While many auto repairs focus on getting your car to start and run smoothly, brakes are arguably the most critical part of a well-functioning car and brake calipers may be the single most important component of your braking system.
To understand how brake calipers work, think back to your first ten-speed bike. Remember when you would squeeze the brakes on the handle bars and the brakes would then squeeze your tires? Well, car braking systems work in a similar manner. When you step on the brake, it releases fluid from the master cylinder, which applies pressure to the brake caliper. The caliper forces the pads or disks against the rotor. Though brake pads and brake discs have different structures, they are both composed of high-friction services that quickly slow the rotor.
