removing caliper 1996 olds aurora lockedNote that many times the "locking" can be caused by a sticking e-brake cable rather than a locked caliper. Check to verify that there is some slack in the cable at the caliper when the parking brake is released. If not, the cable may be seized in its jacket somewhere, and will have to be freed or replaced. If the caliper is locked, you will need to disconnect the brake line to remove the line pressure. Then disconnect the e-brake cable, then the caliper. If it is still stuck, you will need to retract the piston inside the caliper - sometimes they stick and you have to lube the caliper and hit the caliper with a hammer lightly or it can crack. Another way is to CAREFULLY heat the caliper with a torch until the caliper expands and releases. If any question please e-mail me Ben. email@example.com good luck!Don't try to re-use a caliper that has locked. While you may be able to free it temporarily, they almost always end up sticking again. The cost of a loaded new or remanufactured caliper assembly is cheap insurance against it sticking any time in the near future.
