How Many Parts Make Up a Brake System?

The original brake systems were relatively simple in design and use. When depressing the brake pedal, the driver was pushing forward a set of blocks on the forward wheels to create friction to slow, and eventually stop, the vehicle. Since then, many brake designs have been used. Today, the brake system coordinates with the whole of the vehicle for many purposes.

Brakes consist of the brake pedal the driver pushes to activate the brake, a master-cylinder with a plunger that presses on and compresses brake fluid into a brake line, and the brakes pads that press against the wheel. If any of these parts is compromised in any way, the system begins to work poorly. If there is any change in the feel when you push the brake pedal, have your brakes inspected.
