Disc Brakes

How do Disc Brakes Work?

A disc brake system consists of a brake disc, a brake caliper and brake pads.

When the brake pedal is applied, pressurised hydraulic fluid squeezes the brake pad friction material against the surface of the rotating brake disc.

The result of this contact produces friction which enables the vehicle to slow down or stop.

How do you know if your brake discs need replacing?

If you hear a grinding noise when you brake, it could mean your brake pads or discs need replacing. Brake pads include a metal wear indicator that make a noise when it contacts the brake disc. When your pads are worn to this extent, it is likely you will need to replace the discs too
