    Brake pads still rubbing

    My drivers side front caliper on my '95 xj6 froze recently in some really cold weather, making some nasty noise. After replacing the caliper, the brake pads are still rubbing (lightly) although making a whole lot less noise. I've taken the wheel off to make sure it is the pad making noise and not coming from the wheel bearing, and it is the pad. There is little or no play in the bearing. The guy at the auto parts store suggested it could be a brake line failure. Any ideas?

    Breke LINE?????

    Mike:
    I sure would like to know what the cause - effect relationship exists between brake dragging and brake lines could be. Are you sure he did not say brake LINING, which is what the friction material was called on a shoe type brake.
    As to dragging brakes... You said you replaced the caliper so a hard spot in the sliding mechanism would seem unlikely. I assume the pads were seated correctly when you assembled them. And I assume you greased the sliding mechanism and pins with high temperature grease. If you can't live with turning up the radio, I would take the caliper off and make sure it can slide freely, make sure the long pretension springs are installed corrctly on the outside of the caliper, and just generally look for how any wear is showing on the pads.
