stickier than a sticky thing

Me 99 uk turbo has been pulling to the left recently.... took it to revolution in newcastle ( after being laser tracked- spot on) guys there said they think the near side caliper is sticking... said they were four pots too? is this right? anyhow, although it does need news brakes(300- next month!) i'm going to have a go at freeing up the caliper.... so, any advice much appreciated... doing this weekend.... cheers

hi rez, easy to see if it is a 4 potter, there will be two circular cast sections in a kind of figure 8 shape on each side of the caliper, those will be the pots :wink:

if you strip it down and throughly clean everything, then smear a little copper grease on the slides and the back of the pads that should do the trick.

If you dont disturb the hose then all should be well, might be worth bleeding the brakes after though ( thinking about it)

DONT use your finger in the copper grease as its carsonagenic!

if the caliper is sticking, normally more likely to be the internal piston seals??

might free up working it back and forth other wise your looking at at rebuild...........


p.s. if tis a 99 spec (JDM or UK) then it has the subaru 4pots as std................
