S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The rear brakes wore prematurely. It was later discovered the there was no lubrication on the caliper pins of the rear brakes. The pins froze and as a result, the calipers could not slide. This caused premature wear of the inside brake pads and rotor surfaces. The manufacturer failed to lubricate the pins. The pins were frozen into the caliper brackets and could not be loosened and required replacement.
