Frequently asked questions about Audi brake caliper repair & services

Read our answers to questions about brake caliper repair costs, symptoms and more.

What does a brake caliper replacement on my Audi involve?

  • 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.

What are the symptoms of a bad Audi brake caliper?

Some of the symptoms of a failing brake caliper are:
* When the car pulls to the right or left under braking.
* From an MOT failure or advisory note regarding brake imbalance.
* If your brake pedal begins to gradually get softer (less resistance)
* If the fluid level in your brake fluid reservoir drops.
* You notice brake fluid on the rims of your wheels.
* If a mechanic advises you of damage to the predictive boot during a brake pad change.

How long does it take to replace a caliper on my Audi?

On average a brake caliper replacement will usually take 1 hours, but can take anywhere from under 1 hour to 2 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a range of factors. For example, your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should you replace Audi brake calipers?

Whilst there is no set lifespan, the most common cause of caliper issues is due to the rubber boot that protects the piston splitting or getting a cut in it from road debris or simply age. Once this occurs, water and grit will etch into the pistons surface and cause pitting, which can lead to the piston getting stuck or the rubber seal that prevents the hydraulic fluid leaking out becoming worn.

What happens when a caliper goes bad on my Audi?

If you experience any of the symptoms listed, you must act immediately as the braking system is vital to your safety. Therefore it is imperative to get this checked by a technician so they can rule out other causes such as unevenly worn brake pads, discs, suspension faults and tyre wear. Only then should the expense of replacing a brake caliper be considered.

How can I extend the lifetime of my Audi brake calipers?

In reality there is not a lot you can do to prevent cuts and ageing of the caliper piston protection boot. However, if you are advised that it has been subject to damage, maybe by a mechanic during a brake pads change for example, then it is sometimes possible to have the boot replaced if there has been little or no water ingress at that point.

What causes Audi brake calipers to break?

Brake calipers may get damaged when a car is driven with brake pads that are worn-out or with warped discs.

It is also quite common for the brake caliper to "stick" or hang and this can happen because:
* Lack of lubrication or build up of debris
* Build up of rust
* Seized piston
* Brake fluid leak
* Abrupt temperature changes

What is the average life of Audi brake calipers?

A brake caliper is a durable brake component that is designed to last as long as the vehicle or up to even 100,000 miles. However, there are several factors that can shorten the lifespan of brake calipers so it's important to get them checked if you suspect any brake problems while driving.
