How Mercedes Benz Brake Assist Systems Work

The Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist System (BAS) reduces breaking distances significantly. This electronic system helps you avoid crashes by diagnosing a possible emergency. In order to achieve that, a collection of stereo cameras and radar scans the road and detects dangerous situations. If the driver is not responding appropriately, the BAS can start the full braking process. Therefore, it is important when you are considering brake replacement to keep they system maintained accurately.

The Engineering of the Brakes

Mercedes Benz brakes are distinctive from offerings of other car makers because they are designed differently. Most vehicles depend only on a vacuum from the engine for braking power. However, the Mercedes Benz Brake Assist System uses a vacuum and pressurized brake fluid to generate the assisted braking. In addition, the brake fluid also drives the 4ETS traction control system.

The pressurized brake fluid collects in the accumulator, a storage area that feeds the hydraulic system. So, when the BAS or 4ETS tell the car to stop, the brake fluid is released. As a result, a lever triggered by the brake pedal uses the brake fluid to assist a stop.

How Mercedes Benz Brake Assist Systems Help You

Most crashes occur because drivers do not properly apply the brakes in time. As an illustration, a driver notices an emergency situation. In order to avoid it, the driver lightly applies pressure to the brake pedal and gradually increases it. More times than not, that driver’s reaction is not enough to prevent the accident. Dangerous driving situations that produce accidents require maximum pressure on the breaks immediately to avoid the crash.

To put it differently, most crashes happens because the full power of the brake system was not given the chance to work. Mercedes Benz brake assist systems make sure that does not happen. BAS releases the pressurized brake fluid as soon as the driver contacts the brake pedal. Hence, BAS speed up the stopping power right away. It actively works to stop the car until the brake pedal is released.

Mercedes-Benz Brake Rotors

In order to optimize your brake system, consider new Mercedes Benz brake discs when you replace your brake pads. Brake force is created by the brake pads and brake rotors. If your brake discs are badly scored or unevenly worn, you will notice poor performance and loud noises. In other words, brakes work by transferring kinetic energy into heat. Your disc brake rotors can get heated up to 700 degrees Celsius. For that reason, you need the quality of Mercedes Benz brake rotors to ensure even wear and tear. As a result, you will continue to get short stopping distances.

Mercedes-Benz Brake Fluid

Make sure when you replace your Mercedes Benz brake fluid on a regular basis, too. In order to keep your brake system operating well, you need to replace it every 2 years of 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, you need to visit Mercedes Benz technicians to assure it is done properly. The procedure requires approved pressure bleeding machines and “DOT4 plus” brake fluid. Of course, you may consider going to an independent shop, but that would be a bad idea. Your break system could be damaged if the break fluid is not evacuated under proper pressures. Furthermore, you do not want any moisture in the new brake fluid. Therefore, trust Mercedes Benz technicians with this work.
