Question

Which of the following is NOT a component of the fixed caliper?

  • Pads
  • Shims
  • Discs
  • Slide Pins
Answer

Slide Pins are not considered a component of the fixed caliper.

The fixed caliper is made up of several components including pads, shims, and discs, but not slide pins. Caliper mountings involve following proper safety procedures when dealing with hazardous materials like asbestos dust. This may include using protective equipment such as gloves and respirators, as well as specific cleaning procedures to minimize the risk of exposure to the hazardous dust. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and use caution when using any cleaning solvent. Technicians may need to clean the caliper mountings and component further using equipment for dealing with asbestos or hazardous dust.
