Parking brake: task in the vehicle

The most important function of the parking brake can already be seen from its name. When the car is parked in one place, locking an axle is intended to prevent the vehicle from rolling with the help of this brake. It is located in the center of the vehicle interior and can be pulled up powerfully, with the locking being achieved via a lever mechanism. This type of security is indispensable for holding or parking the car on a road with an incline or decline, otherwise the vehicle could roll away by itself.

While driving, the parking brake is used in the same way so that you don't have to keep your foot on the brake pedal when driving off or while waiting. Since it works purely mechanically, tightening it requires more effort than pedaling. The braking effect decreases over the course of months and years, but the parking brake can be tightened and does not have to be replaced immediately with corresponding spare parts.

In addition to the frequent use of the parking brake with wear and tear on the associated brake parts, the brake line can tear as it ages and the movement is too jerky.

It is immediately apparent that the parking brake has a defect. Pulling up the lever inside the vehicle is possible without any resistance. Even when parked and the brake applied, the vehicle is still mobile and threatens to roll, for example, on a downhill slope after parking. It is essential to supplement the brake with the right car parts and in the meantime park the vehicle only on a level surface.
