caliper question...really need help
there are two bolts on the back of the caliper that i removed (dont ask y, long story, long day). neways there on the top of the caliper and when i went to put them back in you could slide in part of the way and after that it just stopped. they were sticking out, and you could not screw them back in. they seem to be holding nothing and i dont kno exactly what these bolts are used for. is something broken? i drove my car back home very carefully because it was only a block away and the brakes seemed to work fine and the bolts were still there when i got home. the weird thing is you can easily pull them out. nebody know wut im talking about? im a lil worried and dont want to be driving my car around unsafely. thanx

here is a picture: http://www.6gc.net/photo.php?file=/...photos/41_2.jpg it would be the bolt right below the green square and to the right of the bottom red circle

The one in the green box holds your brake line in place. I recommend putting it back in, you wouldn't want that brake line to get cut by the tire and be with no brakes.

The one in the red circle it what connects to your struts. I also recommend getting it back in, you need support on that strut.

For the bolt in the green box; Get a plastic zip tie and use it to secure the bracket untill you get to the store to buy a bolt! That way you'll be sure the hose doesn't get cought when U turn the wheel, and the tire doesn't rub a hole in it!! thumbsup
