The front caliper takes a 9mm hex drive socket, and you can order it from Snap-on tools online. Nobody else had this socket and its the only one that is made for that caliper.

For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.

Important note: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!!
Check brake fluid level and top up as neccessary!

I need to change my front brake disc on the passenger side. What tools and parts are going to needed?


The 1st thing you must know is you had best replace both sides for even braking and wear. New rotors will likley be needed. Brake pads and Calipers for both sides,A small tube of grease, might com with pads
The grease is used where pads contact the Backing plate. Use it sparingly.1 Small can of brake fluid to
top off master cylinder after you have bled the air out
of system. You will realize what tools are needed as
you proceed, 2 large C-Clamps will likley be needed.
Wrenches of various sizes.Side cutters to remove cotter keys & replace them. 1 or 2 Good floor jacks.
Use jack stands for saftey.It will cost a little more
this way but it will last a lot longer done right.

Passat 2003 tdi, brake pad change..


Proper size wrenches and a large C-clamp to push piston back into the caliper is only tools for the front, but back disk brakes require special tool to TURN the piston as it is pushed back into caliper to reset emergency brake. This tool can often be borrowed from Auto parts store or purchased from Harbor Freight http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=40732 for about $20. Don't try to service rear disks without the tool, Calipers can be broken if not retracted properly!

2006 dodge ram 2500 4x4 diesel replace brake pads front and back


Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.
