There are several symptoms that something is wrong with my brakes, but I'm really not sure what it could be. I just changed the rear disc brake pads/rotors, and found that the left side pads were completely worn down while the right side had about 50% pad still left. Also, I just changed the rear pads about 1 1/2 years ago. I don't think they should wear down that fast. I had to replace the right rear caliper also since the bleeder screw was completely destroyed. I bled the rear brakes only (I know I should have done all four, but.) And got some good air bubbles out of the left side (since the hose was detached to replace the rotor). I was using the two person method (pump brakes a few times and hold, then loosen bleeder screw, let some fluid flow out, close the bleeder, repeat). On the right rear brakes the fluid flowed out a little initially, but then no more fluid would come out even after pumping the brakes repeatedly. I also didn't get any air bubbles on that side. Is there another problem with my brakes on the right rear side? The brake lines were replaced recently because of corrosion. And the brakes have long been rather soft, but I've heard that is a common problem with this car. I have bled them before, and never gotten significant air out, so I don't think that is the problem. And the pedal does not sink to the floor when holding it down, so I hope it is not a master cylinder problem. Help!
have the same problem?
