SOURCE: Changing rear Brakes on a peugeot

Hi Jeff...

I'm afraid this isn't exactly a solution/fix... but I am literally a day or two away from doing this job myself and more importantly though, I've been able to remove the pins you're referring to... so I hope my experiences can help you here.

Btw, my peugeot 406 estate is the V6 version - first edition (I.e. I think '96ish to '99), with rear discs.

Right, the pins I think you're talking about are the biggish ones, which run cross-ways, through the pads & caliper housing. They should come out freely, although each is held in place with a spring-clip. To also confirm we're talking about the same thing, these biggish pins hold the anti-rattle cage in place, which you should be able to see, with the wheel off, looking at the caliper from the side (you should be able to see the sides/edges of the pads too). They are NOT the big bolts that secure the caliper in place.

Anyhow, I used a pair of long nosed pliers to remove the spring clips, then I used the pliers to give the big pin a quick twist (to check it would rotate/move freely, as compared to being rusted in). I then used one half of the pliers to poke the pin backwards. The hole that you push the pin through should be facing you, as you face the car/wheel/brake disc.

Hopefully you will find that by shoving something into this hole, the pin will move away from you, inwards, towards the car... then just move it along until it comes out the back of the caliper housing. BE CAREFUL that the anti-rattle cage doesn't spring off unexpectedly + MAKE SURE you note which way round it goes.

The job itself, I think, won't be hard (otherwise I wouldn't be doing it). However, I did invest in a Haynes manual, which is very good and covers this in detail.

Please note that I've only tried to explain how these pins get removed, not the whole process. I personally found that the big bolts which secure the caliper in place are the pigs to deal with. The nearside wasn't too bad but the offside, cos of the direction you have to turn the bolts through, was awful... and I nearly gave up cos I just COULDN'T get the lower bolt to budge (I did in the end but i was honestly at that one bolt for an hour).

Finally, in case the pad retaining pins are rusted-in, all I can suggest is VERY CAREFUL use of WD40/penetrating oil + trying to rotate the pin (as I mentioned earlier) + something like a nail (suitably thick), which can fit into the hole that the pin resides in and then tap the nail with a hammer, so that the pin gets knocked backwards.

Hope this helps a bit.



Cheers,

Gary

SOURCE: do i need to change the brake pads and discs???

No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.

Check both sides of the discs if they are ok.If yes then quite possible that there is lots of brake dust between the discs and pads.

SOURCE: ABS and brake fault warning

I has a clicking/knocking noise on one of my 407 (54 plate) front wheels after a change of brake pads. On investigation I found that the bracket to which the caliper hydraulic hose was fixed (at the lower end of the suspension strut) had been bent downward and was catching the CV boot clip. I bent it back up and the noise went. It is possible (if the brake caliper is not supported during pad change) to bend the bracket supporting the hydraulic hose. It could also interfere with the ABS wheel sensor bracket - check. Simply jack-up and support the car on the side with the noise and turn the wheel by hand to see what gives (don't go under the car until it is supported safely)..

Hi I have a peugeot 406, I HAVE REPLACE THE FRONT BREAK DISC AND THE BREAK PADS BUT IT STILL GIVE THAT HORABLE NOIOSE WHEN I BREAK. Its realy iritating and i take good care of my car,


Remove the brake pads from the car and smear small amount of high melting point silicone grease e.g. Carlube, at the back of the brake pads. Be careful do not put on too much and never has it touch the pad material and the disc rotor. if you do, remove it with brake clearner immediately. The squeaks noise shall disappear if you fix it properly.

How to change the brakes on a 1998 ford windstar?


Very easy! I owned several different year Windstars....very good van...

Changing the pads are very easy. Here is the instructions:

Removal & Installation
  1. Remove the brake master cylinder reservoir cap. Siphon and recycle approximately half the fluid from the reservoir.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Remove the disc brake caliper guide pins.
It is not necessary to disconnect the hydraulic lines.
  1. Lift the disc brake caliper from the anchor plate.
  2. Position the disc brake caliper out of the way by suspending with a wire.
  3. Remove the brake pads from the anchor plate.
To install:
  1. Inspect the rotor surfaces for scoring or buildup of lining material. Minor imperfections do not require machining. Hand sand the glaze from the rotor using 150 grit aluminum oxide sand paper.
  2. Use a C-clamp and wooden block to seat the disc brake caliper hydraulic piston in its bore, as illustrated. This must be done to provide clearance for the disc brake caliper to fit over the front rotor during installation.
  3. Remove all built-up rust from the inside of the brake caliper pad contact area.
  4. Install the brake pads, with the clip on insulators, into the front brake caliper anchor plate.
  5. Install the disc brake caliper onto the anchor plate.
  6. Install the disc brake caliper guide pins and tighten to 23-38 ft. lbs. (31-38 Nm).
Failure to tighten the lug nuts to the proper torque in a star pattern may result in damage to the brake rotor.
  1. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts to 83-112 ft. lbs. (113-153 Nm).
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Pump the brake pedal to seat the brake pads.
