Modern car braking systems are designed to a very high standard, but the need for the home mechanic to know how to maintain their braking system is as important as ever. Whether upgrading your brakes at home or for the race track, Car Brakes offers guidance on upgrading, repairing and maintaining car braking systems. With step-by-step instructions, the book covers the key principles of braking systems, both drum and disc; stripping and rebuilding disc and drum brakes, and the replacement of brake pads and callipers; rebuilding and maintaining handbrakes and how to install a hydraulic handbrake; replacing and repairing brake lights; upgrading your brakes and finally, fault-finding and safety tips.
Jonathan Lawes is an instructor at an aviation engineering training school, having previously worked as a race engineer. He is an avid motorsport enthusiast, and is currently developing a Ford Zetec-engined Escort Mk2 to compete in hillclimbs. He lives at Gillingham in Dorset.
