Cleaning the brake discs

Cleaning the brake discs  - Brakes - Your driving environment - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs may result in delayed brake function. This delay is minimized by cleaning the brake linings.

Cleaning the brake pads is advisable in wet weather, prior to long-term parking, and after the vehicle has been washed. Do this by braking gently for a short period while the vehicle is moving.
