Your vehicle’s brake system includes a brake disc or rotor, a brake caliper, and brake pads. When you press the brake pedal, pressurized hydraulic fluid forces the brake pads against the surface of the rotor, which produces friction to slow down your vehicle.
Symptoms of Needing Brake Service:
Brake service can entail replacing one or all brake components. Most commonly, brake pads need replacing because they endure a majority of the friction during the braking process and wear away faster.
Your brake rotors, which the brake pads squeeze against to slow down, also wear down due to friction and eventually require replacing.
Like other fluids in your car, brake fluid also needs to be replaced because it loses its effectiveness as it collects dirt and debris over time.
