consist of a Disc Brake Rotor, which is
attached to the wheel, and a Caliper,
which holds the Disc Brake Pads.
Hydraulic pressure from the Master
Cylinder causes the Caliper Piston to
clamp the Disc Brake Rotor between the
Disc Brake Pads. This creates friction
between the pads and rotor, causing your
car to slow down or stop.

wheel, a Wheel Cylinder, Brake Shoes and
Brake Return Springs. Hydraulic pressure

friction between the shoes and drum to
slow or stop your car.

Built For Safety
Computer-controlled anti-lock braking
systems (ABS) are a recently developed
safety feature. When sudden stops are
made, the ABS prevents wheel lock-up.
The system is comprised of wheel-speed
sensors that monitor wheel rotation,
computer-controlled hydraulics that
pulse the brakes on and off rapidly, and
the on-board computer.
