What are Brake Calipers?

Brakes are vital, full stop. And calipers are a critical part of any car that uses disc brakes. Think of a caliper as a brake pad’s big brother. When you depress the brake pedal, fluid flows from the master brake cylinder to the brake caliper. That’s to create extra pressure for the braking, because sorry hotshot, even after leg day your muscles aren’t strong enough to stop your car.  That brake fluid helps the caliper apply pressure to the brake pad, which clamps around the rotor, slowing down the wheels in the process. And just like that, your car slows down.

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.

Leaky fluids

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.
