Slides & Noise Clips Replacement Service

What is the Slides & Noise Clips all about?

Brakes use calipers to press the brake pads to the brake rotors until the automobile stops. This is much easier said than done, though. For this to happen without adverse effects, slides and clips are necessary to hold the caliper steady. The slides and clips are small spring metal pieces that hold the brake pads vertical in the caliper and make movement easier. Without clips and slides, the brake pads can bind in the brake caliper and cause problems with bringing your vehicle to a stop.

Keep in mind:

  • A lot goes into stopping your car when it’s in motion. If your brakes aren’t working correctly—even if they just make a funny noise—have it looked at.
  • Just because the slides and clips need replacing doesn’t necessarily mean the calipers do.

Our recommendation:

Whenever your brakes are inspected, the caliper slides and clips should be looked at also. Even the smallest problems—which issues with the slides and clips may fall under—can be potentially dangerous. If you experience any challenges with trying to stop your car, have one of our expert mechanics inspect and replace the caliper slides and clips if necessary.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Slides & Noise Clips?

  • Difficulty bringing your car to a halt.
  • Smell smoke or see it coming out from under your wheel well.
  • Hear a scraping noise when you try to stop.

How important is this service?

If your brake pads aren’t moving easily in the caliper, it can cause difficulty bringing your vehicle to a stop, especially under panic braking. Excessive wear is possible if the pads will not release fully as well. Have the brake caliper slides and clips replaced as soon as possible.
