Bolt for brake pads

I think I know the answer for this but just want it reconfirmed, with the rear brake pads, to undo the bolt to get them out, do you turn the bolt towards the front of the car or to the rear? Mine are on tight has and couldn't tell if I was turning the bolt the right way.

Yes its up. sometimes those bolts freeze in there so you might have to use a breaker bar to get more leverage

then put it back in reverce of taking apart(dont forget when you have put it back together press the brake peddle a couple of times then top up the brake fluid in the reservare in between the recarmended lines on the reservare.
Hope this helps,good luck,its quite a strate forwould job.

How do you change brake disks and pads on a golf tdi 1.9


hi to start with make sure the brake fluid reservoir filler cap is removed this is important to do!, then loosen the wheel off this is the wheel you are starting with do not take nuts all the way off, jack up car, then remove wheel, get a flat head screw driver or leaver bar then push the old pads back away from the disk ( can be hard and slow but make sure they go all the way back ) then, at the rear of the caliper there should be 2 internal allen key bolts i think these are 5mm or 7mm, undo them and then remove the caliper from its frame, hang it out the way on a piece of string or something so as not to damage the flexi pipe, on the frame that you removed the caliper there should be 2 hex bolts i think these are 17mm or 19mm, undo these and remove the frame, looking at the front of the disk itself, you should see a in-bedded phillips screw undo this ( a impact driver might be handy to do this if rusted ) and the brake disk should just pull off the hub, fitting is obviously the reverse, NOTE!!!! after refitting the pads, be sure to press the brake peddle down very slowly a bit at a time as not to create an air block in the caliper....hope this helps please vote thanks..

After changing the brake pads my brake pedal goes to the floor. I tried to pump the brake, but it did not seem to work. When I changed the pads I took the bolt out of the brake line to the caliper to...


you need to check the fluid level is correct and that you have tightend the bolts to the caliper ,you have an air lock in the system by the sound of things you need to find the bleed screw on all four brakes and undo each one starting with the one furthest away from the brake master cylinder so start with passenger rear an so on have some one pump the brake on each screw you undo and tighten once you have the fluid coming through on each one you should then get your pedal back

Removal of brake calipers and pads on 1992 xj6 jaguar


Hi Jasa

Unless you are mechanically competent, I would not advise you carry out this procedure yourself, but leave it to the professionals.

If you are mechanically minded, and competent, the pads are relatively easy to replace, as follows.

Jack up the vehicle and put on stands, if you don´t have access to a hoist?

Remove wheels, and open the hood, put some kitchen roll around the brake fluid reservoir, to catch any excess brake fluid, when you push back the brake caliper pistons, if it´s been overfilled.
On the front brake caliper's, you are best to put in a little lever between pads and disc, and ease back the piston to fully retracted, unless you have a small G clamp which will do the same job when caliper is adrift.

Remove the 2 x 13mm caliper securing bolts and swing off the caliper, and support with a piece of wire, don´t just let it dangle on the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and sensor wire, check the caliper piston dust cover for splits, and clean caliper, housing, etc, and disc, with brake cleaner.

Fit the new brake pads to the caliper, and refit with 2 new securing bolts with blue lock tite, (normally supplied with the B/Pads.)

The rear caliper´s are pretty much the same as the front, although you can just undo the top bolt and swing the caliper back, but I usually remove both, for ease of cleaning, and inspection.

After rear caliper´s and pads and sensor wire, and new bolts are fitted, pump the brake pedal with the ignition on, and just run around, and check there are no leaks from the caliper pistons.
Check the fluid level, and lower with suction syringe if necessary.

By the way, 1. When did you last change your brake fluid ?
2. Adjust your front wheel bearings end float ?

You could do this now before you fit the wheels.?

Let me know if you wish the details for that too ?

Good luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please !

John.





Then refit wheels, drop down the car,

1999 nissan quest brake pad replacement


Remove wheel & tire,
remove 2 torx bolts that go from the inside to the outside of the vehicle. They are on the inner side of the brake caliper.
lift the caliper out of the rotor.
remove the brake pads.
To install, you must first squeeze the caliper piston back inot its bore. Do this slowly to prevent damage to the piston. You are forcing excess brake fluid back into the master cylinder reservoir. Slow constant pressure will get the job done. Use a large c clamp or a wooden hammer handel if that's all you have.
Fit the new brake pads in the calipers and slide the assembly back over the rotor.
install the 2 torx bolts, size 40? head I think.
You are done.
If rotors are scored bad, replace them too.
