2006 malibu maxx brakes problem...

I replaced the rear brakes on my malibu maxx SS. I took the bleeder valve all the way off the pasenger side because I could not get the piston to release. I tried to bleed the brakes after installation (I loosened only the rear passenger side) The brake peddle still goes to the floor. Do I have to bleed all of the lines even though I only removed the one?

Yes air gets into the hole system. You need to bleed all 4 wheels.

You;ll have to bleed your Brake System, The Proper way to Bleed your Brakes is to 1st of all get a Buddy or someone to Sit in Car and Push your Brake Pedal down and Hold it there until you Have Opened the Bleeder Valve on your Brake Calipers.Start at the Rear Pasenger which is farthest from your Master Cylinder,Get the Right Size Bleeder Wrench ,If you don't Have 1 You Local Parts Supplier Should. Back to the Bleeding Process Have your Help Just PUSH the BRAKE PEDAL down (DON"T HAVE THEM PUMP IT IT WILL JUST CAUSE IT TO GET AIR INTO YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM,AND LEAVE THE ENGINE OFF DURING BLEEDING ! After You Get Clear Fluid from each Bleeder Valve Tighten it Up and Move to Next.(NOTE KEEP CHECKING your MASTER CYLINDER to keep it Full at All Times while Bleeding or you'll get Air in the System And KEEP The Master Cylinder Cap on Also. Next one to Bleed is Drivers Side Rea, Then Passenger Side Front and Last is Drivers Side .This Should Bring your Brake Pedal Up to give you BrakesIf ALL the rest of your systems Components are correctly working you should be Ready to Test.Hope This Has Helped You.

2006 malibu maxx - the rear brake caliper will not depress.


If you are replacing the rear pads and are trying to retract the caliper pistons here is what you need to do.
Use a piston installation tool in order to twist the brake caliper piston into the brake caliper bore.
If you do not have the tool you can retract the piston by using a needle nose plier.
Exert downward force and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.
Before installing be sure the two "U" shaped slots are at 6:00 and 12:00 Oclock.

2006 Malibu Maxx - rotors were out of round.


In order to retract the pistons on the rear calipers you need to use a special tool that will rotate the piston in a clockwise direction.It may be possible to try to use a strong needle nose plier.Apply force against the U shaped slots on the piston and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.Before you reinstall the caliper make sure that the recessed slots are at 12 and 6 "o"clock..the slots align with one or two bumps on the inside pad.
If you are having problems with your calipers rebuilt one are a good option.If only the caliper slide pins are sticking they can be cleaned and lubricated.Pin lubricant sometimes comes with a set of brake pads.Other than that lube may be purchased separately at an automotive supply store.
