Caliper problems.

My right rear caliper seized up on me today, so I replaced it. About 2 months ago the left rear seized up, and I replaced that one. They aren't an expensive part, more just an inconvenience when your driving and come to a stop light and can just smell the brake pads burning.

Has anyone else had problems with these going out, or just bad luck that both of my rears went out within 2 months of eachother?

Is there any way to be proactive and prevent it? Ask because I haul long distance with my 5er and wouldn't want to be caught in the middle of nowhere with a stuck brake.

flush your brake fluid on and annual basis and rebuild your caliper slides once a year. It can only help.

Yea, pretty common problem. I have had to replace two already. Like mentioned before flush the brake lines and keep some antiseize on the slider pins. Good luck

Sorry to bring a thread from the dead. What part usually seizes up? Is it the sliding pins or the actual caliper pistons freezing up in the bore? Corrosion related?

Thanks for any info.
