Seized brake caliper: why it happens and how to prevent it

 5 tips on how to prevent brake calipers from seizing 
  1. Replace the brake fluid in good time.
    A high moisture content in the brake fluid results in corrosion of the pistons.

  2. Regularly check that the dust boots are in good condition.
    When they are damaged, dirt gets on the pistons.

  3. Use the brake fluid recommended by the car manufacturer.
    With an excessively viscous fluid, the pistons return to their primary position slowly.

  4. 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.

  5. Clean the brake caliper.
    Remove dirt using brake cleaner and a wire brush.
