Mazda Brakes Buying Guide
What They Do
Slow down and stop your vehicle completely. To do that, their many parts must work together to produce friction.
How Many and What Types There are
Two -- disc and drum brakes.
How They Work
Press the brake pedal, the brake pistons pump through the master brake cylinder's bore, brake fluid gets pressurized, and the fluid flows through the brake hoses and lines. In a drum brake, the process clamps brake shoes to brake drums. In a disc brake, the process clamps brake rotors to brake calipers with brake pads attached to them.
How Long They Last
That depends on the condition of each part.
The Signs They Need to be Replaced
- Dashboard warning lights
- Shuddering or pulling sideways when braking
- A brake pedal that feels too low or soft
- Weaker brake grip than usual
- Longer slowing and stopping times
- Grinding and other odd brake noises
When They Should be Changed Otherwise
Upon the results of a brake inspection. Be sure to check the brake pedal, fluid, lines, hoses, assemblies, and parking brake. Before ordering parts, be sure what you're getting is genuine.
