Chevrolet Equinox Front Brake Hardware
About Front Brake Hardware
Brake hardware contains a variety of small but critical components that ensure that your brake system operates properly and provides noise-free and maximum performance. These components include bleeder screws, disc brake pad clips, springs, wear sensors, caliper boots, bushings, pins, seals, drum brake fasteners, return springs, self-adjusting mechanisms, and wheel cylinder ties. New brake hardware will allow you to make the most of your investment. It will get rid of the noise, poor efficiency, and uneven wear caused by old and rusty hardware providing you smooth and efficient stopping power. A bleeder screw or valve is used for brake bleeding in a hydraulic brake system. Bleeding is performed to remove the bubbles trapped in the hydraulic brake system. Brake Pad Shims are placed between the pads and rotor. Pad shims are used to reduce noise and vibrations. Banjo Fitting allows the flow of brake fluid from the brake/flex hose into the piston through the banjo hollow bolt and its fittings. Lock Bolt is used for locking purposes between brake caliper frame and guide pin. A guide pin is used to align the caliper frame and bracket. It is also known as a sliding pin/caliper pin which allows the caliper to float or to slide when brakes are applied. Pin boot can contract and expand when brake works, and it prevents the entry of dust inside the caliper pin or guide pinhole. Bushings are used for fitting and covering the caliper pin or guide pin. Spreader springs are used to unload the brake pads from the rotor after the operation of brakes. Pad Clips/Retainer support the brake pads and pads retract back smoothly due to retainer after braking. The piston is used to push the brake pads against the rotor to retard the motion and stop the vehicle. Boot Ring/Dust boot prevents dust particles to flow in the piston. The piston ring in the caliper is also known as boot ring or dust boot and is used to fit the piston inside the caliper bore. Square Cut Piston Seal is used to prevent the flow of fluid outside the piston into brake pads.
Replacing the brake hardware is a vital part of brake operation as it keeps the brake system in a good condition and provides optimal performance. Brake hardware suppliers are always thinking about new ways to boost brake efficiency and longevity. Stainless steel components have a high chromium content for improved corrosion resistance. Brake pad clips are PTFE coated on one side to minimize friction and drag, with a rubber coating on the other side to minimize noise. Disc brake caliper pins and bushings, disc brake pad clips, and springs can tend to get rusted and damaged with time, which can cause the pads and caliper to fail. Rubber caliper pin and caliper piston boots can get broken and ripped, allowing dirt and corrosion which can affect the working of calipers and caliper pistons. These conditions can lead to uneven pad wear, tapered pad wear, brake noise, and poor braking efficiency. Installing new hardware and boots will ensure smooth sliding calipers, stable and vibration-free pad mounting, quiet, reliable, and improved braking efficiency. The brake drum encloses the drum brake assembly, and the friction and heat generated during the use of the brake can make the drum hot, damaging your brake hardware. Brake hardware gets effected due to heat generation and repetitive usage from the braking action, and this can lead to drag, excessive pedal travel, and poor brake performance. For an efficient drum brake operation, always replace hold-down, return springs, and self-adjust mechanisms whenever brake shoes are replaced.
Where does Front Brake Hardware fit?
The majority of hardware parts are attached to brake caliper assembly for the proper functioning of brakes. Bleeder screw is located at the top of the brake caliper provided with threads to fit in it and can be removed easily. Brake pad shims are thin layers of metal or rubber found between the brake pads and rotor attached to the pads. Banjo fitting consists of a hollow bolt inserted into a caliper frame through a banjo connector and soft metal washers on each side. Lock bolt is inserted into the guide pin through a hole in the caliper. The guide pin is fitted as part of the caliper assembly between the caliper bracket and caliper frame. Pin boot is like a rubber bellow which covers the guide pin or caliper pin in caliper assembly. Bushings are fitted to the end of the guide pin. It is inserted into the guide pin hole provided in the caliper bracket. Spreader spring is adjusted in holes provided in each brake pad. Pad clip or retainer is fitted in the space provided in the caliper bracket in caliper assembly. The piston is located in the caliper frame in the caliper bore.
