About Brake Master Cylinders

The Audi brake master cylinder is a crucial part of the vehicle’s braking system.  It is used to convert the mechanical force from the brake pedal into hydraulic pressure in order to stop the vehicle.  The brake system is split into two circuits and the pressure in each circuit is controlled by the Audi brake master cylinder.

The Audi brake master cylinder consists of two reservoirs for brake fluid and two pistons, and is attached to the brake lines.  When the driver depresses the brake pedal, this pushes on the first piston which causes pressure to build up in the Audi brake master cylinder.  As this pressure builds up it causes the second piston to compress the brake fluid.  This pressure should be even in both cylinders.  If it’s not, it is most likely caused by a leak.  In the case of a leak, the Audi brake master cylinder to operate using one piston.  This will cause the driver to have to press the brake pedal down further and further until eventually the brakes will fail.  Any damage to the Audi brake master cylinder should be minimised and the master cylinder should be repaired immediately.

Audi trivia

  • The Audi Type K was the first car with left-hand steering as standard. This was one of Audi’s most popular cars, especially in Germany.
  • In 1971, Audi reached the landmark that all car manufacturers hope to hit sooner rather than later: the production of their millionth car. By 1976, they reached 2 million!
  • Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
  • The word Audi is a Latin translation of the word Horch, which incidentally is where we get the word audio from!
  • Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
