Why are my brakes always squeezing on the rotor?
- Could be a few things Brandon. The first things I'd do would be..
1) Remove the brake assembly, clean out any muck and dried up dirt (if you haven't done this for a while you'll definitely find crap packed in there), and grease the calliper pins.
2) Check the reservoir level. It's only supposed to be filled about 3/4 NOT completely full.
3) Make sure the disc isn't bent out of shape.
Check out How To Change Brake Pads for a good description on how to clean 'em out.
