Front & Rear Split System

When the brake pedal is depressed, both the primary (front brake) and the secondary (rear brake) master cylinder pistons are moved simultaneously to exert hydraulic fluid pressure on their respective systems.

If the rear (secondary) brake system fails, initial brake pedal movement will cause the unrestricted secondary piston to bottom in the master cylinder bore. Primary piston movement will displace hydraulic fluid in the primary section of the master cylinder to actuate the front brake system.

If the front (primary) brake system fails, initial brake pedal mo...

This unit utilizes a vacuum power chamber, consisting of a front and rear shell, housing divider, front and rear diaphragm, plate assemblies, hydraulic pushrod and a diaphragm return spring, Fig. .

In normal operating mode, with service brakes in released position, the booster operates with vacuum on both sides of its diaphragms. When brakes are applied, air at atmospheric pressure is admitted to one side of each diaphragm to provide power assist. When the service brake is released, atmospheric air is shut off from one side of each diaphragm. The air is ...

Anti-lock Brakes -> Lucas/Sumitomo -> Description -> ABS Indicator -> Brake Pressure Modulator Valve/Electronic Brake Control Module -> System Components -> System Operation -> Wheel Speed Sensors
Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Vibe GT 1.8 L4 GAS

System Operation

The Lucas/Sumitomo system is a hybrid non-integral Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). The system uses a single valve per channel, 4 channel system to reduce the tendency of any wheel to lock-up. ABS operation is available from approximately 4 mph to maximum vehicle speed. During braking, ABS is available from maximum vehicle speed to 3 mph. ABS is used to minimize wheel slipping during braking, allowing for improved vehicle stability and steerability. ABS is accomplished by controlling the hydraulic pressure applied to each front wheel brake and both rear wheel brakes a...

Two basic types of power assist mechanisms are used: vacuum assist diaphragm assemblies, which use engine vacuum or, in some cases vacuum pressure developed by an external vacuum pump. The second type is a hydraulic pressure assist mechanism, which use pressure developed by an external pump (usually the power steering pump). Both systems act to increase the force exerted on the master cylinder piston by the operator. This in turn increases the hydraulic pressure delivered to the wheel cylinders while decreasing driver effort required to obtain acceptable stopping performance.
