About Servo Units
If the brake pedal is hard to push up and down this could be a sign of a faulty BMW servo unit. This unit is part of the brake master cylinder, which connects to the brake pedal using pushrods and is typically positioned on the nearside of the engine compartment.
The BMW servo unit is used in a hydraulic braking system to reduce the pressure required by the driver when applying the brakes. It works by using the power of a vacuum created by the suction of the intake manifold in the internal combustion engine. This reduces the amount of driver effort required when braking. The remaining power is then transferred to the master cylinder.
If a BMW servo unit or the brake master cylinder is damaged, this could lead to complete failure of a vehicle’s hydraulic braking system. This may be evidenced by a hydraulic fluid leak, or the brake pedal being flat to the floor. If just the BMW servo unit fails, the driver will notice an increased difficulty in depressing the brakes. As with all brake issues, it is very important that they are addressed quickly to prevent any further damage to the vehicle.
- The main headquarters for BMW in Munich is designed and shaped to look like car parts. There was a whole new 'four-cylinder' building added on in 1973, and there's definitely the look of an engine about the architecture.
- The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
- Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
- Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
- Did you know that BMW built a Lamborghini? The two popular companies decided to make a race car together, but Lamborghini pulled out during the manufacturing process. BMW carried on, and the final result was the original BMW M1 supercar.
