Have you ever wondered how your original Toyota brakes work? After all, the factory braking system is essential when it comes to your safety as well as that of others on the road. Some would say it's simple. Step on the brakes and the car or SUV stops. There's much more to it than that, though. When your foot presses on the brake pedal, brake fluid is forced out of the master brake cylinder. The hydraulic brake fluid is then pushed through a network of brake lines and brake hoses. Pressure is sent in equal measure to all of the calipers. That causes the brake pads to clamp onto your brake rotors. The resulting friction restricts the motion of your tires, causing your vehicle to slow and then stop.
Discover Why Toyota Brakes are Your Best Choice
The heat caused by the pads and rotors resisting each other can do damage over time, even to the highest quality brake parts. You may be fortunate enough to have your dashboard warning light alert you when something begins to fail. More likely, you'll need to pay attention to the signs of bad brakes. These might show up as strange noises when you’re braking, or the brake pedal suddenly feeling squishy. If your brake pedal vibrates or the vehicle shudders violently every time you brake, that's a sure sign of a warped rotor. You'll want to get that fixed as soon as possible, because that greatly reduces your ability to safely stop. You can get everything you need for the job right here in our auto parts inventory.
