Brake Systems

Brake fluid

  • This hydraulic fluid distributes pressure via the master cylinder to the wheels. Contact your Lexus Assistant Service Manager for appropriate brake fluid service intervals for your Lexus vehicle.

Brake booster

  • Increases the force applied to the brake master cylinder in response to the driver’s pressure on the brake pedal.

Disc brake

  • When the brakes are applied, the caliper clamps the brake pads against both sides of the rotor, which slows the rotation of the front wheels.

Master cylinder

  • Changes the force applied to the brake pedal into hydraulic force.
