Did my front brakes today

Passenger side inside pad was crumbling apart and slider pins were rusted dry and it took a lot of tedious work to get them out without damaging the rubber boots. It was a Raybesto Professional Grade pad, and they had very little wear. Good thing I bought 2 sets of slider pins just in case yesterday.

Replaced with EBC rotor and Ultimax pads, greased everything. Looks like previous owner changed the pads only and didn't greased the sliders. Rotors were way older than the pads.

Yikes. I have a little pitting and corrosion on my slide pins around the top. I cleaned them up with a wire wheel and greased them and do so at every service. Those two look really bad. The corrosion has probably spread to the the calipers as well.

The caliper and piston were both fine, it was really the sliders that caused the brake failure.

Sometimes it pays to have the caliper brackets sandblasted. That and with new hardware your pads won't bind.

You really need proactive maintenance if you live in Canada!

Or anywhere they cover the bloody roads in salt. Like here in England.

I have a sandblast cabinet at home, however the brackets and calipers were not crusty at all.

I think that it didn't helped when I went bumper deep in mud this spring either.

Wow. So glad that I don't live in corrosion/salt country. I wouldn't even want to own a car in those conditions - or certainly nothing that I liked anyway.

It's not that bad, for rust, it's not like the seashore where everything rust from the air.

That's why every single bolt I've ever removed gets antiseize and then coated in a fluid film on top of my once per year krown spray.

The corrosion on cars around here is brutal. Toyota's seems fariyl resilient to it but even those after 10 years have rough undercarriages

I've seen this magical substance fluid film you north Americans have. Its incredible. Sadly they don't sell it on this side of the pond. I don't know why.

I've also seen the krown spray treatment on YouTube. Very impressive. I wish you could get it as an option from the factory for some sort of spray on rust proofing like coaltar epoxy, powder coating or POR15. To stop the salt and moisture attacking the metal in the first place.
