From my experience, I would say that adding anti-seize was unnecessary and may have caused your problem. I would redo the same process, using only brake fluid to lubricate the pistons and seals.
I will be happy to further assist you if you need it, good luck.

dot 3-4 fluid draws moisture, over time, it can corrode the caliper from the inside and cause the piston to stick, either replace the caliper or rebuild it, make sure the caliper pad pins aren't bent and they may need some lube.Can also be air in the system. A good brake fluid bleed-flush wouldn't hurt either.

you don't lube the piston only the studs that hold your caliper it have to slide freely on them some times rust, dirt or using the wrong tools for them cause them to drag or jam i hope thats your problem otherwise i recommend to have it checked by a specialist as you may have issues with the antilock valve body or the splitter !

How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


Front brake
Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
brake_pads_rotor.jpg
Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
brake_pad_set.jpg
Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
remove_brake_caliper.jpg
Remove Front Brake Caliper
After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
remove_brake_pads.jpg
Remove Front Brake Pads
Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
brake_rotor.jpg
Remove Brake Rotor
With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
compress_caliper.jpg
Resetting Brake Caliper
To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
new_brake_rotor.jpg
Install Brake Rotor
Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
new_brake_pads.jpg
Installing New Brake Pads
Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
Re-Install front Bake Caliper
Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

I need to rebuild both of my front calipers on my 2000 FLHPI. The pistons are sticking, so I bought the seal kits (rebuild kits). Now, aside from disassembling the calipers, what should I do to free the...


If by "disassembling the calipers" you mean splitting them open, DO NOT do that.
You detach the caliper so that you can remove the pads and get at the piston, but then what you should do is to simply pop the piston out.
That can be done simply by pumping the brake pedal, using air pressure (with a rag to prevent the piston from flying around), or with a grease gun.
Then once the piston is out, you simply wire brush any corrosion off. If the piston is so pitted that it can not be made smooth and will leak, then it should be replaced.
If you wash them out with anything other than brake fluid, then be sure to blow out any residue with compressed air.
Use lots of brake assembly lube, and ensure the new dust seal is water tight. Bleeding the brakes will flush out any remaining dust.

Gallardo door is locked key battery went dead. How do I get cover off of key entry on door?


Oops wrong spot.
For those that cant afford to give their old lambo away when the keyfob dies... Look at the front of the key, theres a little indentation. Use a small flat head screwdriver to pry the two halves apart.
theoverachie.jpg

It should pull apart like this:
theoverachie_0.jpg
You will be working with the part without the key blade. Stick your two thumbs in the channel the key blade folds into and pull the lower half apart.
theoverachie_1.jpg
Replace the battery and reassemble. The car will now need to relearn the key. Remove the plastic key hole cover by lifting the door handle slightly and pulling upwards. Once in the car, stick the key into the ignition and turn the car to on without starting it. Press the unlock button on the key fob. You should be good to go.

Then befor you road test pump the break pedal. Once ya get a look at it, its pretty easy to see what ya need to do. Front and rear ar pretty mush the same.

First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

2006 Malibu Maxx - rotors were out of round.


In order to retract the pistons on the rear calipers you need to use a special tool that will rotate the piston in a clockwise direction.It may be possible to try to use a strong needle nose plier.Apply force against the U shaped slots on the piston and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.Before you reinstall the caliper make sure that the recessed slots are at 12 and 6 "o"clock..the slots align with one or two bumps on the inside pad.
If you are having problems with your calipers rebuilt one are a good option.If only the caliper slide pins are sticking they can be cleaned and lubricated.Pin lubricant sometimes comes with a set of brake pads.Other than that lube may be purchased separately at an automotive supply store.

It could be a loose caliper or a caliper with a sticking piston, causing brake drag. Something could have loosened up, since you say the brake job was recent. Hope this helps and best wishes.

94 buick lesabre rt front brake sticking- rotors-pads & calipers just replaced- puzzled


replace the hydraulic hose also --- the hose can collapse inside and the brake fluid cannot return, (allowing the pressure at the caliper piston to relieve), and your caliper sticks --- it is actually the piston that is stuck.
