Automotive Emergency Brake Diagram

For vehicles with drum brakes, the emergency brake cable is mounted to a hand operated lever, or a foot pedal, and is connected to the brake shoes. On vehicles with disc brakes the emergency brake cable is still mounted to the hand lever or foot pedal but operates in a different way. For calipers with a single piston floating the system uses the existing rear wheel caliper and adds a lever attached to a mechanical corkscrew device inside the caliper piston. When the parking brake cable pulls on the lever, this corkscrew device pushes the piston against the pads bypassing the hydraulic system to stop the vehicle. For systems with a four piston fixed type caliper the corkscrew system cannot be used. Instead a mechanical drum brake unit is mounted inside the rear rotor. The brake shoes on this system are connected to a lever that is pulled by the parking brake cable to activate the brakes. The brake drum is the inside part of the brake rotor.
