Question about 2003 Ford Expedition
I've had my drivers side front brake caliper replaced twice in 6 months due to it locking up. The last time we had the rotors turned as well and replaced all brake pads and shoes at the same time. This was two weeks ago and I have the same familiar vibration in the steering upon braking again. Frustrated!! I don't want to keep spending money out and not fixing the problem. What are the other possiblities?
Also seem to be having a lot of the same problems as most people on this forum with radio failure, automatic window failure, door ajar problems, rear air compressor failure (complete with ticking noise), Ugh. I' just frustrated and need answers please.
Were the lines to the brakes completely flushed out? If not have that done. Contaminates in the fluid id common and will bind the pistons in the brake calipers causing premature wear to the brake pads
If the pistons are sticking they will need to be removed and the inner piston wall cleaned thoroughly. Rebuilt calipers are much easier to replace if rebuilding your own is not an option you want to take
