I replaced the front disk brake pads on both sides. I put everything back together, got in the truck put it in drive and now the brakes are locked up. What could I do about this please help. I just had a baby and can't afford a mechanic.
You need to check the caliper slider bolts. If they are stuck, the brakes would seize. The other thing to check would be the caliper pistons. If any dust cover is broken, the caliper piston can get stuck due to dirt accumulation on the piston.
Try loosening the bleeder bolt and retightening to see if the brake releases.
