Question about 2002 Volvo S40

Hi. I normally replace my other car's break pads which is quite easy by loosening the clip, and calliper bolt at back of disc and slowly pushing back calliper to fit new pad........Is this the same on 2003 volvo s40 2.0 or should I rather take to dealer to do....problem is they are very expensive Just scared I might damage sensors of ABS etc Please advise ?

Being careful. It is the same thing. Take extra care in locating the sensor when replacing the break pads.

    It is located right near the shaft after removing the rest of the components.

How do you replace front pads


remove the callipers from off the disc rotors. remove the loose pad and use a piston mover to push the inner pad and piston fully back into the calliper .replace the pads and slip calliper back over the disc and re-tension mount bolts
make all spring and plates are replaced in the correct positions
when doing this I open the bleed nipple for the calliper I am working on as I push the piston back. It makes it easier and doesn't overfill the reservoir. When the piston is full back tighten the bleed screw
when the job is done pump the brake pedal several times to adjust the clearance of the pads back onto the disc.

Should piston go all the way back where it is flush with piston outer housing?


Measure the thickness of the disc. It could be thin enough with the worn bads that the piston is coming out so far that it is binding in the bore.

Changing the front brake pads.


first off, you need to buy the break pads, break caliper spreader, and you need to know if the bolts have a allen wrench head or a torques head, you can find that out by turning your wheel all the way to the left after you remove the front left tire, take a small hand mirror and look on the back side of the calliper, once you know what it is, you need the socket or wrench that fits it, remove the bolts, then the calliper will pull off by wiggleing it off, then remove the outside pad, take the break calliper spreader and place it the way the break pad sat and screw it pushing the calliper cylinder back as far as possible, then take the calliper spreader off and remove the other pad, install the new pads into the break calliper and replace the calliper back onto the router, (the round disc the calliper was on) line up the holes on the calliper and replace the bolts.......once you have put the calliper back on you must pump the peddle untill they are hard again, about 3-6 times or untill you cant go to the floor anymore. once they are solid again, replace your tire and you should be good to go.....................hope this helps.

Brack pad change on 2003 volvo s40


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.
