    caliper

    Why is it that my front right caliper is blowing of a lot a of dust compared to the right side and after a short drive when I pour water on it, it sizzles and the passenger side doesn't. Could the caliper be stuck. I just changed the pads pushed the caliper in and the same results.

    Definitely sounds to me like your caliper is sticking.

    I made the mistake of Flip-Flopping the slide pins (top & bottom) when I did my brakes a while back. It caused the calipers to stick & burned up my pads which of course will cause a ton of dust from pads that should virtually be dust free!!

    Re: caliper

    Tire pressure running high on it after a drive as well?

    These are classic symptoms.

    Found the problem. Not the caliper at all. The top sliding pin is frozen stuck. Does anyone know where I could get a new caliper holder or abutment piece with New slider pins. If that's the name for it. Any where besides the dealer

    Re: caliper

    It might be worth your time to check with Chris Heath @ Rippy's just to see what he could do for you. Sometimes there are differences in parts and only tires are more important than brakes.
