If one side is working and the other side is not, then the caliper is sticking on other side. examine caliper, if it cant be fixed it needs replaced. (this is for front brakes)

Either the caliper is bad or there is air in the line.I would pull the wheel off and have someone pump the breaks and see if the breaks try to move then try bleeding them out before I spent the money on a new caliper.

I replaced both axles , but when I brake it pulls to the driver side ( only when I brake)


Likely suspects include:
unevenly worn brake pads
unevenly worn brake discs or drums
air in brake lines
uneven tire wear
wheels out of alignment

Unless you can troubleshoot effectively and perform the needed repairs, I would take the vehicle in for service. It could end up saving you lots of time and money in unneeded parts and labor.

Brake pad wear uneven


Hi, it looks like you have to get your steering tracking checked and also the brake cylinder on the nearside sounds as if its seized or not working properly.

Just replaced rotor and caliper on passenger side and it works fine but the driver side piston in the caliper is sticking. Also would like to know if I need to bleed both sides even though only 1 side was...


yes you need to bleed both sides starting with the one farthest from the master cylinder and you should try and clean all of the parts with a wire brush that the caliper slides on so that it dont get hung up you can also put a very light coat of grease on these parts to ease opperation of calipers most people who do brakes dont ever clean these parts and thats why their brakes either wear unevenly or dont work properly

Passenger side front brakes locking up


There are a number of problems that can cause that. It could be a bad caliper which is either hanging up or not returning correctly. It could be a bad proportioning valve or ABS motor. It doesn't have to be the passenger caliper that is bad. If the driver side isn't moving then all the brake pressure will go into the passenger side. Check your pads for excessive wear also. Metal on metal contact will cause that or a heat cracked pad could be causing uneven pressure. Check your rotors for glazing as well. If the pads don't grab until high pressure is applied then the brake could lock up. Pads rotors and calipers should cost less than two hundred dollars and if you replace all of them then you shouldn't have to worry about them for another twenty thousand miles or so. Take out the ABS fuse and drive it first and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then it's not the ABS motor. To me, it sounds like a caliper hanging up. Good luck.

Uneven brake pad wear how do i fix it?


Unless one of your calipers is sticking or not engaging fully then there should be no reason for uneven wear unless you have a defective pad.

There will be uneven wear from the front to the back however. About 60% of the stopping power is provided by the front brakes and 40% from the rear , so your front brakes will wear faster than your rear brakes.

Spongy brakes


So long as the brake booster is working, test it by turning on the engine, press the brake pedal all the way down, then shut off engine keeping your foot on the brake pedal, if the pedal comes up slightly pushing against your foot then the booster IS working.

Did you BLEED the brakes??????

CRV has knocking sound coming from rear passenger side


inspect the braking system for warped or uneven rotor surface, as this may cause this noise and uneven pad wear. CV joints also could cause this if the boots are torn, have insufficient grease, are damaged,or have worn bearings. Hopefully this helps

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee uneven brake wear.


All brakes wear unevenly, no matter the make or model. I have been fixing cars for a job for 50 years and that is a lot of experience. Front brakes are the worst for uneven wear.

Rear brake pads junk rotors junk front pads full,uneven,low miles


emergency brake cable may not have been adjusted properly or emergency brake may have been partially engaged without brake light indicating such. Check brake release handle, if it makes no noise as to indicate realease, then it would have to be the e brake adjustment or frozen brake cylanders that when brakes are applied the pressure presses the shoes against the drums but does not release pressure, could be bad cylanders but not likely on both sides at the same time.
