Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your Volkswagen brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined regularly for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your Volkswagen maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Volkswagen rotors to slow or stop your car.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to initiate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to initiate the parking brake of your Volkswagen.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's exceptionally crucial to keep Volkswagen brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Volkswagen maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Volkswagen brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your car to keep traction on the road continuously.
  • Rotors again called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let find the best type of brake rotors for your Volkswagen
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Volkswagen braking system together so it can function properly.

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 damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from disproportionate 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. Mainly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Volkswagen Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake parts ordinarily wear out well after the front brakes due to the level of stress necessary to slow a car. Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should confer your Volkswagen service manual for suggested maintenance intervals for all components. Keep in mind you should constantly have your service department perform a multipoint check which includes inspecting your brake system.

Volkswagen Brake Fluid

Where does brake fluid come into the equation? The brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is responsible for moving the components of your Volkswagen brake system. Fresh brake fluid is something few people think about, even though it can seriously affect braking performance. Brake fluid should be changed frequently. Consult your Volkswagen maintenance manual for advice on exact mileage intervals.You can even schedule your appointment online.
