The brake caliper used in disc brake systems is a cast metal housing that contains one or more pistons. When you push on the brake pedal, you create hydraulic pressure in the master cylinder that forces the piston in the caliper outward against the brake pads, and applies force to the brake pads. The brake pads then clamp tightly onto the brake rotor, slowing your car.
Most cars have floating calipers and thus the replacement procedure will be as follows:
No. Should a sticking brake caliper cause severe pulling of the vehicle to one side, perhaps even with the brakes not applied, have the vehicle inspected and repaired as soon as possible. If a sticking caliper is causing extreme heat at a wheel position, that can cause overheating of the wheel bearing grease, which is in very close proximity to the caliper and brake rotor. This might cause wheel bearing failure earlier than normal.
