Caliper moving the wrong way? binding brakes

12-14-2014, 12:06 PM
What I thought was a simple job has turned into a mystery. All I wanted to do was to change shoes and discs on a daihatsu charade.

But on replacing them the brakes are binding on both sides. Spent two days checking everything and it seems to be the caliper pins pulling the Caliper toward the car which means the new pads are binding to the new disc. Any idea what I am doing wrong.

I can see the rubber Caliper pin is sealing air the Caliper hole creating air pressure and forcing the pin out. The other pin has no rubber pin and seems to be ok. Any ideas much appreciated I am stumped.
