The caliper is the thingy thats attached to the car and doesn't spin, that squeezes the rotor, which is attached to the wheel, and does spin. It is that squeezing causes friction and slows the wheel down.

: What does the caliper do? what are the repurcussions of a lose caliper?

: : Could be a lose caliper. Get them checked asap.
