How do brakes work?
Your braking system is comprised of two basic parts: Friction parts and Hydraulic parts. Your friction parts are the components, pads and shoes, that compress against rotors and drums to slow and stop your vehicle. Your hydraulic system is the system that translates the pressure applied to the brake pedal to cause your friction parts to compress.
Scheduled Maintenance and Inspection.
All automobile manufacturers have scheduled maintenance periods for the various components of your braking system. Other parts of your system only require service after certain amounts of wear and use. It is important to have your braking system inspected every six months or 24,000 miles. Noise, pulsation, brake fade, squealing, chattering, and other such indicators are all reasons to have your vehicle's braking system inspected immediately. The sooner you act on indicators and regular maintenace, the less likely you are to have more expensively damaged components. Above all, you will be increasing you and your family's safety.
