A vehicle’s braking system is complex, recruiting the help of several different components. When there is a braking issue, the brake pads aren’t always to blame. Here are some other parts that we will check as part of our comprehensive brake inspection.
Brake Fluid Levels
How Brakes Work
Most modern vehicles have a hydraulic braking system. This means that fluid is used as a mechanism to transfer force from one part of the vehicle to another. When the driver applies pressure to the brake pedal, the force is magnified several times by mechanical leverage. The force is then further amplified by the brake booster.
A piston then moves into the master cylinder and squeezes hydraulic (brake) fluid out of the end. This fluid is forced around the entire braking system through a network of lines and hoses until the pressure reaches the wheel. At this point, friction is created between the brake pads and rotors, bringing the vehicle to a stop.
