A vehicle's braking system is not complete without the brake assembly parts that work together to convert the vehicle's momentum into heat. All of these parts work together to keep you safe on the road and ready for anything, whether you're just going about your day or in the middle of an emergency.
Brake pads, brake rotors (sometimes referred to as brake discs), callipers, and maybe a master cylinder and brake lines make up the majority of the brake system components. The friction created between the brake pads and the braking rotors causes the vehicle to slow down or stop. The brake pads are compressed against the revolving braking rotors by the callipers, which are also responsible for housing the pads. The master cylinder of a hydraulic braking system pumps fluid under pressure via the brake lines and into the callipers.
