Go back and check to see if you have tighten up all your bolts. if not the clunk is commimg from the pressure foe the brake booster is putting out is a lot of pressure and if there is one bolt that is not tight when you put your caliber back on, the pressere will tourge and move the caliber and you wil get that clunk sound .....LETS HOPE YOU DIDENT STRIP THE CALIBER THREADS WHEN YOU PUT THE BOLTS BACK IN. ALWAYS BE CAREFUL IN THIS AREA.. ALS CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE CLIPS ON THE BRAKE PADS ARE SUCURE ON THE OUT SIDE CALIBER HOUSING AND THE IN SIDE HOLE OF THE PISTON OF THE CALIBER GOOD LUCK.....

Front wheel bearings


first check the pads have not worn down to metal if they have the disc will have to be replaced , if the disc is in good condition and the pistons are free press them back into the cylinders and then the pads can removed .check the master cylinder does not over flow as the pistons are pushed back. Brake fluid is a paint remover. the wheel bearings don't have to be touched to replace pads. After new pads are fitted the brakes will have pumped to bring the pads out to the disc.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix brake on rear drivers side clunks and lurps if you come too a quick stop but if i slow down as i brake it brakes normally


Try replacing the disc and pads on both of the back brakes. Its good to them at the same time. That should with the lurps and clunks as your pads are probably almost gone.

REplaaced brake pads and spped sensor on 2006 gmc sierra now brakes are spongie at times and have bled them.


DEPENDS WHAT PROCEDURE YOU USE TO REPLACE THEM.IF YOU PUSHED THE CALIPER PISTONS IN WITHOUT OPENING THE BLEEDER AND USING A **** CLOSED THE BRAKE HOSES YOU MANAGED TO SENT BACKWARDS THE FLUID INTO THE MASTER CYLINDER WHERE IS THE POSSIBILITY TO CAUSE THE SEALS ROLLING IN AND ARE NOT HOLDING PRESSURE. THE OTHER REASON IS EITHER YOU NEED TIME UNTIL THE BRAKES BED ON THE DISCS SURFACES.

Changed front brake pads now brakes are spongy


If the brake discs (US=rotors) were anything less than perfect then some sponginess is to be expected, but if the discs were heavily scored or worn they should have been replaced or refaced on a lathe (as long as they have sufficient remaining wear left to allow for this). It takes up to around 250 miles to fully bed in a new set of pads to a worn disc and until then the brakes will not be fully efficient. Hard braking should be avoided and the key to bedding in correctly is to brake earlier than usual and apply them more lightly than normal. This prevent glazing of the high points on the pad which will reduce braking efficiency and also slow or even prevent the pads from fully bedding in.

If the sponginess does not soon start to reduce or is more than a slight effect, then you have a different fault and will need to try bleeding the brake lines. Air should not have got in during a routine pad swap though so if any is present it suggests that the seals in the calipers are faulty and further investigation will then be a matter for urgent attention.

I hope that my reply has been of use to you and that you only have to bed the pads in for the problem to disappear. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Change brake pads


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!!!

Need help changing brake pads and routers on 2003


Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
    1. Remove or disconnect the following:
    2. Front brake caliper guide pin bolts
    • Brake caliper by slowly sliding it up and off the adapter and brake rotor. Support the caliper out of the way with a strong piece of wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose or damage to the brake hose will result.
    1. If necessary, compress the caliper piston into the bore using a C-clamp. Insert a suitable piece of wood between the C-clamp and caliper piston to protect the piston.
    2. Outboard disc brake pad from the caliper by prying the brake pad retaining clip over the raised area on the caliper. Slide the brake pad down and off the caliper.
    • Inboard disc brake pad from the caliper by pulling the brake pad away from the caliper piston until the retaining clip on the pad is free from the caliper piston cavity
  • To install:
    1. Be sure the caliper piston has been completely retracted into the piston bore of the caliper assembly. This is required when installing the brake caliper equipped with new brake pads.
    2. If equipped, remove the protective paper from the noise suppression gaskets on the new disc brake pads.
    3. Install or connect the following:
      • New inboard disc brake pad into the caliper piston by pressing the pad firmly into the cavity of the caliper piston. Be sure the new inboard brake pad is seated squarely against the face of the brake caliper piston.
      • Outboard disc brake pad by sliding it onto the caliper assembly
      • Brake caliper assembly over the brake rotor and onto the steering knuckle adapter
      • Caliper guide pin bolts and torque to: 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) on 2002–04 models or 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm) on 2005 models
      • Front. Apply the brake pedal several times until a firm pedal is obtained.
    4. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add fluid as necessary. Road-test the vehicle.

    For the rotors:

    1. Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
    2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.

    How do you change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Honda Civic Ex.


    There is a special tool to press the rear brake caliper back in on you vehicle. You can "borrow" it from Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts. Basically because of the parking brake, you have to press the caliper back in and at the same time screw it in. I know that might sound confussing but when you see the tool they will loan you, it will make sense. It's pretty easy to do with the right tools. I have however taken the hard route before and used a C clamp and pair of needle nose to get it worked out. Hope this helps. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

    The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
