Brake Replacement Durham

Braking systems today are made up of many different components, the key components being a master cylinder, brake callipers, brake fluid, servo, drums, disks, pads and shoes. These work together to help you have control over your vehicle when it comes to stopping and manoeuvring. All of these components are linked by a series of brake hoses and brake pipes that contain brake fluid, this makes the brake pedal work so that when you press it the vehicle will slow down and eventually stop if pressed for long enough. The pressure that is put on the brake pedal dictates the rate that the vehicle will slow and if too much pressure is put on it will have a negative effect on the overall condition of the braking system.
