Re: New rear brake caliper: bites rotor always?
Went back to the guy who installed calipers but he had no idea why the grinding sound. He took out tires, calipers and rotors. Everything came out with very little effort, meaning none of them was sticking. One thing found was one side of emergency brake shoe came loose from the metal backer that glued on. We took out loose resin piece that was inside of rotor where emergency brake is. It didn't seem the backer metal (shoe) has touched rotor at all.
I returned back with nothing fixed. I still have grinding noise and it goes away when I apply brake. Now I don't even know if it is from brake or something else but grinding sound only happened after the new caliper installation.
Rotor is really hot, I can touch front rotor (that we didn't change anything) but rear ones are really hot with only a couple miles of test driving... I still think the caliper is not releasing but why? And as I said, caliper could be removed with little effort.
I am going to have to go to some other place but I don't know what I can expect... Any one has any idea?
Oh, one thing, what happens if air is in the brake fluid line? Would air in the brake line prohibit from the caliper to fully retract?
