One bolt to remove, and the caliper will swing out of the way. Get a C-clamp and loosen the brake bleederand compress the piston back into the caliper. Tighten the bleeded screw & take the clamp back off after the bleeded screw is tighten!!!! When U purchase the pads, make sure the you get the jelley type, RTV the you put on the metal of the pad backing to keep the brakes from squeeling when you apply the brakes going down the road, Install the pads, and put bolt back on. Your finish, brake job done.

Nissan Premira 2002, european spec. When replacing brakes pads w/ABS, are there any adjustments required or resetting procedures? My email is address

The vehicle being worked on was jacked up and supported by sturdy jack - stands. All four wheels were removed to access disc brake assemblies. Tools utilized (1) C clamp for the front caliber to press piston back in it bore and (2) a special tool for the rear to return caliber back in it bore. Replaced pads and all pertinent hardware, torque all fasteners to specification and wheel assemblies. Road tested vehicle and checked for noise and rattles. So thanks for the tip that was given and I wish you and your staff a nice sunday.

Sometimes it runs ok,then every now and then it stutters and sometimes there is no fuel getting through,its a nissan micra 1993 model

My 93 nissan truck had a similar problem with stuttering that was fixed by replacing the fuel pump. Hitting a bump or even slamming the tailgate would cause it to start.

Replacing front brake pads on Nissan 2000 Hardbody model 2000

pull the wheels off .undo brake fluid cover .On the back of rotor there are 2 long pins that you have to remove to pull the caliper off.After the caliper is off pull the old brake pads off ,remembering which way they came off.Now with either a large C-Clamp ,or large channell lock pliers compress the large round metal part that pushes against the back of brake pad.The idea is this,your new pads wont fit on the rotor unless you compress this part ALL the way down,that is why you took the fluid cover off earlier,so the back pressure can go back into the brake fluid reservoir .Once you have this part pushed in ,install the 2 pads and put the whole thing back over and on the rotor .Last of all put the long pins back on tight, put the wheel on ,and now do the other side.............Good luck ! Patience is Key !!
Please rate this !! Thank You!
