Tip & How-To about Ford Crown Victoria
If your brakes tend to wear out prematurely or wear unevenly there is a simple solution. All brake calipers are mounted to a brake caliper bracket. Most folks will replace the brake pads and the rotors and assume thats the whole process. Yes this will get you back on the road but for how long ? There are two pins on each brake caliper bracket that glide in and out when you apply the brakes. If these pins are rusty or dry the brakes will not float evenly. If they rust in place then you have a serious problem and have to heat and tug them out to clean them. Always remove these pins and clean and lubricate them with brake service grease every time you service your brakes. If you take them to a mechanic to be serviced, tell them before they start to be sure to clean and lubricate the caliper pins. This simple tip will save you hundreds of dollars and hours of your time. Thank you for finding your solutions at Fixya.com. Come see us for all your difficult problems.
