Should be under warranty if it is under 36K. That is unless you wore out the pads so far as to pop the piston out.

Lacking brake fluid front driver's side


You mean leaking? It should be easy to see where it is leaking. Often it is the rubber hose attaching the steel tube from the car frame to the brake caliper on the wheel.
If you need to see exactly where the fluid is leaking out, just put a little fluid into the master cylinder reservoir, and look at the caliper on the wheel while someone presses the brake pedal. You should be able to see if the leak is from the hose, or the brake caliper.

The hose can be replaced for just a few dollars, but it is a job for someone experienced in mechanic work. Once the new hose is on (or the new or reconditioned caliper if that was leaking), the brakes must be bled, all four of them.

2006 Hyundai Tucson 4wd 2.0L experiencing brake fluid not flowing through the left front wheel line, brakes locked up


if it is locked up on the front left side only , it sounds like the caliper is stuck , remove caliper and see if you can squeeze it in with a large c clamp .. may be hard to remove if it is stuck on caliper . replace with rebuilt if it is locked up then rebleed

Replacing caliper on 2002 dodge neon


The first thing is to make sure the caliper piston is all the way in, the caliper then slides over the brake pads and bolts on, make sure you have the correct caliper on the right side, the way to know this is when caliper is on the little bleeder screw should be on the top, if it is on the bottom then wrong caliper, try the other one,

After caliper is on you will then need to bleed the brake system,
This all depends on what happened, if the brake fluid did not all leak out and caliper was just bad then before removing brake hose off old caliper pinch rubber brake line with a pair of needle nose grips or there is a line crip tool that crips hose to avoid fluid from leaking out. this makes bleeding easier , other wise you will need to make sure fluid is full and start at the right rear wheel bleeding and move to left rear then right frt and last left front, you will need to keep an eye on the level of brake fluid and add as need to keep it from going empty,
you will need some one to pump and hold brake while you bleed them, pump pedal three times and hold down while you open bleeder screw, this is to be done to every wheel about four to five time to make sure all air is out . good day. note if pedal feels low bleed again wont hurt anything just a little more fluid lost.

My brakes will not get hard. The pedal goes to the floor. I just changed rear caliper and rotor on the drivers side.


DId you bleed the system after you changed the caliper? If the Master cylinder lost it's fluid while you were changing the caliper, then there is air in the system and you need to bleed the entire system. start with the REAR RIGHT, then the REAR LEFT and then the FRONT RIGHT and last the FRONT LEFT. make sure the master cylinder NEVER runs low on fluid and DO NOT re-use any fluid that you get out of the calipers.

I have a 1999m dodge dakota pu 6cyl and both front calipers donot retract after applied


hi, sometimes rust seizes the operation of calipers, and the caliper PISTONS seizes solid. rectification is to replace BOTH CALIPERS ALWAYS. because if the left caliper works, but, the right do'nt then it will throw your vehicle into trafic or vice versa. you will need to take off the brake fluid pipe,but, if you use a BRAKE PIPE CLAMP and do one side first before undoing the caliper. the bleeding of the brake system is minimal it do'nt leak out so much. gerry

I have replaced the front brakes and right front 98 ford tarus.


typically if you pump the brakes and it gets harder by each pump the master cylinder is good.Check all calipers for leaks,and rubber hoses..still no signs of leaks then open the bleeder screws on both front calipers and let them drip for about 15 minutes,and keeping the resivoir full of fluid..tighten the bleeders and pump them up..hopefully they work and all it was is a little air in them still.

Brake fluid is leaking out the front left tire!


This is most likely a busted or separated line that is connected to the brake housing(on the front tire assembly). inspect the line for a tight fit. replace the line and coupler if found to be defective.

In most severe cases, the caliber may be faulty.

Can't seem to bleed brakes


as long as it is foamy it indicates you have air trapped inside that one caliper make sure that the bleeder valve is closing all the way chances are you are sucking air back into the caliper through the bleeder or you have a leaking brake hose or even the caliper ccould be leaking, basicaly look for fluid leaks
