Disc brake system

Disk Brakes


At European & foreign Motor Works, we treat most modern cars that have disc brakes on the front and rear wheels, OEM brake pads, and some have disc brakes on all four wheels, calipers and others components. Like a master cylinder, power booster are parts of the brake system that does the actual work of stopping the car. Brake fluid flush is also important and is scheduled to be replaced every 2 years in the most of the cars.


The most common type of disc brake on modern cars is the single-piston floating caliper. To see how some disc brakes work, click this link for video.




Drum brakes


Drum brakes work on the same principle s disc brakes: Shoes press against a spinning surface. In this system, that surface is called a drum.


Many cars have drum brakes on the rear wheels and disc brakes on the front. Drum brakes have more parts than disc brakes and are harder to service, but they are less expensive to manufacture, and they easily incorporate an emergency brake mechanism.

ABS System


Stopping a car in a hurry on a slippery road can be very challenging. Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) take a lot of the challenge out of this nerve-wrecking event. In fact, on slippery surfaces, even professional drivers can't stop as quickly without ABS as an average driver can with ABS.


European & Foreign Motor Works dedicate this article for our customers. We'll learn all about anti-lock braking systems, why you need them, what's in them, how they work, and what are the common problems associated with ABS.
