SOURCE: changing front brake pads on a kia rio 2004

ok first you have to take the wheel off
then you will see the caliper there'
there are to bolts behind that take them out
then take the caliper off dont undo nothing else
take the old pads out
use a caliper to push the cylinder back (its what pushes the brake in)
put the new brakes in the same way they came off
do the bolts up
then pump the brakes
is the cylinder is to hard to push back you will have to realse the pressure buy undoing the bleeder then you will have to bleed them again (but in this case they should move easy

2002 kia reo keeps needing new brakes

I am assuming you are talking about the front brakes. If that is the case, its possible that one or both of your calipers are seizing thus holding the pads against the rotor. The other possibilities of locking up, are: bent or worn caliper sliders (bolts, in most cases) or believe it or not, front brake hoses. Have a qualified brake shop check these items.

Hi I have a 2008 Kia Rio that rides super but sometimes not all when I depress the brakes to stop there is a whine. Can anyone tell me what that is Rob

This noise could be generated from the front brake pads and rotors. Or brake dust accumulation in the rear brake drums. A simple cleaning process will/should fix this issue for you. Hope this helps...
