are used in disc braking systems, the role of the brake calliper is to apply the pressure needed for the brake pads to grip the spinning metal brake disc and slow or stop the car. Brake calipers hydraulically operate the brake pads to create the friction in a disc brake system. They come in various shapes and sizes and with different numbers of pistons but all share the same function of transferring the hydraulic pressure generated by the master cylinder to a mechanical force applied to the brake pads.Porsche Brake Calipers can corrode or rust over time or due to excessive braking and atmospheric conditions. Frequent on-off braking can also generate a lot of heat, which will further reduce the lifespan of the brake calliper and other related parts. Old and worn brakes can seize up, which is highly dangerous on the road and a reason for MOT failure.

A brake caliper is a simple yet very important component of your disc braking system. Essentially, it’s the part that squeezes your brake pads against the surface of the rotor, creating friction that slows your car down. Your brakes may use floating calipers that move with the wheels, or fixed calipers that stay where they are.
In either case, worn-out calipers can be a real danger to your ability to stop safely. Fortunately, they’re usually very sturdy and in most cases only need to be replaced every seven to ten years. However, heavy braking and minor accidents may put additional wear and tear on your calipers, meaning they need to be replaced sooner.
