What types of brake calipers are used for Volkswagen Golf cars?

The components have a cast iron or aluminium housing and one or more pistons, and are mounted on the steering knuckle. The pistons press the brake pads against the disc when braking. Cars of this make are equipped with single-piston floating type parts. This means that they can move horizontally with respect to the disc in the process of braking.

The diameter of the piston of the components in these cars is 38–54 mm. This parameter depends on the brake system type, FS3 or FN3, and the disc size.

How to lubricate the brake caliper guide pins on cars of this make and what kind of lubricant to choose?

It is recommended to lubricate them with a special grease every 6 months to avoid premature wear of moving parts of the system. The product is applied on clean guide pins and under the piston boot. Recommendations for choosing the right lubricant can be found in the vehicle’s technical documentation.

Common requirements for this type of products:

  • high heat resistance;
  • resistance to moisture and harsh environment;
  • no reaction with plastic and rubber elements of the assembly.

Warning! Never use products for back surfaces of brake pads instead of lubricants for guide pins and vice versa. Due to different chemical composition they can damage parts they are not designed for.

How to tell if a brake caliper of Volkswagen Golf is broken?

You can detect a failure of the mechanism yourself by the following symptoms:

  • leakage of working fluid;
  • specific rattling of the brake pads during braking;
  • deviation of the car from the driver’s intended path;
  • resistance or pulsation of the brake pedal when it is pressed.

More accurate diagnostics can be performed by service station specialists.

How can a malfunction of this part affect the operation of a car of this make?

All elements of the brake system have a direct impact on the road safety. At the first signs of breakdown of the component, visit a car service station immediately to have it repaired or replaced. If you continue driving your car, this will result in deformation of the brake disc and destruction of the brake pads, which can lead to failure of the system and cause a road accident.

Are brake calipers installed on the rear axle of Volkswagen Golf?

Yes, they are, if the rear axle is equipped with disc brake mechanisms. In this case, single-piston floating components of the same kind as those installed on the front axle are used.

In which cases can the components be repaired on these cars?

A brake caliper can be repaired only if its housing is intact. In this case you can install new pistons, seals, and dust boots instead of worn ones. However, if the housing of the component has chips, scratches, or corrosion spots, you should replace the entire unit. It is advisable to entrust this procedure to specialists of a car service station.
