2001 brake pad replacement 2001 nissan quest

Is it necessary to have someone replace the brake pads on my 2001 nissan quest? Is it simple or do I need to take it in? I know to check the rotors and bleed the brake line but what's the simple way to do it?

Thanks Again!

    I believe that brake repairs are something that shouldn't be discussed on this repair site because there is just too much liability involved, that said, it's an easy job, but if you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be doing it.

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.

Master cylinder and/or brake booster could be the problem. A tiny bit of air in the system will effect your braking abilty. A fault in the ABS system would prompt the computer to trigger the ABS light. If you have brake shoes on the rear, make sure they are properly adjusted. Hope this helps.

The brakes on my 2001 nissan frontier are slow, whats the price to replace them?


This really depends on whether you need to replace the pads or the pads and the rotors. Assuming that you need to only replace the brake pads on the front of the vehicle you are looking to pay somewhere between $80-$150 to get it taken care of. A great site that you can visit to find out how much common car repairs should cost is http://repairpal.com/. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Make sure the rotors (the disks that the tire rim are mounted on), are smooth. If they are rough, then they are wearing your break pads down. Even if the break pads are new, bad rotors will grind them down. Change the rotors...

Remove wheel & tire,
remove 2 torx bolts that go from the inside to the outside of the vehicle. They are on the inner side of the brake caliper.
lift the caliper out of the rotor.
remove the brake pads.
To install, you must first squeeze the caliper piston back inot its bore. Do this slowly to prevent damage to the piston. You are forcing excess brake fluid back into the master cylinder reservoir. Slow constant pressure will get the job done. Use a large c clamp or a wooden hammer handel if that's all you have.
Fit the new brake pads in the calipers and slide the assembly back over the rotor.
install the 2 torx bolts, size 40? head I think.
You are done.
If rotors are scored bad, replace them too.
