Honda brake pads apply pressure to the brake rotors (discs), creating friction to slow or stop the vehicle. Brake pad material wears down with driving in Carmel and the pads should be replaced before the friction material is gone.
On disc brakes, brake calipers retain the Honda brake pads and are mounted over the brake rotors. They create the clamping force used to slow and stop the vehicle.
On vehicles with rear drum brakes, the shoes press against the drum to slow or stop the vehicle. With driving around Fishers, the brake shoe lining wears down. Brake shoes must be replaced before the friction material is gone.
Brake shoes press against the inner surface of the brake drums, causing friction that reduces the speed of the drums, which slows or stops the vehicle. Brake drums also dissipate heat produced during braking. Ignoring brake drum conditions may lead to system performance issues, such as reduced stopping ability. Brake drums should be replaced if the drum inside diameter is greater than the service limit. Brake drum has conditions that are deemed unrepairable, including scoring, grooves, corrosion, cracks, or contamination. Taking care of them in Westfield will help ensure braking performance, reliability, and your vehicle’s optimal braking performance.
Brake lines and hoses transfer Honda brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brake calipers. Although the steel lines and reinforced rubber hoses can withstand high brake system pressure, they can be susceptible to corrosion and damage from road debris, which can eventually lead to fluid leaks.
