Bolt

I was cleaning my wheels today and noticed a bolt sticking out of front caliper from top of caliper but on the bottom side of caliper. I was able to pull it out it has no threads but looks like it should be held in with a fodder pun. I can only
Push it in so great sticks out about half an inch wonít go in any further. What is this bolt for? Itís about 3 in long.

That's normal, one end should be tapered with a groove, other end rounded...part of holding pad to caliper, that's normal, can move mine with play in and out.

Re: Bolt

I donít think itís normal other side in good the passenger side I can easily pull it all the way out the drivers side is flush passenger side wonít go in all the way.

Re: Bolt

A photo would really help to identify what your talking about. Good idea not to drive it until you know everything is OK. Almost sounds like the bolt that holds the caliper onto the wheel assembly is possibly backing out. They do move in and out some as the caliper compresses the pads and relaxes between each press of the brake pedal.
