The brake sliders need to be cleaned and lubed after replacing the brake pads everytime or they can get stuck causing uneven wear on the pads. As far as if it is covered by any warranty is unknown. If your brake replacement is covered then this should be covered as well.

Yes this is a common problem.but its not covered under will have to get it done by local car it actually has to be oiled by car greese oil to make it frequent and smooth to work properly.the cleaning and servicing will not be a costly issue.

Passenger brake stays on?

If only one caliper is sticking,it's probably the caliper.Before you replace it,check the caliper sliders to make sure none of them are siezed.(Compress the brake pads in enough to allow some movement,and see if the caliper slides freely on the bolts).If you find that the caliper doesn't move freely,you can probably take the caliper off,and lube the sliders-maybe you won't have to replace the caliper'if you're lucky.

My right front brake will not release. It has actually burnt my brake pads which i need to replace. What can I do to get the brake to release?

I would replace the rubber brake hoses going
to the calipers,as they may have collapsed inside

Replace the calipers as they may have rusted inside,
and the pistons do not release

Do both side of car the same

What tools are needed to change the brakes

if the front are rotors there are two bolts that need to be taken off first.
remove the caliper, then remove the two caliper bracket bolts and remove the rotor
replace the rotor and reinstall the caliper bracket.
pull the caliper sliders and lube them with brake grease.
reinstall caliper sliders and install new pads and caliper
refasten caliper to bracket and your done

if your doing rear disc brakes same as front
if brakes are drum type you will need rear drum brake tools to release the springs and to refasten
the new brake shoes

Brakes are in good shape but it squeals loudly when stopping like they are bad. What else could it be?

first check that the warning tabs aren't touching the rotors if equiped, if not remove the pads, clean the rotors with an approved brake cleane, sand the pad surface to remove the glaxe then either a shim or noise suppressor coating to the back of the pad reinstall and lube the sliders and pins with sylglide

The parking break does not completely dis enguage. the handle moves freely for about an inch which then i can feel the break line and im assuming thats where its stuck. can you help me?

That is a sign that you need new rear brake pads and/or rotors. Or your caliper holders/sliders are not moving out and back in correctly. Don't adjust the cable on the lever, when you get new rear pads and clean/re-lube your moving brake parts back there the cable will be tight again.

Hot smelly front brake area

Either the sliders on your calipers need lubricated, because of the salt air, or the brake hoses themselves are bad. I'm leaning towards the sliders needing lubed up. Your mechanic is in it for the money! He/she figures if they have to remove the calipers to lube them up, might as well sell you new ones, and make a little more money doing it. Ask someone you trust to lube them up for you. You'll see. I was a mechanic for 20 years, I know how they work. But just to be fair to him/her, I guessss they could of went bad on you, maybe, kinda, sorta.....I wish that everything works out in your favor. Take care and best wishes.

1990 chev 1/2 ton two wheel drive, left front brake sticking, sometimes, now pulls to right when brakes applied. took off left caliber and sprayed with brake cleaner and that seemed to help. but still not...

The Quickest way to fix this is to Replace that Caliper. If you don't have the Dough right Now----Take the Caliper off, and Compress the Cylinder Back into the Caliper While Turning the Bleeder Valve Slowly, When no more Brake fluid Comes out of the Bleeder Valve Tighten Back and Reinstall the Caliper and Pump the Brake Pedal to ReSeat the Cylinder. Sometimes this works on the Chevy Trucks!

Sounds like the caliper mounting bolts are tightened all the way down causing movement when the brakes are applied. Simply remove the tires and check the 2 mounting bolts that mount the caliper to the bracket.
