The brake bias valve can cause your symptom.Are the outer part of the brake calipers able to slide in and out freely .Jack it up take a wheel off and get someone to push on the brake pedal while you check for correct movement.Lube the slides so it is easier for calipers to return.a chunck of 4x2 wood is useful if you find them too hard to move by hand

SOURCE: Replacing the front brake caliper on a 1999 Ford Escort

Very simple. Have the proper tools for one. Two...lay cardboard down because the brake dust will make some cruddy marks on the pavement. Three...are replacing the WHOL:E caliper or just replacing/resealing the piston?

Very simple to do, just make sure you block the rear wheels or front (depending on which one you are doing).

Unbolt the two carrier bolts, one upper and one lower. These are commonly hex head or "allen" head fastners. Next, have a small container under the hose you will be disconnecting. I hope you have some help to bleed.....you will need to do so. Get the extra brake fluid ahead of time....that's all you need to do really...and once you unblot and disconnect, the brake caliper should be sitting in your lap!

Is it hex (like an allen screw) or is it a Torx or Torx plus? Torx are serrated.

SOURCE: how take off pins not bolts on caliper 87 Ford Ranger front brake

The pins / wedges just tap out use a scewdriver on the metal edge of the pin just tap it out to the rear and when putting them back in just tap them back in from the front. You will see they are diamond shape and metal cased around rubber very easy to do just take your time.

Stuck calipers


You may have contaminated brake fluid. Try flushing out the brake lines, calipers, and master cylinder by bleeding the heck out of the brakes. Use a NEW can of brake fluid (see why below). This is something overlooked in vehicle maintenance. Whenever doing a brake job, flush the system. I learned the hard way, having calipers drag, not fully releasing, to change them and have it happen again. Finally figured out it was bad fluid which was ruining the calipers. Brake fluid absorbs moisture, which will wreck the system. Just leaving a bottle of fluid with a loose, or missing cap will allow moisture to enter. Brake lines will rust on the inside, and loose particles of rust floating around will cause big problems.

On this 2004 ford f-150 it has brake pads on back and i was told that you had to use a tool to reverse counterclockwise to get brake caliper piston back is this true? and if i do how do i do it?


I picked this up at my local auto parts store. It's a square metal box with little indents on it. A 3/8 ratchet and ext is all you need to use it. Place the proper notches on the piston, then with wrench in loosen mode, ratchet backwards while pushing the piston in. I picked mine up for 10 bucks and it's a cheap one. Better then buying a $90 kit to use.

1976 ford f100 pickup 2wd front brakes are holding after i drive 3 or 4 mile. I put new brake line,master cylinder,and caliper.I done all the bleeding of the lines out and it still holds.


Did you replace master cylinder with correct type?
If disc brakes fitted on front, there should not be a check return valve in front supply port.
Check supply pressure once brakes have started to hold, loosen one of front bleeders to see if any residual line pressure with pedal released.
