Parts Of A vehicle’s Brake System

Disc Brakes

Brake Pads and Brake Rotors – These are the generator houses for all the stopping and friction force and they must be replaced when they get worn out over time.

Brake Hoses and Brake Calipers – brake hoses are need to be replaced when one brake pad is getting worn out faster than the other or when they become broken.

Drum Brakes

Brake shoes – These friction devices are fogyish and banana shaped. They press on the brake drums.

Wheel cylinders – The rear brakes of vehicles with drum brakes are activated by these wheel cylinders.

Return springs – After releasing the brake pedal, the brake shoes are pulled back to their original position by the returning springs.

Parking Brakes

Parking Brake Cables – when cables are not being used, they seize.

Hydraulic System

Master cylinder – This is a fluid pump attached to the brake pedal of vehicles. The master cylinder pumps fluid to the wheels when you push on the brake pedal.

Brake hoses and fluid – The break system’s blood and arteries.

Power booster – ever tried stepping on the brake pedal when the engine’s turned off? It is very difficult to push. When your engine is running, the power booster makes it easy to press on the brake pedal.
