I put new brake pads on my 98 expedition the brakes bleed out but still dont have brakes do i need to reset the abs?


not sure why you are bleeding brakes just with new pad installation? anyway, since you had calipers off, make sure when reinstalled they were not turned 180 degrees. this would put the bleeders on the bottom instead of the top. bleeders on the bottom will never bleed air from calipers. what was the reason you bled calipers after pad installation?

Rear pisttons on ford 500 will not push in to install rear brake pads


If you have disk brakes, and you cannot fit the new brake pads in the callipers? Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow pressure to escape. Use a large C clamp connecting it to the front and back of the piston. Turn the screw on the clamp to compress the brake piston then release the clamp. The piston will remain compressed allowing you the fit the housing over the new brake pads.

ABS brake light stays on all the time.


Any competent repair shop with a scanner should be able to pull codes from the ABS computer. It is likely a speed sensor or wire.

How to replace rear brake pads on 2004 Jeep Cherokee 4x4


take it to a mechanic....;) I have a 2003 jeep grand cherokee 4 wheel drive V8. there probably is not much difference between year models. frist thing remove the back tire you will see the caliper and rotor. check the rotor if it has deep groves on the front or back you will need to bring it in to have it turned or replaced if it is still smooth it should be ok. remove the caliper by taking the two bolts off the back of the caliper. using a pice of wire hang the caliper so it isn't dangling from the brake line. Now is the time to replace rotor if needed .Get a pair of vice grips crimp off the brake line so any trash in the caliper doesn't get into the brake system (if you let the contaminants get into the brake system it can cause costly repairs to the abs system). open up the bleeder valve most of the time close to where the brake line goes into the caliper and usually has a rubber cap. open bleeder valve, take a c-clamp place on inner brake pad and outside of caliper tighten until caliper is all of the way open close bleeder valve. replace brake pads put caliper back on recommend using lock tight on bolts holding caliper on snug fasteners but do not over tighten, lock tight will keep bolts from backing out. do the other side the same way. pull up emergency brake to and pump brake pedal to adjust brakes. bleed brakes and you are done

When compressing the front brake calipers do you need to relieve the pressure by releasing the bleeder valve or can you just compress piston in slowly so you won't damage the release valve on the abs?


no you dont have to open bleeder,you will not mess anything up i do it all day long, the reason for opening the bleeder is so they say you dont push debris from caliper into abs, but every time you step on the brake and release it fluid is flow in and out of abs, if you feel better by opening bleeder go ahead youll just have to bleed brakes when your done , good luck, hope this is helpful.

05 chevy classic malibu do brakes need to be bled completely to change pads or just enough to compress piston and where is location of bleeder valve


You do not have to bleed them at all. Remove the cap off the master cylinder and you can then compress the caliber to remove the old pads and install new ones. No need to belled unless you replace the master cylinder or a caliber.

ABS light on after replacing the front and rear brake pads .


u will need to check the wheel speed sensors behind the brake rotors to see if they got damaged or disconnected during the brake job, as long as the ABS light is on the Anti-lock brake system is disabled, regular braking without the need of ABS will feel fine.

No....just compress the piston slowly so you don't force the fluid out of the reservoir. The only time you need to bleed the brakes is if you replace a wheel cylinder, hose or get air in the master cylinder....usually by running it too low in fluid level. If you are just changing the pads....no, you don't have to open the bleeder.

I am changing the front breaks. Caliper problems


Hello, I just happen to be doing my breaks too. Open the bleeder port on the caliper and put a flat piece of metal across both pistons and compress them with a C-clamp. When you have them compressed close the bleeder port and remove the clamp and install caliper. You should always compress the caliper piston with the bleeder open especially with ABS brakes. Otherwise you have to reset the ABS. Good luck and remember to add brake fluid.
