Question about Cars & Trucks
How do I change the slider/guide bushings (rubber boot) on a rear caliper on my Mazda 3 2004 ? Pins are tight , causes caliper not to free float. Thanks

And the Price for the Bushing is CHEAP..
You need only Replace the damaged parts, not all the ALL HARDWARE, They are wrong.
OK.. you can find on any Autoparts. for EXAMPLE Here is AUTOZONE.

I hope this help on your question..
Thank you for use fixya..

on the rear calipers there is a 14m bolt on the back of the caliper beside the parking brake braket.
remove bolt on the inside there is a hex screw. as you turn it the piston gose in or out.
check calipers for damage.
