They are both made to wear out over time and eventually be replaced to continue serving their purpose. If you let either the brake pads on your car or the eraser on your pencil wear all the way down to nothing, then you will not be able to stop or erase, respectively.

Let the expert ASE-Certified Technicians at Garber Chevrolet in Midland help you return to seamless stopping. If you feel like it takes longer to bring your car to a halt or you hear a squealing noise coming from the braking system, ease your fears and come into our service center today.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator border_width=”2″][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_btn title=”View All Our Services” style=”custom” custom_background=”#0185cf” custom_text=”#ffffff” size=”lg” align=”left” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-right” link=”url:%2Fall-auto-repair-services%2F|||” add_icon=”true”][vc_btn title=”View Current Specials & Deals” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#000000″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#000000″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” align=”left” link=”url:%2Fservice%2Fservice-specials%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/6″][vc_separator border_width=”2″][vc_column_text]

Brake FAQ’s—

[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion style=”modern” active_section=”” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”How do I know if my brakes may need to be replaced?” tab_id=”how-do-i-know”][vc_column_text]Your brakes may need to be replaced if: they are not as responsive as normal, your car pulls to one direction when braking, you hear a high pitched sound when you brake, or your brake pedal pulsates when coming to a stop.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What should I do if I think my brakes need to be replaced?” tab_id=”what-should-i-do”][vc_column_text]If you suspect your brakes need to be replaced, stop into Garber Chevrolet in Midland or contact one of our friendly service advisors for a complete brake inspection. During the inspection, we will test all components of your vehicle’s braking system; then walk you through our recommended course of action, whether a repair is needed now or possibly down the road.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How often should I have my brakes checked?” tab_id=”how-often”][vc_column_text]The frequency at which your brakes need to be serviced or replaced is largely dependent on your vehicle and driving style. Having your brakes checked at least once annually is important to guarantee your safety and your vehicle’s stopping ability. However, if you drive more than average, are generally “rough” on your brakes, or travel through the city frequently- having your brakes checked more often may be necessary.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What does it mean if my brake pedal feels harder/softer than normal? Or, why did my brake pedal drop to the floor?” tab_id=”brake-pedal-feels-harder-softer”][vc_column_text]If a brake pedal is either harder or softer than normal, there’s a good chance that some element of the braking system is not fully functional. A leak in the system or incorrect brake adjustments are two possible causes.

If a brake pedal drops to the floor, there may be air in the brake hydraulics. It can also be caused by a malfunction in the braking system or a leak elsewhere.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What if I didn’t purchase my car from you? Or, you don’t carry the make of my vehicle?” tab_id=”what-if-i-didnt-purchase”][vc_column_text]Garber Chevrolet takes pride in repairing all vehicle makes, models, and ages. Whether you purchased your car from us or another dealership, we are happy to help with your vehicle needs.

Everything you need to know about brakes—

[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion style=”modern” active_section=”” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”How do brakes make a car stop?” tab_id=”how-do-brakes-make-a-car-stop”][vc_column_text]Just as numerous components within the human body work together so we can move around and perform different tasks, the braking system of a car follows a similar concept. The system is composed of several different parts, all of which perform a specific task; when each part does its job, the outcome is a collective system that brings your car to a stop.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What components are a part of the braking system?” tab_id=”what-parts-are-included”][vc_column_text]Rotor – These are connected to each tire and in order for the vehicle to stop the rotor must also stop spinning. The rotor comes to a halt when friction created by the brake pad impedes its movement.

Brake Pads – These are responsible for connecting with the rotors to create friction which ceases vehicle movement.

Calipers – These are responsible for adding pressure to the brake pads to create a connection with the rotors. The caliper relies on brake fluid to function properly.

Brake Fluid – Just as motor oil and gasoline are necessary for your car to run, brake fluid is the vital element for the braking system to operate. Without the proper level of brake fluid, your car’s stopping distance could be lengthened. If there is very little or no brake fluid, then your car may not stop at all.

Hose – This hose transfers brake fluid from the brake pedal you engage with your foot to the calipers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What happens when I press the brake pedal?” tab_id=”press-the-brake-pedal”][vc_column_text]When you hit the brakes, you engage a cylinder of brake fluid that is delivered to the brake calipers. The calipers activate the brake pads which pressurize the rotors, creating the friction needed to bring the car to a stop.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” ult_hide_row=”ult_hide_row_value” ult_hide_row_mobile=”mobile” ult_hide_row_mobile_large=”xl_mobile” css=”.vc_custom_1471531929672{padding-right: 75px !important;padding-left: 75px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1472744197008{padding-top: 32px !important;padding-bottom: 64px !important;background-image: url(https://di-uploads-pod4.s3.amazonaws.com/garberchevy/uploads/2016/09/specials.jpg?id=1836) !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1471531782831{padding-top: 32px !important;padding-bottom: 32px !important;}”][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-tags” color=”white” size=”xl” align=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1471274959203{padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”Exclusive Coupons & Specials” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:36px|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:800%20bold%20regular%3A800%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]
