How to Replace a Caliper on a Kia Spectra


In a Kia Spectra, like any vehicle, replacing a brake caliper is a risky task. Replacing brake pads is one thing, but changing a caliper is best recommended for a trained mechanic. Should you look to replace a caliper in your Spectra yourself, make sure it’s properly installed and lubricated to prevent sticking. Consult with an expert first.
