OK GET A PENCIL. JACK THE CAR UP AND REMOVE THE WHEEL. REMOVE THE TWO BOLTS ON THE BACK-SIDE OF THE CALIPER. THEY MAY HAVE PLASTIC CAPS ON THEM TO PREVENT DIRT AND WATER TO GET INSIDE THEM. YOU MAY NEED AN ALLEN KEY TO UNBOLT THEM. THEN USING A FLAT-HEAD SCREWDRIVER BETWEEN THE PADS AND PISTON CAREFULLY PRY THE OPENING OF THE CALIPER OPPOSITE THE LUGS, TO LOOSEN THE PADS ENOUGH TO REMOVE THE CALIPER. SUPPORT THE CALIPER WITH A BUNGEE CORD OR ROPE TO THE COILSPRING. THEN USING THE OLD INBOARD BRAKE PAD IN PLACE, TAKE A 6 INCH C-CLAMP AND COMPRESS THE PISTON(S) BACK INTO THE CALIPER TO ALLOW THE NEW PADS TO FIT. P.S. AS THE OLD PAD WEARS, THE PISTON SLOWLY, OVER TIME, COMES OUT OF THE CALIPER TO GRIP THE ROTOR. OKAY THEN INSTALL THE NEW PADS MAKING SURE THEY ARE INSTALLED WITH THE BLACK STEEL SIDE NOT TOUCHING THE ROTOR. INSTALL THE CALIPER BOLTS AND TIGHTEN SNUGLY. YOU WILL NOTICE A SPACE IN BETWEEN THE ROTOR AND THE NEW PADS. GENTLY PUMP THE BRAKE PEDAL 2 OR 3 TIMES UNTIL THE PEDAL GETS HARD AGAIN. INSPECT THE PADS AND CALIPER, AND REPLACE WHEEL. REPEAT ON THE OTHER SIDE. BE SAFE WHEN JACKING UP AND WORKING NEAR A CAR ON A JACK. USE JACK-STANDS IF AVAILABLE. THIS SHOULD BE ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW. HOPE THIS HELPS. KEEP ME POSTED PLEASE. THANK YOU FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

Brake lights on my 2000 Ford mustang won't work and fuses are fine and already replaced stop light switch. I'm stumped.


Does your high mount brake light work, if so then the multi function switch may be the problem. The brake lights work through it.

Brake lights on 1993 ford mustang doesnt work


Did you change the bulbs? It might also be bad wiring. You can check the wiring by using voltmeter connected to the brake light and then have someone depress the brake pedal. If there is not 12- 14 volts on the meter then you most likely have a loose or broken wire somewhere.

My ABS light is turned on, on my dashboard. I have 2003 Mustang with V6 engine. Thanks!


Check/replace brakes if needed But, if you had those brakes replace recently, take the car back to the shop that did it and tell them what's wrong and that you demand they fix it. But, before you do al of that, check your brake fluid level.
If your brake fluid is full then you my need to bleed your brakes or replace ABS sensors on your disk brakes which isn't easy or cheap
