2017 Corolla hot front rims and lug nuts after bleeding brakes without scan tool
Hi, I have hot front lugs and rims(Scalding not smoking) and cant figure it out. I have done the following:
Changed the flex hose on both front L & R.
Replaced rotors front L & R.
Replaced pads and hardware front L & R.
Bled the braking sytem from rear to front carefully.
There are no leaks at master cylinder, there is no bearing groaning sound on either sides.
Im assuming this is either sticking front calipers or some other hydralic issue keeping the pads too close to the rotors.
Most likely your caliber is bad. When they stick the breaks will heat up and be red hot compared to other wheels. There is a slim possibility that the slide pins are also sticking.
I am going to replace the calipers tomorrow with rebuilt
Wait, are both front wheels getting abnormally hot? It’s odd for both the 5 yr old callipers to go bad together..
Did you have the proper scan tool hooked up to set the ABS solenoids when you bled the brakes?
