It pulls to the left when braking


check right front caliper probably frozen in place thats why the left front is pulling . Easy repair jack up right front tire and remove wheel put a jack stand under car after jacking it up for safety. remove caliper and replace also replace pads and left front caliper also when one fails the other is soon behind in failing. Parts should be under $100 for pads and both calipers. Do Not try to rebuild the old ones leave this for the rebuild shops.

I have a 2004 Mazda MPV with some wierd brake issues. I found what appeared to be a bad caliper on front passenger side, and replaced with a new one, yet this same wheel continues to seize up. What is...


If the caliper is seizing and it is not the caliper it is the module that controls how the brake fluid is distributed. I don't have my book in front of me at the moment but when you look under teh hood on teh drivers side you will see a block that has the brake lines coming out of it. That is part of teh ABS system is one is installed and is a master brake control hub if it ABS isn't installed. being that new I would assume it was equipped with ABS. There are a couple of ways you can test if this is teh problem. If I remember correctly the MPV brakes with all 4 brakes, that means you can, as a temp test, switch the lines to see if the caliper problem changes to the different caliper. If it does then you know for a fact it is that unit and not the caliper. Also, something to consider, the caliper that is locking maybe locking because the problem is actually the caliper on the opposite side. If the caliper on the left front is stuck in the open position, on occasion that will cause too much fluid pressure to the right front giving you the impression the problem is the right side and it isn't. This is rare but certainly a possibility. As a general rule you should always replace Calipers in pairs. If you replace the right front you should replace the left front, same with the rear calipers.

Could you tell me the procedure for removeal ands reinstall new braek pads to the rear disks. thank you Dave m


Here are some procedures you can follow to replace the brake pads. 1. Clamp the rubber lines with vacuum line clamps. You can get these at your local auto parts store. 2. Loosen the bleeder screw with the proper size wrench. 3. Loosen and remove the lower caliper to bracket bolt. 4. With the proper tool, and using a pan to catch the fluid, compress the piston in. Tighten the bleeder screw. 5. Side the caliper off and remove the old brake pads. 6. Loosen and remove the caliper mounting bracket(this is the part that the brake pads slide back and forth on). 7. Remove the rotor and have it measured and resurfaced if it is thick enough. Please keep in mind that rotor thickness can have an impact on brake performance as well as a safety issue. If it is too thin, replace them. If you just slap pads on you,could possibly get a squeal or other undesirable noise from the brakes. 8. Clean and lubricate the slide pins and bracket with some caliper grease. 9. Reinstall the rotors. 10. Remount the caliper mounting bracket, and with a torque wrench, tighten the bolts to proper specs. You can get the torque specifications from the parts store as well or a shop that does brake service. 11. Reinstall new brake pads. I usually put the pad with the metal sensor on the inside and on the bottom. 12. Remount the caliper and tighten the bolts to proper specification. 13. Loosen the bleeder screw, and with the help of an assistant, bleed the air from the system, making sure the master cylinder does not go dry. You will know if there is no more air in the system if there are no air bubbles coming from the bleeder screw as well as the firmness of the brake pedal. Make sure you have plenty of brake fluid on hand. There might be a sequence in which you have to bleed the system. You can get that from the parts store or shop as well. The sequence is usually right rear, left rear, right front, left front. 14. Mount the wheels, torque them to proper specification. Also, inflate the tires to proper pressure. Low tire pressure can cause a pulling effect. There you have it and good luck.

When using brakes it dives to the right


your problem is on the left side of the car. your brake caliper is not working properly on the left side. What I would do is replace the brake caliper and the rubber hose that attaches to the caliper. The reason I would replace the hose is because over the years they break down internally and the rubber inside gets soggy and prevents the caliper from releasing properly. Hope this helps leave a comment.

Steering wheel pulls to left when brake is applied


This has to do with the front brake caliper on the left sticking or the front right is not activating. Remove the front wheels and check the caliper for proper movement and pad wear. Try to rotate the front left and note any heavy resistance. Also check all tires for proper pressure.

I keep having problems with left front caliper and rotor, have replaced twice in one year


mcdevito75 here, Believe it or not, your problem may be in the right side fron caliper assembly, right fron brake not operateing correctly and causeing the left brake to do extra work and thus wearing down faster. If your van pulls to the left when you apply the brakes, then the roght brake is not working so well. Beat Bet have your local repair shop examine both front brakes for proper operation.

Front brakes not releasing properly.


Sounds like the caliper needs replaced. Sometimes the pistons lock in the caliper and cause the brakes to drag. When the mechanic changed the brakes before, he pushed the pistons in all the way to accomodate the new brake pads. Now that they are wearing back down, it is getting to the warped spot in the caliper and starting to stick.

Rotor, Caliper and Pads


it is best to replace both sides to prevent a pulling problem when you brake, but you can replace just one side.
