About our vacuum pumps

The vacuum pump improves the efficiency of your car brakes, using a combination of atmospheric pressure and the pulling force of a vacuum to multiply the amount of force as you press on the brakes.

How do vacuum pumps work?

When we press the brake pedal in our car, we don't often give much thought to what's actually making the car stop. Unsurprisingly, it takes more than just pressing on a pedal. The action of pushing your foot down sets off a whole chain of events, with perhaps the most important being the application of a vacuum pump to increase the braking pressure.

What would happen without a vacuum pump?

If you didn’t have a brake vacuum pump fitted, it would make stopping your vehicle safely all that more difficult. If you notice it is getting more difficult to brake then you may need to replace your vacuum pump to make sure you maintain your braking efficiency.
