Last fall I noticed a grinding noise from the right front under braking, fast forward to now and I'm looking into the issue. With the front wheels off the ground the left front was free spinning the right front was dragging. Pictures show the condition of the brake pads at each side and the right front rotor. I started some disassembly but could not get the nut off that holds the caliper on with the small wrench I had.
So in the meantime I figure I would order parts, currently thinking new pads rotors and brake lines. Any other suggestions from the experts? Also not sure exactly how the rotors come off but I haven't gotten that far into it yet. I'm not a mechanic but I do change rotors and pads on my other cars. Seems more straight forward compared to this one
Any suggestions or advice is much appreciated, thanks!
PS: Also had right front dragging on my beater 2003 Subaru Legacy last fall if you can believe it. On the Healey I could not at all feel that the brake was dragging while driving but on the Subaru it was very obvious and the car would at times really fight itself to keep going! The Subaru was fixed by replacing the flexible brake line.
