I always use a c-clamp to push the piston in with. you won't be able to replace the pads unless you push the piston in.

How can replace brakes pad on jaguar 2006


If your car has antilock brakes, changing the pads is a bit different than what most people are used to. With a normal (non-ABS) car, you just unbolt the caliper, press apart the old pads to retract the piston, then replace the pads. This procedure forces much of the brake fluid out of the caliper and back into the master cylinder. The fluid is put back once you step on the brakes.

With an ABS car, you CAN'T force the fluid back; if you do you'll damage the ABS valve body (£800). Instead, you must open the caliper bleed screw and drain the excess fluid out of the caliper while you press the piston back into the bore. This is very important! If you force the dirty, water-contaminated fluid back through the relatively fragile valve body, you'll ruin it.

Also, did you know that you are supposed to replace all of the brake fluid in an ABS car once each year? That's different from older-style cars too.

Want to replace my own front brakes on 2003 outlander. cannot find detailed repair instructions anywhere. any ideas? thanks!


Hello, to replace the front pads first open the hood and remove the brake fluid cover (will make retracting the piston easier). Next losen the lug nuts till you can turn them by hand than jack up the vehicle and use a jack support stand. Once the vehicle is supported remove the lug nuts and wheel, remove the lower caliper screw and rotate the caliper upward. Remove the old pads, use one of the old pads and place it so it centers the caliper, using a large C-clamp position it with the solid end on the back side of the caliper and rotating handle contact the pad in the center or close as possible. Slowly rotate until the piston is fully retracted into the caliper, your brake fluid may run over but its ok. Install the new pads return the caliper to the normal position over the pads reinstall the lower caliper screw. Put the wheel back on tighten the lug nuts till the wheel is evely and firmly in its normal position. Remove the jack stand lower the vehicle, put the brake fluid cover back on and pump the brakes until they are firm and check the fluid, add some if needed. Tighten the lug nuts, check for leakes. After starting the vehicle pump the brakes a few times, now the fun part the test drive :) allow you self more than normal distance to stop. Tips, I always set the parking brake when working on the front brakes, some people use a 2x4 instead of a brake pad to retract the piston into the caliper, double check your work, i always do and take your time.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

Removal of brake calipers and pads on 1992 xj6 jaguar


Hi Jasa

Unless you are mechanically competent, I would not advise you carry out this procedure yourself, but leave it to the professionals.

If you are mechanically minded, and competent, the pads are relatively easy to replace, as follows.

Jack up the vehicle and put on stands, if you don´t have access to a hoist?

Remove wheels, and open the hood, put some kitchen roll around the brake fluid reservoir, to catch any excess brake fluid, when you push back the brake caliper pistons, if it´s been overfilled.
On the front brake caliper's, you are best to put in a little lever between pads and disc, and ease back the piston to fully retracted, unless you have a small G clamp which will do the same job when caliper is adrift.

Remove the 2 x 13mm caliper securing bolts and swing off the caliper, and support with a piece of wire, don´t just let it dangle on the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and sensor wire, check the caliper piston dust cover for splits, and clean caliper, housing, etc, and disc, with brake cleaner.

Fit the new brake pads to the caliper, and refit with 2 new securing bolts with blue lock tite, (normally supplied with the B/Pads.)

The rear caliper´s are pretty much the same as the front, although you can just undo the top bolt and swing the caliper back, but I usually remove both, for ease of cleaning, and inspection.

After rear caliper´s and pads and sensor wire, and new bolts are fitted, pump the brake pedal with the ignition on, and just run around, and check there are no leaks from the caliper pistons.
Check the fluid level, and lower with suction syringe if necessary.

By the way, 1. When did you last change your brake fluid ?
2. Adjust your front wheel bearings end float ?

You could do this now before you fit the wheels.?

Let me know if you wish the details for that too ?

Good luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please !

John.





Then refit wheels, drop down the car,
