Hello when you disassembled the calipers did you clean the inside piston bores?
could be build up of oxidation in the bores and when the heat builds up the piston expands in the bore causing the piston to lock up.

Most likely the master cylinder bypass valve is stuck you would have to replace the master cylinder to fix this problem. However to test it for this problem apply the brakes with everything together next open the bleed valve without stepping on the brake, does fluid shoot out of the bleed valve? if yes then you master cylinder is defective. If it is cable operated then pull the clevis off the brake and see if the cable moves smoothly and does not stick, if it sticks replace the whole cable assembly. If you still need help just reply to this post and thanks for using fix-ya.

Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

My brakes stick on the front for acouple of seconds after pedal release


you need to have the calibers checks for seal failure....Thier is a seal on the inside of the piston that ends as the pistons press the pads onto the rotors...once this seal gasket fails you will have piston caliber stick,or failure...when you press the brakes,the master cylinder forces the fluid into the caliber behind the pistons and pressure is needed for them to work properly..Hope this helps...

How do you compress rear brake caliber on lacrosse


You cannot just "compress" there rear brake pistons, they have to be de-adjusted because the parking brake must reset them to take up play in that system. A special tool is required to reset the piston.

Caliper piston is sticking. Try pushing it all the way back to the bottom of its travel and then pump the brake pedal slowly and lightly until the piston has reached a point of contact with the pads.

I've not had much success with this method. Usually, if a piston sticks, you're better off to just replace the caliper.

Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

New brake rear discs and pads on a ford mondeo 03 but can not get the caliper pisten to go back enough to fit pads


Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow pressure to escape. Use a large C clamp connecting it to the front of the piston and back of the housing. Turn the screw on the clamp to compress the brake piston then release the clamp. The piston will remain compressed allowing you the fit the housing over the new brake pads.

How do you take the front caliper off a 1990 toyota camry? i undid the 2 bolts on it, now do i just pull or what?


You can sometime just pull it off but sometimes you will need to take a screwdriver and push the brake pad back on the caliber piston side. This will force the piston back and allow you to remove the caliber. After you remove it you will need to compress the caliber piston fully back in order to allow room the install the new pads and get them back on the rotor. Sometimes you can fully compress it while the caliber is still installed. On some vehicles like Honda you need a special tool in order to compress the caliber. Most auto parts stores will lend you the tool if you buy the pads from them. Be sure and loosen the master cylinder fill cap to allow the brake fluid to expand in the master cylinder. Clean everything off with spray brake cleaner before installing the new pads and clean the new pads throughly. Be sure and install pads in pairs. Do both front wheels or both back wheels not just one.
