Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Acura brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Acura.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Acura brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected frequently for cracks and substitute symptoms of deterioration. Check your Acura maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the elements that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and applies pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's extremely vital to retain Acura brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Acura maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Acura braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to retain traction on the road at comprehensive times.
  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are plentiful types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Nalley Acura find the premium type of brake rotors for your Acura
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Acura brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Acura rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.
