VW Brake Caliper Service

Brake Caliper Service in Latham, NY

A brake caliper is a critical component of your Volkswagen’s braking system and houses the brake pads and the pistons. In short, the role of a brake caliper is to slow the car’s wheels by creating friction with the rotors. Think of your brake caliper like a large clam that attaches to the rotor and prevents the wheel from moving when you apply the brakes. When you apply the brake pedal, brake fluid is released which creates pressure on the pistons controlling the caliper which then release the pads against the rotor to slow your Volkswagen. The caliper is connected to the remainder of the braking system through a combination of tubes, hoses, and valves. At Nemer Volkswagen in Latham, NY, each of our friendly and responsible service technicians is factory-trained so they know how to service every model whether you drive a Tiguan, Jetta, Atlas, Passat, or any other Volkswagen model.

When Should Brake Calipers Be Replaced?

Like nearly every part and component on your vehicle, the brake calipers aren’t designed to last forever; however, with proper care and maintenance, they should last for many thousands of miles. For specific information on when you should change your brake calipers, the owner’s manual provided with your Volkswagen will outline the mileage interval that replacement is recommended but remember that these are just guidelines. With time, the intense heat generated by the friction created in the braking system weakens and breaks down the seals inside the calipers. When this happens, the calipers can gather rust or become contaminated and dirty. If you spot any of the following signs, you’ll want to have a brake caliper service at Nemer Volkswagen:

  • Continuous squealing, grinding, or squeaking noise when braking
  • ABS warning light is emitted
  • Your Volkswagen is pulling to one side when braking
  • The brakes have to be pumped or hit multiple times for them to work
  • There is fluid leaking near the wheels or engine compartment

During a brake caliper service appointment, we will perform cleaning and lubricating of the slide pins and every other part to ensure they are working correctly. In addition, if replacement is needed, we only use OEM Volkswagen brake calipers so your car will be treated with the highest quality care.
