Brake pedal functionality is to control the brakes and slow down the car when pressed. The brake pedal employs a class-two lever, which makes it easier for us to apply enough force easily to stop or slow down the car. Sometimes, however, brake pedals get soft and can be a little lower than their normal place.
A hydraulic brake system uses brake fluid to transfer the pressure from the brake pedal to brake pads. When you push down the brake pedal, it applies the pressure on the master cylinder that in turn opens the door for brake fluid to enter the compensating port, increasing the pressure in the hydraulic system. The master cylinder then applies the pressure to the brake pads, and the reverse happens when your foot comes off the brake pedal.
If your car’s brake pedal is lower than usual from one of the many reasons, you should get it checked right away as spongy brakes or improper braking system can have some serious implications. Book a mechanic to diagnose and eradicate the problem as soon as possible.
