Replacing front and rear pads

Are any special tools needed to replace the rear and front brake pads on a 2006 dodge charger? the older cars you could use a screwdriver and c clamp to push the caliper pistons back in. is it the same way on the newer models?

There's a clucking noise coming from the front driver side of my 2006 Dodge Charger R/T. What could possibly need replacing if I already changed the tie rods and brake pads?


Stabalizer links. To check them you will need to have both front tires off the ground at the same time. Grab the stabilizer bar where it attaches to the link. Push up and pull down on the bar. If you feel any movement replace them. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Put in a new master cylinder and the brake booster and bleed the brakes..... brake still not catching... goes almost to the floor.... What next? (2006 dodge grand caravan)


have you replaced the front and rear brake pads (for older vehicles, rear wheels use brake shoes instead of brake pads). if yes, check your calipers. completely remove it from your tire and have it cleaned.
if the problem still persists, then its time to replace your hydrovac

WHAT TOOLS ARE NEEDE TO REPLACE AUDI A3 SPORTSBACK FRONT BRAKE PADS


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 must 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 exists, 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!!!

How much would it cost to get my brakes fixed on a 2006 vw passat? also, what about replacing the grill?


an 06 passat has special rear calipers that have to be taken in by a scan tool if you try to turn them in you will damage parking brake motor the brakes also need reset after installation by scan tool or there will be codes in parking brake circuit but the fronts are normal except for sensors on the inboard pads but i beleive at the dealer its around 800 for rotors and pads all the way round the grille im not sure of maybe 150-200 total

2006 dodge ram 2500 4x4 diesel replace brake pads front and back


Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.
