How Brakes Work

Automobile brakes

The braking system in a car is relatively simple. However, each part must be correctly working in order to ensure proper overall function. A braking system is made up of:

  • Brake discs
  • Brake calipers
  • Brake pads

These parts are all connected and fueled by a hydraulic system that connects your brake pedal to all four wheels. When you press the brake pedal, it compresses hydraulic fluid. The hydraulic system multiplies the original force used greatly, which gives the braking system enough energy to squeeze the brake disc and the brake pad together, creating friction that slows and stops your car. Even better, the hydraulic system evenly distributes the pressure between all four wheels, allowing you to stop safely and predictably.

Warning Signs of Brake Problems

Malfunctioning brakes will almost always give you some warning signs. Due to the nature of the braking system, components usually wear over time and rarely fail abruptly, without warning. This does not mean, however, you should neglect addressing issues with your brakes when they arise. If you spot any of the problems below, give us a call right away.

  • Illuminated Brake Light.
  • Unusual Noises
  • Vibrations or Wobbles
  • Fluid Leaks
  • Little Brake Pedal Resistance
  • Strange Smells
