Today we are going to talk about Brakes and why your brakes are such an important commodity? And why you see them advertise all over the place?
Good morning. I’m Saul Reisman here at Saul’s Automotive. Today, we are going to talk a little bit about rust, corrosion and how they effect not only your vehicle, but your safety.
we’re going to talk a little bit about the way your brakes fail when they start to wear out. From the factory your vehicle’s brake pads are anywhere from five-to-10 millimeters thick.
One of the least inspected braking systems on your vehicle is typically the parking brake. As 90 percent of vehicles sold in North America come equipped with automatic transmissions, the majority of us don’t even use our parking brake anymore because we don’t think we need to.
The next brake rotor design we’re gonna look at is what we call a dual-plane or a vented rotor.
Now, this rotor has two separate sides with a slot between them that has angled vents, so as it rotates, air flow can cool the rotor much more efficiently.
The first brake rotor design that we’re going to look at is the original single-plane rotor. Now the design of this is pretty basic. In this case it has five bolt holes where it will slide on to the hub of the vehicle.
