How can I adjust the parking brake on my 2002 GMC Sierra HD


Umm... I could be wrong but... the 2002 GMC 2500 has rear *disc brakes with an interior set of *drum brakes for the E brakes. check with your dealer because there was a recall on the E brake for some early 2000 GMC trucks. also there is a manuel adjuster for the parking brakes.

What special tools are required to change the rear brakes of a 2002 mazda protege?


If it is a rear disc brake system, the only special tool would be an allen wrench:

Turn the manual adjustment gear counterclockwise with an Allen wrench to pull the caliper piston inward (turn until it stops).

If it is a drum type brake system...no special tools...just a screwdriver, pliers....

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

Changing rear brakes 2005 freestar


The brake calipar pistons on the rear, have to be turned in with a special tool, they can't be pressed in like the front. turn them in just far enough for the new pads to fit over the rotors.

Replacing disc brakes on a 2000 v.w jetta


When I changed my sisters VW Jetta I used the follow:
  1. Lug Wrench
  2. Ratchet
  3. Socket to fit the caliper bolts (can't remember size)
  4. C-Clamp to push the piston back in
  5. Bucket to set the caliper on while changing the pads
On the rear brakes I had to borrow the special tool to push in rear disc brakes from AutoZone, this tool spins the piston while pushing it back in.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and thanks for using FixYa!

I need to replace the rear brakes and rotors on my 2004 Audi A4. Will I need special tools to do this? Can I still do the job without these tools?


'B6' (2001-2004) A4s dont have seperate rotors on the rear brakes like the pre 2001 A4s do. When changing the rear pads + discs the only special tool you will need is a caliper wind back tool. Let me know if you do also need to replace any ABS components aswell as I might be able to advise.

Rear Brakes on a 2002 GMC 2500HD.??


You will need a large allen socket or torqes (sp?) socket to loosen the caliper bolts; you can get at auto parts places. Other than that you will likely need a medium to large deep throat C clamp to force the fluid back to the resevoir by squeezing the calipers back in the body. Do this slowly as there may be check valves to over come with the fluid return. I am not aware of other special stuff.

On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.
