You will first need to have a car jack, proceed to jack up the front side of the car you want to work on. Make sure you place the jack on the proper location, refer to instruction in manual. Take off your tire, now the whole brake assembly is visible, there will be two bolts on back of the brake unit. One at the top and one at the bottom. Unscrew both of these and proceed to slide the used pads and the unit you've just unscrewed. Make sure you clean off all dirt, rust and break pad rosedew. Now you'll need a C-clamp, The piece with the rubber protector on it needs to be compressed back into its compartment with the use of your C-clamp. Now that the unit is clean and the compressor is back in the chamber it's time to replace the small steel break sliders with the new ones provided with your new break set, slide your new breaks into those slots, beside the router. Your almost finished, just slide the break compressor back over the breaks and bolt the unit back on, make sure you tighten the bolts well , as these are your breaks and they will save your life. The only thing to do now is clean your tire inside and out while its off and put it back on your car. Have fun and don't worry it's easy.

I have a F150 p/u 2000 for 10yrs. Each year I change the brake pads. But the rear pads still looks like new. The front pads are worn down. What can be causing the problem?


normally, you replace the rear brake pads every other change in the front brake pads. for your case, it seems that the front brakes are the only ones working.

bleed your brakes to check if rear brakes are still working. after bleeding, check your brake master if it puts pressure equally to the 4 brakes.

I want to change my front brake pads How do I remove the old ones


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
For front brake pads. You should buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

Squealing sound - front driver's side brakes


This sounds like a wear indicator( a metal tab on the brake pad) is doing its job, warning you that the brake pads need replacement soon. you can bend the wear indicators away from the rotor so they won't make contact. This will stop the annoying noise. Replace the pads and check the brakes soon. Brake pads should always be changed on both wheels at thge same time, so change the other front pads also.

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.
