How Brakes Work
There’s a lot you don’t see when you step on the brakes. Pressing the brake pedal sends out fluid that activate your braking system. This forces the brake pad onto the disc rotor, causing friction and bringing your car to a stop. The brake pads of your car are fitted to the brake caliper. This is the part of the car that applies and releases the brake pads from the disc rotor.
Over time, friction wears down the brake pads, and they begin to lose their stopping power and cause damage to your brake pistons. This is why brake pads will need replacing pretty regularly.
Your brake calipers house one or more pistons depending on the model of your brakes. These pistons push or release when the brake pedal is operated. Specifically designed rubber components ensure that hydraulic brake fluid does not leak or allow dirt into the system. This is another element to keep an eye on when maintaining your brakes.
