2005 Ford E-Series Van 68000 miles
I had a rear brake caliper leak. I installed a rebuilt caliper, blead the line. Was getting alot of smoke while driving, also felt a littlew vibration at about 30mph. I took off the wheel and figured I put too much grease on the back of the pads and slides. I cleaned up tghe residual grease. Im still getting smoke and the rotor and all connecting parts are getting very hot. I checked the caliper to see if it lets go when the pedal is released, it does. How far is the brake pads to be from the rotor when pedal is released? Is the replacement caliper defective? Please answe asap.
