Your vehicle's brake system features rear and front brake calipers. Ensuring you can come to a complete and safe stop is part of the job of the brake calipers. Brake calipers are parts that fit over your vehicle's rotors like clamps. They work in conjunction with your braking system by pressing against the rotors. These auto parts work together and produce the friction needed to stop your wheels from rotating. Each brake caliper of your vehicle fits over the brake rotor and clamps firmly onto it. Also, each of these components houses two metal plates often referred to as brake pads, which are high friction surfaces that help to decelerate the wheels and eventually stop the vehicle. There are two main types of brake calipers - sliding (floating) calipers and fixed calipers. The former slide in and out of the rotor, whereas the latter are fixed in place. With increased use, brake calipers normally wear out. Is your Mazda pulling to one side or making metallic rubbing noises when you press on the brake pedal? This is a cause for concern, and so is the uneven wear of brake pads. If the brake fluid is leaking, it's also likely that the calipers are damaged, and you need replacements.
