How Do Brake Calipers Work?

Brake Calipers are crucial to stopping your car or van when you press the brake pedal. On a new car the disc braking system can last for at least 10 years or up to 100,000 miles of travelling before needing a caliper replacement. Your brakes could fail if the car is not used and stood for a long period of time in poor weather conditions this will cause the pistons to retract.
Common problems that can occur are Squeal, Shudder, Dust and Fade. These issues will affect the brake pads performance.
The majority of new cars have brake discs on the front wheels and lots of vans use them on all four wheels. Modern cars use hydraulic circuits to operate the brake on each wheel to ensure safety measures are met.
The brake caliper is a housing that contains the brake shoes and pistons. The pistons are typically made of aluminium or chrome-plated steel.
