2005 Volvo S80 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 55000 miles
I am having trouble removing a brake rotor. I have removed the brake and caliper and hub bolt and I am having trouble getting it worked free. Doesn't seem to budge at all. Am I missing something? What else should I do?
replaced my front brakes and rotors. I test drove the car and noticed a rubbing sound like metal on the right side. I drove about 2 miles and stopped and noticed a grove starting to form on the right rotor. I have no issues on the left side. Here are some things I noticed when I was re-installing the caliper: The caliper mounting bolts didn't screw in and stuck out further compared to before I removed them. Also, There is a wire spring clip that goes on the outside of the caliper facing the tire. It was very difficult to get back on and I still don't have it exactly like it was before removal. What could I have done wrong. Is it possible that I bought the wrong pads. This is a little frustrating because now it looks like I am going to have to replace a new rotor.
