winterset Posted February 10, 2009 Report Share Posted February 10, 2009 took car out over the weekend, and I had a really bad screech that eventually went away. today I changed the rear brakes. 3 pads had about 80%, and one had 0% it was the outer one that's not on the piston. the pins were clean, and greased. I cleaned, and regreased the pins again when I changed the rear pads. only thing I saw was that the stainless clips were a little dirty with some buildup. Not sure why I didn't clean them on the last brake job, but this time, I used brake cleaner, and wire brushed them till they shined. I hope that was the cause. Not sure what the sign of a bad caliper is, or what ese it can be. something similiar happened to my wife's front pads a few weeks back. again, everything there looked OK too. am I missing something, or can both cars have a bad cali[per? - the van is a 2002 Venture. neither car has had any brake work done - besides pads.
