Now, we’re here in the Rocky Mountains, middle of Colorado, and we see lots of travelers, lots of tourists, going up and down I-70, using their brakes the whole time going down those mountains.
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?
today, we’re going to talk a little bit about your brake calipers and the way the hydraulic system works in your vehicle. Ninety-five percent of all motor vehicles on the road use a disc brake with a hydraulic caliper in the front of the vehicle, and 85 percent use the same set up in the rear of the vehicle.
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.
