Brake System: Hydraulic System

• Pedal pressure applied is transferred through brake fluid via master cylinder/booster though steel pipework towards the brake calipers

• Pistons located in the calipers push against brake pad resulting in the pad pressing against the disc

• As the brake pads wear it is normal for the brake fluid level in the reservoir to decrease

• It is not necessary to top up brake fluid, unless the level falls below the minimum level mark on the reservoir

• If brakes fluid level drops significantly, it is an indication of excessive pad wear or there is a leak in the hydraulic system

• If necessary, top up brake fluid only once new pads have been fitted.
