About Brake Pedals
The Alfa Romeo brake pedal is a metal pedal located inside the vehicle on the driverside and is depressed by the driver’s foot to apply the brakes and stop the vehicle. The Alfa Romeo brake pedal is attached to a rod which in turn is attached to the brake master cylinder. This cylinder creates the necessary pressure in the brakes to activate them. When the driver depresses the brake pedal it causes a brake pad to rub on the brake disk and create friction, slowing down the vehicle.
The Alfa Romeo brake pedal is quite sturdy and isn’t prone to failure, however the top plate of the pedal which is depressed by the driver can become worn and make it difficult to brake without the foot slipping. The Alfa Romeo brake pedal can also give you a good indication of any other brake issues in your vehicle. For example, if your brake pedal goes straight down to the floor or is loose it could indicate either a failed master cylinder or damage to the push rod. This metal rod is attached to the brake pedal and allows the pedal to be depressed. Damage to these components can cause brake failure.
Alfa Romeo trivia
- The Italian police love the Alfa Romeo, and so the 159 model is driven by both the standard police force and the special forces branches of the Italian police.
- All car companies have a slogan, but Alfa Romeo never seemed happy with theirs. They have had several, with everything from ‘The family car that wins races’ to ‘Mediocrity is a sin’. In 2020, they’re sticking with ‘Beauty is not enough. Power for your control.’
- In 1933, the Italian government ‘acquired’ Alfa Romeo, and they kept their hold on it until 1986. That’s when Fiat bought the company and the government had no choice but to let it go.
- One of the most famous onscreen appearances of an Alfa Romeo was in the James Bond film Octopussy when the superspy stole a graphite GTV6. The car brand shows up again in Quantum of Solace, racing against Bond’s Aston Martin.
- Due to tax shenanigans, the very first Alfa-branded car was named the 24HP, even though it came with a 25 horsepower 4.1-litre engine. It was quick and could do a satisfying 62mph, despite having wooden spoke wheels.
