Thanks to everyone for the ideas
I ended up becoming frustrated and taking the calipers off. From there
it wasn't too difficult to simply grab them and push til my fingers were
a little sore. Did the trick pretty easily. I was a little low on
brake fluid, so I ended up about even as per the fluid flowing up to the
reservoir. Best part: no squeaks!
Now onto the bad news: the ignition light is still coming on. I checked
the voltage at the battery, and I have 12.6 with the car off, and 12.5
with it on. When I turn on the lights, I get 12.4 or 12.3. The light
glows dimly, getting brighter at lower revs. The car always starts, and
the alternator plug is now secure, so what's the culprit? I have been
through so many alternators, I would simply like to get this one
solved. Any ideas or things to check would be greatly appreciated.
