Stuck Brake Caliper or Bad Rubber Brake Line
Stuck Brake Caliper or Bad Rubber Brake Line. Make sure the brake caliper is what is stuck and not trouble with the rubber flex line. In this video I try and show how I determine if the brake caliper is stuck, the slides are stuck ,or a rubber flex line is causing the issue. If you try and push the piston back in the caliper by sticking a screwdriver in and pulling,it will give you a good indication of what the issue is. You may also need to loosen a bleeder or a banjo bolt to test the line . By relieving brake fluid pressure , if the brake caliper goes in easy then chances is the rubber flex line is the issue.

Possible culprit when your brake caliper is sticking on your vehicle.
If you have a brake caliper sticking. Or even a new replacement one sticking. It is a good possibility it is the hose. I went online and saw mechanics talking about a hose can work as a check valve. But evena mechanic buddy of mine never saw one do what mine did. This can likely be a real issue if you live in a State that uses road salt. I drive my truck on some saltwater beaches. So its about the same thing. Hope this video helps someone getting frustrated by braking issues. Apologize for the shaky video. Camera has zero stabilization.





How To Diagnose and Replace a Bad Brake Caliper -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Brakes are a common DIY project but I often get asked about brake calipers and how to check if they're bad. This video not only shows how to find a bad brake caliper but also how to replace it. It is recommended that you do both sides when you find a faulty brake caliper but it's not necessary. If you're on a budget you can just do one but you might experience a pull to one side when braking if you do this. Otherwise you can follow the steps in this video for caliper replacement. I use my 1997 Subaru Legacy L in this video but the principals and techniques apply to many vehicles both domestic and imported.
