SOURCE: changing front brake pads on a kia rio 2004

ok first you have to take the wheel off
then you will see the caliper there'
there are to bolts behind that take them out
then take the caliper off dont undo nothing else
take the old pads out
use a caliper to push the cylinder back (its what pushes the brake in)
put the new brakes in the same way they came off
do the bolts up
then pump the brakes
is the cylinder is to hard to push back you will have to realse the pressure buy undoing the bleeder then you will have to bleed them again (but in this case they should move easy

SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

SOURCE: 2006 Kia Spectra 5 rear brake disc replacement

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot

No spark just means when you connected the wiring plugs, you either missed the one to the distributor or it isn't plugged all the way in.

Scraping noise coming from passenger front end of 2006 kia spectra LX ? Can you advise possible problem? Noise goes away when step on brakes


Replace your front brake pads. They have a metal sensor that tells you when you are about 80% worn and maintenance is due soon. If you would like to do it yourself and need instructions, let me know.

What is the recommended mileage to change the timing belt on 2004 kia spectra lx sedan?


i believe it to be 200 from the dealer but i would recomend having it inspected every year it only a few extra bucks once a year and it's a lot cheeper than doing a valve and head job on your car
