Probably won't need it, but anytime you have dissimilar metals you run the chance of them bonding due to corrosion. Not a huge deal but it's always to consider.

Brembo Brake update:

Over the past few weeks I started to hear some slight rubbing of the brake pads on the passenger rear of my car. I didn't think much of it as I though it may have been dirt or a rock that got wedged in there at some point.
I let a few more weeks go by and realized that the sound wasn't going away but was getting much worse. I didn't realize how bad until my wife took my car to work the other day while I fixed her's.
The so called rubbing has turned into full out grinding.
Over the weekend I had a few moments to jack the car up and give the caliper a look.
The image below are the condition of the pads. As you can see, one side is completely worn off and the other is normal for the mileage on the car.

I ordered new pads as a quick fix for now to stop the grinding but it looks like a I have a problem somewhere. if any of you have suggestions, feel free to chime in.

The few reasons that I think this could be happening are:

- There is air in the line.

- The piston of that side of the caliper is scored and causing it not to retract properly.

- There is air on one side of the caliper.

Either way I do need a new rotor at some point and possibly a rebuild on that side caliper

Have you smelled the brakes at all while driving? There is a huge difference between the two pads. On the sliding pins, are they able to freely move? I've seen frozen pins before cause the same issue.

No smell ever when driving which I also thought was weird once I pulled the pads.
The whole assembly had a good amount of corrosion from last winter's salt abuse. The pins and pad separator came out without too much trouble but there was a build up of crud on them. The calipers were completely rebuilt with Brembo seals about 18 months ago so I think they are fine.

I'm hoping it was just a stuck slider that went unnoticed for too long.
I'll clean up all the parts, add the new pads and keep an eye on it for the next month or so.

Thanks man, I've received a few PM's with the stuck slider pin being the common problem that does this so my fingers are crossed.

Thanks bud!

Brakes are fixed and back up and running.
It was a simple fix, the slider pins and that metal clip were glued together from a improper installation of Disk Brake Quiet. I used when I assembled the calipers I used a ton of that stuff on all the metal surfaces. My brakes were super quiet but that stuff is basically silicone when it dries so the pads never released.

I guess I was dragging for a while but never noticed. My car is slow anyway so I wasn't missing too much excitement with them like that, lol

I don't have pictures of the install but I do have some of my car I took yesterday

Yeah, when factoring fuel costs, it usually ends up being cheaper to ship unless you're sending a dash and headliner

Thanks man, the head unit is a pioneer Z140BH. Not sure what the 8400 can do but this is my start up screen. I can make you a splash screen if yours supports it.

Cheers!
