Damn brakes…

Posted: May 3, 2004 in Lotus

Friday after work I stopped by VR and Aaron put the car up on the lift. He retightened the hub nuts (which were a bit loose.) I did notice that the slight shimmy was more pronounced after that. I drove the car around quite a bit Friday night and things didn’t get any better.Saturday afternoon I pulled the calipers off and tried to exercise the calipers as suggested by JAE. I’m not sure but I think the outboard piston on the passenger side may be sticking. I applied brake quiet to the back of the pads in the hope that it would quiet things up. I did notice that the dust shield was rubbing on the rotor (so I bent it out of the way a little.)The brake quiet didn’t help a whole lot which worries me a little. Anyway, it doesn’t look like I’m in the clear yet.
