    Is there something that needs to be done to help the pads move more freely when installing them new?

    Yes

    Yes, they are disk brakes.

Take the calipers out and wire brush the runners that they sit on.. you can also buy some any seize stuff that you "paint" on that is supposed to work well... autozone or canadian tire would have it.

I have a 2004 ford expedition. Am having problems with passenger front brake caliper sticking. Over the past 3 months Ive replaced the caliper, pads (driver and passenger), brake hose (passenger). Drove...


you don't lube the piston only the studs that hold your caliper it have to slide freely on them some times rust, dirt or using the wrong tools for them cause them to drag or jam i hope thats your problem otherwise i recommend to have it checked by a specialist as you may have issues with the antilock valve body or the splitter !

Cant move gear selector. is there a sensor? after changing the brake pads,i pumped up the brakes,tryed to go for a test drive,cant get truck gear handle to move.


Make sure the brake light switch didn't come loose when you were pumping the brakes... that switch also releases the shifter. It should be located up on the brake pedal arm under the dash

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.

Inside brake pads wearing 75 % in less than 5000 miles


Your thinking is correct.The caliphers are floating they have to be able to move freely back and forth on the slide pins.If they do not then the inside pads wear out prematurely.
