Brake System

 

Critical parts that wear out for your brake system

Your brakes work by friction, you press on your pedal, the pedal pushes a rod, the rod pushes a piston in your brake master cylinder, which forces fluid from the cylinder, through your brake lines. And then to your brake caliper for a disc brake, or wheel cylinder for a drum brake. In the caliper or the wheel cylinder is another piston, which as your brake fluid moves, pressing the brake pad against your brake disc or brake drum. The clamping or friction force slows down your wheel, then your car and you, when its working of coarse.    

 

  • Hydraulic fluid like your engine oil it needs replacing
  • Brake Pad for disc, Brake Shoes for drum
  • Seals for the master cylinder, brake calipers or wheel cylinder
  • Disc rotors or Brake Drums
  • Brake lines and Brake hoses
