Inside the caliper, there is a piston is operate, and the caliper then grip the rotor between the internal and external brake pad. It will make your vehicle slow down and cause friction and wear on the brake pad. Gradually the brake pad will become threadbare and therefore need to get it replaced. The area of the rotor in the brake should be even and same thickness in both sides.
