Every component of your vehicle’s braking system, from the brake pedal to the brake pads, plays an essential role in your safety when you’re behind the wheel. If even one part of your brake system isn’t working, it can increase your risk of a collision. An essential part of your braking system is the brake calipers. But what are they, and how do you know if yours need to be repaired? The brake repair specialists at Campus Automotive in Blacksburg, Virginia, can explain more.
The brake calipers are found on each of your wheels. These crucial components squeeze the brake pads against the rotors, slowing down your wheels and making your vehicle come to a stop. When you press your foot down on the brake pedal, it creates hydraulic pressure on the caliper’s pistons to press the pads against the brake rotors.
Brake calipers typically last for up to 75,000 miles or between seven and 10 years. After that, your calipers may begin to experience severe wear and tear. If this is the case with your car, call the brake service specialists at Campus Automotive right away.
