2002 crown Vic Pulling brakes

Hello listers,

My 2002 Crown Vics brakes pull to the RIGHT in wet weather. If you use them a few time then the work well till they get really wet again.

I have replaced the left caliper and all the front pads.

Ideas?

Thanks
John

Is it a slight pull or hard pull? Do you have to press the pedal kind of hard when that happens? How old are the pads?

Try switching the pads to the opposite sides and see if it changes with it.

If that's been done , stick car on rolling road brake tester and see what side is causing brake imbalance .Should be able to locate fault by readings .

Re: 2002 crown Vic Pulling brakes

To state the obvious, one side is gripping harder than the other causing it to pull in that direction. Could be the pads are not the same (material and/or condition) on each side, the calipers are not functioning at the same level on each side, a rotor is warped, ABS is not working properly, or a problem with one of the brake lines/connections causing a reduction in hydraulic pressure on one side. I would start with checking the pads and bleeding the lines.

How hard are you pressing the pedal for this to happen? Is the pull making the steering wheel pull? Light application? It also could be the rear brakes.
