Trailer brake issue. On way to powell

Recommended Posts

NHolladay

I had my caliper rip off the mounting plate on the axle.  One bolt came loose and the other then ripped out.  There are two identical holes on the other side.  Can I switch the mounting side and be OK.  I am in the middle of a 800 mile trip to Powell.  Is it OK to run the caliper on the front side of the rotor?.  Any thoughts or experience would help.  Alternative is another 600 miles with no brakes.

You can run it on either side, front or back. I would match the other side after your trip. Have a great rest of your trip.

No issue flipping the caliper, but if you gotta bleed the system, the bleeder has to be on the top while you bleed it.  Then just mount it back up.

Sweet bleeding is no problem.  Glad to hear I can flip it.  Thank you guys so much for the quick response.  I can be on the road in an hour
