Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck
Unassembled brakes, cannot figure how to re assemble. do you take the clips off put on new pads, and then slide the clips back in?
After you have removed the caliper from the caliper mounting bracket, remove the pads and guides. Make sure you have fully depressed the caliper's piston fully then you can start by putting the little guides back in then reloading the new pads back in the caliper. Be sure to use some caliper grease on the caliper mounting bolts (the bolts that hold the caliper in place). If you don't use grease on these mounting bolts, your caliper won't slide right and you can have uneven wear on your pads. This could easily cause overheating. Once you place the caliper back in the mounting bracket and tighten the caliper mounting bolts back down tight you are all done. Put your wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts and you're done!
MAKE SURE WHEN YOU FIRST START THE TRUCK FOR A TEST DRIVE AFTER INSTALLING THE BRAKES, YOU NEED TO PUMP THE BRAKES BACK UP!!!! IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL START DRIVING AND HAVE NO BRAKES!!! PUMP YOUR BRAKES ABOUT 10-15 TIMES FULLY OR UNTIL THE BRAKE PETAL SEEMS FIRM. ALLOW THE BRAKE PETAL TO COME ALL THE WAY BACK UP BEFORE PUMPING THEM AGAIN.
