Mazda CX-7 Rear Brake Pad
About rear brake pad
An essential part of your vehicle's brake system is the brake pads, which sits between your brake shoe and your brake drum (a part which buckles and slows down tire motion). In the absence of workable brake pads, certain car parts, such as wheels, rotors, and calipers, will start to wear out.
What is the purpose of rear brake pad?
A brake pad has the function of slowing or stopping a machine or vehicle motion (car, truck, train, motorcycle, etc). If the brakes were applied hydraulically, the caliper would then squeeze the two pads together onto the rotating disc to slow down or stop the vehicle or computer.
How rear brake pad works?
In a disc-breaking device, the wheels of the car will be connected to metal discs or rotors that rotate along with the wheels. When you step on the brake, the master cylinder brake fluid will generate hydraulic pressure on one or more brake caliper pistons which would push the pads against the rotor.
