Hydraulic brakes stop vehicles by creating intense friction that restricts forward momentum. The friction occurs as the brake pads get clamped against the rotors attached to the wheels. Although brake pads are specifically designed for creating friction, they wear down with use and require replacement when 3-4 mm remains on the steel support plate. Vehicles have brake pads located at the front and rear wheels that often wear down at variable rates. Front brake pads handle more friction and might wear faster due to the engine’s weight on the front axle. We can inspect the brake pads, measure their thickness, and replace them as needed.
We provide GM-certified brake pad replacement services. A certified technician starts by removing the wheel assemblies to access the calipers holding the brake pads. We detach the calipers, open the brake fluid reservoir, and depress the piston to release the worn brake pads. We inspect the calipers, lines, and fluid before installing OEM pads according to specifications. We perform a driving/braking test to verify the result.
Worn brake pads cannot provide the friction necessary for peak stopping power and safety. Know the worn-out brake pad indicators and schedule service if you notice:
