Symptoms of failing Brake Calipers
Pulling to the left, to the left (or the right)
No, you’re not going crazy. Your car might be pulling in one direction when you brake, and it’s not your brain playing tricks on you. It’s one of your calipers not reporting for duty, and throwing the whole system out of order.
Soft brake pedal
You should be well-acquainted with your brake pedal. It can save your life, so make sure it’s one of your closest friends. And when it starts acting funny? Treat it like you would any other friend, and see what’s wrong. If it feels too soft under your foot, you might have a caliper issue.
Ahh, everyone’s favorite car issue, when the pavement in your driveway looks like your sleeping bag after your first night at summer camp. Leaks can be a number of things, including a malfunctioning brake caliper that’s dripping brake fluid.
Uneven brake wear
Playing favorites isn’t nice, with your kids or your brakes. If your calipers aren’t functioning properly, they’ll likely wear out one set of brakes more quickly than the other.
