Your car has both rotors and calipers because they work with each other. I think your question is does your car have rotors and drum brakes? It all depends on the model you have some have both rotors and drums (rotors on the front and drum on the back). Some have rotors on both front and back. I'll try to explain this the best that i can for you to look for yourself and see. If you have been using the car youll be able to look thru the the holes in your rims and see if there is a shiny smooth surface. That is the surface your brake pads make contact with. The "caliper" is what pushes the brake pads to the surface. If you have drum brakes (which will be on the back) you will not see any smooth shiny surface because the brakes work hidden inside of the drum. If this is not enough you can email me at mrbigshow_370 at yahoo.com and i will try to explain or send you photos so you can better understand.

Not knowing exact model, you probably have Disk brakes on front & drums on the rear. Possibility of disk on rear too. As far as rotors & calipers go, which I believe you are referring to, you will for sure have both on the front disk brakes. Rotors are the part that turn with the wheel, & calipers are the part that hold the brake pads & squeeze (for lack of better words) the rotor for stopping.

Shakey steering wheel while braking


Hi, the problem is most likely due to warped rotors on your front disc brakes. I had a similar problem on my 1999 Grand Am. If that's the case you should replace the rotors and check the calibers and pads to ensure they are not in bad shape. If the rotors are unevenly wearing they should be replaced and if your caliber pistons or boot looks damaged then the calibers may need replacing. Ensure that the front pads have the proper lubricant where they slide in the caliber otherwise they can bind and cause your rotors to warp again because of excessive heat. Hope that helps you out.

Replace rear rotors 2004 jeep cherokee


Heres what you will need to do this type of job. First you will need a rachet and metric sockets with an extention if available. Also you will need somthing to press the caliber piston back into place a special tool or some kind of press would work . A plastic auto hammer to knock the rotors loose, somtimes they can be difficult to remove. Pliers would be needed as well as a screw driver to help mount the caliber or pads back into place. One thing to keep in mind is that if you indeed are replacing the rear rotors, it is recommended to get new pads as well. This is for the reason that old pads will cause break sqealing since they are not surfaced perfectly straight for the new rotor. Step one will be to get the caliber of the vehicle so if there is a medal clip on one of the studs just use the pliers to rip it off. Then use the rachet to remove two bolts holding the caliber. After you remove those bolts, there should be another two bolts holding the caliber bracket as well, do the same procedure in removing those. IMPORTANT do not let the caliber hang by the brake cable, put it on a stand or in a location where it is not free fall hanging. Now you should just have the rotor left, try pulling on it to see if it breaks loose, if not then use your plastic hammer to bang in the back of the rotor and knock it loose that way. If I remember correclty those rear rotors will have brake shoes underneath. Do not wory about those they are there for your emergency brakes. Now put the new rotor on and make sure it is securley installed on the wheel hub. Install you'r bracket first, then begine to install your caliber back into place. NOTE the caliber may not install to easy onto the rotor for the reason that you will need to compress the piston inside with either the special tool or some type of press. If you compress it and you hear brake fluid dripping down, it is nothing to worry about, its just the fluid being pushed back by pressure. Install the caliber and pads the same way as removal paying close attention to the other side if your not sure of how the originally were installed. When all this is finished look up brake bleading on YOUTUBE.com to accurately bleed your brakes and remove any air inside that may cause spongy or moister inside your brake lines.

Hope this Helps!

Problem with break caliber and pedal and rotor 99 corolla


you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master cylinder....in other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help
