Disc brake caliper is a part of the braking system. The componentt provides the force necessary for braking.

Types of disc brake calipers

Floating bracket. Mounted on a low-end car models. The design is simple, but is not effective enough for sports and heavy cars.

Fixed bracket. Using a more complex design increases the efficiency of the element. The cost of this part is higher than in the first case.

Construction of disc brake caliper

The caliper is a construction, pressing the shoe to the brake disc when the pedal is pressed. It is the only moving part of the brake, and in many ways braking performance depends on its work.

When you press the brake pedal, there is pressure in the hydraulic line that drives the caliper pistons, pressing the brake pads against the disc. As a result, the car brakes. Another important function of the caliper is holding pads parallel to the brake disc. Otherwise, the braking effect will be reduced and the wear of pad surface will be uneven.

Tips for operating the disc brake caliper
  • It is recommended to monthly inspect the part and the entire brake system for working fluid leaks. Particular attention should be paid to the junction of the hose with a caliper.
  • You should make a complete replacement of the brake fluid not less than once every 2 years. This is due to its property to absorb moisture that affects drastically the performance of the system parts.
  • When replacing brake pads, inspect them for uneven wear. Uneven wear indicates incorrect operation of the disc brake calipers.

The life of calipers depends on the operating conditions of the vehicle. Smooth braking, timely service and the optimal storage conditions for the car will increase the service life of the braking system.

Faults of disc brake caliper
  • deformation of the part;
  • shift of the caliper;
  • loose fastening;
  • pistons seals fault;
  • rust on the part surface.
Symptoms of disc brake caliper failure
  • car pulls to one side during braking;
  • the pedal is pressed too tight or too soft;
  • brake vibrates when pressed;
  • rear brakes are locked when a large force applied;
  • dragging of brakes.
Causes of disc brake caliper faults
  • untimely or unprofessional service of braking system;
  • wear of parts;
  • the use of low-quality components;
  • system leakage;
  • aggressive driving style;
  • loosening of fasteners.
Repair and replacement of disc brake caliper

In case of minor damage the repair of these elements of brake system can be carried out independently. The reason for sticking and improper operation of calipers can be dirt, foreign objects, rust on the surface and the absence of lubricants. To remove the item, you should:

  • raise the car using a jack or hoist;
  • remove the wheel;
  • unscrew the caliper mounting;
  • remove the part without disconnecting it from the brake fluid channel.

If the problem requires a serious repair, it is recommended to contact the service center.

Replacement of brake calipers is made when serious mechanical damage to the part occurs. In the absence of experience it is not recommended to do it by yourself, so as not to cause damage to the integrity of the system.

faq
Which brake calipers are better: floating or fixed?

The parts of the first type have a simple and compact design. They are installed on budget cars with low-power engines. These products are inexpensive and easy in maintenance. However, they are not suitable for aggressive driving style. Apart from this, their inner brake pad breaks down faster than the outer one as it activates sooner.

The fixed components are installed on heavy SUVs and performance sports cars. They are not prone to quick overheating and have a reliable design. On the other hand, such parts are expensive and their maintenance cost is higher.

How do I remove a brake caliper myself?

To do this job, you will need:

  • a car lifting device;
  • wheel chocks;
  • a set of ring spanners;
  • a flat and Phillips screwdrivers;
  • a piston rewind tool;
  • pliers;
  • brake fluid of the manufacturer’s recommended type;
  • a container with a pipe for waste fluid.

The procedure depends on the vehicle make and the axle where the part is mounted. You can find a detailed instruction in your vehicle’s workshop manual. Generally, it consists of the following steps:

  1. Park the car on an even surface.
  2. Apply the parking brake.
  3. Put wheel chocks under the wheels and loosen their bolts.
  4. Open the bonnet and unscrew the cap of the brake fluid tank.
  5. Raise the car and unscrew the wheel bolts.
  6. Remove the wheel.
  7. Press the pistons into the caliper.
  8. Disconnect the brake hose.
  9. Pull the brake pads away from the disc.
  10. Unscrew the caliper fasteners and remove it from the steering knuckle.

Warning! Never apply the parking brake before removing the components on the rear axle.

What kind of grease is used for brake calipers?

There are two main types of the products used for lubricating the parts: spray and paste. They retain their working properties even at high temperatures and being exposed to moisture and service fluids. Usually, they are based on oil with addition of metal particles. The lubricants can be divided into 3 main types:

  • High-temperature anti-seize. They can be copper, based on molybdenum disulphide, or have a complex formula. They are used for lubricating the guide pins. Never apply these products on the working surfaces of brake pads. This type is represented by the products from Liqui Moly, Mannol, Textar, and other brands.
  • Mineral. They contain bentonite and fatty acids. These products are designed for cars used in urban conditions. This type of lubricants are produced, for instance, by the Teroson brand.
  • Synthetic. These greases contain a set of oxidation inhibitors and wear-preventive additives. They retain their working properties within a wide temperature range: from −40 to +300°С. They are suitable for treatment of all moving parts. You can find them in the product catalogues of Permatex and TRW.
