Today's vehicle braking systems involve many different components working together to help you to stop and manoeuvre your vehicle in a controlled manner.The key components of your vehicle braking system includes a master cylinder, servo, brake callipers, brake fluid and cylinders, disks, drums, pads and shoes. All the components are linked by a series of brake hoses and brake pipes containing brake fluid, so when you press your brake pedal the vehicle slows down and stops.
In the UAE most vehicles are automatic, which means you use your brakes more often leading to brake pads wearing out faster. Regularly checking your brakes will ensure that your brake pads don't wear too low which causes your brakes to grind and damage the brake disc making it a very costly repair.
The effects of a sudden brake failure can be devastating and in the event of an accident attributed to faulty brakes, the conquences of not maintaining an effective braking system could result in prosecution.Your vehicle will also fail its year vehicle inspection test if your braking system does not meet required standards to allow your vehicle to come to an efficient stop.
