Brake lubrication

Starting at £125+VAT

Why does an EV need a brake lubrication service?

An electric vehicle (EV) requires a brake lubrication service to ensure its braking system remains efficient, responsive, and safe over time. In EVs, the braking system is not just a mechanical necessity but an integral part of the vehicle’s regenerative braking system, which helps to recharge the battery during deceleration. However, because regenerative braking reduces the reliance on traditional friction brakes, these components can be prone to corrosion and wear due to underuse, especially in wet or salty environments.

Our brake lubrication service involves the careful application of high-quality lubricants to the brake components, such as the calipers, sliders, and pins. This process prevents the parts from sticking, seizing, or corroding, which can lead to reduced braking performance or even brake failure. Proper lubrication ensures that when the friction brakes are needed, they engage smoothly and effectively, providing consistent stopping power.

Moreover, regular brake lubrication helps to reduce noise, such as squeaking or grinding sounds that often occur when brake components are dry or corroded. This service also extends the lifespan of the braking system, reducing the need for more costly repairs or replacements down the line.

In summary, a brake lubrication service is essential for maintaining the safety, efficiency, and longevity of an EV’s braking system. It ensures that the brakes remain in optimal condition, ready to provide reliable stopping power whenever required, complementing the vehicle’s regenerative braking system and enhancing the overall driving experience.

Additional Costs Notice

 While our brake lubrication service starts at £125 + VAT, there may be additional costs for extra labour and parts if components are stuck. For instance, Tesla Model 3s often have stuck pins that require drilling out and replacing. In such cases, an extra labour fee and the cost of the pin(s) will be added to your final bill.
