    I am a 2005 ford explorer user here in United Arab Emirates. Kindly help me on current brake problem. Just 2 days ago, I changed my front brake caliper through a local mechanic but after installing the new calipers (L&R), and after doing the standard procedure (e.g. releasing air from the brake system) still there were no brakes. Then the mechanic suggested to change master cylinder, but still the same after fixing a new one. The mechanic again suggested to change the booster, its done but to no avail. In short, new calipers, new master cylinder and new booster but still no brakes.
    Please help me on this since this is my only car and i really need it in my daily travel for work.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Did you bleed the rear calipers as well?

    Are you positive the front calipers were installed on the correct sides? The bleeder valve should be at the top of the caliper, NOT at the bottom.

    Your ABS system could also have air trapped in it, beyond what you let out at the calipers. I believe this needs to be addressed through the PCM using forscan.

    Sounds like you may need a new mechanic.
    Is he a "mechanic", or just a parts changer?
    Shouldn't he be updating you?
