Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

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

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & distinctive 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 serving 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 amount 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. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

Yes, your Vehicle rotors will often last longer than your brake pads as long as you replace your pads before doing break to your calipers or rotors. By not replacing your brake Vehicle pads in a timely manner you can break the other components.

How much does a Vehicle Brake Flush cost?

Proper vehicle inspections and principal maintenance like a brake flush can prevent you from having to deal with costly repairs in the future. Bring your Vehicle to our dealership to make sure your brake system is operating well. We can check your brake pads, fluid levels, rotors, calipers, brackets and everything in your brake system.

Vehicle Front Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Wear and tear on your brakes depends greatly on your driving habits and the type of brake pads your Vehicle has, but usually front brakes wear out before rear breaks at 30,000 - 60,000 miles because they are consistently under much fewer stress.

Vehicle Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

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