Why Do Brake Calipers Need To Be Replaced?
The most common reason a brake caliper needs to be replaced is that a piston becomes stuck or the rubber housing deteriorates.
Caliper Replacement Requires Bleeding The Brakes!
Warning: After new brake calipers are installed the brake lines will need to be bled to eliminate any air which may be trapped in the brake lines. Failing to do so can cause sporadic brake behavior or complete failure which is extremely dangerous to passengers in your vehicle and others on the roadway.
What’s Included With Our Brake Caliper Replacement Service?
If your brake repair service calls for caliper replacement, you are more than likely going to need to replace the brake pads and rotors at this time as well.
Contact us to speak with an ASE Certified mechanic because brake jobs involving caliper replacement require a much higher level of knowledge and experience when compared to replacing pads and rotors.
How to tell if you need brake caliper replacement
Brake calipers are an essential part of your vehicle’s braking system. They are responsible for pressurizing the brake pads against the rotors, which in turn slows down or stops your car. Over time, brake calipers can become worn out and start to fail. If you notice any of the following signs, it’s time to bring your car in for brake repair or replacement:
Here are some common signs that brake calipers may need to be replaced:
- Squeaking or squealing noise: A high-pitched squeaking or squealing noise when you apply the brakes can be a sign that the brake calipers are not functioning properly. This can be caused by worn or damaged caliper hardware or stuck caliper pistons.
- Uneven brake pad wear: If the brake pads are wearing unevenly, it could be a sign that the calipers are not applying even pressure to the pads. This can be caused by stuck or seized caliper pistons or damaged caliper hardware.
- Sticking brake: If you notice that one or more of the brakes are sticking or not releasing fully, it could be a sign of a faulty caliper. This can cause the brake to drag, which can lead to excessive heat buildup and premature wear of the brake components.
- Leaking brake fluid: If you notice brake fluid leaking from the caliper, it’s a sign that there’s a problem with the caliper piston or seal. This can cause a loss of brake pressure and compromise the effectiveness of the braking system.
- Warning light: Some cars have a brake warning light on the dashboard that will illuminate if there’s a problem with the brake system. If this light comes on, it’s important to have the brakes checked as soon as possible.
If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have your braking system inspected by a professional mechanic. Worn or damaged brake calipers can compromise your safety and the safety of others on the road, so it’s best to address the issue as soon as possible.
