Your safety depends on brakes that work properly. Regular inspections and maintenance are essential for all brake system components,
including the brake pedal, cylinders, brake lines and fluid, calipers, rotors or drums, and disc pads or shoes.
Disc brakes consist of a Disc Brake Rotor, which is attached to the wheel, and a Caliper, which
holds the Disc Brake Pads. Hydraulic pressure from the Master Cylinder causes the Caliper Piston to clamp the Disc Brake Rotor between
the Disc Brake Pads. This creates friction between the pads and rotor, causing your car to slow down or stop.
brakes consist of a Brake Drum attached to the wheel, a Wheel Cylinder, Brake Shoes and Brake Return Springs. Hydraulic pressure from
the Master Cylinder causes the Wheel Cylinder to press the Brake Shoes against the Brake Drum. This creates friction between the shoes
and drum to slow or stop your car.
he Parking Brake uses Cables to mechanically apply the brakes (usually the
rear brake.) This is used to prevent the car from rolling when not being driven.
