    Brake Caliper Siezed - Car in shop over a month

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Front left brake caliper is seized took it into the shop when I noticed breaking performance was way off.
    It's also in for the mixer door being broke as well. (that lovely ticking noise every single time the car starts)
    They found the driver front caliper to be seized and told me that it is covered under warranty and that this part will be ordered and fixed.

    Car went into the shop around the 5th of October, the vehicle is still at the shop and they cannot provide me an ETA of when they can fix the vehicle.

    2 weeks go by and I decide to call and find out how much longer I will be driving the F150 they gave me. They said that the caliper did not fit, nor does the hole line up or the break line.
    Dealership ordered a few more and then escalate it to Ford Motor Co.
    Dealership told me that Ford told them it was an engineering screw up and that they released a brake caliper that will not work on these vehicles or my 2016 Fiesta ST at least.
    Ford has to re design a caliper from what I was told. Has anybody else heard of Fiesta ST calipers not fitting to their vehicle?

    I called corporate and asked if they can give me an estimated time and they can't answer me either.
    I will be calling my dealership to speak with the Manager and go from there.

    Took the car in for a brake caliper replacement under warranty, they cannot provide a caliper, it could be another few months before I get this fixed.

    I'd look up the part number and go order it myself.

    No, never read of that problem here or elsewhere.

    Have you seen the vehicle? Did an attendant screw up and wreck it and it's waiting for body shop repair?

    The vehicle I have seen twice. It's on a rack with the tire off and the caliper off. It's confirmed there is no damage but they told me the caliper is wrong and have elevated the ticket level to Ford Motor Co which is what is kind of odd.
    I know the vehicle is still there but the caliper being engineered wrong and or manufactured wrong, possibly bad tooling but still. One month to replace a caliper?

    I had my brakes seize up this last spring. Dealer ended up a going through 2 master cylinders, 2 break boosters, a caliper, and finally the ABS control block before getting it working.

    As for the part not being correct...maybe they are ordering a caliper for a regular Fiesta and not a FiST?

    Yep I think they're putting the wrong caliper on this car. Someone doesn't know the difference between a regular Fiesta and a ST. I can order OEM ones off of RockAuto myself.

    I have asked and would have to get the part # but I guess if I was to order a OEM caliper for my vehicle it would not fit. I cannot test due to them having my car still. They told me ford engineered the calipers wrong and I have a feeling them moving from Mexico to China is another thing I wondered about. I can't imagine Ford released a modified caliper update but it was engineered completely wrong... Who the hell knows man.

    Dude, quit fooling around and call a Lemon Law Attorney not the dealer, If you hate your car they will get your money back or another car. My sister got all her money back on a 2 year old SUV because the hands free phone didn't work half the time.
