Well that's the problem, I'm not there to see and diagnose myself. I'm 12 hours away at work. So I'm just going by the info she can give me over the phone. I was hoping someone has tried a quick fix and could let me know if it held up for awhile, so that her dad doesn't waste his time working on it tomorrow. Oh well, he is going to pull the wheel and look at the caliper tomorrow and I will go from there.
