Dodge Sprinter Rear Brake Pad
About rear brake pad
Brake pads are an important part of the brake system in your vehicle; they sit between your brake shoe (the part that clamps down and slows down the movement of the tyres) and your brake drum. Other elements of your car, such as the wheels, rotors, and callipers, will start wearing away in the absence of working brake pads.
What is the purpose of rear brake pad?
A brake pad has the function of slowing or halting the motion of a machine or vehicle (car, truck, train, motorcycle, etc). If the brakes were applied hydraulically, the caliper would then squeeze the two pads onto the rotating disc together to slow or stop the vehicle or computer.
How rear brake pad works?
The car's wheels are connected to metal plates, or rotors, that spin in a disc-breaking device along with the wheels. The master cylinder brake fluid, when you step on the brake, will produce hydraulic pressure in the brake caliper on one or more pistons that will force the pads against the rotor.
