You can Fix or Replace just one Caliper and be Just Fine. as for the ClockSpring, I would leave this to a Pro. that has all the Tools needed to do this Safely. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!

How to change clockspring on 2006 freestar


Changing a clockspring is not for the novice repairman. You will need to disable the airbag system, remove the steering wheel airbag, make sure the wheels are straight and remove the steering wheel. Then you will need to use a clockspring compressor and remove the retaining ring and un-plug the electrical connectors. Then plug in the new clockspring and install the clock spring and retainer, then remove the alignment lock from the new clockspring after it is installed. Then finish installing the steering wheel, air bag, and re-arm the system.

My 2004 buick ranier says service air bags the scan says driversside deployment sensor openwhat does this mean and is it real expensive to fix


It means that the ECM thinks the air bag has deployed. Your air bags will not protect you in a crash until this is fixed. I'm not sure if the deployment sensor has a dedicated line on the clockspring ribbon or not. The reason is, that the clockspring is the usual suspect for air bag codes. Since the deployment sensor is not accessible, I would have a professional look at it. Alternatively, some black tape over the air bag light and drive carefully.

How cani change the liquid of brakes sistem, please


The BEST way is to buy one of those pressure bleeders. Professional style bleeders start at $50, but you can get one that uses pressure from your spare tire to push fluid through the system for about $25. It will have detailed directions.
The kind of bleeder that uses a Mityvac to pull fluid through works, and is very safe for all brake systems, but does not work very well.
On a Volvo, the threaded part where the cap fits on the reservoir is fairly short. This means that you have to use two gaskets on the cap part of a pressure bleeder or it will leak fluid all over the floor. (Don't ask me how I know)

You should get a bottle and some clear nylon hose about 1/8" ID that fits the nipples on the brake calipers. That will keep the draining fluid contained so you don't make a mess and will allow you to see the color of the fluid and the bubbles (if any). I use two hoses so I can bleed two nipples at a time.
Your front calipers have two separate circuits feeding them, I believe, so be sure to bleed from ALL the nipples on the front calipers.
You can do this job without a bleeder by gently stroking the brake pedal while bleeding the calipers. Best to do both circuits simultaneously. This approach can be tricky and has some down-sides, but it is the most common approach used world-wide because it requires no special tools.
DO NOT let the reservoir run empty while doing this job! There are a couple of high spots in this system, and if you get air into a high spot, you will have to get a pressure bleeder to push it out.

Opening brake calipers to change rear pads


There is a special tool required for this job. It expands a plate between the piston and caliper but also has a threaded rod through the middle that allows you to turn the piston clockwise as it gets pushed in.

I need to change front brake pads


You have two bolts to remove the caliper (it will still be attached to the flex hose). then use a C clamp to compress the caliper piston (one side on outside brake pad the other end on the back of the caliper). Inspect other components, replace pads and reinstall. I would highly recommend replacing rotors as well or at least having them turned. Its a pretty easy job if you have done similar jobs in the past.

sand any and all rust from wheel hub
apply a liberal coating of antisiezing compound.
replace rotor and one lug nut to hold rotor steady

replace new brake pads making sure squeel sensors are on inside upper corner, also make sure to apply caliper grease to caliper slides and pad sliding surfaces push caliper piston back.

PS. these are generic instructions that are very basic, performing a brake job is a very precise and careful job. remember this syetem is responcible for stoping your vehicle at 65mph. this is not a job to attemp if you do not have a good grasp of mechanical applications. One mistake could cause you your life or injurt to your persons or someone else. if you are not comfortable undertaking this task please consult a professional.

please feel free to ask any additional questions you might have.

My VW 1.9 Passat diesel y reg rear brake pads need changing, Is this an easy job for an average DIY man? Do I need special tools and anythiing to be aware of.


Yes you will need special tools for a rear brake job. you will need a set of xzn wrenches large ones say 12 and up to 18 I believe, and you will need a caliper tool that spins and compresses the caliper at the same time

Its has to come of from the back. Is a 45 min job in at the dealer, so it is a big job. All the bolts for taking it off are in the back,plus you have to take every thing of thats in the way, tire rod end, etc.
