Mercedes Brake Calipers Parts
Mercedes, a worldwide auto industry and market leader, has always remained ahead of the times for creative designs and superior crafted automobiles. Mercedes continues to produce some of the most admired vehicles and parts in the auto market. Mercedes brake parts, as well as the accompanying caliper parts are an indispensable piece of every Mercedes vehicle. Calipers are also a vital piece of the overall safety in every disc brake system. Specifically, the pistons enlarge from hydraulic pressure when the brake pedal is pushed. The pistons then grasp the brake pads, which come into contact with the rotor, slowing the Mercedes down. When a caliper becomes damaged, there will be some clear-cut ways in order to detect this. Start by driving your Mercedes up to about 35 mph and then push the brakes down solidly. Figure out if your Mercedes is pulling to the right or the left side when you push on the brakes. If this is the case, it is a great indicator to see if the caliper piston is sticking and only one side of the brakes are operating correctly. Next, drive your Mercedes for about 10 minutes, testing the brakes frequently. When completed, go to a preplanned spot where you can take it apart for additional analysis. FCP Euro holds a large inventory for Mercedes brake parts and calipers, including all Mercedes needed products.

To further diagnose any caliper issues, raise the axle of your Mercedes containing the caliper that may be faulty. Use a jack to raise it up, but make sure to put it safely onto the jack stands. Then, take off the wheel and nuts using a lug wrench, as well as detach the two caliper guide bolts. Use a ratchet and a socket for this task. You can now take off the caliper from the rotor with a pry bar. Sometimes calipers can have pads attached to them, but others may leave them behind in the caliper anchor. Examine the caliper for any evident signs of fluid leakage, which will be quite obvious, upon first glance. You should then check on the piston region, the bleeder screw, and the brake hose connection. Also, look over the rubber protection boot around the pistons. Any tearing or ripping in the boot will not automatically mean the caliper is faulty, but it will eventually affect the pistons. Because you are already looking in the proper areas, it is a great idea to check on the brake hose for any noticeable signs of cracking or tearing in the rubber, as well.
