Need to know minimum pad thickness on 2010 Malibu

A: Hi there. The GM certified service manual s...

Hi there. The GM certified service manual states to replace the brake pads when the friction material has come within .76mm of the mounting surface. The mounting surface is the metal part of the brake pad that the friction material is bonded to. A general rule of thumb for safety is to replace worn brake pads at about 2mm so you don't run the risk of completely depleting the friction material and causing metal on metal contact. In that case, you will have to replace the brake rotors as well. If you would like to have the brake system inspected, or if you would move forward with a brake pad replacement, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to have this taken care of.
