SOURCE: how to replace 2004 mazda 6 brake pads

Does the caliper move around if you try to lever it away from the disc? Are all the bolts definitely removed? Often it is just that the pads needs to be pushed back a bit so they will clear the lip on the disc. Try putting a screwdriver on lever bar between the inner pad and the disc and pushing the brake piston back a bit, that may free it up to clear the lip. Check that the caliper slides move freely when you get the caliper off, if not remove and clean / regrease them.

SOURCE: rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding

Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

Loringh Hope this helps Good Luck PS Please leave a rating if Appropriate Thanks

SOURCE: Removing the front brake rotor on a 1998 Mazda Protege

You do not have to remove the big center nut. You might have to tap on it with a hammer to get it off. If there is anything solid near it to pry against (don't pry against the dust shield) try that too. If none of this helps you can try heating it near the center. You should be able to get it off without heating it but it is possible that that is what you will have to do.

SOURCE: how to adjust caliper for rear brakes on a Mazda Protege Es.

yep, this is what u do. i read that this controls hand break and you need to completely loosen that using hex (3mm) key. BUT, when u tighten it back up, u need to unscrew it about 1/8th, VERY important, or ur pads will be rubbing way too much against the rotor. I actually had to do about 1/2 the turn to make the wheel spin w/out too much pressure.

SOURCE: I want to change brake pads on my 03 Mazda Protege

Some calipers have a bolt holding the hand brake mechanism to the body of the caliper. hold the mechanism with a spnner or If yours dont simply lever the mechanism with a bar or long screw driver. Place a pair of lock pliers/ mole grips on the cable(not too tight or you'll fray/damage the cable) then remove the cable from the caliper. When you get the pads out use a screw driver or wind back tool to reset the caliper travel or you will damage the caliper or lose the hand brake altogether.

It's your disk pad wear indicator warning you of imminant replacement of pads . They ground electrically thru contact in brake pads and require attention. If light goes out it's not a level problem and cheap replacement .

Madza protege 1998 front brakes making grinding noise when brakes applied , changed brake pads last week


You would need to apply some adhesive to the back of the brake pads.
This is common practice regarding disc brakes.
Quite a few brands are sold in most autoparts stores, and you should ask the clerk to show you some disc-brake noise reduction adhesives.
Once you get one of these adhesives, jack up the car again, and remove those pads. Follow direction as written on the adhesive's package.

Brake Pad Replacement


Are you talking about the rear brakes? It's tricky because there is a bolt directly behind the piston that MUST be opened first. The gear inside, after opening that bolt, must be loosened with a hex key to retract the piston so that you can remove/replace the pads

BRAKES ON FRONT 2002 PROTEGE 5 MAZDA


When I change my front brakes, I use a "C" clamp to slowly push the piston back in. (You can get them for a few dollars at Wal-Mart, etc.) Make sure you open the brake fluid reservoir while compressing them, as the fluid level will rise; but don't leave the reservoir open too long, as brake fluid will absorb water from the air.
For the parking brake, I'm not sure. I think the parking brake often works off of the rear brakes, so changing the pads should have helped there. Maybe air in the lines? Do you have any trouble with "soft" or "mushy" brakes when you use them? If so, you might want to bleed the system, to get any air out - it can be dangerous.
