Mazda Car Brakes

How does the brake system work and how can you best care for them? The brake system includes many components and advanced technology make sure your brakes function properly. Learn more about the components and function of the Mazda braking system, as well as Mazda safety technology, with us at Power Mazda.

How Do Car Brakes Work?

Once you push down on the brake pedal, a lever pushes a piston into a hydraulic fluid-filled cylinder. This causes the brake pad to press against the brake disc, and the friction slows the outer wheels to stop the vehicle. In some models, the cylinder pushes the cylinder against the brake drum to reduce the speed of your vehicle.

How to Care for Your Brakes

Make sure to have your brakes and brake pads are checked at least once a year. In between regular checkups, follow these tips to ensure you brakes continue to function properly. Here’s what you can do:

  • Keep an eye and ear out for warning signs that there may be something wrong
  • Avoid braking when drivers in front of you are braking unnecessarily
  • Coast to slow down before you apply the brakes
  • Check your brake fluid levels regularly and replaced when needed

  • There’s squeaking or grinding sounds when you brake
  • You notice fluid is leaking
