Having problems with your Toyota Tercel ?

My toyota tercel 92 front left caliper froze, could an uneven wear of the rotor explain it? (I replaced my brake pads 9 months before switching to new rotors...)If the rotor is the problem: 1- Do I have to replace both rotors? 2- Yet, is there necessarily need to work the brake caliper/ rebuild it?

Answers :

You should have a 1 year warrenty on the caliper, If it failed just replace one. No reason to replace both. Rotors always warp and have nothing to do with a sticking caliper.
A sticky or seized caliper will cause the wear to the rotor. First thing you need to do is to check caliper to see what is causing it to stay in the applied position. Is it a bad/seized piston in the caliper, or is the slides, and pins for caliper dirty, dry, corroded,rusted etc, that is causing it to not retract properly. It may even be a brake flex hose defective as well. I'm assuming you've done this type of work before, and know how to test if caliper is staying in applied position, because of seized piston, or if caliper assy., needs clean and lube, as well as test flex hose. Give me an idea of your experience in this area, and I will continue from there. If replacing rotors, yes I would do them in pairs, as well as calipers, unless one caliper is recently new.
