MAKE SURE THAT THE CALIPER WAS PROPERLY BLED AFTER INSTALLATION. YOU NEED TWO PEOPLE TO DO THIS. ONE TO PUMP THE BRAKES AND ONE TO OPEN THE BLEEDER VALVE.

Front end pulls to right when applying brakes


Hi, it looks like the side that it pulls to is working as the brake is coming on and the other side is not it could be a seized caliper. Needs to be looked at.

I have a 2001 Sebring , brand new rear pads,rotars and calipers. Passenger side is sticking but has a lot of pad left. Driver side seems to work but half the pad is gone. Any idea why this is?


Seems like all the brake action is on the driver's side. If passenger side is sticking, it probably won't move in or out effectively. I would pull it off and check it, maybe you got it crooked when mounting it. Or just possibly a bad caliper. Also examine the brake hose on the passenger side for bulges, or anything wrong with it.

1997 ford thunderbird: steering pulls to right when brakes applied. Calipers and brake fluid hose at brake is OK.


Defective, damaged, or contaminated brake pads or shoes on one side. Excessive wear of shoe or pad on one side. Defective drum brake or caliper, stuck piston or other damage.

What will cause a 2001 mercury cougar to pull hard to the left? We already changed lower ball joints, caliper, bearing hub assembly, and outer tie rods.What's your problem?


Could be air in system and right side not applying brakes. Also the internal rubber in brake line where solid metal line attaches to can deteriorate and form a blockage for brake fluid to not reach caliper on right side.

2003 gmc envoy pulls to the left when applying the brakes


your right side caliper my be bad. take off both front tires and get some one to apply pressure to the brake pedal and watch to see if the piston on the right side (passenger side) moves and applies pressure to the rotor.

The front end of my 92honda prelude is shaking and trying to pull hard to the left only when i apply the brakes but when Im not applying the brakes it pulls very little to the right. What would be making...


You need to replace the brake Pads, Turn the Rotors and probably replace the caliper on one of those sides. Either the right side isn't grabbing correctly or the left side is grabbing too much. Test the mater Cylinder for a possible blockage and make sure you bleed both calipers before you start replacing parts.

Have installed new (rebuilt) calipers on '83 El Dorado. Parking brake doesn't work on passenger side. Had to use tool to press piston in far enough for installation on other side (driver) but this...


Your description gives me a suspicion the calipers weren't rebuilt to a very high standard.

The pistons don't turn as they are pushed out but mostly they have to be rotated or screwed and pressed in prior to fitting the pads.

Once fitted and bled ensure the caliper parking brake lever is hard against the backstop and then press the brake pedal hard a few times and the adjustment should be complete after removing any slack or free play from the parking brake cable.
With a new or quality rebuilt caliper a good parking brake should be obtained without needing to shorten the cable so the caliper levers are lifted from the backstops. That is the sort of compromise needed as the internal components become worn.

I just put 2 brand new sets of rotors and pads on my 02 s10 4wd because there is a scrubbing noise on the front passenger side brakes. after replacing them one time the drivers side is fine but when you...


Its possible that the driver side is not clamping well. Sticky caliper piston. Forcing the passenger side to do most of the work. This will result in rapid overheating which will cause the passenger rotor to look bad after a short drive. Does driver side still look new? Do you feel any sideways pulling when braking? What prompted you to look again after changing rotors and pads? Since you first noticed noise on passenger side, indicating excessive wear, I think the problem is the drivers side caliper. You could try working caliper piston out and in a few tmes, but usually you want to replace a problem caliper.

'97 sunfire pulls hard to the right when brakes applied. Changed pads and rotors on front end and bleed brakes but made no difference. Any suggestions?


When you changed the pads did you notice if one side was worn more than the other? The most common cause of pulling when you apply the brakes is a seized caliper. It won't work and the other does all the braking. Your left caliper is likely seized and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Brakes are wearing uneven. driver side brakes are engaging but passenger side is not


Either the caliper is bad or there is air in the line.I would pull the wheel off and have someone pump the breaks and see if the breaks try to move then try bleeding them out before I spent the money on a new caliper.
