Problem? When Changing Discs And Pads


Recommended Posts

hi all,

was in the process of changing my discs and pads when i got to the front passenger side and removed wheel, removed caliper from carrier and found the rubber seals were a different shape to the drivers side. so i did what all good engineers do and i proded one of the seals with my finger and for my trouble i got a face full of brake fluid!

needless to say i went and rinsed my eyes and returned to the job!

ive since drained both seals of fluid and the caliper seems to be functioning properly no pulling under braking, no loss of pedal feel etc.

any ideas what the problem is/was?

have a look at the picture below, seal on the left is part drain seal on right is full.
