    Old brake caliper piston seals???

    I have a CRF250R, and my brakes work very poorly. It is not easy to stop as it used to be. I am wondering if the caliper piston seals could be corroded because I did bleed the brakes, and refill it. But it could have been a bad job. I will try it.

    Bleeding the brakes is something you do after you refill, merely emptying the reservoir and hoses is not bleeding. There will be a bleed nipple on the caliper that you use, you can make a bleed.

    BRAKE CALIPER PISTON cracked? Should I replace it?

    I took my 93 Nissan Quest for a brake pad replacement. and the guy told me that the piston of the caliper was cracked and crumbled, yet not ALL of it, just a 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch where the piston meets the brake pad. It was corroded, but it.

    If your family is riding in the car replace the entire caliper with a rebuilt one. You can get a Duralast model from Auto-Zone for around $35 plus tax with your old core. See link below.

    What force retracts the brake caliper piston !?

    After you apply the brake pedal, what causes the brake cylinder to return to its regular spot instead of continually applying force to the brake pad . I say its a vacuum, but some are saying I am wrong. Then why is the biggest vacuum line off the.

    It's simple and you are correct it is vacuum but it is not in anyway related to the vacuum booster. The booster adds pressure to your stopping power but does nothing to retract the piston.
