I have a 2016 explorer. I noticed weird noise coming from my brakes. I took off the front caliper and noticed something weird. I'm not sure if it's normal or not. I noticed the caliper had two pistons. I stepped on the brakes and noticed that only one piston came out forward while the other pistons stayed back. Is that normal for only one piston to press the brake pads? or are both pistons supposed to press the brake pad?

Hello, my name is Teresa Ley. I'm aspiring to be a female mechanic. More specifically motorcycle mechanics and fabrication. I've been working as the only female AAA field Technician in LA and OC for the last 13 months until my job was unexpectedly ripped away from me with no reason provided! I loved my job with a burning passion and instead of looking to get even I just want to get better. Was hoping to reach out to other female mechanics to hear their journeys and the obstacles they've had to over come. Maybe even point me in the right direction? Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank You :) email: teresa.ley@outlook.com phone: 310-857-0937
