I do believe they are the same but the sure way to find out would be to call autozone and ask them for the part number for a replacement caliper for the 2004 and then ask for the number for the 2002 and compare them. Hope this helps.

2004 ele parking brake not pulling up to m.o.t s type jaguar

i presume you mean the electronic parking brake does not meet the minimum effort for mot test, first check the rear calipers and pads, the caliper sliders seize and/or the pads seize in the caliper frame, check the discs also for bad corrosion, is the park brake warning showing on the dash? if so check the wiring above the rear subframe its prone to chaffing and grounding out, the park brake motors are also troublesome, sounds like a pad/ caliper problem more than likely seized sliders easy job to free off, hope this is helpfull to you.

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.

2001 lincoln ls v6 left rear is squeakin when i

How are the rear brake rotors and calipers. If you do not take them apart twice a year and clean up rust, lube certain parts, the pads will drag. Also if your caliper is from 2001 it may be all rust inside,especially if you do not change/flushing your brake fluid every two years. I also have a 2004 LS and 45 years experience with this and never a problem with brakes on any veh from 1962 thru 2009. It is all about neglect and lack of knowledge ,not to be hurtfull here.
