Problema with brake


Recommended Posts

Push the pistons back into the caliper, centralise it onto the disk and see how it goes. If the same pad is still rubbing after resetting it then it's likely to be a sticky seal.

Take the pads out and thoroughly clean inside the caliper with a small squirt of brake cleaner and a small brush.

Gently pump the pistons out a little and using an unfolded paperclip put a drop of oil on the seal. You can use brake oil but be careful not to get it on paintwork and use only a tiny amount.

Push the pistons back in, pump them out, re-oil and repeat till both pistons are moving equally when you pull the lever.

Clean up any excess oil with a clean cloth and refit the pads.
