The slides on this system are real critcal. A good brake silicone grease is required on the slides to allow the caliper to be pushed back by natural runout. The caliper should be removed and the piston pushed back in to be sure that there has been no hydraulic system contamination and the piston not sticking. Wire wheel/brush the sliding points and lube properly. Let me know how that works and I will help with the rest.

Have a front brake sticking problem have replaced calpers lines and pads and their still sticking in a 1995 buick road master


are you talking about both front brakes sticking.by lines i assume you mean the brake flex hoses.have you checked to make sure that the sliding surfaces are smooth and free of damaged surfaces and the brake pad clips are in the proper places.if so and all this is good that you have done then you could have a master cylinder that is not releasing pressure for the front brakes,or you could have a defective flex hose(if they are not twisted) that is blocking the fluid from releasing the calipers.

Back brakes coming on before front on snow and skidding


the way the car brakes are on todays cars are. the front brakes a supposed to grab a second before back brakes. so I would look to see if fluid is ok! and check out the front brakes, you could have a sticking caliper, thats stuck in and not applying the front brakes properly. have a good day !! also when you check the brakes make sure the caliper slide pins are ok. if not the caliper will hang up. if they are sticking replace caliper pins and grease them up good so caliper slides on them. my 2000 malibu had a similar problem and I found that the pins on caliper were bad, replaced them and all is fine.

My parking brake light stays on and my brakes seem to be sticking as well.1995 Chev.pick-up,I pulled the rear wheels off and found I could still rotate the drum without any sticking or rubbing. Could this...


it sounds like the front brake slides/or pins are sticking i would service front calipers and apply lube where needed.For the brake light you would need to check the brake fluid level sensor turn it counter clockwise 1/4 turn and clean with brake clean if that doesn't work unplug the sensor and if light goes off replace sensor for brake fluid level.Also make sure parking brake is totally released.

Front brake is sticking


This is caused by a faulty caliper or a break line (the rubber line from metal line to caliper..
In majority of cases its the caliper..

On my lincoln 96 the brake are sticking on one side front and back i got new calipers


The first thing to replace is the front rubber (flex) line that goes to the caliper from the steel brake line. They can go bad on the inside and not allow the caliper to retract when you take your foot off the brakes. If the rear brake is sticking it isn't retracting properly also, but try the front fix first and see what happens.

Front brakes sticking mercedes ml320 1998


Your car is still under covered for 3 year warranty, is it not? Anyway, the cylinders inside the caliper needs to be cleaned out. At this time, the brake fluid needs to be flushed out. This is not a wear and tear and the dealer should not charge you as in case of brake pads...Cheers.
