Most vehicles utilize hydraulics in their braking systems meaning that fluid is used to transfer force. When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, that force is then multiplied by the power booster and master cylinder. Then, brake fluid is forced through tubes and channels known as brake lines and hoses. Once the fluid reaches the drum or disk brakes, the pressure is transferred to the brake pad where friction between the pad and the rotor slows the wheel and ultimately brings the vehicle to a stop.
Given the complexity of the braking system, there is room for issues to arise over time. That is why it is important to have your brakes inspected routinely (every six to eight months) or immediately if one of the below warning signs manifests.
