Brake? knock
Written by randiana46128 on 10/9/2010 at 07:01 pm

Upon further dissambly it appears brake problem is somehow related to having one
nearly seized piston in the pair. I pulled the caliper and ran the piston in and
out, cleaning with brake fluid. It didn't loosen up completely but much better.
I'm not sure how this caused pulsing. I guess the other piston pushed in for
contact and since this piston didnt move in, it allowed the caliper to vibrate.
I will continue to see if this will loosen w/o completel dissambly of wheel
cylinder, The vibration was much better but seems to be coming back, so I
guess its not loose enough yet. I didn't send pics of the rotor, because the
polished bars are so subtle, I dont think they would show up. They are inline
with each of the "inner" slots though, go figure. Thanks for comments, will
update. Randy

    I had the problem of a seized piston and bad vibration when braking on my 94 at 60,000 miles, a good cleaning and fitting stainless hoses solved it. Phil Crawley. in UK. --- In
