Try replacing the brake hose, sometime a bad hose will allow fluid to calaper but not let it bake out

You probably have a screw-in caliper piston design like my 99 A4 has. You need a tool that is made for screwing the calipers in - AutoZone has them as part of their tool loan program. Look at the face of the piston - if you see two indents or notches across from each other on the face, then you have screw-in pistons and need the kit to do them.

SOURCE: I put new rotors and front pads on and now i have

What happened to the brakes,? Did you have them before you started this project? I don't think the lines need to be replaced. I would only do that if they were leaking or damaged. Your proportioning valve going bad is rare. Is there any rust under there? Are the pistons on the calipers rusted? Did they readjust to the new pads? Did you move them to fit the new pads? How about the flexible hose? Is it in good shape? Try bleeding what you got before you start another project. Make sure they are moving, you might be needing to hone the pistons on the calipers. Hope this helps.

For the Honda CRV 2004, the driver's side automatic window does not go up or down but all other ones do. Please advise.


Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.

How difficult is it to cange the front rotors?


depending if you have the tools to do the job and pb blaster lock tite and white and dark grease for a beginer it has a rating of 7-8. if you work on cars and know what your doing, then its easy.. first thing is to remove the calapers then remove the calaper mounting bracket spray around the studs and bolts with pb blaster also around the hub and tap around the whole area around rotor dont hit the studs (with hammer) to break the rust buildup this should break rotor free then you may want to clean the rust off so that the rotors seat properly remove and clean new rotors with brake cleaner to get off the film off them (shipping rust retardent) and wipe. spray bolt holes to clear any rust left while removing old rotor and braket and dry. place a small ring of lock tite on bolts holding caliper brackets and let stand till harden or almost hard. replace new rotors install bracket/s and bolts (torq to ? 80foot lb) while replacing rotors replace brake pads, replacing just rotors will over heat new rotors in spots and warp rotors!!! make sure you pull the pins that retain the calipers to the bracket and add light coat of white grease to pins so calipers slides easy and evenly

Brakes are locked up.


If you have disk brakes. I would suggest you remove inspect one brake by removing the wheel. Then remove the brake pads using a piece of board and a 6" clamp push the calaper mechanism in and then apply pressure to the brake pedal. If the calapier wont move out .The brake calapier's may be defective.

How to change rear brake pads on audi a6 2006


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.
