the claper sticks
My car has an automatic transmission.
If the brake caliper is sticking due to the piston binding in the caliper then it should be replaced. Raise and support the vehicle, remove the tire, and disconnect the brake line attached to the caliper. Remove the caliper attachment bolts and slide off the caliper. If the rotor needs replaced then replace it now by removing the caliper bracket and sliding off the rotor and installing a new one. Then reinstall the caliper bracket. Afterwards, install the new brake pads and caliper making sure to tighten all of the bolts to specifications. Connect the brake line to the caliper using new brass sealing washers. Bleed the brakes. You may need to replace both front brakes at the same time.
