Brake Pads & Discs   Servo & Master Cylinder
Brake pads wear the most often and should be checked regularly that there is enough pad left and that it's not worn out or has been contimatinated. The discs also need to be checked that they have not got any grooves or that they have been warped due to excessive heat.
  Vehicles have been fitted with servo assisted brakes since the 1970's. It enhances the effort that is depressed from the foot pedal. The master cylinder distributes the brake fluid into the different brake lines so that when the pedal is pressed the brake caliper can action the brake pads. Failure is this system is deadly and should be checked for leaks as part of routine maintenance.

  Brake lines are generally made with copper pipe and the flexi hoses are made from rubber. As we know rubber can perish after time and copper pipes can become corroded.

Failure of these system may result in death.
