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.

  • deformation of the part;
  • shift of the caliper;
  • loose fastening;
  • pistons seals fault;
  • rust on the part surface.

Causes of disc brake caliper faults
  • untimely or unprofessional service of braking system;
  • wear of parts;

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.
