How does an automobile ;s braking system function?

When you step down on the brake pedal, the system transmits pressure to tyres so that they stop rolling and the vehicle comes to a halt. It does this using hydraulics, which evenly transfers pressure to each of the four wheels.

    • Drum brakes:

When applying the brakes, the brake fluid pushes its way to the wheel cylinder of the drum brakes. This causes the brake shoes to come in contact with the drum brakes, thereby slowing down or stopping the car.

    • Disc brakes:

With these, the brake fluid from the master cylinder forces inside a caliper (calipers house the brake pads) which presses against a piston. Now, that piston pushes against two brake pads on the disc rotor, causing the wheel to grind to a halt.

As you can understand, the mechanism is quite complex and even minor faults can compromise the overall braking efficiency.

At Lou's Tyres Limited, our technical know-how makes us one of the most reliable garages for brake pad replacement Scunthorpe.
