ball bearing in brake caliper?

Recommended Posts

When I was removing front hubs, stubs and calipers to redo suspension rubbers and ball joints a wee ball bearing dropped out of the passenger side caliper when I removed the brake line. 


No ball bearing in the drivers side caliper and no mention of them in my workshop manual so I pulled the brake lines off another set of front calipers I have in the shed to do a little applied learning... no ball bearings in either of the front calipers.


Yeah, nah?

One of those "unexplainable" head fk moments... But maybe at some stage, for some reason, somebody mashed one into the flared seat to block that caliper off?


I have come across some jobs where people have blocked off an air line going to a brake chamber on a truck, a "get you home" measure strictly and probably not a good idea in these days of transport safety regulation
