While on the Blue Ridge last week the front brakes on the 'stang started scraping. By the time we got through NoVa and back home they were scraping badly and the left rotor was showing signs of metal on metal contact.
Yesterday afternoon I put brand-new brake pads and
rotors on the front. The left outside pad was down to metal but the
rest of them looked practically new (they are only a bit over a year
old). I checked the sliders and they moved easily.
I put on the new anti-rattle
clips, cleaned and greased the sliders and put everything back
together, I'll keep a close eye on it and see what happens. If all else
fails I'll replace the left hose and caliper but I'm hoping the fresh
grease and new clips will fix the issue.
And of course, since I couldn't drive the car all week the sun came
back out to play but today and tomorrow it is supposed to rain again.
