Gold FFM Popular Post Mysterae Posted June 9, 2022 Gold FFM Popular Post Report Share Posted June 9, 2022 The latest thing to stand in my way of getting my Esprit back on the road (not including fuel prices!) is a seized rear near side brake caliper. It certainly bites, just doesn't let go resulting in a very hot disc, pads and wheel. Got my trusty thermal camera out (new toy ) to see how hot and compare it to the off side rear. (First image is thermal only, second image is a fusion of thermal and actual camera). The brake disc is 251C and the wheel is 104C, a bit too toasty. Compared to the other side: Yeah, a lot cooler. I renewed the caliper seals about 6 years or so but I can't remember if I removed the piston from the near side caliper at that time (no pictures), I certainly did for the off side: Think I'll strip it down and have a look at the condition of the piston before deciding on sending it away. An upgrade to the brakes is definitely needed. 3 Quote Signature not working... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
