About Brake Servo Units
The brake servo unit, if fitted, is an aid to the hydraulic braking system. With the operation of the servo unit less force is required on the brake pedal.
The servo unit is situated in the braking system and has a connecting rod that runs between the brake pedal, the master cylinder and fluid reservoir and is commonly found in the engine compartment.
The Fiat brake servo unit is a bulbous cylinder which contains a central diaphragm. On each side of the diaphragm there are two separate chambers The cylinder has a vacuum feed from the engine manifold this maintains a vacuum in both chambers. When the brake pedal is pressed an influx of external air is sucked into one side of the diaphragm, the air pressure rises as the vacuum is broken which pushes the diaphragm to assist the movement of the master cylinder which forces the hydraulic fluid through the piping to the slave cylinders on the brakes of each wheel. When the footbrake is released the vacuum is restored to the chamber.
Signs that there's a problem with the Fiat brake servo unit can be that the pedal becomes heavy and requires increased force to operate the brakes.
- Fiat has won the European Car of the Year award an incredible nine times, more than any other manufacturer. However, the first Fiat to win the prestigious award was the 124 model, which was released in 1967.
- The British School of Motoring uses Fiats as learner vehicles. They moved from the Vauxhall Corsa to Fiats in 2009, and Fiat has now supplied over 14,000 vehicles to the BSM.
- There was an ongoing joke in the UK that Fiat was an acronym for 'Fix it again, Tony'. Fiat found it hilarious and used the slogan themselves in 2014 in their ads.
- The 1999 Fiat Multipla has been consistently voted one of the strangest car designs of all time. It’s easy to see why, with the odd light placement, a muffin-shaped top, and two rows of three seats (in the front!). A redesign in 2004 made the Multipla much more popular.
- While the name Fiat is an acronym of 'Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino', it also translates to 'so be it' in Italian!
