Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Chevrolet brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at each times.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to activate the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to activate the parking brake of your Chevrolet.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Chevrolet brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Chevrolet rotors to slow or prohibit your vehicle.
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Chevrolet brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected constantly for cracks and back-up symptoms of deterioration. Check your Chevrolet maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to prohibit the wheels from spinning. There are copious types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Nalley Chevrolet find the best type of brake rotors for your Chevrolet
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and prohibit your wheels from turning. It's tremendously exciting to keep Chevrolet brake pads fresh by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Chevrolet maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Chevrolet braking system together so it can function correctly.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that constists of rubber, fiber, carbon & additional materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which also acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can also cause damages to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start warping them. In addition to helping as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate also protects the brake caliper from excessive heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The discard of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Usually, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

What are the signs and symptoms of bad Chevrolet brake rotors or pads?

Just like there are logical brake issues, there are especially detectable signs that can indicate the cause of a brake problem. Warning signs include a shaky steering wheel, trouble stopping or a loud metal scraping sound are all indicators that you need to check your Chevrolet brakes. However, there are many supplemental, and less detectable, indicators that your Chevrolet brakes may be showing which you don’t want to ignore.

  • Your car is wobbling or rocking when driving at higher speeds
  • Your vehicle doesn't stay straight when you brake, pulling in either direction

How often do brake rotors need to be replaced?

Chevrolet Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake parts consistently wear out accurately after the front brakes due to the level of stress required to slow a vehicle. Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should consult your Chevrolet service manual for recommended maintenance intervals for all parts. Keep in mind you should always have your service department perform a multipoint inspection which includes inspecting your brake system.
