Brakes are a vital vehicle safety feature that inhibit motion by absorbing energy from a moving system. If the brake system is damaged, it can lead to irreversible damage to the tires and other components of your car while presenting significant safety risk.

Throughout the life of your car, you will need to have your brakes inspected and repaired a number of times.

It is important to respond to any signs of brake wear with a trip to your mechanic.

Basic Brake Function

Automobile brakes

Most vehicle braking systems are hydraulic which means they use fluid to transfer pressure from the controlling mechanism to the braking mechanism. Once the driver’s foot applies pressure to the brake pedal, the mechanical force is multiplied and converted into hydraulic force that is then sent to the drum brakes and disk brakes which use friction to stop the tires. The brake system employs a number of parts in order to function properly. Such components include:

  • Brake Pedal
  • Brake Booster
  • Master Cylinder
  • Brake Lines and Hoses
  • Brake Calipers and Pistons
  • Brake Pads
  • Brake Drums
  • Brake Fluid
  • More

Signs of Brake Issues

Fortunately, the signs of worn or malfunctioning brakes are usually pretty clear. Signs to look out for include:

  • Illuminated Brake Light
  • Unusual Noises While Braking
  • Wobbling or Vibrating When Brakes Are Applied
  • Leaking Fluid
  • Little Resistance When Braking
  • Burning Smell
