SOURCE: how to refit disc brakes after replacing disc pads

Use a "C"clamp and squeeze the caliper piston all the way in and it will then allow the new pads and caliper to reinstall. just be sure to check the brake fluid to make sure it is full and pump the brake pedal several times before driving the car to reset the adjustment on the disc brakes.

SOURCE: telstar tx5 rear disc brake piston will not retracted

You take the bolt from behind the cylinder and then you should see a 4mm allen key head. turn it and push cylinder in. take the bleeder valve off to relieve any pressure also and while screwing with an allen key its important to know that it is leftr hand thread. :)

SOURCE: cant compress rear brake piston to fit new pads,

The rear caliper piston turns inward,by pushing,and turning the piston at the same time.One side goes left,and the other side,turn right.Go in as far as it will go.Be sure to line the piston up,so that the brake pads line up to fit in the notches on the pads.You can purchase the tool to do this at a auto parts store.Hopefully this helped you.

SOURCE: new brake rear discs and pads on a ford mondeo 03

Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow pressure to escape. Use a large C clamp connecting it to the front of the piston and back of the housing. Turn the screw on the clamp to compress the brake piston then release the clamp. The piston will remain compressed allowing you the fit the housing over the new brake pads.

Thought back brake pads etc needchanging as could feel grinding and was squealing when brakes applied.tyrns out was worn tyre on rim had that changed but can still hear the noise. Its annoying


Hi, your problem is your brake caliper it could be its not coming on properly to lock on to the disc . When they don't lock on like they should you will get a squealing also on some disc brakes you get anti squeal shims fitted. With some lower quality brake pads you may get squealing. I don't know what kind is fitted on your motor brake pads but its worth another look . The worst outlook is the brake pads are worn right down and you are grinding metal to metal ie disc to pad without anything in between.Should get it looked at.

Front wheel bearings


first check the pads have not worn down to metal if they have the disc will have to be replaced , if the disc is in good condition and the pistons are free press them back into the cylinders and then the pads can removed .check the master cylinder does not over flow as the pistons are pushed back. Brake fluid is a paint remover. the wheel bearings don't have to be touched to replace pads. After new pads are fitted the brakes will have pumped to bring the pads out to the disc.

FRONT BRAKEPADS LIGHTS FLIKKER


I take it you mean the brake pad wear light is flickering. It is an indication that the brake pads need changing, before they damage the brake discs. A wire fitted to the pad contacts the disc and puts a light on, on the dash. If the pads are ok then there is a wiring fault to earth putting the light on.

1989 toyota pickup front disk brake pads replaced, now the front calipers wont clear the new disk brake pads! Any solutions, please?


remove caliper, push disc all way home, put wheel nut on to hold home, retry fitting them the disc may be slightly scued. If no go try diffrent brand of pad I had same prob with a diffrent car last week & diffrent brand pad was 2mm thiner. If can't exchange pads get piece of emery paper on flat surface & sand away top part of pad material in round motions both ways till they fit. :-)

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.

Front disc brake installation


Brake discs with pads need to be changed both sides on the same axle. Slacken the lug nuts and then lift the corner of the car and remove the wheel. Put a screwdriver tip between the brake pad and the disc and twist until a couple of millimeters of gap has opened up, do this front and back of the disc. Now remove the two large caliper securing bolts and lift the caliper up. locate the caliper body so that its weight does not pull on the rubber brake hose ( piece of wire to hold it temporarily to the strut spring is good). The disc is located by a couple of small screws. Remove these and the disc will come off the wheel studs. Fit the new disc and reinstate by reversing the steps above. Note if you have pushed the pads back far enough when removing the calipers then the caliper should refit easily over the unworn and therefore fatter new disc even with new pads fitted. put a small dab of anti-seaze grease (CopperEaze or similar) on the back of each pad as this will prevent squeal. Tighten the caliper bolts thoroughly when reassembling. Remember to pump the brake peddle back to pressure to re-seat the new pads to discs before test driving. Now do the same to the other side. If you are new to this the fist wheel is a voyage of discovery and the second wheel will take a quarter of the time.
