I did mine a year ago and the piston is on a spline so that it has to be twisted in and out. You need a special tool of course or you can fool around like I did with a pair of needle nose pliars and twist it that way.

Lincoln Continental Brake problems Brake on drivers side front lock up traction control light on ABS light on this has been a problem since we got car


Not a problem if you have the ABS System properly
diagnosed

I know what your saying, but common sense says there
are people capable of resolving the issue,you just have
to find that skilled person & one who likes fords

If what you saying is correct & the left front was dragging,
you could not use the car as the hubs would over heat &
you would have resolved the problem long ago.

How can i compress the caliper piston back of audi a6 2000 2.8l awd what kind of tools i need . Vise grip is not working.


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also.
But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!

For front brake pads. You should buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!!

Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

2002 buick lasabre has rubbing in front right wheel area.sounds like a brake pad but checked and can,t see any problem. applying breaks doesn't change anything. does not roar like bearing or click like...


First i would check the lug nuts to make sure they are tight. Then i would check brake pads. Possible the shims may need to be replaced for the brake pads or brake grease is needed. Rotors could be warped as well. But i would think the pads may be sticking.

In my 98 buick lasabre all my brake fluid is gone there is a puddle in the front right sid by the tire where could this leak be coming from


It could be coming from one of several spots. It could be a damaged brake line, a loose brake bleeder valve (unlikely), or it could be that your brake pad is either badly worn or has broken free of the caliper (you would most likely hear grinding). and is allowing fluid to leak paced the caliper piston. The first one is most likely the cause if the have no other symptoms.
Hope this helps.

How do i remove the rear passanger 2000buick lasabre door panel.


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
