2019 Caliper issues

2234 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  BennyRT
I have a 2019 Pacifica sport and when I started to retract the brakes in the LCD screen the caliper wouldn’t retract. The screen told me the caliper was retracted and that was not the case. The screen also mentioned to get out of service mode, press the brake and push the parking brake. So I did so and my entire caliper piston shot out with brake fluid everywhere. I’m not a certified mechanic by any means. I Do however learn fast and need some serious help. This is my family’s only means of transport. Is my caliper done? Do I need a new one? I’ll try and post a picture with this.

Service mode retracts the parking brake actuators so that the rear brakes can be serviced. It doesn't do anything with regard to the hydraulic part of the brake system. You should be able to carefully reassemble the caliper without replacing any parts provided there's no visual damage. You will need to bleed the brake fluid after everything is reassembled. It's also important to note that the rear caliper pistons need to be twisted as they are compressed.
