Brake Caliper Replacement Service

What is the Brake Caliper all about?

Most cars come with disc brakes in the front, and many models also have disc brakes in the rear. A caliper is part of the disc brake system. When you press the brake pedal, the brake fluid flows from the master cylinder to the calipers. Brake fluid then applies pressure on the piston inside the caliper, pushing the brake pads against the rotors to slow/stop your car. A car can have either 2 or 4 calipers. If the car has rotors on all four tires, then it will have four calipers. If the car has two rotors and two drums, then it will come with two calipers in front. The calipers can become contaminated, rusty, and start to leak brake fluid. Brake calipers absorb a lot of heat generated from the braking system. Over time, this heat can destroy or weaken the seals inside the calipers. Caliper servicing is usually done as part of a brake service job.

Keep in mind:

Work on brake calipers would likely include new brake pads because if the calipers have gone bad, it is very likely that the brake pads are worn out.

How it's done:

  • Remove and replace brake caliper and pads.
  • Inspect brake rotors.
  • Inspect brake line hoses.
  • Replace brake fluid.
  • Re-check brake system for fluid leaks.
  • Bleed the brake system.
  • Torque wheels to factory specifications.
  • Check brake system performance.

Our recommendation:

  • Keep up with the regular brake services as suggested by the manufacturer.
  • If you drive the car with thin brake pads or rotors, it will ruin the calipers.
  • Change the brake fluid on a regular basis (approx. every 30,000 miles).
  • If you notice a clear fluid on the tires or on your driveway and a change in the way the brake pedals feel (softer pedals), it is time to get the brake system inspected.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Brake Caliper?

  • Abnormal squealing noise from brakes.
  • When braking, the car will pull hard left or right.
  • Braking feels soft and spongy (brake pedals are easier to push than usual, going all the way to the floor when stepped on).
  • Brake fluid is leaking (clear fluid on the driveway or on the wheels).

How important is this service?

All services associated with proper function of your brakes are important. In addition to safety issues, ignoring small repairs can quickly lead to more serious (and more expensive) problems.

Ford Transit-350 - Brake Caliper Replacement (Driver Side Rear, Passenger Side Rear) - Winder, Georgia
He came 30 min early to appointment. He fixed the van properly. Your mechanic kept to their price quote even though the mechanic took 1-2 hours longer then expected to complete the job!

Ford F-350 Super Duty - Brake Caliper Replacement (Driver Side Rear, Passenger Side Rear) - Texas City, Texas
This was work done for my Dad. He's 80 and a Heart Patient and he's SUPER anxious about EVERYTHING so imagine his worrying mind about BRAKE failure while taking himself, or my Mom to the Doctor, etc. Billy was SO professional! Kept in touch with me and even moved the appointment forward knowing how much it was stressing my Dad out not having a safe vehicle to drive. What a GREAT GUY and a GREAT Service company. As a small business owner with 20+ employee's who are constantly on the road (Home Health Care) I intend to distribute this information to ALL of them, and to all of my 100 + patient's adult children! This is such a BETTER use of resources and time...way better than going to a repair shop (and all of the hassle that goes along with that) and waiting for the cost, and the time. Billy Trant - Thumbs UP! You're an awesome mechanic and PERSON!

Ford Explorer - Brake Caliper Replacement (Passenger Side Front) - North Hills, California
Lucas was very communicative and thorough. He specifically sat down with me and showed me what was wrong with my car. I also really appreciated that he gave me options and left a lot of the decision-making up to my discretion. I never felt pressured or scared into fixing more than requested, which is different from the majority of mechanics I've encountered. HIGHLY recommend and will request him or at least refer to this site for further work on my vehicle. The work itself on my car had top quality parts/service! Big thanks!

Ford Mustang - Brake Caliper Replacement (Driver Side Rear, Passenger Side Rear) - Clermont, Florida
Julio, what can I say. A true gem and professional that helped me the whole way as I struggled with getting my 2000 Ford Mustang brakes, rotors, and calipers replaced for an affordable price. He was kind, honest, and fast. Being a start-up, YourMechanic is still lacking in their process and procedures, especially when it comes to notifying you to what parts you'll actually need to complete the whole job. Luckily, Julio was able to walk me through all the necessary parts and the job was done with perfection. Couldn't have asked for better service from Julio, and YM customer support hopefully took my verbal feedback to help ensure that YM stays around for decades to come.
