Question about 1995 Mercury Mystique
Have changed rotors and calipers for rear brakes but right rear drags does this car have floating axle.
Posted by Anonymous on
Usually the flex line goes first then ends up locking on the caliper. Change the flex line on that caliper then replied that wheel. If it has abs you will need to have the key on to open the valve to be able to bleed it

Sounds like air in the brake lines. I would bleed the brake system thouroughly using a bleeder cup. Start at left rear, then right rear, then left front, then right front. right front is the shortest line, therefore you usually see the symptoms there first. Could have air in the proportioning valve which is difficult to get out with just a quick bleed. You can make a bleeder cup at home using a small mason jar and a 2 foot length of rubber tubing. Poke 2 holes side by side in the top of mason jar about the same diameter as your tubing. Tubing should be of the size that will fit snugly onto your bleeder valve nipple. Run tube down 1 hole into jar. Mark jar on outside in 1 inch graduations from bottom to top. Fill jar with 2 inches of clean brake fluid. Put your tube into the jar so as to be submersed in brake fluid, attach other end to bleeder nipple. Open bleeder nipple and pump brakes until you get an inch more fluid in the jar. That should be enough to have suficiently bled the line. Refill master cylinder, install cap and repeat for each wheel in order previously stated. If you still have drag after doing this, I would lean toward the proportioning valve. I assume you cleaned all the rust and debris from the brake bracket where the pads ride on it and used a small amount of white lithium grease on the bracket to facilitate the floating brake pad system?
Let me know how you do....Mike

Press the parking brake lever with slip-joint pliers to relieve the tension on the brake cable. Grip the cable's end with locking pliers and disconnect it from the parking brake lever
