The bolts pull out after being unscrewed Rock the caliper back and forth to release the pads and caliper assy. from the anchor assy. If you are removing the rotors to be cut then you have to remove the larger bolts holding the anchor bracket . TIP the piston on the the LEFT side is turned clockwise to collapse BUT the piston on the RIGHT side is turned COUNTER-CLOCKWISE

On a 2005 vehicle-- at most-- you may need
new rotors & pads,that is all

I'm lost at that story

Don't really grasp what your doing
or what you got yourself into

70000 mile brakes ware not even. this never happen in other trucks what size t takes front off and does a 19 socket take back off back brakes I plan to have them cut and change pads


The rear caliper cradle bolts are 18mm. A 19 may round the bolts off a bit.As far as them wearing unevenly we see this alot on the dual piston calipers.This may be due to rust underneath where the pads sit on the cradle. On the caliper cradle you will see some silver tin caliper hardware where the pads sit remove these and check for rust that may have built up benath these and clean if necessary. Once those are clean apply a thin coat of caliper lube then reinstall the caliper hardware. Make sure to also lubricate the hardware with lube before reinstalling your pads.Last but not least apply lubricant to the caliper guide pins.This will reduce that uneven wear you were referring to.

Will I need a caliper reset tool kit to change the brakes on my 2007 toyota sienna or will a standard c-clamp do the job? And since it is an ABS system, I assume that brakes must be bled, correct?

2005 yukon denali rear brake pad replacement> how to remove calipers? what bolts to remove? what size are they?


These use a seperate drum brake inside the rotor. The caliper will come off with the removal of 2 bolts. The caliper comes up, push the piston in using a "C" clamp or large channel lock pliers. Simply slide out the pads and replace as necessary. Use a silicone grease on the slide pins and on the back of the pads to prevent squeeks. Professionally I would use AC Delco pads. Anything else could create more noises and other issues! Let me know if you need diagrams or anything else.

On 2001 gmc yukon rear disc brakes after u loosn the bolts on the caliper do they come all the way out and do u have to remove the bracket that holds the caliper on


It should pull off, you may have to get a big "C" clamp and push the caliper piston back, or sometimes you can pry the piston back with a bar or screwdriver, be careful what you pry on.

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.

2000 Yukon brake caliper


The problem may be with the rubber hose to the caliper. I have seen them come appart inside. You can check it by loosening the hose at the caliper, using a flat screwdriver compress the pad. If it moves free it is the hose. Good Luck.
