    Yea, I saw that DIY. Still looking for one where the tool isn't used. I am going "old school" on her. If for no other reason than to prove it can be done.

    yeah!! that's good! And I'll take that chance to bleed my brakes too! Didnt want to because I did that 10k miles ago at 203k but might as well get crazy while I'm in there. And they're not expensive here... I can get a new one for $50 with a lifetime warranty! Either way, i think i'll park the car. I actually found another DIY if you're interested! http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=663391

    good news is a caliper replacement is an easy 30 min DIY.

    hmmm... yeah i just stopped by my local indie after work and he said its probably the caliper!! SOB! now that's going through my rear brakes!! I think I'm going to park the car for the next few days till I can get it fixed! Not that its really an option but i only changed my brakes about 3000 miles ago. it'd suck to have to do them over just because I didnt get to a repair in time! I'll look at it later on tonight and see how bad the damage is though!

    I have done nothing more than buy the bearings. It could be your caliper is stuck or rubbing due to a severely worn bearing. But my friend had the worst one I have ever seen and it didn't cause a smell. Weird.

    Hey Smolck, have you managed to work on your wheel bearing yet? I thought my driver's side was the worse one of the two but since yesterday, I'm actually getting a burning smell from my passenger rear. The kind of smell i had when one of my calipers was seizing. what d'you think? You mentioned working on someone's bearing and you had to get a new trailing arm too cuz it was far gone. Could this be the case here?
