This hose located at left front behind the brake disk, when the repair man fix your break who didn’t put right, when he put in was twisted.

  1. Do you know how to put a pat on you disk?
  2. Do you have tools to fix your brake?

If you know and you have the tools, that you can try, and I am willing to help.

My husband changed front brake pads and now brake fluid leaks drivers side front caliper bolt. Sometimes smokes

If your hubby only changed the pads and nothing else it is likely one of 2 things

- the rubber hose got twisted or jerked and is now partly split (they do so when getting old)

- the piston seals in the caliper are now leaking (when changing pads the piston has to be forced right back in the caliper and sometimes old seals cannot cope with this)

Inspect the hose closely and have the caliper overhauled with a seal and boot kit. Also have the brake fluid flushed and renewed.

Brake pedal almost goes floor

The washer there should be a plain copper washer. Check that when you tighten the hose up that it is not twisted up and working loose .

1984 ford ranger 4x4 2.8l is pulling hard to left and front left wheel is smoking and locking up

Dear Smoking And Locking.......
It sure sounds to me like you are having a brake issue on the lf of your vehicle..Obviously your lf brake assembly is not releasing.You could have a seized caliper, a restricted lf brake hose, a restricted brake line, or pad material that is unsafe, it's time to get those brakes inspected ASAP!!!! Brake repairs on that year of vehicle are fairly simple for the first timer....if you need any more help just get back to me ...THX HOPE I COULD HELP!!

We just replaced the front brakes and calipers on our 1994 Ford Explorer. The brakes grab when the car is turned off. When the car is started you have to push the brakes all the way to the floor to brake....

The Front Right is a problem. Maybe the hose is bad (plugged up) . You really need to not have ANY leak, and when opening the bleeder, if no fluid comes out, thats a problem.

Steering wheel wobble between 5-30 mph. and again at over 50mph

possibly bad brake hose or twisted/kinked causing pull. wobble may be bad/worn axle shaft on right side.some right axles are 2 or3 piece design.carrier support bolts maybe missing but more likely joint is worn. look for boots that have split or cracked&leaked grease.

Replacing front calipers

It is usually easier to disconnect the flexible brake hoses where they join up to the solid ones first then you can remove them from the caliper end without getting them twisted.
