Question:

is the parking brake built into the caliper?

is the parking brake built into the caliper?

Answer:

There are many vehicles that the parking brake is built into the caliper and there are a lot that have a separate drum brake system inside the rotor that is the parking brake only. If you were at a parts store or garage and the mechanic or parts guy told you that your vehicle has a separate parking brake i would trust them. Since you did not bother to list the make and model vehicle you are talking about it is impossible to tell you for sure. Hope I have been helpful.
It is possible, but unlikely. Most vehicles that have rear disc brakes, use a small drum-and -shoe arrangement inside the rotor because the drum and shoe brake holds easier and tighter than the caliper.
The E-brake is built into the caliper Only on cars with 4 wheel disc brakes. most cars have disc up front and drum brakes on the rear. Like all others, we need MAKE_MODEL_YEAR to answer completely
