Brake calipar diagram


Silly, you don't need a diagram, just use a 8 inch c-clamp with the hook on the back of the caliper and the adjustable screw in pad on the outside of the outer pad itself and screw the c-clamp in till it stops to squeeze the caliper piston all the way back in to it's casting to give you the room to put it back on the same way you took it off. To remove it, jack the tire off the ground and remove it. Use the c-clamp to squeeze the piston back in, remove the to caliper slide blots from the back that the caliper slides on, pull the old pads out and put in the new ones, being sure they are turned the same as what you removed, then put the caliper back on, placing the slide bolts back in and tighten them tight, then put your tire back on. Pump the brake pedal till it up and hard again, then do the other side the same way. No problem. Happy to be of service my friend.

Toyota tercel 1996;


take tire off and remove caliper take the pads out then take a large c clamp with a flat piece of steel shape closely to one of the pads do not use your pads for this unless u kept one of the old ones which will work great place the piece of metal across the round center then place the clamp head behind the caliper so its directly in line with the metal plate centered over the round cylinder and then clamp down slowly by turning clamp handle make sure you stay centered when it flattens out set it aside and be very carefull of brake lines next see if wheel cylinder turns also shake it to check for looseness remember if its front wheel drlve the transmission will have that wheel for its main power and it would seem a little bit harder to turn put the car in nuetral to check spin it should drag some on the training because of all the gears but if its crunching when turning you will need to check the barings if thats not it then theres a problem with training ok after checking those things its time to put it back together remove clamp put pads back on slide it back on and bolt it back on thenput tire back on be sure to pump the brake peddal several times to build fluid back to cylender on brake then check underhood to make sure fluid is at proper hight make sure cap is on brake master cylender then test your brakes if this doesnt help try bleeding the brakes starting with rear passenger side then reardrivers side then front passenger side then drivers side in that order i replaced all my brakes myself and they are working great

How to replace brake pad and rotor on 2000 dodge stratus


First, take off the tire. Use an air tool if you have it. Then loosen the bolts holding the caliper to the rotor. Then pull the caliper off the rotor and take the rotor off the hub. Simply put the new rotor on the hub. Then take off the old pads and pay attention to how they are on to make it easier to install the new ones. Next you need a C-clamp. You have to push the piston back down inside the caliper for it to fit on the rotor with the new pads. Put on the new pads and put it in place on the rotor. Tighten the bolts back on the caliper and you're almost done. I also like to put never seize on the rotor around where the tire touches it so it's easier to remove for the next time. Put the tire back on and tighten it up. That's all! Good luck!

How do I change brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. Are there any guides available


Yes, You can buy a manual at your lacal parts store.
However, It's not that hard. But , you didn't say if you
need to change the front or rear pads?
I'll assume your refering to the front.
1st You'll need to jack up the car if you only have one
Jack then, pick the side you are too start say left front.
Jack the car up like chainging a tire BUT, Jack the car
up but, leave the tire touching the ground with, some weight
still on the tire with a lug rench turn the lug nuts JUST enought
to loosin the nut DO NOT take the nut off, maybe 1/4 " only.
Do the same on the others. Now, Jack up the car until the tire
is off the ground. NOW, Put a Jack Stand under the car never
NOT use a stand. Remove the nuts and tire.
Turn the wheel to the right it will give you more room to work.
You'll need to remove the caliper that holds the pads on.
There are two screws that hold the caliper on. I believe,
there 13mm remove the screws (Take them all the way OUT)
Remove, The caliper the pads, will stay in the holder.
Remove, the pads you may need a screw driver to get the
pads out.There are two pads that have a scencer on them
one for each side PUT that pad on the inside holder.( sencer down)
NOW rember you need, too make room for te new pads.
You need a c- clamp to push the piston BACK into the
bottom of the caliper. Be sure the piston is at the bottom of the caliper
or the caliper will NOT fit back on. Install the new pads into the holder.
.Then, put the caliper back on to it's mount over the new pads.
Put the two caliper bolts back and, your done.
Reverse, the infromation from the top.

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.

Service Brake system flashed three seperate times over 24 hours


2 suggestions:

(1) I would suggest someone scan the ABS system for codes. I Have an '03 silverado 2500HD Crew cab, and it needs an EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) "ABS module". "Service Brake System" message on dash, ABS and Brake warning lamps lit as well. May be the R/F ABS wheel speed sensor, but what you described happen, shouldn't have caused damage to it.
(2) If the aftermarket rim and tire combo are larger than stock (larger overall diameter), then this may affect the way your PCM functions. You can reprogram the PCM to recognize larger diameter running gear so trans shift points and the speedometer and such can function properly.
I hope this helps.
