How Does the Braking System Work?
Everybody knows how brakes work; you press down on them and your vehicle stops, right? Sure, that’s the general idea, but a lot goes on underneath to make this vital system work. Your pedal is connected to a power booster, which uses an engine vacuum or hydraulic to force the master cylinder in pushing brake fluid through the lines of each wheel cylinder. This then slows down the vehicle through pressure on the rotors on each brake pad. That’s a lot of moving parts that go into this system, leaving a lot that can wear and break down, requiring servicing to function properly. Your braking system is one of the most important on your vehicle, so constant maintenance is a must.
When Do You Need Brake Service?
Brake service is needed on your vehicle around every 80,000 km—of course, that’s just for regular check-ups. if you notice anything off about your brakes, from irregular sounds to a sponginess when pressed or an indicator light, get your brakes checked immediately. Brakes wear down with just general, natural use, not including any rigorous or aggressive driving behaviour that could break them down even sooner, so it’s always crucial to keep tabs on your brakes’ health. Your Mitsubishi car or SUV deserves the best, so make sure its health is always looked after.
