What is a Brake Caliper, and What Does It Do? A brake caliper is a crucial component of a car's braking system.
It houses the brake pads and is responsible for squeezing them against the brake disc (rotor) when you apply the brakes. This action creates friction, which slows down and eventually stops the car. Why Are Brake Calipers Important for Vehicle Safety?Brake calipers play a pivotal role in ensuring safe driving. They are responsible for converting hydraulic pressure into mechanical force, which is essential for reliable and efficient braking. Properly functioning brake calipers are vital for stopping your car safely, especially in emergencies.
How Do Brake Calipers Work? Brake calipers work on the principle of hydraulic pressure.
When you press the brake pedal, brake fluid is forced into the caliper, causing it to squeeze the brake pads against the disc (rotor). This friction generates the stopping force that slows down your car. What Are the Signs of a Faulty Brake Caliper?
Common signs of a faulty brake caliper include squeaking or grinding noises during braking, uneven braking performance, a spongy brake pedal, or a noticeable pull to one side when braking. If you experience any of these symptoms, it's essential to inspect or replace the brake calipers promptly. Can I Replace a Single Brake Caliper, or Should I Replace Both? Ideally, it's recommended to replace both brake calipers on the same axle to maintain balanced braking performance. However, if only one is damaged or malfunctioning, you can replace it individually, ensuring it matches the existing caliper on the same axle.
What Are the Different Types of Brake Calipers Available for Passenger Cars? There are primarily two types of brake calipers: fixed and floating.
Fixed calipers have pistons on both sides and provide better braking performance, while floating calipers have pistons on one side and are generally more cost-effective. How Do I Choose the Right Brake Caliper for My Car? To choose the right brake caliper, start by using the vehicle Compatability table in the listing.
