In short, your brake calipers are the housing for your brake pads. When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, it forces brake fluid through the lines which drives a piston in the caliper to force the pads against the rotors. This is how your vehicle slows down because the force from the caliper and pad on the rotor will slow the turning speed of the wheel, essentially slowing your vehicle down. In order for your brakes to function properly, all the parts need to be in good condition to work effectively.
