Our expert insights into brake caliper replacement in Vale of White Horse

Our expert insights into brake caliper replacement in Vale of White Horse

What does a brake caliper do?

A caliper forms part of the disc brake system, which most cars have in their front brakes. The brake caliper houses the brake pads and pistons. Its job is to slow the car's wheels by creating friction with the brake rotors.

What are the signs of a bad brake caliper?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your brake caliper:

  • If your brake pedal feels softer (less resistance when applying the brakes).
  • If your car pulls to one side when braking.
  • If the level in your brake fluid reservoir drops or if you notice a leak. Brake hydraulic fluid is a very pale golden colour, transparent and almost watery.

What happens when we do a brake caliper replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect the brakes and determine if there’s a problem with one or several of the brake calipers. They will also advise if other parts of the braking system need replacing too.
  • They will then replace the brake caliper and other parts of the brake, if necessary.
  • Bleed the brake system and top up the brake fluid.
  • Test drive the car and inspect the brake system again.
  • Make any final, necessary adjustments.

    I was worried at first as it seemed too good to be true, but it wasn't!
