SOURCE: worn brake pads

Front brake pad exchange guide.

Step1 Park the Dodge Durango on a flat surface. Put the emergency brake on and put wedges behind the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Drain 2/3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder, using a syringe. Remove the wheel and the tire assemblies. Step2 Compress the caliper piston back into the caliper bore using a large C-clamp to drive the piston into the bore. Use additional force if it is required. Using a 3/8 inch hex wrench or socket remove the caliper mounting bolts. Step3 Rotate the caliper rearward off the rotor and out from its mount. Remove the inboard and outboard brake pads. Remove the spring clip that holds the inboard brakes in the caliper. Tilt the pad out at the top to unseat the clip. Remove the retaining spring that secures it in the caliper. Unseat one spring end and rotate the pad out of the caliper. Step4 Suspend the caliper assembly from the Durango frame using mechanic's wire. Do not allow the caliper assembly to dangle from the brake hose as this may damage the brake hose. Step5 Clean the surfaces of the caliper and steering knuckle with a wire brush. Apply multi-mileage grease or similar product. Using brake fluid or break cleaner clean the caliper slide pins. Apply a light coating of silicone grease to the pins. Step6 Install the inboard brake pad and it's spring. Install the outboard brake pad. Install the caliper over the rotor and seat it in its original position until it is flush. Using a torque wrench, torque the slide caliper pins to 22 ft./lbs. Step7 Add brake fluid to the master cylinder. Bleed the brakes. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery. Start the engine and pump the brakes 3-4 times to seat the brake pads. Reinstall the wheels. Test drive the Durango at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.
Rear brake pad exchange.

Step1 Lift the Durango off the ground with a car jack. Support the vehicle on all sides with jack stands. Keep children and small animals out of the vicinity when you replace the brakes. Step2 Loosen the lug nuts on the wheels with a torque wrench. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies and set them aside, face up, to prevent damage. Step3 Compress the caliper and remove it by lifting the top up and off the caliper adapter. Hang the caliper from the Durango's frame with mechanical wire. Step4 Remove the inboard and outboard brake shoes from the caliper adapter. Take off the top and bottom anti-rattle springs. Keep the springs separated, as they aren't interchangeable. Step5 Press the piston into the bore with a C-clamp. To prevent damage to the pistons, insert an old brake shoe in between the C-clamp and caliper piston. Remove the C-clamp. Step6 Wipe down the caliper mounting adapter and anti-rattle springs with brake cleaner. Grease the anti-rattle springs with brake grease. Install the bottom anti-rattle springs, followed by the top anti-rattle springs. Step7 Install the inboard brake shoes followed by the outboard brake shoes. Replace the caliper and the wheel and tire assemblies. Lower the vehicle to the ground and pump the brakes to seat the pistons.


Please rate and god bless:)

Good Morning. How do I change front brake disc of a Toyota Quantum 2.5 d4d please. thank you.


the fsm covers this
alldata.com coves this
and 1000s for youtube and google searched links tool.

are you asking how to do brake service, with no training?
read a book on brakes, here are 100s at the library, or at barnes and noble.
part of brake service is not just swapping pads
its inspections, and fluid purging, (maintenance to make it last longer and not fail, and cause and accident)
why not just get it service, or take an ASE class on brakes 10x better..

On the driver side front left brake pads are smoking and the rim very very hot to the touch.I change the caliper and the car work fine...for about 1 day and back to the same problem.the car will not move i...


Sounds like the rotors may be needing resurfacing. The rotor may be out of round or worn down to the metal causing your brake pads to wear out quickly.

Sharp squeaking from rt rear wheel. Might be a bearing but it stops if i apply light brake pressure


your rear brakes need servicing!!Those sqeaking noises are from metal pins within the brake pads. They touch the rotor surface when the pads are worn. Usually when brakes are applied they tend to silence the squeal. Inspect the rear brakes for pad thickness. Hopefully this helpd!!

My parking brake is coming on and off. but my parking brake is not on. could this be a wiring problem, the fuses seem to be fine


THE LIGHT FOR THE PARKING BRAKE IS SOMETIMES ALSO USED FOR LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL OR WORN OUT BRAKE PADS. CHECK THE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL, A FLOAT ACTIVATES A SWITCH WHEN THE LEVEL IS LOW. IF THE LEVEL IS VERY LOW BUT THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A LEAK, CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE BRAKE PADS (FRONT & REAR). WHEN THE BRAKE PADS WEAR OVER TIME, BRAKE FLUID REMAINS IN THE CALIPERS TO COMPENSATE FOR MATERIAL WORN OFF. ALSO A SMALL METAL CONTACT EMBEDED IN THE BRAKE MATERIAL WIRED TO THE PARKING BRAKE LAMP, WILL MAKE CONTACT WITH THE DISC (GROUND) WHEN BRAKE PAD MATERIAL WEARS OFF AND LIGHTS THE LAMP.

My Toyota Echo Brake Pedal freezes when trying to stop. It has done this few times. While trying to stop the brakes froze, and I had to hit them very hard...almost like kicking..what should I do?


get it inspected, You may just have one sticking caliper that need replacement. the brake pads will be pretty worn on that wheel so you may needs pads also.

I am wearing out front brake pads about every 2 months and hardly ever have to put back ones on. Toyota Camry 1996 It seems as if the back ones may not be working properly?


Well, the first thing that comes to mind, is to be careful of how you stop and accelerate in your vehicle. Take off slowly, and stop with plenty of room and without slamming on the breaks. No quick stops or take offs.

Being with that in mind, it might be time to have your front and rear end re-aligned. Which can usually be down at your local tire or brake service store.

Your other options are worn out Brake Calipers or faulty suspension.

I drove 120 miles to visit family and left the RAV sitting for 4 days. Upon leaving there was, and continues to be a severe ''grinding'' when the brakes are applied. Suggestions?


check your brake rotor s and replace brake pads if need to but base on what you explain your brake are worn and touching metal each time you apply the brakes and thats not good for your vehicle

When gear is put in reverse it makes a squeeling sound but just in that gear.


Check the brake pads, see if the pads are worn down to the "squealers"; these are metal tabs 9on the pads) that indicate that the brake pads are worn to the replacement thickness.
They commonly squeal only in reverse.
