SOURCE: Changing Brake Pads on a 2004 Range Rover

uh... software, pistons, abs??? this guy definately does not know car mechanics. brakes are all mechanical and the abs system has nothing to do with the brakes directly.

To compress pistons, there are two steps. one, open brake fluid reservoir cap to allow easier compression.
two, turn hub assembly outward toward you so you can see the pad and caliper. insert large flat head screwdriver between pad and rotor and pry slowly towards the piston. adjust when needed to keep pressure in the center of the piston.

there are two allen "hex" key bolts, hidden under plastic caps. loosen those and remove. These are the slider bolts that the calipers float on. remove the calipers. there are two 16" bolts that hold the caliper bracket to the hub. remove those to remove the rotors.

How do you compress the break caliper on a 2004 Kia sorento


IS THIS A REAR OR FRONT CALIPER?
1. FRONT CALIPER: INSERT A LARGE C CLAMP WITH THE SCREW END INTO OPEN BORE OF CALIPER PISTON, THE STATIONARY END SHOULD BE SNUG AGAINST THE CALIPER END HOUSING: THAT THE PISTON MOVES IN AND OUT OF
COMPRESS C-CLAMP UNTIL CALIPER PISTON SEATS FULLY AGAINST THE CALIPER SEAL. INSTALL NEW PADS
2. REAR CALIPER: RENT AT AUTOZONE A REAR DISC CALIPER COMPRESSION TOOL. THESE CALIPER PISTONS WIND IN CLOCKWISE, INSTEAD OF JUST SLIDING BACK INTO A SMOOTH BORE. THEY HAVE GROOVES THAT FOLLOW A MATCHING SET IN THE CALIPER HOUSING.

YOU NEED TO REMOVE 2/3 BRAKE FLUID FROM MASTER CYLINDER.THEN YOU WILL NEED A LARGE C -CLAMP.OPEN C - CLAMP PLACE C - CLAMP OVER TOP BRAKE CALIPER AND AGAINST THE BACK OF THE OUTBOARD BRAKE PAD. THEN TIGHTEN THE C -CLAMP UNTIL THE CALIPER PISTON IS PUSHED INTO THE CALIPER BORE JUST ENOUGH TO SLIDE CALIPER OFF THE ROTOR.WARNING WHEN FINISHING BRAKE JOB.PLACE COVER BACK ON MASTER CYLINDER.TAKE FOOT PUMP BRAKE PEDAL UNTIL YOU GET SOLID BRAKES.THIS SEATS BRAKE SHOES AGAINST THE ROTOR.THEN RECHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN MASTER CYLINDER.

Unlike most other calipers the rear caliper on a Montana cannot be compressed with a c-clamp but rather you need to turn it in like a screw

Cant find a way to compress rear brake caliper


Using a "C" clamp I usually use the old pads and gently use the clamp to depress it by turning a little at a time... Make sure to go slow..

Compressing the rear caliper i am trying to compress rear caliper with a c clamp and it wont move


Some caliper pistons are the wind back type.
You will need to buy a special tool to wind the piston back with.
Usually fairly cheap .
The Pistons usually wind back in a clockwise motion.
Hope this helps.

Need to replace Discs and left rear rotor, what tools are needed?


Once the wheels are off you will need metric sockets and possibly metric wrenches.I believe the sizes are 10mm in rear to get the calipers off and 13mm in front. but have a range of metric sockets available. You will also need a c-clamp or large channel lock pliers to compress the caliper piston back into the caliper on the front and rear befoer installing the new brake pads and caliper back onto the vehicle.
Good luck with the repair.

Cant compress piston on rear brake calipers


Use a caliper wind back tool which rotates the piston at the same time as pushing it back. Release the bleed screw to assist the wind back. If you use a brake hose clamp on the brake hose this will reduce the need to bleed the system.
