Between the hundreds of people working under the FCP Euro banner, we all strive to support you in every way we can. For the most part, that means supplying you with the latest in high-quality European auto parts, but it also includes pooling our expert knowledge into informative and educational articles and videos dedicated to helping you with your next DIY. With no shortage of Genuine, OE, OEM, and performance-aftermarket brake parts available on the site, take a long look at our brake-focused content; one or more of these articles might be just what you need.

General Brake Content:

The braking system in your car is arguably the most important in terms of safety. While you don’t need to know every specific detail about it, you need to keep it in good shape for your safety and everyone around you. As important as it is, it’s one of the simplest systems within your vehicle and is incredibly easy to maintain, even at home, with simple hand tools. If you want to learn more about how to service your brakes and why you can save so much money working on them, get familiar with the links below!

Definitive Brake Guides:

General brake knowledge is a great starting point, but calipers, rotors, and pads come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. We’re well aware of that, having built hundreds of kits for the multitude of options across each make and model we cover, and we have more than a few guides covering some of the most popular enthusiast vehicles on the market. Inside, you’ll find OE specs, potential upgrades, common wear points, and all the specifics about that vehicle. Take an in-depth look at your braking system, or check out how it’s done on a car you’re trying to emulate with these Definitive Guides!

Brake Service & Replacement DIYs:

When you’re out there with your brakes taken apart, straightforward instructions with visual references and helpful tips will make the process as painless as possible. Bolt sizing, torque specs, and assembly process all vary between makes, and these make-specific DIYs ensure you know what tools you’ll need ahead of time. While the videos often feature one particular model in the title, every manufacturer shares components across their models, so there’s a good chance your specific car may already be covered. Check out the individual links below or head into the brake DIY playlist to find a job that’ll work for you!

Brake Videos:

Reading about a job and looking at still images can be enormously helpful, but pairing them with a video only makes them that much better. Our YouTube channel is full of helpful content—even more so than the blog—meant to support the written side and stand alone as a source of information. If you’re more of a watcher than a reader, these are exactly what you need to get down to specifics or learn more about the basics. 

How To Find More Brake-related Content:

Although there’s lots of content linked here, there’s plenty more over on fcpeuro.com/blog. The best way to learn more about your car or simply find something entertaining to read is by using the revamped search feature at the top of the blog. The search bar at the top right allows you to filter by keyword so you can get specific. However, you can also search using the tags provided in the dropdown menu on the left-hand side in blue.
