How to Lubricate Caliber Slider Pins (Most Overlooked Mistake)
Lubricating these caliper slider pins are one of the most important parts of doing a brake job. I've seen a lot of brake calibers lock up because brake pads were installed without cleaning and greasing these pins. I still change my brakes myself because I know the job is done right, and that gives me confidence that the car will stop appropriately. If you're new to putting brakes on, please take the time to make sure these glider pins are smoothly operating. When I first started putting brakes on I didn't do this step and sometimes you can get away with it. It's not worth it, brakes are something you want right every time. I hope you enjoy the video, please comment with techniques you have found that have helped you while changing your brakes.
