Question about 2007 Hyundai Entourage Limited Minivan
Want to change the brake pad my self and i have the the brake pads i can get the old ones out but can't get the new ones on
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.
