“Dale was excellent!!! - he knows what needs to be done and has carried out his task smoothly. He has a very friendly attitude and even if you see him for the first time you will not even realize that you don’t know him in the past.

Garage in London, 14 years of experience

“Couldn't fault the team that carried out the work for my Audi. They collected it on time as promised and clearly explained the process. When the car was in the workshop, they called before carrying out any additional work and were transparent. Again, the car was returned on time and it's been a week since repairs occurred and the car seems to be all good! Would recommend them for sure :)“

“Boby and Nina make a great team. I liked being able to see the work being done and actually see the problems they had found first hand, rather than just leave it at a garage and have no idea what had happened apart from reading a report . Also Nina clearly explained the repair to me as well. I have driven the car downthe M4 to Newbury and back and the problem looks cured.“

Want to learn more about Brake Caliper repairs?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a Brake Caliper do?

The brake caliper is part of each wheel's disc brake unit, it packs the brake pad and clutches the brake disc. Under braking, the brake caliper transfers the pressure applied on the brake pedal to the brake pads which clasp the brake discs. In turn causing friction and slowing the car down.

Modern cars usually have a disc brake unit at each wheel, so four brake calipers in total. Older cars sometimes have only two disc brake units, the other two wheels are fitted with drum brakes.

How do you know there is something wrong with a Brake Caliper?

  • When the brake caliper displays rust.
  • When there is a squeaking noise coming from a corner of the car (at the wheels).
  • When the car pulls to the right or left under braking.
  • When brake fluid leaks from the caliper (noticeable by patches of fluid under the car).
  • When brake fluid is leaking (clear fluid on the driveway or on the wheels).

When should you consider replacing a Brake Caliper?

Due to wear and tear a brake caliper's condition can deteriorate, they might start to rust or leak brake fluid. This is an example of when you ought to have your brake calipers replaced. Remember, servicing the brake calipers is key to ensure a prolonged working life for the whole brake system.

Always service the brakes according to the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. In cases that the calipers are damaged or have worn out prematurely it is important you have the calipers inspected and replaced as soon as possible.

What happens during a Brake Caliper replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brakes and establish if there is a problem with one or several of the brake calipers.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake caliper.
  • Mechanic will advise if other parts of the braking system need replacing too.
  • Mechanic will bleed the brake system.
  • Mechanic will top up the brake fluid.
  • Mechanic will test drive the car and inspect the brake system again.
  • Mechanic will make adjustments if necessary.
