No rotor wear on one side

Hello everyone. My car has been squeaking like a b**ch, so I figured it was the wheel bearing. So I took the tires off one by one, nothing out of the ordinary until I go to the back passenger side. The rotor has no wear on the outside, I mean none, and it is rubbing somewhere (definitely whats causing the squeak). I can feel with my finger that the inside is getting worn, but for some reason the outside isn't. It's only on one tire, and I plan on taking the caliper and pads off today. But before I did, I wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem or has some idea what it could be. Thanks in advance.

Re: No rotor wear on one side

usually, there is no reason for one side to work and the other not to...as they both require both sides to work in order for the pressure to be put on the rotor. clean the little sliding joints and see if it makes it any better. if not, just get a new caliper...also replace the pads and use the anti squeak stuff.

Yea, take it all back apart and lube up the sliders, and the back of the pads with brake grease.

Re: No rotor wear on one side

Thanks for the responses. I took it all apart yesterday, and my caliper on that side is seized. Why it's still working on one side I really don't know, but at least replacing a caliper is easier/cheaper than replacing the bearings.

When your caliper gets seized, the pressure from fluid behind piston still pushes on it a small amount, just not enough to pull other side in.. If that makes any sense to ya.. Either way you are right cheaper and easier than bear gs!

Re: No rotor wear on one side

Same thing happened on my '94. Rear passenger guide pin was seized. Had a machine shop pull it out. Installed new guide pins and I'm good to go. Just bought it 2 weeks ago and working out alot of bugs.
