How To Refresh The Brakes On A Volvo S60

Blog Feature


One of the pro tips, among the many in this video, is painting your calipers so they'll match the look of your new rotors. 

Depending on the status of your vehicle will determine if it's worthwhile for a full replacement of pads, rotors, and calipers, just a replacement for one of those things, or a combination. The key takeaway here is that you might not need to replace your calipers entirely, in which case a refresh—the process Jay outlines in this DIY—might be the best route for you. 

Jay details how painting the calipers (after thoroughly cleaning them, of course) will improve the look of the vehicle by hiding the unsavory finish calipers gain after several years of use. Jay goes on to show the full process on how to replace pads and rotors, ultimately installing everything back together with the refinished calipers. The resulting package looks (and performs) miles better than the outgoing components.
