I have recently noticed an issue with one rear calliper -
First off all the callipers are recently new - along with rotors pads etc.

I was changing the brake fluid and bleeding the lines - testing the feel etc.

The passenger rear brake does not have the same clamping power ?? I was able to turn the wheel with a wrench while the brake was held with normal pressure.

The other brake lock up - as I expected. I tried the hand brake and a few variations - there is a difference.

Question is: is this the proportional valve (original) or is it in the calliper?

In looking at the manual - I thought could the travel on the adjust rod be backed in to much? rear brake is very different. One time it seemed the hand brake did lock up the brake very well?

While driving the car I can not tell the difference - but there must be a reason

Any ideas would help.

Never mind - the calliper was binding on slide bolts.

All is well other than I need a whole new unit. :(
