Why does my brake caliper keep sticking? I need to find out why so I can fix the problem easily.
If you notice that your pads are hard and get stuck in the grooves, it is possible that there is debris build-up in there that needs cleaning, or maybe the shims might be corroded already. If this is the problem, it is not necessary to replace the calipers. You just need to clean them or replace the shims that are faulty. However, if the metal groove is totally worn out, you need to replace the whole caliper assembly to fix the problem. Check your caliper bolts if they are well lubricated so as to avoid the brakes to stick. Remember not to tighten the bolts because these will eventually break off. Brake hose cracks are not so easy to diagnose alone, so you have to ask for the assistance of a qualified mechanic.
I don't know if it's just raining so hard, but my windshield wipers don't seem to effectively wipe the water beads away. Should I replace the wiper blades of my FT800?
If the water beads don't easily go away or don't go away at all, your windshield might have built up residue and grime. It is recommended to clean your windshield thoroughly first before starting to treat it with specialized water repellent product to avoid adding up to the residue. Your Ford FT800 might be exposed to too much dirt and dust lately, and that is probably the reason why it has built up a thick amount of residue already. You may try using a strong glass cleaner available in your favorite auto shop. But if it doesn't do the trick, you may opt to use a wax remover on your windshield. If all of these do not help, you may replace your wiper blades already.
How should I fix a burned-out turn signal bulb? Other drivers keep on yelling at me while driving. Any suggestion to avoid this scenario?
Faulty turn signals will really freak out other drivers, given the fact that you got a huge truck there. You can do this by switching on the signal lever for both left and right turn respectively, and then get out of the car to check if the lights are on. Of course do this on a safe area and not on the road. After diagnosing which side is faulty, replace it with a bulb that is suitable for your vehicle. For old vehicles like yours, you may carefully remove the taillight cover then gently twist the bulb to your right, and then replace the bulb by reversing the process. By this time, the light should already be working. If the light is already fixed, you can now carefully return the taillight cover back in its place. It is also the perfect time to inspect other bulbs to prevent the same problem in the future. If you can afford it, you may replace all the bulbs, but these will sure cost you a lot.
