Working with a 2001 Impala 3.8L WITH 80,000 miles. (6 months ago) I repaired the front brakes after my wife stated she heard noise from the front. I replaced the pads on the right side and EVERTHING on the left. The left pads were gone AKA missing so the caliper piston was pushing directly on the rotor. I replaced the rotor, caliper and pads on the left. I bled the system and everything seemed fine. Now after more grinding noise surfaced the left side has uneven grooves in the rotor and the pads are nearly worn, (only 6 months and only one side). Could the new caliper be the problem, or maybe the master cylinder? Please point me in the right direction.
have the same problem?
