we drove the car to dinner tonight...about a 15-20 min drive each way. Got back home and I could detect the smell and went straight to the front passenger wheel and the smell was definitely stronger than under the hood. So I guess I should be making prep for a brake job...which is cool since I wanted to paint calipers and add performance rotors anyway! LOL


Thanks guys for the troubleshooting expertise  ;)  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

When you've got all disassembled have a close look at the flex hose, if it has collapsed internally that will cause a clot in that line & the fluid pressure won't release properly resulting in caliper drag.


If that one has done so don't overlook the others as well.

Thanks for the info...luck for me while I was cleaning out the garage yesterday, I uncovered a set of braided stainless brake lines! I don't recall if I bought them for the 2001 GP or the Bonneville but they should serve the purpose. Woot! :dance:  :cool:
