Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

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

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which again acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can again cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate again protects the brake caliper from disproportionate 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 equally distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more equally the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

Buick Front Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Wear and tear on your brakes depends considerably on your driving habits and the type of brake pads your Buick has, but ordinarily front brakes wear out before rear breaks at 30,000 - 60,000 miles because they are frequently under much less stress.
