Brake Rotors or Brake Discs
These are the shiny metal disc that brake pads squeeze to stop the vehicle; hence the name disk brakes. Location: Front Brakes and Rear Brakes where applicable.
When brakes are applied, hydraulic fluid forces the brake pads using one or several pistons in the calipers towards the rotors, cause the brake discs to be squeezed. Location: Front Brakes and Rear Brakes where applicable.
These are the curved pieces of metal on which are bonded high-friction brake linings that are forced against the brake drums to slow or stop the car. Location: Rear Brakes where applicable. On Older Model cars, you may find Front Drum Brakes.
A drum brake is a brake in which the friction is caused by a set of shoes or pads that press against a rotating drum-shaped surface. Location: Rear Brakes where applicable. On Older Model cars, you may find Front Drum Brakes.
A hydraulic cylinder device at each wheel of a drum-brake system that transfers hydraulic pressure developed in the master cylinder to the brake shoes. Location: Rear Brakes where applicable. On Older Model cars, you may find Front Drum Brakes.
A control device that converts non-hydraulic pressure (commonly from a driver’s foot) into hydraulic pressure, in order to move other devices which are located at the other end of the hydraulic system, namely, the calipers and / or wheel cylinders located at each wheel. Location: Under Hood.
In a vehicle with power brakes, a brake booster is located between the brake pedal and the master cylinder to increase the force applied to the pistons in the master cylinder. Location: Under Hood.
The flexible tubular conduit for the transmission of fluid pressure in the brake system. Location: At each Wheel.
