Halting Your Car Effectively

By: Anthony Fontanelle

Your car's braking system consists of numerous parts, each helping the entire mechanism to make the car stop at the right moment. One of the most dangerous malfunctions that can happen to your car is brake failure. Unlike the common problem of overheating, brakes that are not working can put the lives of your vehicle's occupants at risk. A considerable number of road accidents are caused by defective brakes. That it why it is important that all braking components like the Honda brake caliper are in top condition.

Honda brake calipers are pre-installed to all Honda vehicles together with the equally vital elements in the braking system. They are U-shaped clamps that are powered hydraulically to grip the brake rotors and eventually stop the car. The sides of a Honda brake caliper are equipped with one or two pistons. On top of the brake caliper pistons are the brake pads while the rotor freely spins in the channel of the U. Whenever you step on the brake pedal, high-pressure fluid is directed from the master cylinder to the brake caliper. The pressure of the fluid causes the piston or pistons to be pushed inward. In effect, the brake pads squeeze the brake rotor; this action creates a friction that stops the car.

The is designed to endure the heat and pressure during the braking process. Although the brake pads are prone to wearing out due to its direct contact with the rotor, the brake caliper also deteriorates in time because of the hydraulic brake fluid. It is, then, advised to regularly change the brake fluid so that rust build-up on the brake calipers is avoided. Regular inspection of the brake calipers is also recommended as not all drivers can easily detect the damage. An immediate replacement is the best idea to keep you and your passengers safe. Our site offers various Honda brake calipers, along with other vital car parts and accessories, made to suit various Honda vehicles.
