What Parts Make Up Your Brakes?


The brakes on your vehicle are made up of three main parts:

  • Brake Rodors
  • Brake Pads
  • Brake Calipers

The entire braking system is facilitated through the master cylinder which is located underneath the hood. Here is where you can check or refill your brake fluid if need be. The brake fluid reservoir branches off into four lines that run through the underbelly of the car to each of the brakes on all four tires. Being that your brakes operate on a pressure-gauged system, if one of your lines cracks a leak, you will lose pressure to that tire and will begin to lose your ability to brake properly.


The brake rotor is the heart of your braking system and should be replaced if you have any sort of brake problems. Using high quality rotors is important to maintaining brake longevity and operability, as the rotor facilitates the rest of the braking system. The brake pads, which are housed in the brake caliper, are the physical mechanisms that clamp down onto the rotor, with help from a great deal of pressurized force stemming through from your brake lines into the caliper, which then halts the brake rotor and helps slows you down.
