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.

Jeep Liberty V6-3.7L - Brake Caliper Replacement (Driver Side Front) - Charlotte, North Carolina
Kelly did a great job! I loved the tracking app because I knew when to meet him at the car. Since he was an experienced mechanic, he was able to diagnose and showed me an additional problem before he got started. Although he had to get an extra part, he still completed the job in the allotted two hours. He did an outstanding job. I was very pleased with this experience. Kelly is an excellent mechanic, and I will use him again and again.

Jeep Grand Cherokee V6-3.7L - Brake Caliper Replacement (Passenger Side Front) - Houston, Texas
Genaro gave me a heads up that the parts weren't ready but should be available in an hour or so. He showed up and was extremely friendly and gave me some insight on caliper issues. Once he had removed the tire, he showed me clear signs that my caliper was sticking. He worked very quickly and finished the job in no time! Again, super friendly and knowledgeable gentleman. I would recommend him to anyone as well as use him for future services.

Tien Phan did an excellent job on my car. His knowledge found other defects besides the brake pads, and right away got on the phone, found the extra parts we needed and fix the problem. I am very happy with his job, and my car is running smoothly. If all your mechanics are as professional as Tien Phan, than your whole team is one of the best out there. I am happy I found you, and for sure I'll call back again when I'm in need of your service. Thank you,....!
