you might need to pull two pins out of the caliper and pull the pads out that way with out pulling the caliper off.

SOURCE: emergency brake on 92 Acura Integra sometimes sticks even when

Take the caliper apart and grease the Slide pins. There are two of them. When these get dried out it cause them to stick and not release the brake. When you pull the two halves of the caliper apart there will probably be dust in there. Clean it out and grease them up.

SOURCE: brake pad replacement on 2005 Acura MDX

1. torque on the slide pins is about 25 to 30 ft lbs.
2. torque on caliper bracket to knuckle is 80 to 100 ft lbs
3. get the best pad you can get ,its an Acura . I recommend Bendix import quiet ceramic pads.
4. ceramic = less noise/dust less stopping power
metalics= better stopping power/noisey lots of dust

Changing my brakes and rear caliper jammed what can I do?


Unlike most other calipers the rear caliper on a Montana cannot be compressed with a c-clamp but rather you need to turn it in like a screw

Unable to compress rear brake caliper is this caliper shot?


There is a tool that you can buy or rent at the parts house that you can connect to a hand tool EG: 3/8 rachet to use with a tool to compress the caliper while you turn the rachet. You will see some raised teeth on the calliper piston for the tool to bite on. Since the rear brake is used to lock the parking brake it has to have a self adjust to compensate for the brake pad wear. EG: Old school drum brakes adjust when you back up depressing the brakes and letting off while the vehicle is rolling allows for the adjuster to reset the brake shoe clearance.

How to change rear brake shoe pads of 2005 mitsubishi lancer


Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!
