Nothing special about these brakes. Parking brake is behind rotor, so all caliper pistons push into bores.

If you have done front brakes before, it is the same procedure. They are built the same, just on a different axle.

2004 Jetta 1.8T - doing brakes and hear there is a concern about a sensor and wire for the ABS. Is there any concerns or is it just a pigtail connection to disconnect and then work on the...


The ABS wire is well away from your brake caliper. If your vehicle has brake pad warning wires, these may need to be replaced with the pads. They sometimes come with the pad set. Hope this helps...

2003 bonneville rear brake job. Do I need a special tool to remove pads from calipers. I have done many brakes and rotaors but auto parts person says I may need a special tool to remove pads.


Once the caliper is taken off the rotor a screwdriver can pop the pads off. New pads will have metal spring clips to attatch back on the same way.

Are there any special tools needed to change the brakes on a 2006 toyota sienna? Standard two bolts that hold it on?


You will probably not need anything other than a metric socket wrench set.

Many Toyota models have disc brake calipers that will flip up or down when you remove one of the two bolts that hold the calipers on. I am not sure of the setup on the Sienna.

When you remove either the upper or lower bolt and move the caliper, you can then remove the old pads. Also, you will need to push the piston(s) back into their cylinders to give you enough space to install the new pads. A large C clamp will usually suffice to push in the pistons.

I assume that you are talking about the front (disc) brakes. Some autos still have drum brakes on the rear, and those are a different story. They require several specialty tools to remove and replace the shoes.

How do i change both front and rear brake pads on a 2004 mazda rx8?


CHANGING FRONT BRAKE PADS
Jack up the car. Take off your tire. Find the bolt on the back of the caliper and take it off. This should release the caliper, pull the caliper off the disc. Now you should be able to take the pad out. Replace the pad. You'll need a special tool to reset the caliper. As the brakes wear down, the caliper gets tighter so the brakes still work. I'm not sure exactly what its called, but you can borrow one from auto zone. Follow the instructions that come with it to reset the caliper. Slide the caliper back over the disc. If it doesn't go on, you need to reset the caliper more. Put the relese bolt back in. Put your tire back on.Drive slowly and test the brakes.
CHANGING THE REAR BRAKE PADS
The rear brakes on the rx8 are a bit different than most setups...be careful! The only way to move the piston back into the caliper is by way of a special allen head bolt that is directly behind the piston, on the back side of the caliper, installed under a 14mm bolt.
You have to remove this bolt to gain access to the allen head. As you loosen the allen head bolt(counter-clockwise), the piston will move back into the caliper.
Installation is pretty typical, again, the allen head bolt being the unusual part. The manual says to tighten this bolt until the pads contact the rotor, then loosen the bolt 1/3rd of a turn, then reinstall the 14mm bolt.

2003 Honda Civic Si - Changing rear brake problem


Ford taurus's have the same setup on the rear calipers and it requires a special tool or persistance on your part with a pair of channels lock pliers and a c clamp. turn the piston clockwise as you press it in with a c clamp or get the tool mentioned below.

Harbor Freight has this special tool... found HERE

And yes, once you get the piston in it will come back out on it's own and yes will automatically readjust.

Anything to watch when changing pads and rotors on a 2006 Tucson?


Not really anything special, just if you have rear disc brakes there is a special tool you need to push (rotate) the caliper piston in because of the fact they are special calipers equipped for parking brake function.
