Hey guys about a week ago my driver side brakes were rubbing and so I took it apart and realized that one of the caliper pistons were broken so I replaced the caliper on the driver And the pads on both sides now a week later it seems like the passenger side is smoking after driving? Could it be something else on the brakes thank you?!
Could be "unbalanced" now making the pass one do all the work, I try to stick to replacing everything on brakes in pairs. If the driver's side caliper was bad theres a good chance the pass one has problems. Or the pass caliper could have a seized guide pin causing it to stick, or problems with the hoses like mentioned. Try bleeding both calipers just to be sure there isn't any air / difference in pressure in the lines and check out the condition of the pass caliper.
just after i had the rears apart to check the axle seals were ok after having new bearings
and seals fitted and lube the slide pins, the left rear seized up.
I think its partly down to the inner pad being clipped into the piston so it can't move about like
the outer one does.
Absolutely!........Especially if you are too poor to pay £100 an hour in labour! That's the main reason I learned to spanner my motors. It's amazing what you can learn if you don't have a choice. Nothing I would not do myself these days. Only time my Jeep goes to a workshop is for the mot (safey check)......although I might have to concede defeat on my rear pinion seal...just can't shift the nut!

The video makes it look so easy.
Never my experience anytime I got to remove bolts. I had a horrible time removing the caliper bracket bolts and all the videos on youtube made me think I was doing something wrong. Ha ha
