Flat pads with frictional materials contact the rotor to help slow or stop the vehicle (disc brakes).

Signs of Wear:

Chirping, grinding or squealing noise, difficulty stopping the vehicle.

Did You Know?

When you step on your brake pedal, you command a stopping force 10 times as powerful as the force that puts the car in motion. The brakes system can exert as much as 1,000 pounds (450 kg) of hydraulic pressure on each of the four brakes.

What It Does:

The Brake System applies frictional force to the wheels to slow or stop the vehicle.

Service & Maintenance:

The following inspections and maintenance procedures can help prevent potential brake problems:

  • Check brake fluid level at every oil change. Replace fluid according to Owner's Manual recommendations.
  • Calipers and wheel cylinders should be checked every brake inspection and serviced or replaced as required.
  • Inspect the brake lines for rust, punctures or visible leaks (you may be able to do this, but consult a qualified technician if necessary).

The following should be conducted by a qualified technician:

  • Inspection of the brake hoses for brittleness or cracking.
  • Inspection of brake lining and pads for wear or contamination by brake fluid or grease.
  • Inspection of wheel bearings and grease seals.
  • Parking brake adjustments (as needed).



Do I have to replace all my brake parts when replacing my brake pads?

  • No, but it is a good idea to inspect them for wear-out, cracking, leaking, etc.

Does ACDelco offer other grades of brake pads?

  • Yes, ACDelco also offers GM OE Brake Pads and Professional Brake Pads.

Do I have to replace my brake pads after a certain amount of time?

  • No, but it is a good idea to inspect your brake pads at each tire rotation.
