Open the bleeder screw and use a C Clamp to compress it down ten close the bleeder screw. They also make a tool to compress the caliber as well but open the bleed screw or you could damage your ABS.

SOURCE: cooling fan for acura tl 2000 does not work

If you can locate the temperature switch, looks like a large bolt head with 2 wires on it, bridge the wires on it, and this should make the fan work. If the fan works then this switch is faulty. If the fan doesn't then it could be the fuse, or a broken wire.
The fan switch is either on the radiator or on the thermostat housing.
If you can get to it easy, short across with a screwdriver.

SOURCE: 2000 Acura RL and 2000 Acura Integra GS ABS light on

The SRS computer needs to be reset, if you dont have a repair manual i would first suggest finding one for each car. The basic principal is that you jumper the diagnostic plug (under the glove box in the RL). The next step I believe is that you must depress the TCS button, then while holding it down you turn the key to on, continue to hold the TCS button for 15 sec and then let off. The check engine light should then blink really quick a few times and that means its reset. Im reciting this from memory so dont quote me on it. I have done it before for the RL but not the integra, id really suggest finding a repair manual though.

SOURCE: Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a

You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

Whats the best way to squeeze the 4 pistons back into the caliper?


If your talking about front disk calipers use a caliper compressor, if you talking about the rear calipers, bleed the rear caliper while compressing the pistons in with your fingers or pliers.

I can't seem to compress the rear brake calipers when trying to replace the brake pads on a 2006 Mercury Montego, what am I missing?


With a pair of needle nose pliers turn the pistons clockwise to set them back to base position. The V shape groves are not too deep on the pistons, so make sure you have gloves on, in case of the pliers slip out while turning it.

Brake problem with Acura RL 3.5 mAASSTER CYLINDER


temp does not matter. when changing out brake components like master cylinder you need to bleed the brakes from air in the lines. you do this by having a freind pump brakes 5-7 times holding foot on brake last stroke then you open the bleeder screw on the calipers and close them. air and fluid will come out, bleed each caliper 2-3times.

How do you take the front caliper off a 1990 toyota camry? i undid the 2 bolts on it, now do i just pull or what?


You can sometime just pull it off but sometimes you will need to take a screwdriver and push the brake pad back on the caliber piston side. This will force the piston back and allow you to remove the caliber. After you remove it you will need to compress the caliber piston fully back in order to allow room the install the new pads and get them back on the rotor. Sometimes you can fully compress it while the caliber is still installed. On some vehicles like Honda you need a special tool in order to compress the caliber. Most auto parts stores will lend you the tool if you buy the pads from them. Be sure and loosen the master cylinder fill cap to allow the brake fluid to expand in the master cylinder. Clean everything off with spray brake cleaner before installing the new pads and clean the new pads throughly. Be sure and install pads in pairs. Do both front wheels or both back wheels not just one.
