    The caliper is probably in good order. But rust is taking hold.Jack up the car,remove the wheel, and take off the two bolts holding onto the caliper. You can hang the caliper on the strut spring. DO NOT LET IT HANG BY THE BRAKE HOSE. Now remove the small brake pad sliders from the caliper mount and using a file remove all the rust that is underneath. In older cars when rust forms under the pad sliders it jams up the calipers making the brakes over heat. If you take off two more bolts you can clean the rust off the caliper mount at your work bench. Assembly is in reverse order and do not neglect to clean the rust off the caliper mount on the other wheel also.

I have a 2002 mitsubishi Lancer manual oz rally edition and I'm having trouble switching gears, like it's hard. Any idea what this might be?


If the shifter moves freely when engine is off. Its possible that the clutch is not fully dis-engaging causing stiff gear changes. May be time for a clutch

I have replaced two times right front caliper on Mitsubishi lancer 2002 because they did not releasing properly discs . I still have the same problem , specially when I'm driving locally and I'm using...


I would have a quick inspection of the brake lines, to see for a squished or bent line. If lines look good then it rilly only leaves the ABS unit (big square aloy block with lots of hoses coming out of it) unless the master brake cylinder is separated.

Right front caliper is not releasing on micubishi lancer 2002


You have most likely not gotten the "ears" on one of the brake pads on the correct side of the guides. This causes the brake pad to lock the calliper and prevent it from releasing. This will result in extremely heavy wear and damage on the brake pads and disc. Do NOT drive the car further before item
is rectified.

2002 Lancer is running fine is turning over 70,000 miles soon should timing belt be replaced?


Timing belts should be changes every 50-70K miles. Even though its running fine, the belt can get worn out, have splits, or become brittle and could snap at any time. I highly recommended having it changed to prevent damage that could occur if it does break.
