Sticking rear brake

Recommended Posts

Hi, my rear brake passenger side was binding, I changed both rear pads and discs but the same one is still binding ( disc is red hot after driving a short distance). 

When changing the discs the piston in the caliper wound back easily so shouldn't be seized on ???

Any ideas?

Thanks 

Anthony.

Hi, It might be the sliding pins on the caliper holder. Water gets in there and is causing a lot of corrosion.

As above. Sliders are always sticking.

Those pins are ***** , they rust and break when removing them. I had to fit new pins and new support brackets to sort out brake problem

Seems to be a common fault unfortunately.

Always happens on the Prius as well. Get an angle grinder to reduce the diameter a bit, grease well, and fit new concertina rubber boots. Check every year.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
