Brake Caliper Replacement
Mobile Brake Caliper Replacement at your home or office
Vehicles are a necessity of life, but when your car screams its way into the nearest parking spot, it’s time to call a mobile mechanic - a professional that can determine a need for Brake Caliper Replacement at your home or office. They can get the job done while you continue life.
WHAT IS BRAKE CALIPER REPLACEMENT?
When the brake is applied, the brake fluid will flow from the master cylinder to the calipers. This applies pressure on the piston, located inside the caliper, and the pressure pushes the brake pads against the rotors. This will either slow or stop your vehicle. In time these calipers can become worn, causing a malfunction in the brakes, so a brake caliper replacement will be required.
HOW IS BRAKE CALIPER REPLACEMENT DONE?
When Wrench quotes you a price for the repair, our mobile mechanic comes to your home or place of business and will then perform the work at the agreed upon price.
After removing the wheel and the old caliper, a special tool is used to compress the piston fully into the new caliper. Once the brake line is attached to the new caliper and the new brake pads are fitted, they will make sure everything is bolted firmly in place - including tightening the brake hose.
Your mobile mechanic will then bleed the brake lines, put the wheel back on and the brake caliper replacement is complete. And since the mechanic has come to you, you’ve been able to go about your day without being inconvenienced with long wait times at a service department.
Brake calipers come in pairs and should be replaced in pairs.
