Doing a brake pad change I cannot compress back brake caliper. It appears to be leaky around rubber grommet area of piston. Do I need to replace it?

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Yes, it sounds like the caliper piston has worn, become stuck, and is now leaking. It should be replaced.

Here is a link that shows how one is replaced:

Let me know if you run into trouble or have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
