Why are brakes important?

The braking system of a car consists of various parts including master cylinder, brake lines, brake caliper, pads, and rotors. All these components function in coordination with each other to maintain the braking system. And if any one fails to do the job, it considerably affects the overall functioning of the braking system.

Master cylinder powers the braking system, and brake lines transport the fluid throughout the system. Secondly, brake caliper holds enormous importance as it contains different mechanical components such as rotors and pads. So, mechanic has to disassemble the caliper if any part within is faulty. Brake pads are quite susceptible to breakdowns, so their replacement is one of the common brake services. Also, they play a role in stopping and slowing down the vehicle. Last but not the least, brake rotors are in a direct link with the wheels, ceasing the rotation when pressure is applied.
