Brake calipers are used in disc braking systems. Their role is to apply the pressure needed for the brake pads to grip the spinning brake discs and slow or stop the car. They are one of the most important parts in your car as they control the braking systems. Over time calipers can corrode or rust due in no small part to atmospheric conditions and frequent on–off braking. This generates a lot of heat which in turn reduces the lifespan of the of the calipers.
It is important to have the calipers on your car checked regularly. Old and worn calipers can seize up which is very dangerous and will also fail an NCT test.
