Modern Brake System

There are two types of typical brake systems in a modern vehicle, they are:-

  1. Disc Brakes - in this system, when the brake pedal is pressed fluid is forced down a pipe to a brake caliper to force the brake pads against the brake disc causing friction and slowing the vehicle. This system is common on the front of vehicles.
  2. Drum brakes - in this system, when the brake pedal is pressed fluid is forced down a pipe to a wheel cylinder which pushes the brake shoes out against the brake drum they are housed within. This system is common on the rear of vehicles.
