Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

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

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.

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

Just like there are common brake issues, there are very noticeable signs that can indicate 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 Porsche brakes. However, there are many other, and less obvious, indicators that your Porsche brakes may be showing which you don’t want to ignore.
