Can I just replace brake pads and not rotors?

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

Genesis Brake Fluid

Where does brake fluid come into the equation? The brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is responsible for moving the components of your Genesis brake system. Fresh brake fluid is something few people think about, even though it can dramatically affect braking performance. Brake fluid should be changed normally. Consult your Genesis maintenance manual for information on careful mileage intervals.For any brake related questions or concerns, reach out to our Genesis experts at Courtesy Genesis of Tampa. You can even schedule your appointment online.

What is involved in a Brake System Inspection? Checking Genesis Brake Parts & Brake Systems

At Courtesy Genesis of Tampa, we offer a multi-point inspection with every service visit that includes inspecting your Genesis brakes, brake pads, rotors, operation, belts, hoses and filters, among other items, not just your brake system. Our mechanics will also look at the following when inspecting your brakes:

  • Rotors / Brake Drums - determining if resurfacing or replacement is needed
  • Brake Fluid - Checking brake fluid levels, color and signs of and brake fluid leaks
  • Brake Operation & Parts - such as Brake Pad Thickness & hardware for wear and tear
  • Brake hoses - problems with the hoses, like cracking or clogs are classic and need common checking as they can wear over time
  • Cylinders - check wheel cylinders & brake master cylinder for function

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

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

  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically makes contact with your brake rotor and applies pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's exceedingly accessible to keep Genesis brake pads joyful by replacing them as the undergo quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your Genesis maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Genesis rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Genesis brake pedals to function the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Genesis braking system together so it can function correctly.
  • 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 Courtesy Genesis find the big type of brake rotors for your Genesis
  • Brake Hoses carry brake fluid from the brake line to your Genesis brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be inspected naturally for cracks and added symptoms of deterioration. Check your Genesis maintenance schedule for more information on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • 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 Genesis.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road at not lacking times.

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 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.

How much do new brake pads cost?

Genesis brake pads can cost anywhere between $150 per axle and $450 per axle depending on the type of brake pad desired. In some rare cases, they can be even more if the manufacturer requires a specific type of brake pad to be ordered for your Genesis.
