How many parts make up a brake pad system?

June 19th, 2018 by

No matter what make of automobile you drive, the braking system is an important component. Without the ability to brake, your vehicle takes longer to stop. Yes, it will stop eventually without brakes, but, by the time you stop you will have demolished everything in your path that is lighter than your car.

The simplest brake pad system involves several parts. First is the brake pedal which you push to plunge a piston in your brake master cylinder. The piston compresses the brake fluid in your brake line. The fluid presses against the disk pad using calipers to apply the pressure evenly across the pad. The pad slides against the brake rotor that is attached to the wheel. The pressure of the disk pad creates friction to slow the wheel and the vehicle.
