About Brake Caliper Holders
The Land Rover brake caliper holder is part of the disc brake system. It's a bracket that holds the brake caliper in the correct position. The caliper contains the piston or pistons and brake pads through which the spinning brake disc is slowed and subsequently the vehicle.
A brake caliper holder is located behind each wheel of the vehicle. The bracket is attached by a series of bolts and holds the caliper in position.
Due to the high energy friction forces, heat and stresses involved with the braking system in the area of the discs and wheels, it's of the utmost importance that all components are in good order.
The brake caliper holder is normally a substantial cast metal bracket moulded to snug fit the caliper and should be checked for cracks during brake servicing. When replacing this part with the Land Rover brake caliper holder you can be certain of a part that will be compatible with the make and model of your vehicle.
Land Rover trivia
- When the Pope was visiting the UK in 1984, Land Rover designed him a customised Popemobile to use in the country.
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- Land Rovers and James Bond go hand in hand. The 4x4 Land Rover has been in more Bond films than there have been Bond actors! In Spectre, the Defender SVX was customised with 37-inch tyres and more power.
- The designer Charles S. King worked with Rolls Royce to design jet engines before going on to build the Range Rover. King would go onto building a car around those jet engines that then held the world land speed record, the first turbine-powered vehicle to do so.
- Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
