It is important to inspect your brake system periodically. Check the level of brake fluid and the thickness of the brake pads or shoes. Before checking the brake fluid level, the cover of the master cylinder must be wiped off so no foreign material can fall inside the reservoir. The brake pads and brake shoes should be periodically inspected for the amount of wear the brake pad has endured and replace as needed.
Brake systems are designed to slow the vehicles wheel movement through friction.

There are primarily two brake systems, ABS and non ABS (anti-lock brake system). Both systems work on basic hydraulics and utilize a brake master cylinder (connected to the brake pedal in the car) that supplies brake fluid pressure to the front brake calipers and rear wheel cylinder or brake calipers if so equipped.
