Left caliper locking up


Jack it up and remove the wheel. Push the brake and release it. The calipers should release. If they don't, open the bleeder. If the caliper releases as soon as you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose. If the caliper doesn't release when you open the bleeder, replace the caliper.

Steering wheel shakes when brakes are applied lightly


Sounds like a warped break rotor. Needs breaks.

325i brakes, inboard pad worn to zero no wearing on outboard pad


If the pads are not wearing equally, u have a caliper problem. What is happening is the caliper isn't completely releasing when u take your foot off the brake (it's dragging). When u see this, u should either rebuild the caliper, or buy and install a new or rebuilt unit. Whenever replacing pads or shoes, flush out the brake lines. Contaminated brake fluid is the usual reason for caliper failure, resulting in premature brake wear. Also clean up the caliper points of contact and use special brake grease to lube calipers.

I cant get the new back brake pad on my 98 jeep grand cherokee


If the caliper is damaged it will not allow the piston to be retracted enough to put the pad in, use a caliper compression tool, available at most parts stores to compress it, otherwise the caliper may need to be replaced.
