SOURCE: front brake pads

Just did this tonight... 7/21/08

You need a torx head T-55 Star Socket to remove the caliper bolt(s) and a large 3/4 in preferably with a 1/2 dr and large breaker bar or torque wrench with a 1/2 in dr. to remove the knuckle bolts. I should've taken pictures, but I did not. After studying this exact issue for an hour or so, I finally got everything to click. Steps as I proceeded. Loosen the top caliper nut using the T-55 torx bit, this will take some doing, if possible, use a breaker bar or something comparable, I used a standard 3/8 in. socket wrench and about a foot long hollow metal tube on the end as the breaker and after some muscle work (ouch!!) got it loose. Now there are 2 bolts that hold the caliper in place that need to come out. I used a 3/4 in socket on a 1/2 breaker bar to get these to break. I don't have the exact torque specs to put these back on, but I went about 40lbs on the knuckle bolts and closer to 80lbs on the caliper torx head screw. Once you have the caliper torx head bolt loose and the other 2 nuts off, you can rotate the caliper. Using a C-Clamp, compress the caliper so that it is completely compressed. Now, remove the torx head bolt and the pad assembly will swing out, at this point, you can remove the old pads and clips if you are replacing them as well. Reverse the order for installation using Lock-tite and the caliper grease you get from the parts store. I hope I don't have to mention removing the tires, using jack stands and being completely safe under there. Good Luck. The first side took me about 3 hours considering time and studying, the second side took about half an hour after already knowing what to do.. It gets easier each time you do it.

So far, I have replaced 2 fuel pumps (at home) first one took about 7 hours, second time around, only took about 2 hours. Front and Rear brake jobs. numerous small items, now I'm looking at a blinker switch (problem with left turn signal... rapid click, no light).. Also, the dash panel either needs repaired or replaced as the fuel gage is constantly up and down. If you or someone else has a suggestion here, I would appreciate it.

Thanks and remember... Practice Safe "Do it yourself"..!

SOURCE: Replace front brake pads

1. Loosen lugs to wheel with wheel on the ground. Remove AFTER jacking the wheel into the air.
2. 2 bolts hold brake caliper to the suspension. Located on the inboard side of caliper. Usually is a regular hex bolt or an allen head. You may need to persuade them loose at first with a hammer or extra leverage.
3. caliper can be lifted off rotor exposing the pads. Be sure to note how the pads look in place so you can replace the new ones in the correct spot.
4. Depress the caliper piston completely back into cylinder with large channel lock pliers. be careful not to scar in any way.
4. put small amount of lube grease on bolt when reinstalling.
Good luck.. say a prayer and go for it.

SOURCE: how do I change front brake pads

You will first need to have a car jack, proceed to jack up the front side of the car you want to work on. Make sure you place the jack on the proper location, refer to instruction in manual. Take off your tire, now the whole brake assembly is visible, there will be two bolts on back of the brake unit. One at the top and one at the bottom. Unscrew both of these and proceed to slide the used pads and the unit you've just unscrewed. Make sure you clean off all dirt, rust and break pad rosedew. Now you'll need a C-clamp, The piece with the rubber protector on it needs to be compressed back into its compartment with the use of your C-clamp. Now that the unit is clean and the compressor is back in the chamber it's time to replace the small steel break sliders with the new ones provided with your new break set, slide your new breaks into those slots, beside the router. Your almost finished, just slide the break compressor back over the breaks and bolt the unit back on, make sure you tighten the bolts well , as these are your breaks and they will save your life. The only thing to do now is clean your tire inside and out while its off and put it back on your car. Have fun and don't worry it's easy.

Ok i'm trying to change the front brake pads on 2006 ford expedition and it doesnt take a T40 or t45 torx the rear ones took a T47 but the front ones takes something else the next size is a t 50 a


The front caliper takes a 9mm hex drive socket, and you can order it from Snap-on tools online. Nobody else had this socket and its the only one that is made for that caliper.

I'm looking into changing the front brake pads on my '06 Audi A6 3.2. I've been told that I would need some sort of computer to change the pads and erase the brake service code on the dash. Is this ture ?...


The light should shut off after the new pads are in and the car cycles through the entire system. If it doesnt, you can still replace them and then just have the dealer or a shop with a scanner reset the light.

My 2004 LeSabre shakes bad when I brake at around 50 mph. I changed the front brake pads. How difficult is it to change the front rotors?


Actually, changing the front rotors is not that difficult and they are relatively in-expensive. Anytime you change the pads on the front of your vehicle i would recommend having the rotors resurfaced or replaced. Especially if you are getting a brake pedal pulse when applying the brakes. Here is a step by step guide that will help you in removing your Front rotors.

Was told by Les Scwabb when went in for tirefix that the rear brakes are completely gone, needs pads rotors and calipers, and shouldn't really drive it anywhere. Is this something u think I should trust?...


Hi!!

Same happened to me once. I went and bought pads for $35 and took rotors to PepBoys for resurfacing, it was 10 or 15 for both. If they can not be resurfaced they tell you right there and offer new ones for about $50 ea. The actual change of pads I did it myself. Saved over $500 from their estimate.

Get another brake shop's estimate, and have them check your front brakes also, you'll be surprised on the $$$ difference.

Good Luck

I am replacing the brake pads on my Kia 2007 Sedona; front and back is neeeded or just front? Took it to Kia dealer and mechanic showed me pads where very thin and needed replacement; all for $400! Heck...


If your rotors are good and fairly smooth, then a decent ceramic pad will work well. Just be aware that ceramic pads will require a slightly greater paddle pressure. They will last longer, dust up a bit less and will perform MUCH greater in stop and go traffic...

I suspect that 25 dollars per axle is a typical cost for good quality disc brake pads.

How to change the brakes on an 2005 Audi A6 I know you need a special tool to change the rear pads. But I only want to change the front pads. Is this something I can do myself or do I need to take to Audi...


The front pads are like all other cars, a rachet and a C Clamp. The special tool is sold at your local parts store, its a box with tips on it, as they screw in.

Never changed my front brake pads myself before, always paid for it. do i need any special tools to get pads off and such


yes and no, you need a 4 inch or larger C clamp to push the wheel cylinder pistons in, other than that maybe a torx socket, have you ever changed any front disc brake pads before?

Its easier than you think. To open the caliper you simply apply pressure and turn the piston, like screwing it in. You must push it in at the same time or it doesn't work.
