This is more of a question of how something may happened. My vehicle was struck on the left rear, It was hit on the body, the wheel was destroyed and the rear end was bent. My question is, the brake caliper on that side, which has that plastic, bake-o-lite type material for a piston, was reused since it has no signs of visible damage. Could the piston inside the caliper have taken enough shock from the hit to that side but still function and could it eventually break apart inside? I have been told that the piston would have taken some serious shock and you may not see visible signs of fracture since it is not completely visible and they have been known to fail after an accident of this nature. It is making some noise in that area but you cannot see a problem.
have the same problem?
