  • Hydraulic brake lines or hoses play the important role of connecting the two main working parts of the brake, i.e. the master cylinder and slave cylinder. We've already mentioned that hydraulic systems can be very versatile in that their lines or hoses can be routed almost anywhere so let's take a closer look.

    Modern motor cars are fitted with disc brakes instead of conventional drum type brakes. Front wheels are generally has disc brakes whereas rear wheel are provided with drum brakes. A disc brake contains a rotating disc and two friction pads which are actuated by hydraulic braking system as described earlier. The friction pads stay free on each side of disc when brakes are not applied. When brakes are applied they rub in contradiction to the disc to stop the vehicle. The working of this brake is the same method as that of hydraulic brakes. But the way of stopping the vehicle is not the same as that of drum brakes.
