Brake Caliper

A Brake Caliper is a component of a disc brake system that houses the brake pads.
Brake calipers are important because they are responsible for applying the necessary pressure to the brake pads, which then create the friction needed to slow down or stop the vehicle.
Brake calipers should be replaced if they become damaged or if they are no longer functioning properly. Signs of a faulty Brake Caliper can include uneven braking, a spongy brake pedal, brake fluid leaking from the brake caliper, or a dragging sensation while driving.
Brake calipers are located on each wheel of the vehicle and are mounted over the brake rotor.
Replacing or repairing a Brake Caliper requires technical knowledge and specialized tools, so it’s best to have a qualified mechanic or technician perform the work.
When the driver applies the brakes, hydraulic pressure is delivered to the caliper, causing it to squeeze the brake pads against the rotor. The resulting friction slows down the vehicle.
