Whether you’ve got disc brakes or drum brakes, our top mechanics on the North Shore  deal with any brakes or brake pad issues you might be having, get in touch with these Auckland car service specialists.

We all know that by pushing down on the brake pedal brings a car to a stop, but there are quite a few process that go into making this happen. When you push your brake pedal, your car transfers the force from your foot (plus a little extra) to the brakes through brake fluid.

Most modern cars have disc brakes on the front wheels and drum wheels on the back although some have disc brakes on all four wheels. This is the part of the brake system that does the actual work of bringing a car to a stop.

The main parts of a disc brake are:

  • The brake pads
  • The brake caliper
  • The brake rotor

The disc brake is similar to the brakes on a bike. In a disc brake in your car, the brake pads squeeze the rotor instead of the wheel, and the force is hydraulic instead of being transmitted through a cable. Friction between the pads and the disc slow the disc (and wheels) down.

Drum brakes are a little more complex than disc brakes and are harder to service, but they are less expensive to manufacture and are equally efficient at bringing your car to a stop. Autoland, North Shore, your local brake shop for either disc brakes or drum brakes!
