BMW 435i Problems with Rear Brakes
Our client brought in their BMW 435i which had problems with the rear brakes. The brake pad sensor light was also erratic.
Our inspection highlighted both the rear brake pads and discs needed to be replaced. The brake pad sensor was damaged.
Further inspection showed a number of seals were old and leaking. These included the shaft seal, pinion oil seal and driveshaft seals. The threads on the wheel carrier were damaged and we were able to repair them.
Remember it is important to regularly have the various seals checked to ensure they are not cracked and worn. This preventative measure can save you a lot of money.
