Just observe how you take the old ones off. Pads can only snap in one way. It may take some effort but clean the caliper of rust you shouldn't have any problem. Remember to crack open your brake fluid reservoir before compressing the caliper!

SOURCE: cant fit drums over pads

You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.

make sure they are the correct ones by matching them up to the old ones and is so then you need to press the piston in to allow room for the new brake-pads

Visit the website and register the vehicle information. It doesn't cost anything and you will gain access to an online repair manual. The information on the braking system should be available for you there. The manual is a very handy resource for anyone doing their own automotive maintenance. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Could u please give me step by step instructions on how to fix my rear brakes how to bleed and what to unscrew to fit brake pad around rotor disc. Please i have to work. Dnt want to get fired.

You have to take the whole brake unit off the disc. Usually two bolts holding it to it's mounting. Fit the new pads to it and put it back on. You will have to force them apart to fit them over the disc. Should not need to bleed the brakes. Make sure the bolts are tight.

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

Remove and replace front disc brakes and rotors on 2003 landrover freelander

This is how I did it, 2003 TD4 Kalahari automatic, vented discs (earlier models have different size discs and calipers), without reference to any manual, so follow at your own risk if you feel confident and have the correct tools. It is a caliper off job, so common sense and strong wrist (to undo and retighten bolts is important). Check disc wear at the same time, to reduce the hassle of having to do it all again if the discs are shot.

Prepare a piece of stout cord. Slacken wheel nuts, jack car up and support on axle stands, remove wheel and site under front sill as precaution against axle stand/jack collapse and to clear out of area of operation, use 15mm socket to remove the two caliper fixing bolts on inside of hub. Ease caliper away from hub and tie up with cord (to reduce stress on brake hose. Remove clips from through pins and remove anti-squeal shim. Use pry bar between pads to open caliper fully (not recommended if you are going to re-fit same pads), remembering to seal reservoir to prevent fluid leakage. Try fitting new pads to caliper (I had to grind one pads metal lugs slightly to allow fitting to stainless sliders - another had already been machined by the manufacturer). Fit shims as per instructions with new pads. Re-fit anti-squeal shim & through pins and pin clips. Re-assemble in reverse sequence to dis-assembly. Car passed MOT ok, with good braking performance. NB it is important to check disc thickness. which my MOT station said is a minimum of 18mm, mine were at 19+mm after 40k.

The CD service manual is available on ebay for less than £5.00, so it might be worth checking that first, as I make no assertion that my way was the correct method, just that it worked.

Hope that helps.

Replace brake pads on chev. colorado pick-up

90% of the time the sequence is identical.

Slacken wheelnuts.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
Remove roadwheel.

There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.

Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.

Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.

With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.

Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.

ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.

Hope this helps.
