SOURCE: When replaceing front brake pads, did not find any

They go on the backside of the pad that butts up against the caliper piston. The clip clamps on the pad and sticks into the piston when the pad is installed.

Good luck.

SOURCE: how to replace anti-rattle clips in a 2002 chevy

You'll need to take out the pads agaon and clip the anti rattle plates to the back of the pads and then reassemble, the same way you did before....Don't open the brake lines or nipples just push the pistons into the cylinders with a convenient lever, so you have room for the new items to fit....Once fitted remeber to pump up the brakes before you start or move the vehicle....Regards Johngee

First, there is NO Pumping of the brake pedal
involved in bleeding brakes

I think your smart enough to know you
need to replace both rear brake hoses,
before you proceed with the bleeding

Describe your fixing brakes on a 2007 Ford Problem cant seem to re-assemble the caliper after inserting new pad on front brakes, the spring clip[s are in the way. The outer pad clips wont let the two...


Anti-rattle clips can really be a head scratcher. Try orienting them differently. Their purpose is to place a slight lateral pressure on the caliper so when your driving over RR tracks and stuff the calipers don't rattler around annoying the heck out of you. When installed they should be tight and snap into place.

    Good night please how can I change brake from my car saturn 1997 fron will



    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    Front Disc Brakes
    See Figures 1 through 8
    Always replace the brake pads in sets, meaning BOTH front wheels.
    1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it safely using jackstands, then remove the front wheels.
    2. Remove the lower caliper lock pin.

    The Saturn brake pad replacement procedure states that after removing the lower caliper pin, you can simply pivot the caliper to a vertical position in order to remove the brake pads. This procedure, when attempted on a 1992 SC with ABS, looked as if it would place excessive stress on the brake line. No changes in steering position seemed to alleviate this tension, so a full pivot for pad removal was not attempted. Another option is to remove the upper caliper pin, but not the lower pin, and simply pivot the caliper down for possible access. However, to prevent damage to the brake line you may wish to remove both guide pins and support the caliper assembly from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
    1. Pivot the caliper up or down on either guide pin or remove both guide pins and support the caliper from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
    2. Remove the 2 brake pads and the pad clips from the caliper support Discard the old pad clips.
    3. Check the caliper pins, pin boots and the piston boot for deterioration or damage.

    To install:
    1. Either by hand or using a C-clamp, bottom the piston all the way into the caliper bore.
    2. Carefully lift the inner edge of the piston boot by hand to release any trapped air.
    3. Install new pad clips into the caliper support.
    4. Install the inner and outer brake pads into the support. If installed, remove the temporary support wire from the caliper.
    5. Pivot or position the caliper body on the upper guide pin into position. Compress the boots by hand as the caliper is positioned onto the support.
    6. Lubricate the smooth ends of the lock and guide pins with silicone grease, then install the pin and tighten to 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm). Do not get grease on the pin threads.
    7. Repeat the procedure for the opposite side brake pads.

    Front pad replacement the correct method for replaceing front disc pads


    1. Step 1 Remove ½ of the brake fluid from the master cylinder with the syringe and replace the cover. Discard the fluid.
    2. Step 2
    3. Remove the front hubcaps and loosen the wheel nuts using the lug wrench, but do not remove the nuts.
    4. Step 3 Lift the front end of the LeSabre with the floor jack and secure safely onto the jack stands.
    5. Step 4 Remove the wheel nuts and wheels. Screw one wheel nut back onto a wheel stud hand tight to retain the rotor away from the caliper assembly.
    6. Step 5 Place a large C-clamp over the left inboard caliper housing and the outboard pad, and tighten to compress the caliper piston.
    7. Step 6 Remove the two caliper guide bolts using a box end wrench. Remove the caliper and secure it to the vehicle chassis with mechanic's wire or a metal hook.
    8. Step 7 Remove the outboard pad from the caliper on the LeSabre first. Pry it off the outboard caliper housing using the screwdriver.
    9. Step 8 Remove the inboard pad by lifting the retaining clips out of the caliper bore.
    10. Step 9 Clean the surface of the caliper bridge that contacts the backing plate of the pads using a wire brush, and apply a thin coat of brake lubricant to the contact points. Be careful not to let the lubricant get onto the rotor.
    11. Step 10 Install the new inboard brake pad and shim into the caliper piston bore by pressing the retaining clips into the bore until it locks into place.
    12. Step 11 Install the outboard pad onto the caliper housing, making sure to align the retaining clips into the holes in the caliper. Use the screwdriver to convince the clips onto the caliper if necessary.
    13. Step 12 Replace the caliper over the rotor.
    14. Step 13 Clean off the surface of the guide bolts and apply a light coat of lubricant to the smooth surface of them. Align them properly through the rubber boots and bolt the caliper to the knuckle. Tighten the guide bolts using the wrench. Remove the wheel nut from the wheel stud securing the rotor.
    15. Step 14 Replace the wheel and wheel nuts. Tighten the wheel nuts snugly, and re-tighten them (with a torque wrench is recommended set at 100 foot pounds) once the LeSabre is back on the ground.
    16. Step 15 Repeat steps 5 through 14 for the right side.
    17. Step 16 Pump the brake pedal when you're through to seat the new pads against the rotors, then check and add new brake fluid to the master cylinder.

    Installing front brake pads


      • Some of the fluid from the master cylinder
      • Wheels
      • 2 caliper guide pin bolts
      • Caliper assembly by swinging the top part of the caliper away from the brake rotor edge, then lift the caliper assembly up
      • Outboard brake pad by prying the brake pad retaining clip over raised area on the caliper. Then slide the pad down and off the caliper.
    1. Before removing the inboard brake pad, use a large C-clamp to press the piston back into the caliper. This will prevent possible damage to the caliper piston. It is good practice to remove some (1/3–1/2) of the brake fluid from the reservoir. This is because as the caliper piston is pushed back into the caliper, brake fluid will be pushed back through the lines, back into the master cylinder and fluid reservoir, possibly causing the reservoir to overflow.
      • Inboard brake pad by pulling away from piston until the retainer clip is free from the cavity in the piston. 0900c152802197b8.jpgRemoval and installation of the disc brake pads
    To install:
    1. Lubricate both the caliper mating surface and the machined abutment surfaces with multi-purpose lubricant.
    2. Before brake pad installation, be sure to lightly coat the outer backing plate surface of the new brake pads with a disc brake pad anti-squeal lubricant, usually a gel-like material that deadens any high-frequency vibration that can be the source of disc brake squeal.
    3. Install or connect the following:
      • Brake pads into the caliper assembly making sure both pads are seated securely onto the caliper
      • Caliper assembly back into position over the brake rotor
      • Caliper guide pin bolts and torque to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm)
      • Wheels and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
    4. Top off the master cylinder to the appropriate level, using DOT 3 type brake fluid only.
    5. Before moving the vehicle, pump the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained. Road test the vehicle to make sure the brake operation is normal.

    Help with changing fron brakes on a 2006 dodge ram truck


    After you have removed the caliper from the caliper mounting bracket, remove the pads and guides.  Make sure you have fully depressed the caliper's piston fully then you can start by putting the little guides back in then reloading the new pads back in the caliper.  Be sure to use some caliper grease on the caliper mounting bolts (the bolts that hold the caliper in place).  If you don't use grease on these mounting bolts, your caliper won't slide right and you can have uneven wear on your pads.  This could easily cause overheating.  Once you place the caliper back in the mounting bracket and tighten the caliper mounting bolts back down tight you are all done.  Put your wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts and you're done!
    MAKE SURE WHEN YOU FIRST START THE TRUCK FOR A TEST DRIVE AFTER INSTALLING THE BRAKES, YOU NEED TO PUMP THE BRAKES BACK UP!!!!  IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL START DRIVING AND HAVE NO BRAKES!!!  PUMP YOUR BRAKES ABOUT 10-15 TIMES FULLY OR UNTIL THE BRAKE PETAL SEEMS FIRM.  ALLOW THE BRAKE PETAL TO COME ALL THE WAY BACK UP BEFORE PUMPING THEM AGAIN.
