How brembo brakes workbench

Brembo brake discs junk?

  • Ciao Ragazzi,

    do brake discs look like this after 3000km?

    Squeaking like hell and driving is inedible and embarrassing ...

    In the meantime, they have been expanded, cleaned, etc. 4 times.

    Only creates rest for a few hundred kilometers and then the squeaking starts all over again.

    A strong grinding noise can be heard especially at the front left when driving.

    I'm about to order ATE blocks and washers because I don't want to accept that anymore.

    The braking effect is also not particularly great, to be honest, whether it's the Giulietta 1.4 MA 170PS (305mm brake) or because I'm so spoiled by the 916 ..

  • would say YES

    You can get rid of the squeaking with a corresponding amount of paste behind the toppings.

    The rust and dirt, as well as the mediocre braking effect remain ....

    The right equipment from EBC on it and everything will be fine.

    (In my case "Black Dash" with "Red Stuff")

  • So a squeaking of the brake usually comes from the contact area between the pads and the piston. There has to be (Copper-) Paste can be applied. A grinding noise WITHOUT using the brake is also normal. But only lightly. More like "singing" than rubbing. And the rusty edges are also normal, as the pads do not lie on the entire brake disc surface. The question is rather whether there is already a clearly noticeable / measurable edge.

  • Copper paste no longer uses mn, only plastic tube or the like.

  • Then like that

  • My experience with Brembo discs has been consistently positive and is a bit softer than ATE discs. Squeaking can also come from the pads themselves. Deburring / chamfering the edges of the covering helps. I always do this to avoid squeaking in the first place.

  • At GTA, the standard Brembo are no good, zero point nothing!

  • Was also more related to daily use.

  • Not even there, even at 250 in the irons and they are crooked.

    Mine were scrapped after an Eifel tour.

  • Higher price with all of the aforementioned negative features ... why should I stay with Brembo ...

    Brembo mainly focuses on the design and manufacture of the brake calipers ... the rest is m.W. for those just buying stuff.

  • And the rusty edges are also normal, as the pads do not lie on the entire brake disc surface. The question is rather whether there is already a clearly noticeable / measurable edge.

    I wonder why there was / is no rusty edge to be seen on the original panes?

  • Aha ... I don't know. Everything about mine is org. and there is also a border inside and outside. Just like on my mother's car (BMW) and my classic car.

  • Good Morning............

    the question is, is this genuine Alfa product? If so ................ he should do it.

    Basically, anything is possible when it comes to noise when braking.

    1. Cheap accessories that rust even after 2 car washes.

    2. Brake in total in all contact surfaces with brake dust "closed".

    3. No or too little anti-squeak paste. And: I still use copper paste to this day against all prophecies of doom, has never squeaked.

    4. Brake pads do not come off the disc because the piston does not move freely or the brake pad guides are dirty, rusty or the coating does not move freely enough due to the manufacturer's application of paint and it gets stuck.

    5. Materials just don't match

    What do the rear brakes look like. Blank? How old is the brake fluid? Have you ever been to the ADAC brake test?

    Bread can mold, what can you do

  • Rust has nothing to do with quality.

    I have more concerns about the braking effect if the discs on the braking surface don't rust.

    However, the rest of the surface should be coated as well as possible and should not be limp.

  • Our Giulietta with the Brembo system we bought as a new car had occasionally made grinding noises at the front right at the beginning, but everything is OK.

    I also like braking performance. The only problem with the Brembo's is that on the front right an approximately 1 x 2 cm layer of paint has peeled off. I think that's a result of the grinding noise.

  • I only had bad failures at EBC and Zimmermann.
    I've never had any problems with Brembo or ATE. The first question is whether they are original Brembos and whether there have been any changes to the vehicle.

  • Rust has something to do with the quality of the material, or how good or whether the remaining surfaces are "tempered" at all. That's what we're talking about here.

    Branded discs should not throw off the chunks at least after 2 years.

    Before using for the first time, stovepipe paint / exhaust paint can also help.

  • For me, the "rust" is primarily about the alloy of the disc, that is, what is decisive for the coefficient of friction and wear in combination with the lining.

    For me, it still applies here that there is no rust film and hardly any wear and tear, and that doesn't really slow you down either.

    Good windows also have a coating that protects the remaining surface from rust. This means that the actual alloy of the disc is independent and does not have to be trimmed to be rustproof or even rustproof.

    In these points I am very satisfied with my current EBC configuration on the 159. This is very well coordinated, brakes superbly, the wear is acceptable and nothing is bogging ..... what more could you want?

    Oh yes ... it is also cheaper than Brembo ...

    These were bought in the Alfisti Shop so they are not fake I hope ...

    Changes to the vehicle are only the rims, exhaust and Eibach springs
