If you have done the front, the back should be the same, if you have all wheel disc brakes. If you have drum brakes, then it's a bit different, but not too hard. Let me know if you have Drum Brakes in the back. When it comes to drum brakes, it's best to use a book with written and visual directions. I promise it's not as hard as it looks. Once you've done one side you'll see how less complicated it really is, compared to how it looks. If you can, purchase a book ( I prefer a CHILTONS) as it is more descriptive in directions. If you cannot, let me know and I will do my best to walk you through it. I will also look online and give you the URL.

How to change front disc brake pads on 2000 Mazda Bravo B2500


jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible

Just changed rear brake pads on 05 mazda 6. now


This is normal and you need to keep pumping the brakes till they reset there self. Once the brake peddle have reset there self and is firm, check the brake fluid level again and add brake fluid if low. After brakes have reset there self, go for a test drive around the block and check the parking brakes. Good luck.

How do i change both front and rear brake pads on a 2004 mazda rx8?


CHANGING FRONT BRAKE PADS
Jack up the car. Take off your tire. Find the bolt on the back of the caliper and take it off. This should release the caliper, pull the caliper off the disc. Now you should be able to take the pad out. Replace the pad. You'll need a special tool to reset the caliper. As the brakes wear down, the caliper gets tighter so the brakes still work. I'm not sure exactly what its called, but you can borrow one from auto zone. Follow the instructions that come with it to reset the caliper. Slide the caliper back over the disc. If it doesn't go on, you need to reset the caliper more. Put the relese bolt back in. Put your tire back on.Drive slowly and test the brakes.
CHANGING THE REAR BRAKE PADS
The rear brakes on the rx8 are a bit different than most setups...be careful! The only way to move the piston back into the caliper is by way of a special allen head bolt that is directly behind the piston, on the back side of the caliper, installed under a 14mm bolt.
You have to remove this bolt to gain access to the allen head. As you loosen the allen head bolt(counter-clockwise), the piston will move back into the caliper.
Installation is pretty typical, again, the allen head bolt being the unusual part. The manual says to tighten this bolt until the pads contact the rotor, then loosen the bolt 1/3rd of a turn, then reinstall the 14mm bolt.

I have a 2005 mazda 6 and i know i need to change my brake pads. While i was driving home from work the brake light came on.I know this aint good but what exactly does that mean?


fi your brake fluid gets low it will cause the light to come on. being that you need pads this is probably why.As the pads wear down the caliper needs more fluid in it.If you top off now you will have fluid pushing out of master cylinder when you change pads as you press pistons back in.
