My Ford Endeavour 3.2 Titanium: 90000 km service update & brake repair

I am still clueless how without any external impact the caliper pin got bent on one side which resulted in excessive wear of a single brake pad as opposed to even wear of both sides.

BHPian A.G. recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Tenth service experience:

The tenth service of 90,000 kms was done in May 2022. The service bill was Rs. 20,192/- and for the first time Shell Oil was not available, instead Mobil Super 3000 X1 was used. Apart from the usual inclusions of Oil Filter, Diesel Filter, Air Filter and some other minor aggregates with Alignment and Balancing, the increased price was due to bent brake caliper pins which had damaged the brake pads as well. Also, due to the debris which had accumulated between the radiator and condenser, both were removed and cleaned along with the fan and intercooler. Since it was already 90K kms on the odo, the coolant was completely replenished with new for peace of mind.

After initial round of cleaning, some debris is still stuck:

Caliper pins (one is lightly bent):

Second from bottom is almost gone while the one on bottom is almost new. The pair on top had worn out evenly:

New brake caliper pins installed:

A big shout out to the team at Harpreet Ford Sahibabad for actually being able to pinpoint the issue of uneven brake pad wear and for arranging a ‘slow moving’ part (the caliper pins) from another dealer overnight.
