What are the symptoms of a bad 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 in Birmingham?
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.
What happens when a caliper goes bad?
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.
Is a faulty brake caliper an MOT failure?
Yes, faulty brake calipers can lead to an MOT failure. A brake fluid leak from a brake caliper can cause a brake imbalance and can therefore be flagged as an MOT failure or advisory.
Are brake calipers checked during an MOT test?
