Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Lincoln brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Brake pads or shoes are the elements that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and prohibit your wheels from turning. It's extremely crucial to keep Lincoln brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Lincoln maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps impede grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Lincoln braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Lincoln.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Lincoln rotors to slow or prohibit your vehicle.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at all times.
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Lincoln brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected continuously for cracks and different symptoms of deterioration. Check your Lincoln maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Lincoln brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to prohibit the wheels from spinning. There are divergent types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Lincoln Plano find the marvelous type of brake rotors for your Lincoln

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.
