All car enthusiasts know that cars are made of several different systems like the engine, clutch and transmission, wheels, exhaust system, radiator and cooling systems and the brake system. The brake system with its stopping power is one of the most critical parts in the car.
The brake system consists of components like calipers, steel brake lines, brake pads, high mount brake light, brake bleeding kits, slotted rotors, parking brake cables, metallic compounds, brake fluids, brake dust shields, repair kits, shock absorbers and brake booster check valves etc.
Most people are aware that pressing on the brake pedal can stop a moving car. How does the brake pedal of a car exert pressure or stopping power on the brakes of a car? The pressure exerted on the brake pedal of a car transmits force to its brakes through a fluid and this is more popularly known as the hydraulic system.
Most cars use a hydraulic system and have brakes on all four wheels. Brakes are of two types: disc type or drum type. Disc brakes are more efficient and used for front wheels which are more crucial in stopping a car, while drum brakes are used for rear wheels.
Generally all cars are fitted with twin hydraulic circuits, with two master cylinders. The rear brakes are deliberately made less powerful than the front.
There are two types of brakes: disc brakes and drum brakes. The basic type of disc brake comes with a single pair of pistons. It has a disc that turns with the wheel and is straddled by a caliper, in which there are small hydraulic pistons worked by pressure from the master Itcylinder. A drum brake has a hollow drum that turns with the wheel. Its open back is covered by a stationary backplate on which there are two curved shoes carrying friction linings.
In addition to the hydraulic braking system, All cars have a mechanical handbrake acting on two wheels - usually the rear ones in addition to the hydraulic braking system. Handbrakes are operated by a cable inside the car. The handbrake consists of a lever and arm in the brake drum and acts on the shoes by means of a mechanical system.
Hence whatever make or model of car you drive, it is very important to check the brake system and its components: calipers, brake pads, brake bleeding kit and slotted rotors and ensure that you have a safe and smooth drive.
