    I have a 2003 Sonata built before Feb 2003, so it should be like the 2002. How do I remove the clip on the top of the caliper? I want to replace the disc brake pads.
    I have replaced brake pads on other brand cars but they did not have the clips that the Sonata disc brake calipers have.
    Thanks for any help,

How do I remove the clips on the brake pads on my 2003 Sonata build before Feb 2003? I assume it is the same design as the 2002 Sonata. I want to replace the pads.
There is a metal clip on the top side of each brake caliper. I assume the clips do something.
I have replaced disc brakes on several other brand models over the years but the disk brakes did not have the clips.
Thanks for any help.

Take off the wheel, remove the brake caliper (2 bolts on the back), then the rotor just slides off, the wheel studs are part of the hub assembly not the rotor.

Replace brake pads on 2007 vw polo


Park the polo on level ground, turn the engine off and apply the parking brake. Pull the hood release handle and move to the front of the car.

Lift the hood and remove the master cylinder. Remove one-half of the brake fluid inside the reservoir with a syringe.

Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheels with a tire iron. Place the jack beneath the frame at the back of the Volkswagen and lift the back tires off the ground. Rest the rear axles of the Volkswagen on two jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and take the rear wheels off.

Reach behind the brake caliper to locate the caliper mounting pins. Remove the pins with a 12 mm socket and ratchet. Lift the caliper from the brake rotor and suspend it above the wheel assembly with a bungee cord or wire coat hanger.

Remove the rear brake pads from the slots in the caliper bridge. Inspect the caliper bridge and rotor for damage and significant wear. Replace the rotor if it is warped or badly scored. Scoring of the rotors can lead to break failure and will prematurely wear the new brake pads. Place new brake pads into the slots of the caliper bridge.

Attach the piston depression tool to the caliper. The tool will fit over the back side of the caliper and against the piston inside. Twist the tool's handle to force the piston into the side of the rear caliper. Remove the tool once the caliper piston is totally depressed within the caliper.

Replace the caliper onto the caliper bridge and screw in the caliber mounting pens by hand. Replace the rear wheel onto the wheel bolt and screw on the lug nuts.

Repeat the process for the other side of the rear of the polo. Lift the rear end of the vehicle with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the rear tires to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

Return to the engine compartment. Remove the master cylinder cap and check the level of brake fluid. Place a funnel into the container and fill the reservoir with brake fluid as needed.

How to replace broken wheel lug?


Hi

With the car on a ramp and secure - Remove brake caliper, remove brake disc and undo the hub which has the lugs sticking out.

To do this, remove the metal cap with a screwdriver. Undo top lock nut, washers, castle nut and wheel bearings. This will allow the hub to be removed.

Using a press or a hammer, pop out the broken lug. Refit a new one, this might need pressed in, or you could get lucky with a hammer. Refit all the parts, regreasing the bearings before hand.

Vote for me please for helping, thanks :)

I have a 95 Chevy suburban and I am trying to change the rotor and can not get it off. The lugs are attached to the rotor and not sure what I should do


Removing: Loosen lug nuts (7/8") and spindle nut (36mm). Lift truck. Remove lug nuts, spindle nut, and wheel. Remove 2 bolts (3/8" allen) holding calipers on. Hold the calipers up with a bungee cord. I attached it to the sheet metal of the fender. Remove 4 bolts (15mm) from rear of hubs. Once these bolts are removed you can move the shield that is in-between the hub and the axle(I think). You are moving it to get access to the allen bolt that holds the ABS sensor on. Once you move the shield then you can look through the top of the rotor through the slots and see the sensor line and bolt. I don't remember what size allen this one took. You do need a long allen wrench though. Disconnect sensing line from hub. Now the rotor is ready to come off. I had to use a pry bar to remove this gently working each side until it popped off. Once the rotor is removed, you need to hammer out the lug bolts. Then you have to tap the rotor away from the hub. This took a little work. Then check each of the lug bolts by screwing the lug nuts on them. They should go all the way down by hand. If they don't - go buy new bolts $2 a piece. Installing: Position new rotor on hub. Get some dry ice from your local grocery store and freeze the bolts for about 10 minutes. Pull one bolt out of the ice at a time and install on the rotor and tighten the bolt with the lug nut. I put the nuts on upside down and used a 7/8" wrench and mallet to tap on the wrench to get these as tight as possible. You also have to tap on the head of the bolt and repeat the wrench tapping. Do this for each bolt pulling one out of the ice at a time. You do not have to get the rotor and hub completely together but get it as close together as possible. Once all of the lug bolts are in it is time to put the rotor on the truck. Ensure the shield is on the spindle and install the rotor, again, this takes some work. Once the rotor is on, connect the ABS sensing line. Line up the shield and install 4 bolts to rear of hub. You can align these by moving the hub, not the rotor. Install the caliper, remember to put brake grease on these 2 bolts. You may have to compress the caliper slightly. To do this remove the brake pad that has the circular part of the caliper touching it. Open the brake fill cap on the master cylinder. Use a C-clamp to compress the circular part. Reinstall the brake pad and brake fill cap. Install the caliper. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts. I used a cheater bar on my tire iron and ensured that the lug bolts were flush with the head of the lug nuts. Then I removed the wheel to verify that the gap between the rotor and the hub was gone. Reinstall wheel, tighten lug nuts, and tighten spindle nut. Once both brakes have been replaced, start up the truck and pump the brakes several times till you feel some tension when pressing them.

How to remove rear brakes on 2001 dodge caravan


Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack Jack stand Wheel chock 1/2-inch drive breaking bar 1/2-inch drive socket set 1/2-inch drive ratchet C-clamp Bungee cord Flathead screwdriver Ball peen hammer Handheld portable propane torch (optional) Medium grade sand paper or emery cloth Anti-seize lubricant.
STEPS TO REPLACE REAR BRAKES
  1. Park the Dodge Caravan on a level paved or concrete surface.2
  2. Place a wheel chock in front of one of the front tires.3
  3. Break the lug nuts loose on the reartires.4
  4. Lift one side of the rear axle of theCaravan using the floor jack and place a jack stand under the rear axle.5
  5. Remove the lug nuts and tire.6
  6. Remove the caliper bolts using the ratchet and a socket. Remove the pads from the caliper starting with the outboard pad and pry it from the caliper housing with a flathead screwdriver. Remove the inboard pad and compress the piston of the caliper in using the C-clamp. Replace the pads. Hang the caliper to the frame using the bungee cord.
  7. Remove the caliper anchor bolts using the ratchet and a socket.8
  8. Remove any retaining rings on the hub of the rotor around the studs. Pry them off with the screwdriver and discard them. You will not need them for reinstallation.
  9. Strike the fin of the rotor on the edge using the ball peen hammer. Spin the rotor and strike it often and from the inside of the tire well moving out. Use as much force as necessary. If the rotor still does not want to come off (rare cases) light up the portable propane torch and apply a liberal amount of heat to the hub of rotor around the lug studs and strike with the hammer to shock it from the hub.0Sand down the hub facing with a medium grade sandpaper or emery cloth once the rotor has been removed and the hub has cooled down if you had to use the torch. Sand down the edges of the hub as well.
  10. Apply a light coat of anti-seize lubricant to the edge of the hub and this will help in the future when the rotor needs to be removed again for whatever reason.
  11. Replace the parts in reverse procedure and repeat the steps for the other side.

Changing front rotors on F100 1978.


Jack the front up. Place jack stands under the axle so it wont fall on you. Remove the front wheels. Remove the brake calipers. Your vehicle will have two long bowed pieces that you knock out of a track to remove the calipersTwo on each side. Then remove the dust cover over the hub. Remove the kotter key and back the nut off and remove it. Gently pull on the rotor and remove it. After removal place it on some wood block with the face up. Place the lug nuts back onto the lugs to protect the threads. Use a heavy brass hammer to pound the lugs back through the rotpr one at a time until they are all removed. Remove the nuts from the lugs and push the lugs out completly and the rotor will lift off. Reverse the procedure to replace the rotor. While the hubs are off you may as well replace the wheel seals and grease the wheel bearings as you may have damaged the seals during removal. These steps should get the job done. If you need further clarification please feel free to ask. I'm more than glad to help direct or answer your questions. Let me know how it goes for you.

Rear Brake rotor removal


Be very careful as my 75 year old pappy taught me this trick..... take of the wheel, make sure the rear of the vehicle is off the ground (both sides). Re affix 3 lugs back on the bolts (about 1/2 way tuened down). Start the vehilce and place in drive -spin the rear wheels and the force will cause the rotor to loosen against the lugs.

Replacment of wheel lug bolts on rear wheels


The bolts can be replaced 1 of 2 ways w/o pulling axle. Need to take rotor off and either press bolts out with an arbor press or can be tapped out with a copper or brass hammer. Once out, the new ones can be pressed in by putting about 4 or 5 washers on and then tightening the lug nut down until the lug is pulled snug into the roter. Once snug, the roter can then be reinstalled on the wheel and brake assy put back. Caution!! Brake assy needs to be supported up out of the way with wire or coat hanger while removing rotor. Undo force of weight on brake pad assy can damage hose or unit itself.
