Does this vehicle have traction control? Are all the tires the same size?
Even a fish would stay out of trouble if it kept its mouth shut.

No traction control and has a normal 4X4

Greg.

X-Trail with same problems (brake putting itself on!) and showers of sparks after five mile drive until vehicle had to be rescued. L/H front brake. siezed wheel cylinder found and have fitted caliper repair kit... twenty mile test drive not showing problem still............ (forgot to say vehicle had had new pads and discs/rotors 1k miles ago, which was thought to be answer to 'same problem' - pads had jammed under peripheral wear ridge) Will report back when a few more miles have been put on it.

Check your PM Larry :thumbsup:


Car came back in so i could check it again ?
I decided to strip down the right caliper and replace the caliper kit seal,
was two weeks ago, he got back to me and said all is good now
When I checked the calipers when he first came in, the pistons went
in and out with ease, did not see any reason to open the caliper, (wrong).
Best open and check ,just because it had only 15.000 miles on the clock
don't get fooled by this when i eventfully opened the caliper there was quite alot of
dirt in there . :paluszkiem: So its sometime better to check completely no matter how many miles are on the clock.
