    Mine were doing this, and it’s because the rails the rear pads sat on got rusted, so the pads locked in place. I posted pictures of it somewhere on here.

    When you replace them (if you do it yourself) just sand those down and grease them up well.

    I emptied my catch can and did the CRC GDI Valve spray treatment.

    2014EL with 98K miles … in the shop for the day
    -Rear brakes serviced ... pads/rotors, checked, lubed etc. Nice to have brakes back to new condition and everything inspected. OEM hardware & they were still "ok". Shop said on the Expy they do wear unevenly. He almost got a hernia horsing those new Falken Wildpeaks around. Thought the tires were outstanding.
    -Drain & flush cooling system. Guy said he had a hard time purging the OEM fluid. Said old fluid will still work but becomes acidic and good to replace periodically.
    -New snake belt. No issue with it but seemed like a good idea. Will carry old one as spare (snowmobile style). Will also add socket for tensioner, I already carry breaker bar.

    Looking at the bill, they didn't charge me for the serp belt.
    I'll go back tomorrow and correct that.

    Well, the work these guys do is admirable. I've bought pizza for them in the past.
    It's what makes America great. Hard working, honest small business .. supporting families.
    Top quality work. I'm in support of that 100%
