Hi Guys,

Got a question, was doing pad replacement on rear discs tonight, one side (passenger) piston screwed back in, where as the drivers side piston would spin but not screw in, no fluid was being pushed out either...

I did notice the dust cap has completely deteriorated off the piston and there is plenty of brake dust in and around the piston itself.

im wondering if the piston could possibly be seized?

anyone with experience in this able to comment? should i jsut buy a replacement?

When the dust boot is shot, it needs rebuild/replacement with a rebuilt.

You often have to press & turn to get them back in, but even if that worked you know that one will give trouble - soon if not immediately.
