How Brake Pads and Rotors Work

Brakes play a critical role in car safety, if not one of the most important roles. The brake system as a whole is made up a different parts and components that work together to slow your vehicle when you press on the brake pedal. Two important components are the brake pads and rotors. When you step on the brakes, hydraulic fluid forces brake pads to clamp down on rotors, also called discs, to stop the wheels from spinning.
