All you have to do is take the calipers off crack open the bleeder of the side you are working on leave the old pad in the caliper and press the pad in as far as it will go tighten bleeder clean the rotors with brake clean to get the oily substance off they put on during shipping to keep them from rusting put rotor back in place and put new pads in caliper if they give you grease for the caliper sliders put some on the caliper bolts and sliders the thing the bolts go into on the caliper so they move fairly easy this way your brakes will work better and last longer put caliper back in place tighten caliper bolts snug usually with a ratchet like a good 3/8 ratchet then do the other side fill up the master cylinder with proper brake fluid usually dot3 but should say on master cylinder cap bleed brakes if you did just the front bleed the passenger side first pump pedal a few times dont go all the way to the floor have someone open the bleeder on the right front passenger front while holding pedal down with just a little pressure one foot on pedal one under pedal so it dont go to the floor then do the same for the other side check fluid start vehicle if pedal is good go for a test drive and thats it.

What gets done at 60 000 service intervals for petrol engines

This is best answered by the service schedule of the car. Any car of the same make around the year of manufacture will have the same schedule. IF it is miles you are referring to then items like cam belt change, auto oil change, brake fluid change, coolant change brake rotor check, cv joints would most likely be on the schedule as 60.000 miles is a big service.

Remove the wheel,take the caliper off like you would do to change the brakes,follow the brakeline up to the master cylinder,unscrew it, go back down to the caliper and remove the bolt holding it to the caliper.( its best to drain the brake reservoir before you do this. Bleed the brakes when you are done)

Unfortunately it takes special equipment to bleed the brakes on a vehicle with ABS brakes. If you can get the car to a shop it's best to have them bleed the air out of the system.

I have to change the break fluid but i dont know where its located

Why does the brake fluid need changed? This service is usually only needed on much older cars...Has your Van been parked for a long time? Is your brake fluid contaminated? Best guess would be someone filled the brake reservoir with something other than brake fluid...If so, this is a repair for a brake specialist...:)

Changing Brakes concern

Most brake pads have what they call squeak indicators.These indicators will start squeaking when your not applying the brakes when the pads get low.Otherwise the best way is to inspect the pads and see how much is left.

99 dakota back brakes

Ask your mechanic to back off on the adjustment ( way too tight ). Or maybe, did you accidently leave the parking brake on? ( happens to the best of us!!! ). Good luck and God bless.
