Hi, there. My EF Fairmont is giving me similar problems. The front disc calipers won't release. I've tried lubing the guide pins and bleeding. It seems the piston doesn't return when the pedal is released. Any tips? (BTW, just got the Haynes manual. It's so-so, not as good as the one for my Sierra, tho')

sounds like the piston it se;f is seizing in side the caliper. the whole caliper has to be pulled apart cleaned, a touch of rubber grease or anti-seize wont go astray either. its not hard when you think about it
