elmscroft Posted April 26, 2009 Share Posted April 26, 2009 Hi All, I have had a problem with rear right hand wheel getting very hot on occasions. On stipping down have found brake pads thinner than the opposite side, leading me to say the piston is sticking. On removing caliper, piston will not move in/out or rotate using pliers, but will move out will engine running and brake pedal depressed, obviously once re-connected, (for those with a GSOH). Questions being; Should it rotate? Should it move in/out easily? Is there likely to have been any damage to hub through overheating? Can I fit free off or need to fit new piston kit? Is there a piston kit? Is it wise to do both rears? After all that, I'll change fluid, normal bleeding procedure? Any help and pointers would be appreciated. Many Thanks Mike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
