Overheating of the brake pads or vibration in the brakes can indicate an issue with a brake caliper on the vehicle.
Poor pedal feel or stopping performance can also indicate an issue with the Brake Caliper.
Brake calipers may bind or be unable to mechanical retract when the brake pedal is released due to one or more of the following:
- Rusted/ frozen caliper slide pins.
- Missing, damaged or poorly installed rubber sealing boots allowing water to enter the slide area causing rust & corrosion.
- Failed brake caliper piston dust seal.
- Worn square-cut O-ring.
