OK so ive had my 03 regal now for a few years, about 3 mons ago the lower driver side Caliper Bracket Bolt mysteriously fell out. I replaced it. Then That one fell out. Replaced it again, now for the third time, its come out. Now ill say this, i dont know why but i didnt think of using locktite before. When i install the new one that will be a given but my question is this....

Is there/could there be some underlying reason this is happeneing now?

It was my understanding that these bolts go in and then almost never are removed. Why do they keep coming out? Im certain that they were fully install the previous 2 times (except using the locktite). So what gives?

Locktight will work but make sure the threads are still in good shape and the bolt fits somewhat snug. Clean all the rust off mating surfaces so they are perfectly flat when reassembled and torque those bolts to "spec". That will do it............. Jake L.

I've had the bolt on the pass side come out and the caliper started grinding on the inside of the rim. And it happened again with my C5 brakes same side same bolt, I used some locktite and haven't had a problem since.
