It is the same as the older cars.
Just change the pads as usual.
It`s when you come to bleed the brakes that problems arise.

My abs light as come on do i have to change my brake pads ???


Normally this means there is a problem with the ABS. It may or may not mean the pads need replacing and more than likely that is not the problem. Inspect the brake pads to see if they need replacing. If not then you have a problem with the ABS that needs to be diagnosed by a professional.

If your car has antilock brakes, changing the pads is a bit different than what most people are used to. With a normal (non-ABS) car, you just unbolt the caliper, press apart the old pads to retract the piston, then replace the pads. This procedure forces much of the brake fluid out of the caliper and back into the master cylinder. The fluid is put back once you step on the brakes.

With an ABS car, you CAN'T force the fluid back; if you do you'll damage the ABS valve body (£800). Instead, you must open the caliper bleed screw and drain the excess fluid out of the caliper while you press the piston back into the bore. This is very important! If you force the dirty, water-contaminated fluid back through the relatively fragile valve body, you'll ruin it.

Also, did you know that you are supposed to replace all of the brake fluid in an ABS car once each year? That's different from older-style cars too.

After car wash, brakes made a screeching noise. How do I get rid of this? It sounds like metal rubbing against metal so I haven't moved it.


SOUNDS LIKE U HAVE METALLIC PADS. TOTALLY NORMAL. THE PADS WILL BED IN AND THE SCREECHING SOUND WILL GO AWAY. SUGGEST U GET A BETTER NON-METALLIC PAD INSTALLED IF U DON'T WANT TO HEAR SCREECHING NOISES EVERY TIME THE PADS GET WET. I'M ALSO ASSUMING U HAVE NO MORE THAN 50,000 MILES ON THE PADS AND THE PADS AND DISCS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE.

I changed the brake pads on a 05 equinox


Did you bump the ABS pickup at the wheel hub when you changed the brakes? Or are the wires maybe nicked? The noise is normal and might go away depending on the brake pad type you replaced with. The ABS problem might be caused by you.

Brake pad change


yes, the process is the same. the ABS sensor isn't physically attached to any of the brake components, so don't sweat it. (please rate my answer)

Abs light on as well as brack light on the das


brake pads are the ONLY way to stop you going like 30mph+ when you hit like a wall or person or like another road user & if you do crash YOU will be totally at fault for having an unfit car. The best way to get the lights on your dash to go out is to fit new pads. The lights show that the time when the brakes WILL fail is drawing very near, it is stilll up to you to get the pads changed. You will not get any further warnings from your car prior to not being able to stop at all thus causing endangerment. You will be shocked at just how bad they were when you feel the new pads.
