Volkswagen Brake Caliper Parts
Volkswagen is the largest vehicle producer in Germany, as well as third in the world. The VW brand has had three vehicle lines in the top 10 best selling list and those vehicles remain at the top of the same list with the same models being produced. The brand ranks third in allocating the most money in the industry to the research and expansion of their new automobiles. They also have an extensive line up with high quality products, and more specifically, with their brake caliper parts and components. Your Volkswagen uses a brake rotor and caliper design that lets your vehicle have more control over the clamping force that the caliper manages. In this process, hydraulic fluid is pushed through steel brake tubing and transitioned into the caliper assembly. The caliper contains a brake pad that is pushed against a rotor disc, which forces friction and decreases the speed of your Volkswagen. As time goes on, the caliper may become faulty or damaged. When this occurs, your caliper will usually seize. You will be able notice of your VW’s caliper has seized by viewing the steering wheel. The wheel will pull at the angle of the seized caliper while you apply the brakes. The more you push down on the brakes, the more your Volkswagen will pull in the direction of the seized caliper. First, unfasten your Volkswagen’s front lug nuts with a tire wrench. Rotate the lugs 1/4 turn counterclockwise and jack up the front at the front end jack point behind your radiator. If you have questions about Volkswagen’s brake caliper parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are close by and waiting to assist you.

Next, position a jack stand beneath each of the front jack stand pinch welds. These are situated beneath the driver and passenger side doors, and then lower your VW onto the stands. Finish taking off the lug nuts and pull the wheel off of your wheel hub. Now, take off the upper and lower bolts on the caliper, which encases part of the rotor. It is a disc secured to the front of your Volkswagen’s wheel hub. Pull your caliper off the brake rotor and put the caliper into your Volkswagen’s coil springs, on the suspension on top of the brakes. Make sure not to harm the rubber brake line linked to the caliper.
