Brake calipers work in conjunction with the brake pads and rotors to slow down and stop the vehicle. The calipers hold the brake pads in place and use hydraulic pressure to squeeze them against the rotor, creating friction that slows down or stops the wheels from turning. If the calipers fail or malfunction, the brakes may not work correctly, causing unsafe driving conditions. Regular brake caliper inspections and services ensure your brakes are working correctly and safely. It’s essential to have any brake issues diagnosed and repaired promptly to prevent costly repairs or accidents.
When brake calipers are damaged or worn-out, several indicators may occur. One of the most common signs is a noticeable decrease in braking performance, such as longer stopping distances or difficulty in stopping the vehicle. You may also notice unusual noises such as squeaking or grinding when you apply the brakes. The brake pedal may feel spongy or soft, indicating a problem with the caliper’s hydraulic system. Another sign of worn-out or damaged calipers is uneven brake pad wear or a visual inspection revealing leaking brake fluid. Any of these indicators may be a sign of brake caliper issues, and it’s crucial to have them inspected and serviced immediately to ensure safe driving conditions. Our team can perform cleaning and lubricating procedures to help boost performance and longevity of the brake calipers. We can also check for signs of rust and the condition of the slide pins to ensure they are in good working order.
