cailper is bad or brake hose is collasped
it cost me 650$ for new front calipers and discs, they seased up
One of the brake calipers or drums is not completely releasing. If it's a disk brake, replace the calipers. If it's a drum, check the emergency brake cable.
Sometime the brake shoes will rust or freeze to the drum. TAke it to a garage.
Whether caliper paint improves caliper function is debatable, but it is generally agreed that it improves durability. In your case, I would suggest that it is the calipers which are malfunctioning.
If you are mechanically inclined, then you could use a manual for your specific vehicle and fix/replace the brake calipers yourself. If you are not mechanically inclined, then I would suggest finding a reputable local repair shop or dealership to take your vehicle to so that they can repair it correctly.
check brake hoses. check brake fluid condition, if fluid is contaminated or mixed with wrong fluid, calipers can lock-up or stick. check caliper bolts, hardware, caliper brackets. replace if broken, bent, or missing.
That would probably sicking calipers or warped rotors or both
Be sure to change both front brake hoses. I didn't and my calipers would lock up.
Brake calipers stick when they get old. You need to replace it and the other side While you're at it.
My guess would be that you might have a bad brake hose to one of the front calipers.
You have a brake line to the calipers that is collapsing. A mechanic will tell you which side it is by the direction it is pulling to. Caliper Piston binding on that side
Check your rear pads and brake calipers
Rear calipers may need adjustment (they adjust differently than most cars with a rear disc parking brake) or replacement. Take it to a Miata specialist. And it's "brake" not "break". But really, if it doesnt work at all and it were your calipers, they would be screwed, otherwise it probably needs adjusted with theres an adjustment screw on the inner side of the parking brake lever.
You probably have a warped brake rotor. New rotors are fairly inexpensive, I would replace both front rotors and brake pads while your in there. The calipers and sliders along with the brake hoses and lines need to be examined also.
Yes. One switch is for the left and right brake light assemblies; and, the other is for the 'third' brake light.
Bleed the master cylinder.& then rebleed the system.
if your brake pedal is constantly getting spongy and you have to bleed the calipers constantly the original calipers had a crappy design where the 4 piston calipers would rust internally and pit where they would suck in air and cause low btake pedal and car would not stop for sh==t. reman calipers are avail. cheap now they are made with stainless steel internals. dont just fix the one that pumps air out do it once and right. when you bleed them you start the furthest wheel from the master cyl so do r/rear first l/rear next r/ frpnt 3rd l/ front last
Rear Calipers sticking. Replace the calipers and drain and flush the entire brake system. In addition, replacing the rotors when you install new pads will make them last longer. Worn rotors will not mate properly to the new pads, causing uneven wear.
Your brake calipers have pistons that can after years of driving and not properly flushing the brake system become frozen. You may also want to replace the brake hoses at the same time as they can sometimes produce locked brakes as well.
The pads or calipers are not sliding smoothly. Check all mounting hardware.
For the car with such age it can be anything. I would start from main brake lines. If the lines are fine, check calipers and rear brake cylinders for leaks. If you find any leak it's easier to replace a part, then trying to fix it.
remove tire calipers brake assembly then pull your rotors off i would recomend putting new brake pads if your putting new rotors you will need a special puller for the rotors cause they are pressed on
Things like the calipers, master cylinder, ABS modulators... those would be. Brake pads? No, they would not, as those are wear items.
It would be helpful to know: What vehicle you are working on. The condition of the rear brakes, and were they also bled. Does the brake fluid level stay full, if no then there may be a brake fluid leak.
