Well, the disk brake problem has been identified -- not by me but by the shop after Lynn requested that we escalate the issue to a higher authority.  Their analysis -- there were no pads in the caliper (AT ALL). So no spring to push the pistons back into the caliper. How the retaining pin came out is unknown.
A bit embarassed not to have noticed, but i just never imagined that the pads could just fall out and didn't notice -- even though it was very obvious once it was pointed out.   :o
Here's hoping that no more damage to pistons or seals has been done.
