Problem getting caliber over rotor after changing brake pads.

I am changing the brake pads on a 2004 kia rio. I was able to get the pads on the left side of the car no problem. Put the pads in the caliber on the right side, but the pads opposite the brake cylinder keeps hitting the rotor. Cylinder in pushed all the way in. What is going wrong?

How do you change the rear brakes pads and a caliper on a 2004 XJ8?


you will need to 1st get a caliber turning set from harbor freight, it very cheap maybe 35-40 bucks...you need to raise both rear tires,crank the car put it in neutral so that the electric module releases the brakes from park position,then you disconnect the neg battery term.remove the tires, open the hood,remove the fluid reservoir cap,remove the calibers by the two bolts facing the inside,then remove the pads,then take the caliber tooland lock the two male nipples ends inside the female piston plates(u will see how the fit)now make sure the brace plate of the of the caliber tool is snug and begin turning the tool threaded side clockwise,and the bolt near the plate should be turned counter clockwise and each turn will turn the piston inside the caliber until its all the way flush with the inside of the caliber wall itself...then place the pads inside the caliber rotors are the same as removing from any other car,they may need a good tap with a hammer,some may have one alen head screw.But replace the rotors and pads.Once they are replaced,lower the car,reconnect the neg terminal,put the fluid cap back on,crank the car,pump the brakes and hold the center console lever upuntil the brake light goes off and u will hear the rear brake module engage.Hope this helps!

Replace rear rotors 2004 jeep cherokee


Heres what you will need to do this type of job. First you will need a rachet and metric sockets with an extention if available. Also you will need somthing to press the caliber piston back into place a special tool or some kind of press would work . A plastic auto hammer to knock the rotors loose, somtimes they can be difficult to remove. Pliers would be needed as well as a screw driver to help mount the caliber or pads back into place. One thing to keep in mind is that if you indeed are replacing the rear rotors, it is recommended to get new pads as well. This is for the reason that old pads will cause break sqealing since they are not surfaced perfectly straight for the new rotor. Step one will be to get the caliber of the vehicle so if there is a medal clip on one of the studs just use the pliers to rip it off. Then use the rachet to remove two bolts holding the caliber. After you remove those bolts, there should be another two bolts holding the caliber bracket as well, do the same procedure in removing those. IMPORTANT do not let the caliber hang by the brake cable, put it on a stand or in a location where it is not free fall hanging. Now you should just have the rotor left, try pulling on it to see if it breaks loose, if not then use your plastic hammer to bang in the back of the rotor and knock it loose that way. If I remember correclty those rear rotors will have brake shoes underneath. Do not wory about those they are there for your emergency brakes. Now put the new rotor on and make sure it is securley installed on the wheel hub. Install you'r bracket first, then begine to install your caliber back into place. NOTE the caliber may not install to easy onto the rotor for the reason that you will need to compress the piston inside with either the special tool or some type of press. If you compress it and you hear brake fluid dripping down, it is nothing to worry about, its just the fluid being pushed back by pressure. Install the caliber and pads the same way as removal paying close attention to the other side if your not sure of how the originally were installed. When all this is finished look up brake bleading on YOUTUBE.com to accurately bleed your brakes and remove any air inside that may cause spongy or moister inside your brake lines.

Hope this Helps!

I'm sorry to disagree with your mechanic,but it sounds to me like your rotors are warped.I would go ahead and replace rotors and pads with an estamated 5k sounds like they are thin.

When I installed the new brake pads on the front of my 2005 kia rio, I could not slide it back over the rotor. Do I need a special tool, or something?


No, you need to squish the caliper pistons back into the caliper so they will fit. Take a big c-clamp and do it very slowly or you will have brake fluid all over the engine. If they are self adj, you need to turn them in with pair of channelock pliers, They will self adj back out after you get going, check it out, hope this helps.

I would suggest that you take it to another shop and have the system checked by a technician.A good pad to install is wagner thermo quiet brake pads and have them check the thickness of the rotors also.A good technician will check your complete braking system to make sure there are no faulty parts.

I have a 2005 Kia Amanti, In the past year i have had to replace the Pass. Side Rear brake Pad and rotor three times. It keeps sticking and buring the pad up and groving the rotor. I have taken it to kia...


It's sad that the dealer cannot or will not solve this problem. Sounds like they want to keep having you spend money on pads and rotors in stead of fixing the problem. I would look for a shop that has better experience. It doesn't have to be a dealer shop to find the best people.
Well, in most cases like this, the caliber 80% to blame. 20% is the hardware ( springs and clips ). The hardware helps keep the shoes in place and helps relieve pressure/sticking when brakes are not in use.
The best solution would be to replace calibers and hardware on both sides. Doing both sides prevent from one side being stronger or weaker than the other. Therefore, one side will not wear out faster than the other.

Changing front brake pads on a kia rio 2004


ok first you have to take the wheel off
then you will see the caliper there'
there are to bolts behind that take them out
then take the caliper off dont undo nothing else
take the old pads out
use a caliper to push the cylinder back (its what pushes the brake in)
put the new brakes in the same way they came off
do the bolts up
then pump the brakes
is the cylinder is to hard to push back you will have to realse the pressure buy undoing the bleeder then you will have to bleed them again (but in this case they should move easy
