The braking system in a vehicle is the most important safety feature and needs to be in top condition at all times. This system is made up of many different parts, which include brake calliper screws, sleeve sets, gasket sets and calliper springs. Ensuring that these parts are in perfect working order to maintain proper braking in the car is paramount. Many road accidents occur due to old, broken or inferior parts being fitted and the car’s braking system being compromised. During the annual service of the vehicle, ask the mechanic that is attending to your car to check the entire braking system, including the brake calliper parts, to ensure they are all in perfect working order.
The braking system in modern vehicles is mostly ABS braking, which utilises callipers that open and close to bring the vehicle to a stop without skidding. This is why brake calliper parts need to be in proper working condition to ensure the safety of the occupants. The brake callipers are usually controlled by an on board computer that feeds them information relating to the driving and braking conditions. If the brake calliper parts are worn, this information from the on board computer will not be received by the braking system correctly and this is when accidents can occur.
