“Jason provided an excellent service , even phoning the evening before to see if he could pick my car up that night, which I was happy for him to do, Jason arrived to collect the car as arranged and went over any issues I had, he took the car away saying he would call me with his findings. I received another call the next morning to inform me what additional work needed doing and the cost on top of the already quoted work and also checking if it was ok to deliver my car back in the early evening. Very happy with the whole experience , communication, punctuality and quality were all 1st class, my car had its MOT, service and MOT repairs all sorted at a very good price. I would highly recommend Jason and Click Mechanic“

“Jim was great. He called beforehand to make sure everything was ok for the visit and to confirm he had collected the parts. A quick chat and we confirmed a plan of action.
Jim explained the work that would be needed at each stage so we could make an informed decision around the options available.

Not all the parts were needed and I was only billed for those used.
Excellent service by Jim“

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.

  • Mechanic will advise if other parts of the braking system need replacing too.
  • Mechanic will bleed the brake system.
