ATE Electronic Brake Calipers provide a simple solution for servicing and repairing electronically controlled parking brake systems. Nathan Killeen, Product Manager, ATE Brake Systems, noted that when a caliper in an electric parking brake is faulty, it’s usually necessary to replace both caliper and the electronic motor.

The motor tries to compensate for the damaged caliper and eventually fails. These new caliper units are delivered pre-assembled with the electronic parking brake motor, making it easier for technicians to confidently complete the repair correctly, the first time.

Continental offers 10 ATE Electronic Brake Caliper part numbers with exclusive application coverage for Audi A3, A3 Sport-back e-tron, A3 Quattro, RS3, TT Quattro, TTS Quattro, and TT RS Quattro, and Volkswagen e-Golf, Golf R, and Jetta.
