The brakes on your MINI car are essential for both performance and safety. They’re one of the many MINI parts that our team of certified mechanics will inspect during a routine MINI service appointment. A lot happens you press down on the brake pedal, which brings your MINI car to a safe and precise stop. Our mechanics are happy to explain some basics about your car’s brake system, as well as the maintenance we perform.

How Do Brakes Work?

Before explaining the types of brake maintenance that we do, it’s important to have an understanding of how your car’s brakes work. The simplest explanation is that, when you hit the brakes, that tells the brake cylinders to supply brake fluid to the calipers so that they can power the brake pads. Pressure from the brake pads is applied to the rotors, which provides the right amount of friction to bring your vehicle to a safe stop.

What Happens During a Brake Inspection?

Here at Orlando MINI, we have a team of certified MINI mechanics ready to perform a thorough brake inspection. This is something that should be completed twice per year, and to ensure top quality, we only use authentic OEM MINI parts during repair. As part of every MINI brake inspection, we check these brake parts:

  • Pads
  • Rotors
  • Calipers
  • Wheel cylinders
  • Hardware (adjusters and springs)
  • Parking brake cables
  • Wheel bearings and grease seals
