    Brake Caliper Bolt

    While i was driving my car tonight i noticed it was making a clunking sound followed by the brake caliber grinding against the front passenger side rotor,i knew what it was because it happened to me on the driver side but thank God i wasnt going fast & i was close to my storage,my question is what makes these bolts come loose like that? Oh yeah i have a 2000 WS6

    same thing happened with my 95 formula I used to have. I thought it was a fluke since I had never talked to anyone who had it also happen to them. Not sure what causes it though, maybe someone removed it and didnt torque it down enough idk. Try some threadlocker too.

    TLS_Addict had the same problem on his Z. Guess I'll double check all my caliper bolts over the winter.
