i see alot of bad calipers on these in the rear! so when you get the wheels off and take a look at the pads one side should have alot more wear than the other and that will be the trouble side. when you have the caliper off and the pads off. try depressing the caliper piston and if it don't move open the bleed with presure still applied to the piston and if the piston goes in after you open the bleeder then you have a bad rubber brake hose and if it don't than your caliper is bad. also if the piston goes in from the begging then you may have a defective pad and it wore faster witch may cause the piston to get jammed because it's at it's full excursion.

if you have any more question please ask. good luck

SOURCE: rear brakes on 2006 f150 need changing

There should be two bolts that hold the caliper to the axle assembly. Remove these two bolts and slide the caliper off. At this point check the rotors for abnormal wear or grooves. Depending on how many miles you have on them I would replace them regardless. Before you insert the new pads into the caliper I like to use a C clamp and a piece of flatstock to force the pistons back to their original location. If you don't do this you will not be able to fit the caliper over the rotor. Before installing the caliper if you did buy the new rotors use some brake cleaner to remove any of the cosmoline oil that they are shipped with. Remember to chock your front wheels or use jackstands if you have enough. Good luck!

Keeps pulling to the right


check wheel bearing condition and adjustment on the right wheel. Check that the pads and caliper is free on the disc rotor. Check wheel alignment. Check tyre size and tyre pressure . Check for free movement of rear brakes as a dragging rear brake will affect the steering. Check the rear end alignment as an out of align rear axle will affect the front end steering.

My brakes keep locking up on 2001 ford taurus what causing it?


Could be sticking disc brake caliper(s), or sticking rear wheel cylinder(s). If one wheel locks up before the others, that would likely be the problem caliper or cylinder, since that brake wouldn't fully disengage, and would therefore be dragging (which would accelerate the wear on those brake pads or shoes, also).

No. It is the brake hose that is going to the caliper. These deteriorate from the inside and clog up. I recommend that you do all of them. Once one goes the others are not far behind. Also to check this release the pressure from the caliper threw the bleeder valve, if it releases then it's the hose for sure. If it doesn't release at all then the caliper needs replaced.

How to change 2001 crown victoria brake pads


Jack up car, remove the wheels, take out the two retaing bolts on the brake caliber, slide caliber up off brake disc, remove old brake pad, use a C-Clamp or big pair of Channel locks to compress the piston in to the brake caliber, Insert new brake pads onto caliber, slide brake caliber back over brake disc, reinstall the 2 retaining bolts. put tire back on. Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

How do you remove the front disc brakes?


To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
1. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
2. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
3.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
4. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
5.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
6.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
7.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
8. Install your new brake pads .
9. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....
