If I remember correctly you will need a pair of side cutters, a half inch wrench and a pair of water pump pliers and a large "C" clamp.

When putting on brakes, car makes a boom boom noise and shakes. The wheels on the front move if you shake them back and fourth. Is that my ball joints?


It's worse than ball joints, it's CV joints. Constant Velocity joints. They're the flex joints that connect wheels to driveshaft to transmission. Since your car is front wheel drive... take it to a shop and have them do the work... it requires specialty tools and is not an easy fix.

your brakes may have air in the lines and only need to be bled. if your sure that there are no leaks,you only need to bleed the air out of your brake lines.1st try pumping your brakes up with the brake pedal,you may have to pump the pedal 10 to 15 times in order to get your brakes up.if they come up after doing this,you will need to have the brakes bled. thank you for choosing fixya.com

How do I change front brakes on this vehicle?


Your model is not to involved with special needs or tools...The brake pads are exposed when you remove the front caliper...this is accomplished by removing the 2 mounting bolts completely, then lift the caliper off of the rotor...be sure to hang the caliper on a strut spring or something to keep it from falling or damaging the brake line...you can pull off the rotors on this model after removing the caliper...You need to push the pistons all the way in to use the new pads...channel locks can do this. I recommend that you include replacing the rotors as this will assure the smooth new operation of pads and rotors...the rotors are inexpensive at about $20-$25...use all lubricants in re-assembling the calipers, and grease your wheel studs for weather-proofing and future service. SPECIAL NOTE: After completion pump the brakes before driving...do not be surprised that the pedal initially goes to the floor...keep pumping to restore...check fluid in master cyclinder to be sure still full...congratulations on replacing your own brake parts and saving $$$$

How to replace brake pads on 1988 plymouth voyager



The best way is to buy a caliper kit.. it will have the pads and new calipers. Just replacing the pads is kind of a band-aid fix.. The parts for the last brake job I did were $200. (95 Toyota PU) .. this included the rotor too... there will be a core charge for the calipers.. . sometimes you find more things wrong once you start inspecting everything.. If you are cheap, go to the wreckiing yard.. the 1989-90 Voyagers will work.. you have a "first generation" Voyager..

You will have to get the caliper off to replace the pads, odds are that if you went down to the metal.. the rotors are dust..

Plus, over time the rotors tend to warp.. this will cause premature pad wear even if you just replace the pads.. Brakes aren't something I scrimp on.. Jim

Grinding, rattling noice coming from the right front. Brake pads are good.


Probably the splash shield hitting the rotor. First visually inspect the rotors for scratches and grooves front and back while the entire vehicle has been lifted off the ground and front tires removed. I fyou can't find any thing put vehicle in gear with parking brakes applied(remember your noise if comming from front of car)and listed for the grinding. Seperate the splash shield from rotor with a dull flat screw driver.

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while plymouth voyager 1998


Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

I have a 1989 Reliant K and my emergency break wont release. You can pull on the lever and manually pull up the pedal put it cranks back down by itself when you let go.


Surprized you still have a K car running!
To fix this you'd have to get under the car and cut the cable going to the rear brakes.
I know, you don't want to do that.
It's the easiest solution.
I automatic doesn"t need a parking brake.

Brakes bad even after replacing pads/rotors


You need to replace the master cylinder. If all else is good and the petal goes to the floor, that's really about all it could be.
