Brake master cylinder replacement


What does a Brake Master Cylinder in a car do and how it works?

The brake master cylinder is a key component of the brake's hydraulic system. To apply the brakes, it converts the force on the brake pedal into hydraulic pressure. Depressing the brake pedal in the master cylinder moves a push rod. Two pistons primary and secondary are mounted on a push rod one after the other, which exerts a force against the fluid in the master cylinder bore. The pressure generated displaces fluid to each of the wheels through brake circuits and lines and applies the brakes.

Typically a defective brake master cylinder may result in following symptoms alerting the driver that service may be required.

When should you consider replacing Brake Master Cylinder?

The master cylinder has inner and outer seals that may wear out over time. Brake fluid can leak out when the external seals are worn and prevent the brakes from functioning correctly. Only an inadequate amount of brake fluid will be transferred to the brake units at the wheels if the internal seals are worn out or damaged.

It will lead to a brake pedal which feels soft on both occasions. This means the pedal won't have as much pressure as usual and can be easily pushed down the floor too. Braking performance will worsen as your brake calipers fails to push brake pads against the brake disc's and could potentially lead to dangerous road situations. If this happens, it is best not to drive the car but to have the device tested by a mechanic who can come to you as soon as possible.

To ensure adequate braking performance, brake master cylinder is vital. It is essential to service the brakes according to the manufacturer's guidelines for your car. Over time, neglecting the brake system can lead to other, more expensive repairs, as well as dangerous road situations.
