Replaced parts: wipers, filters, brake pads and discs.

Brake: These components can be broken

disc brakes

Disc brakes are standard in most cars today, at least on the front axle. The brakes are subject to constant wear, which depends heavily on the driving style.

The actual brake pads (1) sit on the red carrier plates. They wear out slowly during operation and have to be replaced after reaching the wear limit (usually four millimeters). The brake disc (2) is made of steel, but it also gets thinner over time. This can be recognized by the formation of a burr on the outer edge. A minimum thickness is often stamped into the disk pot. The brake caliper (3) can jam, but it can usually be made moveable again. Leakages can occur at the brake piston (4).
