Rear caliper

Asked by Apr 01, 2017 at 01:42 PM about the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Nissan Pathfinder. Just changed
pads all around. Caliper pin screw broke so
bought new, greased it up, and sruck it back in
the hole. Drove it for 10 minutes after and
smelled a burning smell. The right rear wheel
was very hot. I'm thinking the caliper bracket is
not releasing. Suggestions: change bracket or
whole caliper?

More than likely the caliper piston is frozen up, common, change out the caliper. The new caliper comes with a new caliper bracket on it, so your old caliper and bracket would go back for the core.

Did you bleed the lines .. (most likly that causes mushy brakes but it could do lots of other things as well) loosed the bleed screw on that brake ... does it release the pad? If it does then you may have a "Master cylinder" issue .. if it doesn't then something either installed wrong or broken. People have actually had their tires catch fire from brakes dragging
