What causes brake calipers to go bad?
A leading cause for damaged calipers, however, stems from driving a vehicle on worn-out pads or warped rotors. If the pads fail to insulate the caliper from excessive heat, the piston can be damaged or the heat can be passed through the piston to the brake fluid, which can cause it to degrade.
