Ford Probe Repair Question
Parking brake does not work on replaced caliper
Well if you didn't adjust the caliper to the rotor and pad thickness you will not hold! The piston must be turned to adjust it for proper clearance!

What do you mean turn the piston to adjust it for proper clearance? Yes, I did install the new caliper with the piston still compressed all the way in as it came out of the box. But it seems to be in proper position now after I bled the brake system. The brake pedal and the brake is working well except the parking brake in that caliper. Can you give more details how to adjust it? Do I have to bleed all the wheels even I did not disturb them coz the manual says bleed the system starting from right rear, left front, left rear and right front? I think you only do this if you replaced all calipers, right?
