SOURCE: Need diagram for Mazda b4000 brake drum assembly

Okay, then you have what you need. Just take the drum off of the other side and use it as a reference. You are going to have a hard time trying to find a diagram. The Hayes and others are just general pictures and not necessarily what is on your specific vehicle. I do not have that particular diagram myself.
Please remember to rate this fix.

SOURCE: mazda rear brake pad replacement

I had the same issue when I replaced mine. I can't say it is the 100% correct solution but it did work for me. Or course there is a specialty tool for the job, but I used a needle nose pliers and got in the two dimples on the piston face. You have to then push quite hard and screw it in clockwise. One of them I had to back out and in but it did work in the end. The fact they are so hard to do is probably related to the how soon my rear brakes went out (about 40K miles). Hopefully you got it, otherwise good luck. I just had to keep messing with it and it eventually came in. Also, I think if you fully extended the piston and wore the pads to metal that may also play a role in the difficulty getting the piston re-set. Once you get it going, it will pull right in as you turn it clockwise.

SOURCE: change rear brake pads?

If you have done the front, the back should be the same, if you have all wheel disc brakes. If you have drum brakes, then it's a bit different, but not too hard. Let me know if you have Drum Brakes in the back. When it comes to drum brakes, it's best to use a book with written and visual directions. I promise it's not as hard as it looks. Once you've done one side you'll see how less complicated it really is, compared to how it looks. If you can, purchase a book ( I prefer a CHILTONS) as it is more descriptive in directions. If you cannot, let me know and I will do my best to walk you through it. I will also look online and give you the URL.

Try to get a copy of parts schematic from the Mazda dealer for the rear brake parts . Check on line to see if that diagram is available on free download. Check the aftermarket brake spares to see if you can get a copy. Or buy a workshop manual for your car.from a auto spares shop.

Just changed rear brake pads on 05 mazda 6. now

This is normal and you need to keep pumping the brakes till they reset there self. Once the brake peddle have reset there self and is firm, check the brake fluid level again and add brake fluid if low. After brakes have reset there self, go for a test drive around the block and check the parking brakes. Good luck.

The handbrake doesn't work on my recently bought 1997 Mazda MX5. The garage (non Mazda specialist) says it needs new calapers, brake pads and discs. Is that right?

Maybe, but probably not. If all those things were messed up, you'd also have trouble with the brakes under normal driving conditions.

You don't need a Mazda mechanic to work on your brakes, but you should find another garage and at least get a second opinion.

Miata brakes are very easy to work on -- not much harder than changing a tire. If you're up for it, get a Chilton's or Haynes manual from your local library or auto parts place and dive in. It's straightforward to inspect them yourself, and even replace your own pads with simple tools.

No rear brakes and handbrake all the way up

Whenever you change pads, you must always pump the pedal several times to get the calipers to take up any excess space between the pad and rotor. You'll fill it in the pedal as they pump up.

Brake Problem

hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
