Mercedes-Benz of Chicago is Equipped to Service Your Sprinter Brakes
Your Mercedes-Benz Van was built to withstand repeated use, harsh conditions, and stop-and-go traffic. Needless to say, over time your van’s brake system takes a beating. To ensure all brake components remain in working order, it’s a smart idea to bring your vehicle to a factory-trained professional who can recognize wear-and-tear, and repair it on-site with tried-and-tested, OEM fluids and parts. Our Sprinter Authorized Service Center makes certified auto care accessible for businesses in Chicago, Oak Park, and throughout Chicagoland.
Common Brake Repairs
At some point, your Sprinter or Metris Van’s brakes will likely require brake repairs to continue performing reliably. Below, you’ll find a quick overview of some common brake services, and how to tell if/when they’re needed:
- Brake Pad Replacement: Brake pads extend the brake system’s life by preventing the calipers and rotors from grinding together. Generally, replacement is recommended every 20,000 miles, but if you notice a high-pitched screeching sound during braking, be sure to book a service appointment as soon as possible.
- Brake Line Replacement: Brake lines are responsible for transferring fluid from your master cylinder to the rest of the brake system, keeping it lubricated and functional. If your vehicle pulls to one side during braking, or if your brake pedal feels “spongy”, a leaky or worn brake line could be to blame.
- Master Cylinder Replacement: The master cylinder’s job is to regulate the brake fluid’s pressure for maximum efficiency. Master brake cylinders seldom require replacement; however, two telltale signs of a problem are leaking fluid and a sinking brake pedal.
- Brake “Bleeding”: Occasionally, brake “bleeding” is necessary to remove air bubbles from the brake lines. If the brakes feel “squishy” when applied, a technician may recommend this procedure.
