What are the different components in your vehicle's braking system?
When you press your foot down on the brake pedal, it moves a class 2 lever and forces a piston into a master cylinder filled with hydraulic fluids. As the piston moves into the cylinder, it squeezes out the fluid through a narrow pipe at the end. The pipe then feeds into a wider cylinder placed next to your car's brakes before bringing your vehicle to a halt.
The master cylinder is responsible for converting the non-hydraulic pressure into hydraulic pressure. The wheel cylinders use this hydraulic pressure to press the brake pads against the rotors.
A brake booster increases your vehicle's braking efficiency and reduces the amount of pressure you need to apply on the pedal.
Brake pads and disc brakes
Your car's disc brake pushes brake pads against the rotor instead of the wheels, which transmits hydraulic force. This friction between the discs and pads gradually brings your car to a halt.
Please note that most of these damaged brake parts cannot be repaired. You can only opt for brake pad replacement Wellington, Telfordservices under such circumstances.
