Hi you need to find out who the brake company is that your car used on your car a few ways you can find out get the chassi number off your car and ask the main dealers what type of system was used if there is only one then they should be able to tell which pads fit as the only difference in pads would be is what they used on certain models which the chassi number will tell them you can also look at your master cylinder see if the companys names on that if you can see your brake calipers the name will be on them best of hunting yates210456

WHAT kind of brakes are on front?

Pending on the Yr Make & model, look through rim. If you see a flat/ shiny, silver surface & 1/2 of it has a brake pad & "caliper" holding them in place you have front disc pads Most newer models have disc pads all around or discs in the front & drum brakes in the rear pend on the year. ck w/ dealer about type of as in, ceramic, metallic or semi-metallic.PS If you don't see brakes pads at all just a steel round "DRUM" (it's called) you have drum brakes. Usually on light trucks & higher. Most today are pads w/ ceramic or semi metallic. Call the dealer with the VIN #. Good Luck Frank M

I had to replace my left front brakes at 27,000 miles I was told the caliper was sticking and that made the brake wear out prematurely. I of coursr had to have both front brakes. Since then I the brakes...

I'm sorry to hear you are having this problem you shouldn't be after brake pad replacement .
This sounds more like the vehicle was in some kind of accident front end and it bent the axle or the cv joint is damaged .
Look at the brake pad the next time you have it repaired the ware on the pad should be even so the ware part on the pad should be flat if one side is thicker then the other it would be noticeable it means the axle is not spinning true its wobbling .Try taking it to a different shop something else is wrong and its making this happen

Change back Brake pads on renualt megane 2

1. Hand Brake ON , loosen wheel bolts to hand tight, jack up front wheel , chock back wheels , put axle stands/blocks in place (just in case) .

2. Remove wheel. Disconnect pad wear wire , it pulls out of the connector.

3. Remove lower caliper bolt (at the back of caliper at the bottom) , need a 13mm ring spanner for head of bolt and 17mm to stop it spinning

4. Use a screw driver between the back of the outer pad and the caliper to prise the caliper back away from the back of outer pad. Pivot caliper upwards to rest on top of wheel disc (good idea to tie it up with some wire) .

5. Remove and discard old pads , clean out with wire brush and soft brush , don't breath in to much of the dust its nasty.

6. Fit new pads (remember pad wear sensor on inside pad), make sure that the pads are in contact with the disc , and the top of them sitting flush with the rim of the disc, don't force them into this position they should naturally sit there.

7. Lower caliper down into position, you may need to push back the piston further in order to make room for the new pads , do this with you hands or a small piece of timber. Keep an eye on the brake fluid resivoir , your pushing fluid back in so if its over full it may spill over. Refit lower caliper bolt (Renault say to replace this each time), and tigthen. Reconect pad wear sensor.

8. Pump brake pedal until normal brake pressure returns.

9. Remove axle stand/blocks , refit wheel and bolts , lower jack and tighten up wheel bolts.

Excessive wear on 1997 s type jags rear brakes

Unfortunatly this is normal, nothing can be done about it. Get pads checked every 15,000 miles to save discs.

Front brakes are dragging on the 97 oldsmobile pedal has endplay before the rod engages with the master cyclinder. I replaced the master cylcinder adn flushed the front brake lines.

Try bleeding the front brakes a little and see if they are holding pressure. If they are, it could be an adjuster problem, or fault with the master cylinder.
If there is no real pressure when bleeding - It's most likely a siezed piston or siezed caliper.
I presume the Brake pads and Discs are the correct type - as there are often many different models fitted, so identification is imperitive. Some are a few MM above others. Worth a double check.

Brake pads worn, making audible noise.

No but you need someone that can do a COMPLETE brake job. This means the rotors should be turned or machined to take out warps. You will hear all kinds of suggestions as to brake pads but I use a non-JAG pad but not ceramic. While ceramics have better stopping power they will also warp the disk faster and so you will not have as long lasting brake job
