Brake pads are designed to create maximum friction when clamped against wheel rotors. Brake pads are a high-friction material that contains metallic components bound to a steel backing plate. Caliper pistons press into the steel backing plate as the brake pads press into the wheel rotors. The intense friction and heat cause the pads to wear away as brake dust. Brake pad replacement service is necessary for safe braking at factory specifications. Brake pads often wear out at variable rates depending upon their position, so we replace all, front, or rear brake pads as needed.
Brake pads are designed to warn drivers when they need replacement service. Newer Chevrolet models are equipped with a brake pad monitoring system with a dashboard warning light when service is due. All brake pads emit an eardrum piercing metallic screech when worn as the steel warning strip scrapes against the wheel rotor. Here are the warning signs that your Chevrolet is due for brake pad replacement service:
A certified technician begins by removing the wheel assemblies and exposing the braking components. The caliper is unbolted, the brake fluid reservoir uncapped, the caliper piston depressed, and the worn brake pads removed. We inspect the caliper, lines, and rotors before installing genuine OEM brake pad parts. We perform a driving test to check braking performance.
We recommend scheduling service online for maximum scheduling ease. Simply provide the pertinent service details to schedule your appointment online within a minute or two. We also schedule appointments by phone if customers prefer. Brake pad replacement service includes a complimentary multi-point inspection that helps drivers stay on top of overall vehicle performance and maintenance.
