Hi all and thanks in advance! 

2011 Ford Edge Limited... I noticed a few weeks ago a grinding.. checked, and rotors were scredded up. 

Upon inspection and disassembly, looked like the caliper slide boot ripped, and it just froze up. Bought a new one, lubed correctly, replaced both sides rear rotors and pads, back on the road and thought all good! 

 

Now, Im hearing another slight grinding or dragging out of the same side.. 

 

Im thinking*** the rear caliper is toast as when I had it apart I watched and saw proper operation of the E Brake cable.. 

The problem is I have never worked on a car with this type of caliper before. (its the first rear disc ebrake set up like this ive even seen).  

 

Inspection of brake fluid hoses look ok, Ive tested and lines look fine, e brake cable looks to be in working order (it moves as much as the other side)... 

 

Any other ideas or things I should inspect or check before swapping to a new caliper?

THANKS!

Most likely the caliper.  Did you bleed the lines?   Did you crack open the bleeder before you pushed the caliper back in?

Hi, yes.. unfortunately lol..   

 

Any sort of funky advice I need to know before swapping it out? I only ask because of this design is so new to me.

Thanks!

Are you referencing the piston boot or the guide pins boots?   Were the inside pads worn more than the outside pads?
