Tap the wheel centre sharply with a hammer whilst having someone try drive forward to shock them free, otherwise take the wheel off and gently tap the caliper body itself. Check the handbrake mechanism is releasing properly and that the arms the cable attaches to on the calipers releases fully.

SOURCE: What is this loud rubbing sound I am hearing when I am driving?

Your pads NORMALLY will ride on the disks,  they will NOT normally make any rubbing sound.
I doubt your calipers are stuck unless you drove into the seawater at Daytona or something similiar. To test,  chock rear wheels, jack up  front of car, spin L and then R wheels by hand,  if they spin whthout much effort, your front caliper pistons are probably fine.   Flip car around and repeat for other end;~)
You may find one of the rear wheels has a grinding feeling and some play if you grab it top and bottom and try to wiggle perpendicular to the line of travel.   If this is the case you need a wheel bearing,  could be on the front bearing,  but my jetta experience says rear bearing (twice).
DO NOT BUY CALIPERS unless you know they are bad, they shouldn't be bad and they are expensive.
Good luck and post us back

G clapm and water pump pliers needed,slight compression on G clamp which is on back /piston slight pressure applied then turn the piston with the waterpump pliers ,better with two people one holding it and keeping pressure on G clamp whilst the other turns piston.Yes i know their is a special tool for this and every motor has its own style of tool but mine does all .

I just changed the brakes on my 2010 tundra and now they are sticking what can I do to fix this??


I assume they are disc brakes your having the problem with.It is more than likely the disc brake calipers,or brake hoses.when the brake caliper locks down and wont release,brake the bleeder screw loose on the brake caliper,if the brake caliper releases then the problem will be the brake hose.If the brake caliper does not release,then it is the brake caliper that is the problem.

Brake caliper stuck


Check to see that the parking brake mechanism at the caliper is actually releasing . If this is not the issue then you will likely need to open the bleeder and attempt to pry the old seized caliper off to replace it. You will have to bleed the caliper you replace and possibly the opposite side afterwards.

It would seem that your calipers are not releasing. When you depressed them were they hard going back, did they go back in all the way? You should grease the slide pins on a VW anytime you do brakes.You may end up needing new calipers also.

Front brake will not release all the way -drags . have already replaced caliper.


The brake line may be corroded and isn't allowing the brake fluid to flow back to the caliper. I used to see it on old Volvo's and VW's. Remove the line and test it with compressed air in both directions. Replace the steel lines and flex lines to the front brakes. Don't just do one side.

hi from uk the rear brake calipers are auto adjust and so to reset the pistons back into calipers you need to rewind clockwise the piston whilst pushing piston back there is a tool for this purpose which does job in minutes however!! you can improvise if you have an old socket and hacksaw ? you can look at piston and see there are two slots on it? if you cut away an old socket so left with prongs to fit these slots then fit t bar and short extension to socket then you can push and turn piston back make sure slots are in line as to able fitting of new pads one has notch on rear face to insert in piston slot this also works for other models with rear calipers ? cheaper than the tool at £40 to £60 inthe uk dependant on makers hope this helps/inspires you ?
