SOURCE: How do I bleed my brakes on my Santa Fe?

There is a bleeder valve on the top of the caliper. Have another person pump the brake (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF) until the brake is solid with pressure. Now have them continue to apply pressure by slowly turning the bleeder valve counter clockwise until you hear air or see fluid being expelled. Once the brake pedal pumper has pushed the peddle to the floor have him keep pressure on the peddle until you re-tighten the bleeder valve. DO NOT HAVE HIM RELEASE PRESSURE WHILE THE VALVE IS OPEN or air can make its way to the master cylinder. Start with the tire furthest away from the master cylinder and work towards it. I know you are thinking, "but only one caliper has air in it". This does not matter once air is induced into the brake system. Each and every caliper must be bled to maintain safety and failure to do so can cost your your life along with someone elses.

SOURCE: right front brake caliper freezes up on occassion

You either need to rebuild it correctly, or replace it - which is the most common thing to do. Since you probably have crud in it, you may have the other side crud up as well, so the best thing to do would be to change both. -or redo both brakes on the front end. Hope this helps, Rick

SOURCE: i just replaced both front rotors and pads, along

You should start with the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger and then front driver. You need to do all four because the system was opened. even if you do not get any air from the other ones, it still needs to be done.

What tooks do you need to take off calipers


Two bolts hold the capliper solid in the caliper bracket that is fitted on the wheel hub. Just find the right size wrench for those two bolts (possibly 10 mm), remove them, and the caliper is free except for the brake hose leading to it. If removing completely from the car, remove the brake line at the union fitting, then unscrew it from the caliper.

Replacing caliper on 2002 dodge neon


The first thing is to make sure the caliper piston is all the way in, the caliper then slides over the brake pads and bolts on, make sure you have the correct caliper on the right side, the way to know this is when caliper is on the little bleeder screw should be on the top, if it is on the bottom then wrong caliper, try the other one,

After caliper is on you will then need to bleed the brake system,
This all depends on what happened, if the brake fluid did not all leak out and caliper was just bad then before removing brake hose off old caliper pinch rubber brake line with a pair of needle nose grips or there is a line crip tool that crips hose to avoid fluid from leaking out. this makes bleeding easier , other wise you will need to make sure fluid is full and start at the right rear wheel bleeding and move to left rear then right frt and last left front, you will need to keep an eye on the level of brake fluid and add as need to keep it from going empty,
you will need some one to pump and hold brake while you bleed them, pump pedal three times and hold down while you open bleeder screw, this is to be done to every wheel about four to five time to make sure all air is out . good day. note if pedal feels low bleed again wont hurt anything just a little more fluid lost.

Removal & Installation


CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
  3. Remove some brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  4. Disconnect and plug the brake fluid line from the caliper.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolt and guide bolt and remove the caliper from the mount. The brackets can be removed for additional work space.
  6. Remove the brake pads and clips from the caliper. Inspect the brake pads for wear; replace them, if necessary.

I am trying to change the brakes on a 2000 dodge neon and i need directions.


I assume just the front brakes?
You will need brake pads, brake cleaner, a small packet of brake grease, a large 4 inch C clamp, and possibly new rotors if the old ones are bad (abnormal wear or it they are out of spec).
Start by jacking up the car one one side after placing the car in park and putting the parking brake on. Remove one of the front tires. Now spray the brakes/caliper with the brake cleaner so that you won't be breathing in brake dust particles and this will help clean up the parts (try not to get the brake cleaner on plastic parts). The brake caliper holds on the brake pads with two large bolts that will be parallel with the axle. Remove these bolts. You should now be able to pull the caliper and brake pads off of the disc/rotor. Make sure not to wreck the brake line that runs to the caliper. Take off the outer brake pad. Now take the C clamp and use it to slowly depress the inner brake pad and caliper. Make sure you have the old brake pad on so as not to wreck the new one. Once depressed, remove the brake pad and put the new brake pads on. Make sure to then grease the two caliper bolts and reassemble the brake assembly. If you replace the disc/rotor, spray it first with the brake cleaner to clean off anything left from manufacturing. Repeat on the other side.
Make sure to pump the brakes before driving. Let me know how this works out for you.

Need to know how to change brakes rotors and calibers on 1996 gmc jimmy


Hi Friend:

#1) Break Loose your Lug Nuts,Just A Little don't Take-them off yet.

#2) Jack Front end off the Ground,Support with Good jack stands,Keep Truck in Park and Emergency brake Applied.

#3) Now Take off your Front Wheels-Tires.

#4) Now on the Inside of your brake rotor on each side,there are 2-Caliper mounting bolts. Allen Bolts 3/8" Allen Socket or Allen Wrench.Break the 2-Bolts loose and Remove them.

#5) Now after the Caliper Bolts are removed ,Loosen the Brake Line going to the Calipers using a Flare wrench.You'll need to have a Drain Pan handy to Catch the Brake Fluid.

#6) Now you'll need a C Clamp ,to compress the caliper piston back in the Caliper. NOTE: before you compress the Caliper pistons ,take off the master cylinder cover and using a suction bulb remove about 1/2 of the fluid from the Front Resevoir.the larger of the two.

#7) Now placing the C-Clamp over the Caliper housing turn it clockwise to compress the Piston all the way in.

#8) now you can remove your caliper and the pads,same for Both Sides. AND remove your Rotors they are held on by the Calipers and your Lug-Nuts.It Should come right off ,if its a little rusted and Stubborn take a Plastic Headed Hammer and Tap it all around the Old Rotor.Until it comes off.

#9) Now Slide your new Rotors on the HUB and over the lug nuts.

#10) Get your new caliper Making sure you have the Correct Caliper its Marked Left or Right Sides. It will only work on the Side its made for.

#11) Now put your Anti Rattel Clips on the Correct Sides(Inside) that fit into the New Caiper Piston.also use some brake lube on the back on the new brake pads where they touch the caiper housing.

#12) With both pads in the Caliper Slide the Caliper over your New Rotor. This is for both sides.

#13) Put your brake line back on using the new brass washers that came with your rotors/or Caipers.

#14) Now Put your Caliper Mounting bolts in and tighten up to 38 Foot Lbs.

#15) When you have both sides done Fill up your master Cylinder about a 1/4 " from top.

16) Now you'll need to bleed them ,Get a Friend and have them Slowly push the brake pedal down,after he says its down you open the bleeder valve until fluid and air come out==Now tighten it back before your friend raises his foot up off the pedal.During bleeding keep checking your Master Cylinder to keep it full of fluid.

#17) Start your bleeding from the Right Rear to Left Rear to Right Front and Last Left Front. Always bleed from the farthest brake or Wheel from the Master Cylinder and work your way to the Master.

#18) After you have No air coming out of the bleeder valve and you do have good clean brake fluid.Your Done Bleeding;You should have a Good tight and High Brake Pedal. NOTE: you DON't start the Truck to bleed the brakes.

#19) Now just Put your Tires back on and Tighten your Lug Nuts and you should have good Brakes.

I'm sure that this will get you good brakes and on the Road Again.

How to remove front rotors on a 96 acura 2.5 tl


take the wheels off do one side at a time once the wheels are off there should be two bolt on the caliper one at the top one at the bottom. Make sure not to take the brake line off and be sure to hang the caliper up on the suspension not to damage the brake line. once the caliper is off the should be two philips head screws in the middle of the caliper take those screws out and the rotor should come off. sum cars have a big nut holding on the caliper right in the middle of the caliper that needs remove to take off the caliper.

Normally, just a pad replacement would not necessitate brake bleeding. Most calipers are held on by two bolts, so I think the website was right. The reason you could not get the caliper off (and I am guessing here) is that you did not push the piston(s) back into their bores before trying to remove the caliper. Pushing the pistons back is always necessary to give you enough room to get the new pads into place. A C-clamp does this job well. Before pushing on the pistons with the C-clamp, you need to remove the cover of the brake fluid reservoir under the hood and put a towel or something over the top of it. Pushing the pistons in will push brake fluid back through the lines into the reservoir and will often cause it to overflow.

It sounds like the bolt you removed that started the brake fluid dripping was in fact what is called a bleeder valve. Now that the brake lines have been opened, you may in fact have to bleed the brakes after you get the new pads installed.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

How do i change the front brake pads


First make sure you have the park brake on
Raise the front end make sure to support with jack stands
Remove tires

this should leave the front brakes exposed

there are two slide bolts holding the caliper in place loosen both and remove

then wedge a screw driver between the inner pad and the rotor and lightly pry towards you to take some pressure off of the caliper

you should now be able to lift off the caliper it will still have the brake line attached to it so be sure to secure it to something ie a bungie strap to the suspension or something do not just let it hang by the brake line

slide out the old pads out of the caliper mounting braket

now take a caliper press and push the piston back into the brake caliper use the old inner pad do not push directly on the caliper piston (if you dont have a caliper press just substitute a c clamp it works fine)

if replacing the rotors remove the caliper bracket once again two bolts

remove the caliper bracket

remove rotor

Make Sure to inspect the caliper for leaks or damage

To install reverse and youll be done before you know it

Make sure to lube slide pins with a small amount of brake grease and make sure the caliper moves freely apon installation

After you have done both sides

set down car and slowly pump the brake pedal about 15 times to close the distance between caliper piston and brake pads thats all

I hope this helps
