I second bookworm. Our cars are also pretty problematic with calipers sticking, especially if you get remanned ones from parts stores.Bookworm wrote: ↑Sat Feb 09, 2019 4:15 pmBasically all of the above.
It could be the piston, the piston bellows, the pin bellows (both of them), pin lubrication, and my favorite - the slider clips for the pads grabbing. I had to use a grinder on one pair of pads to make it stop binding on my wife's old car. I've also had to use a wire brush and extra lube on the caliper side, where the clips go.
If the bleeder snapped, you _really_ need to get that swapped out and bled.
And if they stick too long and you still drive it, it can RUIN a nice rim !!! This happened to my Silverado just last month! Haven't attempted to polish the rim yet (bad weather) but it's probably too far gone and will need replaced
ouch. that sucks! hopefully you can polish it.
