Hey guys, I recently noticed a scrapping sound from passenger side of my neon.I figured my brakes needed replacing since its been a little while.To make a long story short, I found out that the drivers side caliper will not press in at all.I turned as hard as I can on the c-clamp and it will not go in any further.So the brakes on the drivers side with frozen caliper are still at over 75%, while the brakes on passenger side were completely wore out.
Im not a rich guy, and I just put money into 4 tires.Im wondering If there is any way I may be able to tear apart that caliper and get it working again.What would cause it to freeze like that anyway.?

So, you guys are saying I should be able to pick up a whole caliper from an auto parts store.? I know a real good junkyard I can try also...If the auto parts store is gonna be expensive.Thanks for the advice, and that how-to, I may end up trying to repair myself, just to learn something.
For the same reason you stated above, I only recomemded he go and get a new or rebuilt unit.
Feel free to recondition it yourself man it's all a part of the learning process and very easy to do.
