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.
