has anyone had actually to change a defective caliper yet?, have 52K on mine 06 sel, and turns out that caliper is bad (see mine dba rotor and green ingredient pads post). Just had actually meineke look in ~ brake and also put new pads on all four and also had same trouble with stuck piston. Assumed they resolved it again, and went highway speeds because that 40 miles and when got earlier to them for 3rd time today, left rear rotor to be 329 degrees and also the various other 3 to be 140 degrees. I understand it can"t be the paint job that was excellent prior to brand-new rotors and also pads being placed on as brakes functioned fine. Didn"t notic trouble until surroundings of rotors and pads by a different meineke shop. No going come invest in paint this caliper, though as don"t have time to waste nor money to rental a automobile for a day.

Alright bro here"s what friend do, get in Meineke and also b1tch choose hell, telling them the they didn"t press the brake piston in the caliper all the method and bolted the caliper on with it seized in place. Call them that they space paying because that your new left rear rotor, collection of new rear brake pads due to the fact that they room no constructed to stand up to that type of heat. Tell lock normal warm is what the various other three were and also that it"s not your responsibily castle didn"t spin the wheel if bolted tight to the car to insure the brakes weren"t seized, however that it became your problem. I"ve had this take place to me on mine T-bird as soon as I had actually it, and also i painted the calipers and also anchors top top it. They have the same format twist and press in piston in the brake caliper. Friend couldn"t rotate the wheel through it bolted up, but if you took the wheel off, you could turn the rotor. The was due to the fact that the piston wasn"t in all the means and to be binding. Friend might try taking the wheel off very first bro, and seeing if that"s what it is, and if so put there asses in the wringer and make it hurt. And also if not:raise vehicle, eliminate lr wheel (5 19mm bolts), pinch rubber brake heat 1 customs away from wherein it originates from the key metal line. Eliminate (2) one of two people 12 or 13mm brake caliper bolts, pry in between caliper and also brake anchor to remove pads ( be cautious not come ruin any kind of thin steel guides top top the underside middle of the caliper. Her pads will be sitting in the brake anchor still v the caliper off, if they fall out once you take it the caliper off, placed them ago making certain your retainers room on the political parties of the pads wherein they sit in the brake anchor. Notification the 2 slot on the caliper piston, the tab the earlier of the inner brake pad will fit right into this, friend may have to line the new caliper piston up with the tab on your pad by transforming it clockwise (NEVER counterclockwise). Eliminate the brake heat from the caliper. The banjo bolt going into the caliper is a 14mm ns believe. Bolt the new caliper up once the old one is off the line and swap the heat to the brand-new caliper girlfriend have placed back top top the anchor. Make sure to re-use the copper washers that room on both political parties of the "block" the the banjo bolt goes through on the caliper finish of the brake line. As soon as tight, crack the bleeder open 1 complete turn, eliminate your brake line pinching maker (rag covering vise-grips,hose pliers,whatever), then walk take the cap off her brake fluid reservoir and also let it heaviness bleed for 5 min, making sure to not let her brake reservoir run out the fluid. Close the bleeder, and also re-install the wheel. BTW , her cool paint the caliper, simply do it v the pistons propelled in and also with the slider pins and face that the caliper piston recorded off.On a side note, now that I have typed all this crap, I just now observed that you post this July 1st. You are probably currently fixed by now. S*(&^T!!!!Oh well, probably someone will have to put a behind caliper top top there fusion someday and also you have the right to send castle a link to this thread. L8R.
