How do Your Brakes Work?

Brakes are something that you hardly ever think about until something goes wrong. Your brakes use friction to overcome the energy generated by the car moving forward. When the driver pushes on the brake pedal, the lever pushes a piston into the master cylinder. The master cylinder is filled with hydraulic fluid. This multiplies the force of your foot and transfers it to the brake system. The hydraulic fluid causes the brake caliper to press the brake pad against the brake disc. This creates friction and heat in the brake pad.

While stopping, the brakes can heat to 950°F or more. They must be able to withstand incredible forces to work properly. Service your brakes at our Montgomery service center soon for continued performance.

Brakes are pretty remarkable when you think about it, and keeping them in top shape is a priority. Capitol Hyundai Montgomery has everything you need to keep them in the best order possible.
