Knowing if and why there’s runout will help you reinstall a smooth braking system.
Hydroboost brake systems are self-bleeding if there is no other problem in the system.
Regenerative braking takes the forward motion of the vehicle and turns it into electrical energy.
A proper brake inspection, some common causes for brake noise and some steps that may get overlooked.

What makes one friction material quieter or better than another? It’s a two-part answer.
ADAS can adapt, but if a replacement part falls outside the performance parameters it can cause problems.
Before you throw out the old brake pads or order a new set, take a good look at them. This video is sponsored by ADVICS.
Andrew Markel stresses the importance of replacing two brake calipers generally when one unit goes bad to avoid differences in friction coefficients on the different sides of the vehicle.
Andrew Markel discusses the computations humans make to apply the brakes on a vehicle, and how they can change based on hard or soft pedal, pulsation and vibration, or other factors.
Andrew Markel talks about brake rotor corrosion, and why they seem to always corrode on the inside first.
