RAPIDE BRAKE SERVICE
THE ONLY LIFETIME WARRANTY IN THE PHILIPPINES

Rapide Premium brake replacement parts are designed to meet and in many cases, exceed the performance of the equipment that originally came with your car. Vehicle-Specific Design (VSD) makes them fit better, stop faster and last longer than other replacement pads. And they’re quieter, too. But best of all, they carry a lifetime guarantee. Even if they wear out from normal wear and tear, we’ll provide you with new ones at no charge for as long as you own your car.

We rely on our brakes to keep us out of trouble. Yet most of us know relatively little about how to look after them and how to recognize that they need attention. Here are some warning signs.

WHAT IS THAT SQUEAL?
If you hear a high-pitched noise while you are driving and without applying your brakes, it is usually a sign that your brake pads are worn down and need replacing.

WHAT IS THAT GRINDING SOUND?
A metal-on-metal grinding sound usually means your brake pads are completely worn. This will damage your drums or rotors and markedly reduce braking effectiveness.

WHY IS MY VEHICLE PULLING TO ONE SIDE?
If your brake linings are worn or uneven, it can cause your car to pull to either the right or the left when you brake.

WHY DO I HAVE TO PUMP MY BRAKES?
If you have to pump your brakes to stop your car, there could be a number of reasons. There may be a leak in the brake system, air in the brake lines or you may need a brake adjustment.

WHY IS MY WARNING LIGHT ON?
If your brake system warning light on, you possibly have a hydraulic system malfunction. If your ABS light is on, the anti-lock system is not functioning.

If you notice any of these warning signs if you have any other concern about your brakes, contact your Rapide Specialist immediately.

HOW CAN I LOOK AFTER MY BRAKES?
You should check your fluid once every month. Look for the brake master cylinder behind the steering wheel. You should be able to see the fluid level through the transparent tank. Brake fluid depletes very gradually, so if you notice a sharp drop, get your brake system checked.

Brakes are a normal wear item for any car, so sooner or later they’re going to need replacement.

WE’LL HELP YOU KEEP A GOOD THING GOING
When you bring your car to us whether it needs brakes, suspension work or routine maintenance- you’ll receive a written estimate from our Store Managers before any work is done. Then our Store Managers will go over the estimate with you, item by item. We want you to have all your questions answered. And we want you to know all your options. After all, it’s your car. We’re just here to help you keep a good thing going.

NOTE: For your inquiry we need the following: Car(made, Year, model, A/T or M/T)
