I had the same problem with the rear drum brakes. The main problem that I ran into is that there is a pin in the original brake shoes. When you go to an auto parts store they give you brake shoes for your drum brakes, and say they're the right one's. They don't come with the pin though. How I got around this was by going to a mechanic shop, and having them look up the part, and getting the part #. The one's that most auto stores will give you aren't the right shoes. You need to find somewhere to go to get the right part #. The correct shoes come with the pin already in them. I hope this helps.

There is a grinding sound when I press the brakes on my Hyundai 2010. What might be the problem?


Hi,
If it is a grinding noise then you have a problem with the brake pad area, it may have a stone caught in this area. Or it may have worn front brake pads.

Should the center spindle nut and 2 torgued phillip head screws be removed to replace front brake rotor on 1999 honda accord lx


will try to help. 1st remove the wheel, then remove the 2 caliper bolts that hold the brake caliper on. after removal of brake caliper, [it should just pull off after the 2 bolts are removed] replace the brake pads[be sure to apply anti squeal lube to the outer side of the pads..not the pad itself,the one not contacting the brake rotor] install the pads, the you will need a C clamp to push the brake caliper pistons back into the caliper. i've used this installation easily. use the old pad ,place it against the caliper piston,then apply the C clamp and push the caliper piston back into the brake caliper, then the brake caliper will slide back over the new pads easily, no need to bleed the brakes if you use this solution. replace the brake caliper bolts, then go to next side and repeat the process. after the replacement of the front brake pads,pump the brakes with engine running!!! it's really a simple process. be sure the brake pads are facing the brake rotors with the [pads] facicing the rotors. no metal facing metal. easy! if you have added brake fluid recently, do not be alarmed if you see fluid coming out of the brake master cylinder,when you use the C clamp to collaspe the brake caliper back into the recessed position. [as always when you have to add brake fluid to the brake master cylinder,it only means your brakes are wearing naturally. if you have a vibration in front wheels or steering wheel when braking, you have a brake rotor or both front brake rotors that need replacement with your brakes also. hope this helps and as always, please get a second opinion if you have doubt. an expert will be happy to help. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Brake squeal


You, Probably will, Brake Squeal is NOT a new problem.
Disc brake's have been Squealing since, They, became
factory installed on chevrolet in 1971. Before, that they,
were a option. In 72 they even had a bulleton how, to
FIX it. And, no it didn't work.
With That said, Any time you replace Brake pads you,
should always re-surface the Rotors.
Why? First you may start to notice a pulsation as the
pads ware (sometimes! ) The best way to avoid, brake
squeal is to manchine the Rotors put, the blue membrain
sealent on the back side of the pads. And hope that works!!
Some brakes Pads squeal JUST SQUEAL??
You, Could do the same Brake job the same as you did
this one and, they may NOT Squeal.WHY, I WISH I NEW. They
sell all types of STUFF to stop Brake noice DON'T waste your $$.

Wat tool do i need to remove front and back brake calipers so i can replace brake pads on a audi a4 2002 2.0 se


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!! For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper. 3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease). 4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier. 5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston. 6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary! 7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing. 8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward). 9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier. 10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm. 11. Install both caps. 12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!! Please Rate my Response! Thanks!

Hi, I have had my front Calipers replaced on my MR2 but my brakes are making a noise when i'm braking. i have taken it back to the garage who have said my brake pads are to small. am i right in thinking...


They did not replace the pads when the did the calipers ?? Is that what you are saying ??
If they didnt - they should have..
Makes no sence to have the calipers out & not change the pads..

They are full of it.. I buy my Toyota pads from the dealer - do it my self - and they work just fine.. I got 50-k on the current last set & they are still good..

If they DID replace the pads & they squeel when you break - my guess is they put cheep pads in.. Cheep pads do that..

You need a ceramic pads or semi ceramic pad.. They last allot longer and make no noise..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Brake problem


Hi Tora, Go to the back brakes. This is where the prob could be. But with you bleeding the brakes, the peddle has went beyond its normal travel causing the rubbers in the master cylinder to get messed up. Happens too often! Replace the master cylinder 'after' you had a good look at the back! Frankster016

Replacing front brake pads on Nissan 2000 Hardbody model 2000


pull the wheels off .undo brake fluid cover .On the back of rotor there are 2 long pins that you have to remove to pull the caliper off.After the caliper is off pull the old brake pads off ,remembering which way they came off.Now with either a large C-Clamp ,or large channell lock pliers compress the large round metal part that pushes against the back of brake pad.The idea is this,your new pads wont fit on the rotor unless you compress this part ALL the way down,that is why you took the fluid cover off earlier,so the back pressure can go back into the brake fluid reservoir .Once you have this part pushed in ,install the 2 pads and put the whole thing back over and on the rotor .Last of all put the long pins back on tight, put the wheel on ,and now do the other side.............Good luck ! Patience is Key !!
Please rate this !! Thank You!
