Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

  • Backing plate & return spring holds your BMW braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's exceptionally important to keep BMW brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your BMW maintenance schedule for the suggested mileage intervals.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby continuing the life of your brake system.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your BMW rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your BMW brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your BMW brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined invariably for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your BMW maintenance schedule for more details on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • 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 initiate the parking brake of your BMW.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road continuously.
  • Rotors again called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are several types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Coggin Auto find the best type of brake rotors for your BMW

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 again acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can again cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate again protects the brake caliper from disproportionate 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. Mostly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

Yes, your BMW rotors will frequently last longer than your brake pads as long as you replace your pads before doing damage to your calipers or rotors. By not replacing your brake BMW pads in a regular manner you can damage the other parts.

What are the signs and symptoms of bad BMW brake rotors or pads?

Just like there are common brake issues, there are exceptionally clear signs that can signify the cause of a brake problem. Warning signs include a shaky steering wheel, trouble stopping or a loud metal scraping sound are all indicators that you need to check your BMW brakes. Yet, there are many other, and less clear, indicators that your BMW brakes may be showing which you don’t want to ignore.
