Question about Cars & Trucks
Was changing the front brake pads and caliper fell out of my hands and the connection to the caliper and high pressure brake hose disconnected. i reconnected it but i dont trust it because i can pull it off by hand and i cant on the other side.
OK I understand your trying to safe a few bucks but your now costing yourself money.Stop what your doing,put all the parts in a box and call a toe truck.You need a mechanic now,its possible to fix what you have done,if it was only the line that is broken (ie the threads are stripped)at little cost. Now the bad news,if the Calliper is stripped your looking a few bucks so STOP now and don't try to drive,you have no brakes you'll kill someone! DON'T DRIVE THIS CAR. I know I said that a few times but I'm concerned.Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes nearly to
I would go with not bled correctly
The booster should hold up with a hard pedal until
you start the engine, then vacuum causes it to move
down when pressing on the brake

The first thing to do is, release the tension on the handbrake, but to compress the cylinder, you need a 'cylinder wind back tool'.
Which is basically like a 'vice' but as you tighten it, it screws the cylinder back in.
That's yer problem solved:)
Remember you need to 're-bed' in the pads, and make sure the rotors don't have to much of a lip on them.

I remember that each caliper is pushed back by "Rollout" after the brakes are pressed. If the caliper is harder to move it my not push back. May have to change O-ring seals on caliper.
Hope this helps.
