replace both calipers and bleed system. remove wheel, unbolt brake flex hose where it mounts to the caliper,clamping hose to keep from losing brake fluid, unbolt caliper from caliper mounting bracket. and remove caliper. re-install in reverse order bleeding front brakes making sure master cylinder doesn`t run out of brake fluid.

There are several problems. Your caliper could be stuck and that is a problem. You probably have a rubber brake hose that is clogged up internally and restricting the flow of fluid, a second problem.
The internal rubber hose can form flaps which close off the flow of fluid. You only have pressure in 1 direction so it is easier to have a stuck caliper because the fluid will trap in the caliper and refuse to return to the Master cylinder.
But this must really be blocked or the safety valve has shut off the diagonal lockout for the ABS. For safety when fluid pressure is lost, a valve shifts and tries to keep a front and a rear brake diagonally supplied with fluid.
What you need to try before giving up on the current project is bleed your brakes starting from the longest rear line and work your way forward with the last line being the shortest.
You may discover that you now have fluid bleeding from the problem caliper. If so, part of the problem was the safety valve killed the fluid flow. You still have a bad rubber line, and possibly a stuck caliper, but now you may have fluid flow.
If I were you, I would buy a rubber brake line and change it before bleeding the system. Then you can see if the caliper is working or not. Rubber lines are cheap compared to most parts.
By bleeding the lines as I recommend, you stand a chance of centering the safety valve and solving part of your problems. If a rear line diagonal to the problem front caliper is also dry, then the safety valve was tripped.
With the rubber brake line removed, you should be able to compress the problem caliper with ease; if not, it is stuck and should be replaced.
At this point, I should mention the ABS box. Pressure coming from the box can be measured as well as Master cylinder pressure going to the box. Hydraulic gauges would be necessary. It would be the final explanation to your problems should the easier solutions fail. Testing price versus component price should be considered.
You will restore fluid flow and be able to test your stuck caliper using what I gave you.

E 250 brakes get stuck? I recently had probelm with my front brakes since thye get stuck sometimes. I replaced teh calipers but the problem continue. How do i fixed the problem


did you grease the slide pins on caliper when putting them on ! sometimes the front brake hose collapses on inside, not letting fluid out of caliper to back it off from rotor. try replacing the brake caliper hoses first ! good-day !

The back brake are staying on when diveing the car and there is a bad smell coming out of the brakes


does the car have disc brakes or standard drum brakes !! if its disc brakes in the back. usually a stuck brake caliper will cause this. if it is stuck bad and can not get cup loose from caliper, replace caliper is best fix. and the smell from the back is probably the brake pads burning up. if the caliper sticks, then the pads will still be in contact with brake rotor.

Emergency brake sticking.....i think. Mazda B4000 pickup


Are you sure it is the emergency brakes?Or is it a caliper stuck,because it is bad,or the caliper brake hose is stopped up?Jack the wheels up,one at a time,and try to see if they will turn by hand.This will tell you if it is front,or rear.If it is the emergency brake,then the cable from the front,to the bake,is most likely the problem,it is rusted ,and frayed,and stuck,you will have to disconnect it at the rear,from the brakes.If this helps,let us know,If it is the calipers,in the front,the wheels will not turn by hand.Brake loose the caliper bleed screw,and if the caliper turns the wheel loose,then the brake hose is bad,if it does not ,then the caliper is bad on that wheel.

Successfully changed front brakes but when i went to change rear brakes the caliper seems to be stuck.what can i do?


your rear brake has most likely a drum in hat style brake.

The caliper is not stuck, you need a special tool to rotate the piston of the brake caliper and depress it down. It is connected to your parking brake, that is why this security measure was taken.

the special tool looks like this :

a ratchet fits in the center hole and depending on the style of piston you have you will need a specific side of this "cube" tool.
you may need to slide the pads out to see the piston.

I hope this helps, Goodluck!

Rear brakes


The caliper is probably stuck, I had to replace one of mine, drivers rear. The piston on the caliper screws back in, so you'll need a caliper press to seat the piston.
