Long story short, I was doing a simple DIY brake pad change and it seems that the brake caliper got stuck (the the brake line seem to be slightly twisted). I went for a test drive in the neighbor and unfortunately, the front driver side brakes started smoking and the rotors actually turned red from the immense heat.
I know I messed up and made a noobie and stupid mistake on my part but I'm wondering what else I could've messed up. I'm guessing since the brakes were smoking and the rotors were red (with heat), the rotors are warped. I'm hoping thats the extent of the damage but I'm wondering what else could be affected?
To make it short
1) stuck brake caliper, most likely due to bent brake line 2) test drove and braked at 35mph and front driver side brake started smoking, turning bright red and loud noise 3) I tried to take off the caliper but it seemed stuck
1) Outside of brake pad and rotor, what else could be damaged due to a stuck brake caliper? 2) If the caliper is stuck due to a twisted brake line, can I just bleed it to uncompress the brake caliper?
thanks for any answers and to save you guys time, yes...I messed up and made stupid mistakes but I will learn from this.
