The Importance of Servicing Brake Calipers in Northeast Ohio

Weber does brake caliper services to keep them running long and strong | North Olmsted, OH

Brake calipers are a part of the brake system in your vehicle. They can be expensive to replace, but with preventative maintenance at Weber Automotive, your brake system will last much longer!

Brake calipers are a critical component of the brake system. They are what squeezes the brake pads out of the rotor and makes the vehicle slow down and stop.

And the biggest enemy of brake calipers is corrosion. Around here, because we're a salt state, the problem is amplified.

Brake Caliper Service at Weber Automotive

So, when we talk about brake servicing or caliper servicing, we are talking brakes, pads, rotors, which are standard brake maintenance services. But at Weber, we service the calipers at the same time. We spend a little bit extra time clean the rust and corrosion off. 

Lubricating Your Vehicle's Brake Calipers

Then we lubricate with the proper grease lubricants for the caliper slides allowing them to move freely. We also highly recommend replacing the fluid because brake fluid hygroscopic meaning they absorb water, which allows them to corrode on the inside as well as on the outside. 

When you regularly do these preventative maintenance services, your calipers and brakes will last a lot longer, so you don't have to replace them all the time.

There is not necessarily a specific lubricant for different car calipers, but there are different lubricants for different type applications. Some work better than others as a caliper lubricant. For example, a great caliper grease is synthetic brake grease, which is more expensive than other choices, but it is worth it in the long run. 


If you have any questions about your vehicles brakes or brake calipers, or you need to schedule a service, contact us today! It is important to keep up on preventative maintenance with your car, especially if you live in Northeast Ohio.

But, did you know that there is a different way to care for your vehicle based on the type of transmission you have? Know the Difference Between Manual and Automatic A manual transmission vehicle is easy to spot. The first thing to look for is that there are three pedals. The clutch is all the way to the left, and then you also have your brake and your gas pedals. An automatic vehicle only has the brake and the gas pedals. Another way to identify if a car is automatic or manual is the gear shifter. A manual has the inscription (pictured right), R, 1,2,3,4,5,6, whereas an automatic will say, PRNDL, for park, reverse, neutral, drive, and low gear.
