Brake Calipers Q&A
Q: What are They?
Q: How Many Does a Honda Vehicle Have?
A: it depends on what model it is. Many of them have front calipers only, though some can have both front and rear calipers.
Q: What Do They Do?
A: contact brake rotors using the pads, generating the friction vehicles use to slow down and stop. (Drum brakes do the same thing with brake drums and brake shoes.)
Q: How Do They Work?
A: when you step on the brake pedal, the master brake cylinder activates, pressurizing brake fluid and sending it through brake hoses and lines; this forces the pistons to fasten them to the rotors.
Q: What are the Signs They're Going Bad?
A: there are many, including:
- Warning lights on the dash (for instance, brake or ABS lights)
- Buildup and corrosion around the seals
- Brake fluid leaking onto the wheels and/or into the engine compartment
- Unreliable brake pressure
- Pulling sideways when braking
- Squealing noises
- Continuous grinding
If you see any, do a complete brake caliper inspection and replace any that the results deem necessary. Before you order new ones, though, be sure that they're the genuine article.
Q: Why Buy Genuine OEM Brake Calipers?
A: Honda designs them to fit your model specifically. That assurance, you may not always get from the aftermarket.
