What Are the Parts of the Brake System?

The brake system is an important component of any vehicle, as it is responsible for slowing down and stopping the vehicle. The main parts of a typical brake system include:

1. Disc Brake: contain brake caliper, brake pad, wheel hub, brake rotor

  • Brake calipers: are responsible for applying pressure to the brake pads, which then clamp down on the brake rotor to slow or stop the vehicle.
  • Brake pads: are the component that actually makes contact with the brake rotor to slow or stop the vehicle.
  • Wheel hub: is the central part of the wheel assembly, to which the brake rotor or brake drum is attached. It is responsible for providing a mounting point for the wheel and allowing it to rotate smoothly.
  • Brake rotor: Brake rotors are flat, metal discs that are attached to the wheel hub and spin with the wheel. When the brake pedal is pressed, the brake pads clamp down on the brake rotors to slow or stop the vehicle.

2. Drum brakes: are made up of a brake drum, brake shoes, and a wheel cylinder. When the brake pedal is pressed, the wheel cylinder pushes the brake shoes against the inside of the brake drum, causing the vehicle to slow down or stop.

  • Brake drums: are round, hollow cylinders that are part of drum brake systems. The brake shoes make contact with the inner surface of the brake drums to create friction and facilitate braking.
  • Brake shoes: are used in drum brake systems. They are curved metal pieces lined with friction material, and when the brake pedal is pressed, the brake shoes are pushed against the inside of the brake drum to generate friction and slow down or stop the vehicle.
  • Wheel cylinder: a hydraulic device located at the top or bottom of the brake backing plate, positioned between the brake shoes. Works in conjunction with other parts, such as brake shoes, brake drum, and hydraulic lines, to facilitate effective braking.

3. Brake pedal: a part of the brake system that the driver presses with their foot to activate the brakes.

4. Brake booster: a component that amplifies the force exerted on the brake pedal, making it easier for the driver to apply the necessary force to stop the vehicle.

5. Master cylinder: is responsible for converting the force applied to the brake pedal into hydraulic pressure that is then sent to the brake calipers or drum brakes.

6. Brake lines and hoses: Brake lines and hoses connect the master cylinder to the brake calipers or wheel cylinders. They are responsible for transporting brake fluid and hydraulic pressure to the braking components.

7. Brake fluid reservoir: a container that holds the brake fluid. It is usually located on top of the master cylinder or in close proximity to it. The reservoir allows for the expansion and contraction of brake fluid as it heats up and cools down during braking.

8. Brake warning light: The brake warning light on the dashboard illuminates when there is a problem with the brake system. It can indicate a low brake fluid level, a malfunction in the ABS system, or other brake-related issues.

9. Brake hardware: includes various clips, springs, pins, and retainers that are used to hold the brake pads, calipers, and other brake system components in place.
