My neighbor in coastal central Maine (Tony) has a sticking RF caliper on his '02 Dually F-350 diesel truck. He pulls a 35' 5th wheel trailer. The rotor is warped. He had a caliper stick several years ago and Ford said it was "rocks" in the caliper. He also has had work done to the brakes recently.
My rig, a Class A MH on a Work Horse (WH) W-22 chassis, has a second NTSB recall ongoing now because of similiar problems. Our WH Bosch calipers have phelonic pistons swelling from water contamination in the brake fluid.
My question for our forum members is this-
Do Ford products have these plastic caliper pistons installed in them resulting in similiar problems? If not, is his problem an isolated case? I recommended an immediate fluid flush and fluid replacement.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
