Rear brake calipers sticking
My WJ went out for a test drive today after getting new discs, pads, shoes all round. I found that the rear discs were very hot so made the assumption that the handbrake shoes were adjusted wrong. Wrong! The pads were stuck by the piston.... I wound the piston back in (on both sides) and made sure slider pins were free and pads were able to move freely. All okay, so another test drive and same again. Looks like the pots or pistons won't retract for both rear calipers.
Could someone give me a link to a thread for hopefully a common problem like this? All I can find is problems with the front rotors, etc when searching.
