5 tips on how to prevent brake calipers from seizing
- Replace the brake fluid in good time.
A high moisture content in the brake fluid results in corrosion of the pistons.
- Regularly check that the dust boots are in good condition.
When they are damaged, dirt gets on the pistons.
- Use the brake fluid recommended by the car manufacturer.
With an excessively viscous fluid, the pistons return to their primary position slowly.
- Lubricate the guide pins every six months.
This will allow the moving parts of the assembly to move freely along their working path.
Important! Use a special high temperature grease.
- Clean the brake caliper.
Remove dirt using brake cleaner and a wire brush.
