Brake Pads REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Remove approximately 2⁄3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. If necessary, clean the brake assembly with brake cleaner and allow to dry.
  5. Remove the caliper mounting bolt. Pivot the caliper upward on the fixed guide pin and secure it out of the way.Do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose.
  6. Tag the ant-rattle shims so they can be reinstalled in their original position.
  7. Remove the brake pads and retaining clips from the caliper anchor.
  8. Inspect the disc brake rotor and machine or replace, as necessary.
    To install:
  9. Install the retaining clips.
  10. Install the brake pads into the caliper anchor. The pad with the wear indicator is the inboard pad.
  11. Install the anti-rattle shims in their original position.
  12. Compress the caliper piston into its bore using pliers or another suitable tool.
  13. Pivot the caliper down over the brake pads and install the caliper mounting bolt. Tighten the bolt to 23&30 ft. lbs. (31&34 Nm).
  14. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Tighten the lug nuts to 65&87 ft. lbs. (80&118 Nm).
  15. Lower the vehicle. Pump the brake pedal several times to position the caliper piston.
  16. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir.

The caliper has 2 bolts holding it in.remove the bolts.slide off the caliper and replace the pads.you need to put a lubricant on the pads,and compress the pistons in all the way with a caliper piston tool,costs about 10 dollars.,or the new pads which are much thicker will not go on.also lube the bolts,known as slider pins or they can jam up.if there is brake pulsation you need to turn the rotors.to remove the rotors ,you need to remove the bracket that the caliper bolts to.there are 2 bolts holding on the bracket.then the rotor can come off to be turned.if the rotors are not thick enough after turning,,they need to be replaced

Firewall electrical schematics 89 ford probe


Your best bet is to just pay the ($15 I think it is) to Alldata.com and have all the service information you could every want for every part of the car. I did a google search and trying to find a specific wiring diagram usually takes quite a bit of time. If you have a lot of time to spend, just do a search and sift through the sites one by one until you find what you're looking for. Good luck, I've been through this one before. Used to have an 89 Probe, it was fun except for the speed limiter at 113mph, haha!

These definitely sound related. Need to inspect to see if it's something loose (like a wheel sensor) or the brake pads need replacing, etc. etc...

I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s


For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front pads..you need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear pads...you need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb
