I don't know if you have done this yet, but you have to push the piston on the caliper back in before you can set the new pads.  The piston pushes further and further out as the old pads wear down.  All you need is a larger C-clamp and a piece of wood or even the old pad and you can push the piston back in.  Make sure that you take the top off of your brake fluid resevoir before you try to push it back in.  You will also find a bleeder on each caliper to bleed any air that is trapped before you start using the car.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Good luck!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

You have to use a c-clamp to press the caliber in so the new ones can fit over your rotor.

Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

I am trying to change the brakes on a 2000 dodge neon and i need directions.


I assume just the front brakes?
You will need brake pads, brake cleaner, a small packet of brake grease, a large 4 inch C clamp, and possibly new rotors if the old ones are bad (abnormal wear or it they are out of spec).
Start by jacking up the car one one side after placing the car in park and putting the parking brake on. Remove one of the front tires. Now spray the brakes/caliper with the brake cleaner so that you won't be breathing in brake dust particles and this will help clean up the parts (try not to get the brake cleaner on plastic parts). The brake caliper holds on the brake pads with two large bolts that will be parallel with the axle. Remove these bolts. You should now be able to pull the caliper and brake pads off of the disc/rotor. Make sure not to wreck the brake line that runs to the caliper. Take off the outer brake pad. Now take the C clamp and use it to slowly depress the inner brake pad and caliper. Make sure you have the old brake pad on so as not to wreck the new one. Once depressed, remove the brake pad and put the new brake pads on. Make sure to then grease the two caliper bolts and reassemble the brake assembly. If you replace the disc/rotor, spray it first with the brake cleaner to clean off anything left from manufacturing. Repeat on the other side.
Make sure to pump the brakes before driving. Let me know how this works out for you.

How easy it to change front brake pads on a toyota rav 4


not hard at all.remove tires.then remove 2 screws either 12mm or 14mm that hold the brake caliper in place.remove caliper but DO NOT disconnect the brake line from the caliper.get a C-CLAMP in order to get the caliper piston pushed back in.remove old brake pads and install new ones in the same order as the old ones were removed.you will want to check the rotors to make sure they are in good condition before you install the new pads,then put caliper back on and tighten screws to specs.do the same on the other side and always remember to PUMP YOUR BRAKE PEDAL A FEW TIMES IN ORDER FOR THE CALIPER PISTONS TO ENGAGE ON THE NEW PADS. hope this info helps.good luck and take care, manny

Need to change front brakes. Grind metal to metal sound. What tools needed and how to do it?


Hello, you will need a a standard socket set, C-clamp brake fluid, jack and jack stand. First open your hood take off the brake fluid cover. Loosen the lug nuts to where can be removed by hand. Raise the car high enough to get the wheel off and support it with the jack stand. Remove the lug nuts and wheel. Lower screw on the caliper, rotate the caliper upward. Remove the old pads, use one of the old pads to push the piston back in th caliper. Align the old pad to cover the piston evenly, using the C-clamp position it to where it contacts the old pad in the center and slowly turn to push the caliper in ward. Once the pad contacts the caliper give another half turn. Install the new pads, positioni the caliper back to the normal position over the new pads, reinstall the lower screw on the caliper. Put the wheel on install the lug nuts in a star pattern, only hand tighten. Remove the jack stand lower the car tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern. Check the brake fluid add some if needed, replace the brake fluid cap and pump the brakes until the the brakes are firm, start the car pump the brakes a couple extra times and check the fluid add if needed. The fun part the test drive, allow your self more than normal stop distance.

Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.

Do i need special tool to change the front break pad?


I'm going to assume you are talking about the front brakes since the brake pad warning light is wired to the front drivers side brake pad. Is this is the case you shouldn't put off changing the brake pads and rotors too long after the warning light comes on because you don't want to damage the caliper and cost yourself more money. Do them atleast within the next 500 miles if not earlier. The front brakes on the Jetta are standard single piston disc brakes. Buy decent new brake pads and you might as well buy new rotors instead of getting the old ones turned down (resurfaced, makes them thinner). You should also buy new brake fluid (good stuff) and flush the lines since VW recommends changing it every two years and it keeps the brake system clean and free of corrosion (saves money in the long term). Then you just jack up the vehicle, pop off the tire, loosen the caliper bolts, pull off the caliper making sure to still support it so the brake line doesn't get damaged (rig something up to hang it off the spring on the strut, i.e. bent metal clothes hanger), remove the one screw that holds on the rotor, pull off the old rotor, and remove old pads. There will be a pad sensor wire on the left front that you need to take off too. At this point you might need to push in the caliper piston in order to get the new pads seated correctly. There is no trick on the front calipers like the rear ones (the rear ones need you to turn the piston while pushing it in and is easiest to do with a special tool). You can use and old c-clamp or borrow a caliper tool fron a local auto parts store for the front. You should mount the new rotor first, then you might want to open the brake fluid reservoir (in the engine bay at the back, i.e. closest to cabin, in front of the driver), push the caliper piston back in, mount the new pads by usually sliding them on (use some brake quiet on the back if they don't have anything on them already), and put the caliper back on. The new pads might have the attachment for the sensor. You need to find out all the tightening values for all the bolts you remove and the best way for this is to buy the Bentley factory repair manual for your car (about $80). This will have the procedure I just outlined. It will also tell you how to change the brake fluid. The website forums.tdiclub.com will also have lots of answers for you and probably has pictures on how to do the work. I also recommend worldimpex.com or germanautoparts.com to buy whatever parts you need.

One thing I should mention, the rear brakes in these cars wear out long before the front brakes. If you have never had those serviced you should really look at them too. They may be down to metal on metal if the fronts are worn out.

Changing brake pads on 1996 honda accord


brake pads are one of those things that just dont last forever, using excess braking will wear them faster, not a hard or expensive fix to do yourself, just tell an auto parts store year make and model, they will give you the right pads, jack it up remove the wheels, take the old ones out and put the new ones in exactly how the old ones were, sometimes you need to turn rotors, and usually pads come with this gel to put on the pads. maybe 2 hours for the inexperience mechanic.
