Honda Brake Caliper Service

Brake Caliper Service at Serra Honda of Champaign

You may be familiar with the rotors and brake pads on your Honda and the role they play in keeping your car under control as you drive around Champaign and Urbana. Are you also familiar with the calipers and how they’re a part of the braking system on your Honda? If your calipers aren’t in good condition, your Honda’s braking suffers, and you don’t have the level of control that you’re used to. At Serra Honda of Champaign, we offer brake caliper service to keep your car stopping in time.

Signs Your Brake Calipers Need Service

Calipers can fail or seize, reducing their ability to slow your car over a distance. It’s recommended to get the calipers serviced every 2 years or 24,000 miles, depending on which comes first. Here’s a look at the signs that your calipers are in need of repair:

  • Uneven brake pad wear
  • High-pitched metallic noises
  • Pulling to one side when braking or driving
  • Leaking brake fluid on the ground/inside the tire rims
  • Clunking noise

How the Brake Calipers on Your Honda Work

The brake calipers are a type of clamp that holds your brake pads on the edge of the brake rotors. The caliper is engaged when you press the brake pedal, causing the calipers to push the brake pads onto the rotor. In turn, the brake pads drag on the rotor and slow down the wheels so you can come to a stop or adjust your speed.

What’s Included in a Honda Brake Caliper Service

Brake caliper service consists of a technician checking your calipers for function and free movement of the moving parts. The technician also checks the slide pins for alignment and the boots that hold the slide pins as well. A caliper has parts that include a bleeder screw, a dust boot to protect the parts, a piston and piston seal, the brake pads, and anti-rattle clips for quiet operation.

Rust is the enemy of cars in Champaign, and calipers are not immune to this issue. Brake caliper service focuses on cleaning off rust and other debris from the calipers, then lubricating the parts to keep them in good working order and resist further corrosion. You may need to have the calipers replaced if the technician is unable to service them in a satisfactory manner.
