Was it stuck before you replaced the pads ?
Does it release if you loosen the bleeder screw on the caliber ?

SOURCE: no fluid come out when bleeding brakes drivers side front

Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault

Have someone push & release pedal while at wheel with problem. See if it takes a while or slow to release. If yes, have wrench ready on bleeder screw, and try again, if it sticks/holds, crack bleeder screw, if it releases, I'd replace hose.

SOURCE: driver side brake not bleeding properly after

first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run dry.next prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the modulator.place the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is submerged.open the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.

You will really need to completely bleed the system. You may want to use a powerbleeder to get the system clear of air. It takes alot of pumping of the brakes to get all the air out. You will not get good brake pressure untill you clear out the brake system of air.

I replaced front pads on my 2000 crown vic. The caliper is stuck on the passenger side .i bleed the brakes an it was fine befor i changed the pads is the caliper shot ???


If the brake fluid has NOT been changed on any vehicle
every 2 years since it was new, you can be assured that after
10 years ,the inside of the calipers are all rust

Replace the calipers & the rubber flex hoses, as they collapse
inside also.

You MUST remove ALL Rust from any surface the pads or calipers slide on & use anti-seize on those surfaces

You must remove all rust from wheel hub face,both side of the rotor & mounting face of the wheels & lube them also

You have to remove & clean the caliper slide pins/bolts & use
the synthetic caliper lube inside there

Need a helper to bleed the brakes & have to start at the back
& do all 4 corners

I have a F150 p/u 2000 for 10yrs. Each year I change the brake pads. But the rear pads still looks like new. The front pads are worn down. What can be causing the problem?


normally, you replace the rear brake pads every other change in the front brake pads. for your case, it seems that the front brakes are the only ones working.

bleed your brakes to check if rear brakes are still working. after bleeding, check your brake master if it puts pressure equally to the 4 brakes.

Can I bleed my 94 Crown Vic brakes with out special equipment? I have bled several older brake systems on my vehicles without ABS systems in the past. Thanks Jim


I have done the brakes many times on my own 1994 Vic and never had a problem. Just start at the farthest brake in back and work your way forward. The drivers side front is the shortest line. If you do have any problems, I use a Vacuum handheld bleeder pump.

They make it nice because the 4 ounce cup that comes with it holds enough discharged fluid that you get very little spill, if any at all. You can gravity bleed them too.

fluid on the pad can cause the pad to stick and then slip--this can cause noise when the pad breaks loose from the disk. fix the leak and clean everything with brake cleaner (or put in new pads)

Changed front brake pads. brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


Something doesn't sound right, you shouldn't have to remove the brake line to install pads. Did you have to do this on both sides? Do the new pads and the old pads look the same? Did you get the caliper on crooked? Just recheck your work first before replacing more parts. When you install the caliper, You have to hook the pad on one side first before you slide it over the rotor.

crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.
