How do i fix rattling brake calipers


1st i would make sure that it is indeed the calipers and not the stabilizer bar end links.the links should not make any noise if pulled on.there will be movement ,as they have ball joints in them but there should not be a clacking sound if you pull on the links. .Irritating suspension faults can also be found by hitting parts with a 2 lb rubber mallet. Also check the pad clips are in place or the pads could be rattling in the caliper.Worn slider pins can be replaced along with the bushing inserts..

Mazda 6 2006 front brake pad clicking noise


Same problem, unscrew the 2 caliper bolts, they should have a rubber boot at top and MUST have a bushing type layer - like a rubber sleeve over the front end of bolt like a 2 inch rubber sleeve that is inserted into the caliper. Without the sleeve bushing and rubber boot at the top head of bolt the caliper will make a clicking sound going over bumps as the whole caliper will make the clicking sound hitting as the pads or rotors will have play. Had all bushings, struts, shocks wheels ball joints, sway bars, control arms checked but this simple bolt going into caliper will make calipers have enough play to knock when going over bumps. never would have thought as all pads, rotors etc tight as drum but old school tech found it and solved, 06 rx8 try its cheap and easy ix.

How do i get the calapers off the rear of a 2006 grand caravane?


Using a C clamp depress the claiper. There a spot right in the middle to do this. Now the fun part hope you have metic hex key set. The 2 caliper guide pins are on the back inside the boots. Which need to be in great condition. Using the metic hex keys some are 7mm or 8mm turn to your right to remove. Rmove the caliper mounting bracket bolts. Fun part #2 removing the disc rotor. Theres parking brake pads or a durm brake system on the inside of the rotor. If the rotor does not slide off. You must remove the rubber gromet on the back of the backing plate. Using a screwdriver or the old brake adjuster tool turn the star wheel to adjust the parking brake in to remove the disc rotor. All brake guides on the calipers & guide pins need to have high temperture brake grease applyed to them. Buy the big bottle for $10 for the front brakes & future use it comes with a bush. Note ** Remove a guide pin take to auto store buy socket to reinstall guide pin/bolt. Why Caliper guide pins 26lbs torque. Caliper mounting bolts 125lb torque

Stabilizer links


you have a stabilizer bar that goes from side to side on the front and link pins that it connects to the bar has 2 bushings and the pins have 4 each. once you remove the wheel and look under you will see it right away. they are not hard to change and pretty straight forward.
