New brake rotors overheat
Hi Steve. As you said you did replace the rotors and pads. Did you have problem before replacing the rotors or just to renew was? The reason I am asking is just to see whether the problem was there and before. Now, if you had the same problem before renewing and after renew you still have the problem,just go back on your car, jag it up putting it on stands,turn the wheels an see which one is tight on turning. If is just one, open the bleeder to release the pressured fluid and turn the wheel,if is turning free,just get in the car and apply brakes
after turn the wheel and if you do have stiffness,you have a faulty brake hose inside the flow hole. Just renew the faulty brake hose. If you do not face any hose failure, renew the brakes Master cylinder.
Break caliper pushed forward
You are talking about the piston being pushed out? #1. Put a piece of wood in the caliper and push the brake pedal again.. remove the piston all the way. clean the caliper bore, replace the seal(caliper rebuild kit usually really cheap) carefully reinstall the piston.. sounds like it is either "cocked and stuck or the caliper has a ring of rust at the top of the bore. either way clean and reinstall the piston. possibilty #2. Take a "C" Clamp and force the piston back in.. if you do this take an old pad and put it between the piston and clamp to protect the poston.
Mini cooper 2008 windscreen wash jets
Mine did the same thing. I took a sewing needle and cleaned out the hole in the sprayers, which had calcium buildup or something else. You can also redirect the spray nozzles at the same time. Hope this helps.
