Brake caliper won't release


Shane prowett could need flexible brake line...sometimes when changing calipers the flexible lines get stretched or twisted while removing or installing calipers, fluid will push the piston but won't return back to free rotors. Hope I could help ya with your troubles! -Andy Maze-

I have a 2000 chevy silverado, the front left brakes keep getting stuck and i just change caliper for the second time so i know its not that.


It may be a bad rubber brake line that connects to that caliper, preventing brake fluid from exiting the caliper. Older rubber brake lines can collapse internally and prevent fluid passing through. If the rubber feels spongy, it needs replacing.

How do i reset check brakes


Pad removal procedure
Inspect the fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir.
If the brake fluid level is midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, no brake fluid needs to be removed from the reservoir before proceeding.
If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding.
Raise and support the vehicle.
Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
Remove the caliper from the mounting bracket and support the caliper. Notice: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic's wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from it's mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak. DO NOT disconnect the hydraulic brake flexible hose from the caliper.
Remove the brake pads from the brake caliper bracket.
Remove the brake pad retainers from the brake caliper bracket.

Installation Procedure

Important: Use denatured alcohol to clean the outside surface of caliper boot before installing new brake pads.

Use a C-clamp in order to compress the piston to the bottom of the caliper bore. Use the old brake pad, a metal plate or a wooden block across the face of the piston in order to protect the piston and the caliper boot. Important: Use a small flat-bladed tool and lift the inner edge caliper boot next to the piston to release any trapped air.
Ensure that the piston boot is below the level of the piston face.

Vibration in rear of vehicle when braks are applied


I believe that the rear discs are warped or the tires are out of round when braking. More likely, the discs. --- The following are the instructions for replacing the front and rear pads for the front/back rotors. 1999-01 Grand Cherokee Front
  1. Drain 2?3 of the brake fluid from the front reservoir. Use the bleeder screw at the front outlet port to drain the fluid. If equipped with anti-lock brakes, relieve the system pressure.

Need help changing brake pads and routers on 2003


Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
    1. Remove or disconnect the following:
    2. Front brake caliper guide pin bolts
    • Brake caliper by slowly sliding it up and off the adapter and brake rotor. Support the caliper out of the way with a strong piece of wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose or damage to the brake hose will result.
    1. If necessary, compress the caliper piston into the bore using a C-clamp. Insert a suitable piece of wood between the C-clamp and caliper piston to protect the piston.
    2. Outboard disc brake pad from the caliper by prying the brake pad retaining clip over the raised area on the caliper. Slide the brake pad down and off the caliper.
    • Inboard disc brake pad from the caliper by pulling the brake pad away from the caliper piston until the retaining clip on the pad is free from the caliper piston cavity

    I have a pass caliper sticking its on the front I got all new front breaks just installed still same thing what else could it be a dis valve where the line goes from one to the two front wheels??


    If your brake job was a professional job, return your vehicle for adjustment. They should have serviced the calipers as a part of the repair. If you told them to NOT service the calipers to save the couple bucks ... well now you will have to pay it.

    Please get this repaired before there is a serious problem.

    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,
