Repco have brake calipers and brake caliper kits for the widest range of vehicles on the road

Staying safe on the road means ensuring the braking system of your vehicle is operating effectively. This also means that all brake components are functioning in unison to provide the stopping power needed under any conditions. When it comes to brake calipers these are a critical piece of the braking system and must operate smoothly and effectively when called upon.

Popular Questions Asked

What is a brake caliper?

Similar to the function of traditional cable brakes on a bicycle, a brake caliper comprises 2 brake pads and operates hydraulically via the activation of the brake pedal and the transfer of brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brake caliper piston. The brake caliper piston or pistons then apply force to the brake pads as these contact the brake rotor allowing you to slow down and stop.

Most modern vehicles have disc brakes on the front and rear wheels so have calipers located on all 4 corners. Due to the braking force required, rear wheel calipers are usually smaller than the front wheels and brake calipers can comprise one, two, four or even six caliper pistons to transfer the pressure to the brake pad.

Brake calipers and the brake caliper bracket are built for the life of the vehicle yet the moving parts within the caliper are what wears and needs maintenance or replacement throughout the vehicles life.

How to tell if a brake caliper is faulty

Over time the pistons and seals within the brake caliper can become worn and either leak brake fluid or the pistons can get stuck. When a seized brake caliper occurs you may feel one wheel pull in that direction or hear a squealing or grinding noise based on the condition of the disc brake and brake pad.

This stuck brake caliper will cause accelerated wear on the brake pad and disc brake and this can then turn to metal on metal contact and loss of braking performance if not attended to.

Can you drive with bad brake calipers?

As advised, the malfunction of your brake caliper should not be left undiagnosed or unrepaired for any length of time. Once these components have become faulty they will deteriorate further.

The easiest way to rectify a sticking or leaking brake caliper is with a brake caliper kit which can comprise new seals, parts and in some cases new caliper pistons. Any reputable mechanic or workshop can install these and sometimes for ease of replacing they may install a completely new caliper complete with these consumables.
