Passenger side front brake caliper is not releasing.

Passenger side front brake is dragging. I've replaced the rotors and calipers, the brake lines do not appear to be pinched. drivers side brake releases fine, passenger side brake sticks approximately 10 to 15 seconds under no load after release of pedal I have a similar problem with my passenger side caliper not releasing. It is now at the dealership for repair. I will let you know what they find.

Why does 02 Mazda Tribute front passenger brake keep locking up?


Try bleeding some brake fluid on that side. You may have a blockage. Also check if the rotor is in good condition, it may be warped. Good luck!

When i mash brake pedal,the stearing wheel pulls to the right and makes a wining noise in fire wall.as well sitting still, truck running,when i mash the brake pedal and try to turn the stearing it s h


If you replaced the Brake line on the left and it's pulling to the right you may need to replace that brake line as well. As far as sitting still, that sounds like the power steering pump.

Why is the passenger side rear brake on 2000 Silverado not releasing?


You may want to replace the caliper as it is very hard to rebuild them and get the honing correct so the piston doesn't stick.

1988 crown victoria ltd new brakes seizing up


Where to start. . . .
A defective hose would only affect that wheel.
A faulty booster or master cylinder could cause the front wheels to lock and at varied amounts. You may have a metering block or just a junction block for the front lines. It would be mounted near the frame if you have one. Some Ford models from 88 - 92 used a master cylinder with the metering valve built in.
Its possible the front calipers got hot enough with the old pads to damage both front hoses.
I would want to know what it takes to release the pressure on the pads. Do you have to take the hoses loose, or just the bleeder screws on the calipers ? Or are the calipers not sliding back and forth ?

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 !

I just put 2 brand new sets of rotors and pads on my 02 s10 4wd because there is a scrubbing noise on the front passenger side brakes. after replacing them one time the drivers side is fine but when you...


Its possible that the driver side is not clamping well. Sticky caliper piston. Forcing the passenger side to do most of the work. This will result in rapid overheating which will cause the passenger rotor to look bad after a short drive. Does driver side still look new? Do you feel any sideways pulling when braking? What prompted you to look again after changing rotors and pads? Since you first noticed noise on passenger side, indicating excessive wear, I think the problem is the drivers side caliper. You could try working caliper piston out and in a few tmes, but usually you want to replace a problem caliper.

Why would passenger front brake get hot?


it means the brake caliper is hanging up dragging the pads on the rotor causing heat. replace caliper and bleed brakes. also check the flexible hose that connects to that caliper. could be collapsed inside not allowing fluid to return. if in doubt replace it too at the same time with caliper and bleed brakes.
