Spotlight on Brake Calipers
Your brakes can save your life, as well as the lives of other drivers and passengers in their cars. Brake service is of utmost importance if you notice any changes in the way your brakes perform. Strange noises such as squealing or grinding can indicate that a component in your brake system needs the attention of an experienced mechanic. One of the main components of your braking system is the calipers, which clamp over the rotors. Brake calipers have metal plates, also known as brake pads, on the inside, which is what allows you to slow your car down or stop suddenly. If there is any fluid on the calipers, discs, or rotors, it may be a sign that there is a problem within the caliper housing. Each element of the braking system must be in good shape in order for your brakes to work properly, which is why routine maintenance and replacement of certain parts is necessary.
