Brake Caliper/piston Rebuild?

Recommended Posts

I have been experiencing weak braking these days. The rear brake pads in particular do not have full contact with the rotors...leaving partially shiny rotor surface ... this due to piston problem I presume.

Is there any chance the calipers need to be replaced? or just cleaning it would restore its performance?

Could this weak grip the possible cause for the car's tendency to move forward when I turn on the AC or heater? With the AC on, I get nervous when a sudden braking is required. (I don't want to turn off the AC whenever this happens~) :(

Thanks for your feedback in advance.
