Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
There are a couple of possibilities. First, the caliper pistons could be rusted and sticking, or, more likely, the points at which the pads contact the brake assembly have rust built up which is restricting the pads from moving away when the brakes are released. My explorer had a problem with the latter condition. The brake pads should slide easily. I simply took a hammer knocked the rust off (with the pads removed of course). If you live in the north like me, salt and rust can be a big problem
