  • Brake Puck Discs

    Just wondering what these things do. They loosely sit in the caliper puck with some material surrounded by steel. They aren't blown out in the parts fiche either. Should they have a loose fit? Kinda a pain in the ass when you are reinstalling the loaded caliper and they shake loose.

    keep them in place, probably designed to reduce heat transfer from rotor to pads to brake fluid. many here won't understand your question cuz their pucks went missing years ago.

      I think they're supposed to snap in place or have a tight fit. Like yours, the pucks/caps on mine became loose and I finally just ditched them and haven't notice any difference in brake performance.
