Question about 2001 Volvo S40
In July purchased an 01 Volvo S40. The dealership replaced the rear rotors and pads, among other work, to get it sale-able. I had it 2 months when the rear rotors and pads had to be replaced, along with the right rear caliper. I was told the caliper had "frozen". It wore down the pad to metal and damaged the rotor. Can you tell me what would cause the caliper to freeze up. Or is it possible something was done incorrectly when the brakes were replaced?
Usually a bad bearing will cause a bad angle/pressure on the pad which causes caliper to get uneven pressure on piston. causing a freeze. other thing is bad alignment due to bad bushings on the control arms.
