding in". This is best achieved by using the vehicle under normal driving conditions for at least 250 miles. Avoid violent braking from high speed or excessive light braking applications during this period.

Black Diamond Brake Pad Fitting Advice

IN ALL CASES IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT INSTALLATION OF BRAKE DISCS AND PADS IS UNDERTAKEN BY A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN.

When fitting brake pads, care should be taken to ensure that the pads are fitted in their correct positions using fitment kit's / pad clips where applicable.

Ensure pads do not become contaminated with oil / grease before or during fitting.

Some pads are fitted with anti-squeal shims coated with adhesive. The peel - off cover protecting the adhesive surface MUST be removed before the pads are fitted.

Black Diamond Brake Disc Fitting Advice

Before fitting discs it is vital to ensure that the vehicle hub is free of debris/dirt and rust deposits, otherwise brake judder may occur.

Disc and drum braking surfaces should be cleaned using a suitable brake cleaner before fitting (ensure that the brake cleaner manufacturer's safety instructions are followed). Please note White Spirit is NOT an acceptable cleaning product.

Brake Discs can be specific to one side of the vehicle only, so always ensure the correct disc(s) are fitted to the correct side of the vehicle

Before testing/driving the vehicle ALWAYS check the brake lines & callipers for signs brake fluid leakage, check and if necessary top up at reservoir.
