Well guys, it is not a matter of concern as i think, but I would like to know about this, actually since last couple of days I am feeling a little jerk while I hit the brake, I have no idea, but expect you people may have some ??
Okay, I was not aware about it. BTW, whenever i hit the brake it pulls the car to backwards with some kind of vibration on the steering wheel. Initially it was constant jerk but yesterday it was stronger than previous one.
thanks for your response.
Start by checking your brake pads. Check the amount of pad left because they could be almost worn out. Also, if one pad looks like its wearing unevenly then your brake caliper may be sticking. This can cause uneven pad wear as the caliper piston doesnt retract. A pull to one side is a common symptom.
My right front caliper was sticking cause a pull to the right. I got a rebuilt kit for $15. I havent done it yet, seeing as the car is a summer only car and its already started snowing. But the kit includes new seals for the piston.
Its possible for the seals surrounding the piston to crack, or wear with age, allowing water or mositure into the piston area. Rust will cause the piston to stick or otherwise not function properly. That is the only place rust will affect the performance of the brake calipers. I live in Canada and drove year round through the winter, and have no signs of rust on the calipers themselves. I havent had the chance to look at my caliper to see if that is the problem causing mine to stick.
Sometimes, if the car is not driven for a while, rust forms on the rotor. If allowed to sit for more than two weeks, small pits can form, roughening the surface with a result of uneven braking. Another place rust can cause the symptom described is on the caliper mount. If rust forms in just the right place, it will prevent the caliper from self-centering, and cause uneven wear on the pads/rotor. Removing the rust usually solves the problem(s).
Well, you people are absolutely right, there is the rust on it and I have just washed it from the warm water and painted. But after painting yet not driven the car. Hope the problem must get eliminated. Prior to the problem I have never even thought about the rust, to cause such problem. BTW, thanks for your great advice.
There is the rust on it and I have actually washed it from the warm water and painted. Anyway in the wake of work of art yet not driven the auto. Trust the situation should inch toward getting wiped out. Earlier to the situation I have never even pondered the rust, to create such situation.
