Re: '03 Brake Calipers Sticking
I haven't been here for a while, but landed here while Googling a problem. Granted, I see this is an old post, but...I know your pain!
I have an '04 Sport Trac that is driving me nuts with front brake calipers.
They just won't release on one side. (Driver side).
The opposite one failed at like 40k miles last year, and Ford replaced it.
Then the other failed, and I've been through 4 FORD calipers in less than 6 months because they just won't release all the way. 1 of them even failed to open, NEW and in the box!
And here we are again - one black wheel (dust) and one clean one.
The caliper from last year is still doing fine.
Since then, can't get a good one, and everything related to the brakes is almost new, within the last year. Even the lines that bring fluid to the calipers - both sides. I don't seem to get 60-90 days out of a caliper. Thank God they have warranties.
I'm at my wits end.
I would dearly appreciate any suggestions.
Rotors - resurfaced, both, first time for it. Evenly. Tested.
Pads - new
Fluid lines - new
Fluid reservoir - removed, emptied, cleaned, refilled.
Bled, bled, bled some more
Calipers - both new inside a year. Both from same dealer. Ford brand.
