My 2000 Honda Civic Aerodeck just failed its MOT (roadworthyness test) on Front Brake Imbalance (51%).
I changed the pads a few months ago, and had trouble with both calipers on the driver's side of the car sticking. I tried to free them off, but obviously not well enough at the front (the rear imbalance was only 8%)...
Any suggestions as to how to reliably free it off? I'm pretty sure the problem lies with the sliders rather than the piston - at least, that was the problem before...
Any suggestions for a reliable means of testing it would be helpful too, I don't want to try and fix it and have it fail again...
The numbers on the brake test report:
- Measured weight (kgf) Lh 372, Rh 357
- Drag (kgf) Lh 17, Rh 9
- Brake Forces (kgf) Lh 287, Rh 268
- Brake Difference (%) 51
The discs are worn, but not badly.
