European Mechanic: 5 Car Parts That Need Routine Replacement

January 16, 2020

No doubt, European cars are some of the most resilient vehicles in the world, but

 

most owners take these cars for granted. Though these vehicles are well built, getting routine maintenance services from a skilled European mechanic can help you improve their performance and lifespan even further. 

 

Replacing malfunctioning smart parts and getting reliable services like Mercedes Benz repair on time are some of the best practices when it comes to car maintenance.  Let's take a look at some of the car parts that need frequent replacements. 

 

Mercedes Benz Repair: Frequently Replaced European Car Parts and When to Replace Them

 

1.Brake pads: These pads put pressure on car’s brake rotors to stop the spinning wheel with frictional force. Brake pads need to be changed at the right time. They are usually replaced in 3-5 years or after thirty to seventy thousand miles. Time of replacement can vary depending on several factors including the type of car you drive, driving style and maintenance routine you follow etc.

 

2.Car battery:  Battery is used to produce electrical current needed to operate certain electrical  components and to start the engine. When in good condition, batteries provide adequate current to the parts and get properly charged when the car is running.  However, batteries start to wear out in 4 to 5 years. It's better to replace them every 4-5 years. In warmer climates, you may need to replace them sooner.

 

3.Headlights and taillights: Properly functioning headlights and taillights are important for visibility and safety. Their bulbs have a lifespan of 5-7 years. However, it can vary depending on the road conditions where you drive and night driving. 

 

4.Air Filter: Air filters are used to protect your car's engine from dust, debris and other contaminants present in the air. They need to be changed every forty thousand miles or even sooner if you frequently drive on dusty roads.

 

5.Alternator: As we have mentioned above your car's batteries are charged while driving. The main component that performs this function is your car’s alternator. Besides charging the battery, alternator provides current to the electrical systems in the vehicle.  The lifespan of alternator is approximately 7 years or 100,000 miles. Make sure to test your alternator before replacing it because charging problems can also result from weak connections.
