Instructions on changing front brakes on a 1993 delta88 oldsmobile 1993


Instructions
    • 1Loosen the lugs nuts using the tire iron. Place the wood blocks in front of the tires you will not be removing.
    • 2 Raise the vehicle using the floor jack. Set the jack beneath the support strut that runs along the outer edge of the undercarriage. Raise it enough to allow the tires to clear the ground. Place the jack stands underneath the same strut as the jack.
    • 3 Remove the lugs nuts completely and take the tire off. Set these all aside.
    • 4 Remove the mounting bracket bolts with a socket wrench. The mounting bracket is the metal half-circle that is revealed when you remove the tire. Tie the mounting bracket to the undercarriage with rope to prevent stress damage to the brake line.
    • 5 Remove the brake pads from the bracket by hand.
    • 6 Compress the caliper cylinder with the C-clamp. The caliper cylinder is the 3- to 6-inch wide cylinder in the center of the bracket. Make sure that it is flush with the bracket.
    • 7 Install the new brake pads where the old ones were.
    • 8 Reattach the mounting bracket to the rotor. Reattach the tire and finger-tighten the lug nuts. Lower the vehicle and the tighten all of the nuts with the tire iron.

Brake Hose replacement


  • Clean around the old brake lines carefully before removing them to prevent any gunk or debris from getting into the brake line connections.
  • Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap, cover it with some plastic wrap and replace the cap. This prevents too much fluid from leaking out when changing the brake hoses.
  • Take the tire off of the car and loosen the brake lines at each end. Plug the brake line at the fender to prevent too much fluid leakage. Save the washers and reuse them after removing the old brake line.
  • Line up the new brake line hex nut with the bracket and hand tighten it before putting the metal clips back on. Tighten with a wrench after the clips are in place.
  • Make sure to torque the brake lines to the manufacturers' specifications for the brakes to work properly.
  • Repeat the process for each tire and brake line on your car.
  • Bleed the brakes as necessary after replacing the brake lines and make sure you have plenty of brake fluid in your reservoir.

How to change rear rotors on a 2004 dodge ram 1500


Remove the tire, and the rotor pulls straight off like the tire. Unless you have disk brakes. In that case, feel the back of the caliper "its whats holding the rotor on" you will feel 2 bolts. Remove them. The caliper slides off sideways. Then just slip the rotor off. The caliper will just dangle there until your ready for it. You do not need to remove the brake lines.

How to instll front struts on 1998 Ford Escort?


You "do not" need a strut spring compressor to change the struts on a 1998 ford escort.

Place the front of the car on jack stands, and remove the front tires.

Disconnect and remove the 2 bolts (at the bottom of the strut) that attach the strut to the knuckle (you may need air impact to break them free).

Remove the brake lines from the line retainer on the strut: If you open the brake lines you will need brake fluid, and need to bleed the brake system (to avoid opening the brake system, cut the line retainer from the old strut).

Inside the hood remove the circular cap that covers the top retaining nut on the strut. Remove the top retaining nut, then remove the strut.

Install new struts in reverse. To align the new strut to the knuckle, use a screwdriver to start the aligment, then insert the retaining bolts. If you cut the brake line retainers from the old struts, use plastic zip ties to attach the brake lines to the new struts.
