Good day;
there should not be any pins that move in and out. on your caliper you have the brake caliper bolts that holds the two haves together on the rotor and then the anchor bolts. Recheck the bolts
hope this helps

Cheers

Removal & Installation


NOTE Using a brake pedal holding tool, depress the brake pedal past its first inch of travel and hold it in this position. This will isolate the master cylinder from the hydraulic brake system and will not allow brake fluid to drain out of the reservoir while the brake lines are open.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable Rear wheels Banjo bolt retaining the brake hose to the caliper. Be sure to plug the end of the brake hose or cover it with a plastic bag to prevent contamination from entering the hydraulic system. Caliper guide pin bolts Caliper assembly from the brake adapter by rotating the bottom of the caliper away from the rotor, then lift the caliper with the pads away from the adapter abutment Brake pads by pushing (outboard) or pulling (inboard) from the caliper fingers and piston

    Fig. Brake hose banjo fitting (1), caliper guide pin bolt (2), caliper adapter (3), caliper (4), copper seal washers (5) and banjo bolt (6)


To install:
  1. Completely compress the caliper piston
  2. Install or connect the following:
    NOTE The outboard pads are side oriented, make sure the spring clip is installed so it is positioned downwards when the caliper is installed.


    Inboard pad clip against the piston cavity and press the pad until the clip is seated making sure the pad backing plate is flush against the piston


    Outboard pad making sure the locating pins are positioned against the ramps. Slide the pad onto the caliper and ensure the locating pins are squarely seated into the holes on the caliper and the pad is flush against the caliper fingers.
  3. Make sure the abutment shims are in place on both slide abutments.
  4. Retract the caliper guide pins to clear the caliper adapter bosses.

    Brake caliper. Staring with the upper end, position the caliper and shoes over the rotor and align the outboard pad upper edge with the caliper slide abutment. Rotate the lower end of the caliper into position Caliper guide pin bolts and tighten to 200 inch lbs. (23 Nm) Banjo bolt with new washers on each side of the hose fitting and tighten to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) Wheels Negative battery cable
  5. Bleed the brake system and road test the vehicle

2000 monto carlo ss service tracking light comes on when i depress brakes and i notice rear brake rotors have deep groves and pad looks worn if i change both how will i no if calipers are ok


Your rear caliper is made to slide on it's bracket to allow your rear pads to move freely and evenly and to keep the brakes from dragging when not being used. If it won't slide on the bracket you can disassemble the two halfs of your caliper (when off the car) clean them up well (sandpaper, wire brush, brake parts cleaner, sos pads ect) and put antiseize or grease the slide pins. There are usually two slide pins and they have rubber gromets around them. If seized they may have caused the rear roters to wear badly.

Need information on how to reinstall rear brakes on 2000 beetle


Remove the old Brake Pads
  • 1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car make sure the car is in gear. Do not set the parking brake. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.
  • 2 Open the hood of your car and locate the master cylinder. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.
  • 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
  • 4 Remove the parking brake cable from the back of the caliper. Use the pliers to remove the cable clip (restraining clip).
  • 5 Use the socket wrench to remove the upper mounting bolt from the caliper. If the upper guide pin moves while you do this, use a back-up wrench to hold the upper guide pin.
  • 6 Rotate the caliper downward, pivoting it on the lower caliper bolt. Remove the inner and outer brake pads from the caliper.
  • Install the new Brake Pads
  • 1 Turn the caliper piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper housing. Insert the new brake pads into the caliper.
  • 2 Swing the caliper upward and into place. Apply a thin coat of thread locking compound to the bolt and use the socket wrench to tighten the bolt to 271 inch lb. (35 Nm).
  • 3 Reattach the parking brake cable to the caliper.
  • 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly. Lower the car to the ground.
  • 5 Pump the brake pedal a few times to seat the brake pads. Do this before trying to move your car.
  • 6 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
  • 7 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week after you install the new brake pads. Try not to do any hard stopping when you are seasoning the brakes.

    How do i replace the bushing on the slider door


    1. Remove sliding door trim panel , watershield, and access hole cover plates.
    2. Unlatch pizza sliding door.

    3. Remove latch actuator rod retainer from center door retainer hole.

    4. Disconnect pizza rear door latch actuator rod from pizza remote control assembly by opening pizza clip.

    5. Open pizza door sufficiently to gain access to pizza three bolts attaching pizza rear latch to pizza sliding door. Remove bolts.

    6. Remove pizza sliding door rear latch with pizza remote control actuator rod attached to pizza latch, from pizza sliding door.-------------
    First you need to get the right tools for the job and the right parts to fix the problem.There is a hinge pin in both the upper and lower hinges and four brass bushings and there is two different size bushings in each hinge and also two hinge pin retaining washers.as for the tools you need a spring compressor,jack,hammer,punch. First open the door all the way,put jack under door,I like to use a 2by4 board on top of the jack to help spread the wieght of the door out a little,next if the door has a wireing harness in the jamp loosen the rubber insulation form both the door and the body this gives a couble of inches of slack in the wireing.Next use the spring compressor to remove the spring,then use the punch and hammer to drive out the pins.it is very hard to get them to move an first but gets easyer as they start to move.I would recomend having a helper to hold the door upright as it will fall when the pin is removed from the hinge.Onece the pins are out move the door and jack away from the body to gain more axcess room the replace the bushings,two in the door side and two in the body side,then slide door and jack back and align hinge holes and install new pins. I allways grease the bushing and pins before installing.Drive the new pins all the way flush with the hinge and install the retainers.Reinstall the spring and reattach the wireing insulation. ------- Open the door so it is directly above the bench. Observe how all the fasteners, be they bolts or pins with bushings, are aligned. Generally, the bolts and pins point toward the center of the hinge from the top or bottom, The bolts and bushings are on the body-side bracket for the upper bracket and the door bracket for the lower one. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

    How can i change the rear brakes pads?


    1.Remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir

    2.Loosen the wheel nuts then raise the vehicle and remove wheel

    3.Push the piston back into the bore to provide room for the new brake pads.A C-clamp can be used to accomplish this As the piston is depressed to the bottom of the caliper bore the fluid in the master cylinder will rise.Make sure is doesnt overflow.If necessary drain off some of the fluid. 4.Before removing anything,spray the disc,and brake pads with brake system cleaner dont use compressed air 5.remove the caliper mounting bolt,the banjo fitting for the brake hose shouldnt be disconnected unless you are removing the caliper or hose replacement

    6.Swing the caliper up and secure the caliper up towards the spring with a piece of wire then remove the lower and upper anti-rattle springs.Remove the outer brake pad and shim then remove the inner brake pad ans shim(s)

    7.Remove and inspect the upper and lower pad retainer clips,the pad retainer clips should fit snugly in the caliper mounting bracket;if they dont,replace them.Apply thin film of high-temperature grease to the retainer

    8.Apply anti-squel compound to the back of pads install the new inner pad and shim(s) make sure the "ears" on the upper and lower ends of the pad are fully engaged with their respective grooves and the pad retainer clips

    9.Install the new outer pad and shim if new pad has no shim take the old shimoff the old pad and install it on the new outer pad.Install the upper and lower anti-rattle springs

    10.Clean off the caliper pin and coat it with high-temperature grease.Lubricate the lower caliper pin with grease too thenswing the caliper down over the disc and new pads (if the piston hits the inner pad depress the piston further into the caliper bore with your c-clamp

    11.Install the mounting bolt and tighten it to the torque specifications (44-63) 99 and earlier models (51-55)00 and later models
    12.Put the wheel back on and tighten lug nuts

    How to replace brake pads on '93 f150


    1. To avoid overflowing of the master cylinder when the caliper pistons are pressed into the caliper cylinder bores, siphon or dip some brake fluid out of the larger reservoir.
    2. Jack up the front of the truck, support it on jackstands, and remove the wheels.
    3. Place an 8 in. (203mm) C-clamp on the caliper and tighten the clamp to bottom the caliper piston in the cylinder bore. Bear the clamp on the outer pad. NEVER PRESS DIRECTLY ON THE PISTON! Remove the C-clamp.
    4. Clean the excess dirt from around the caliper pin tabs.
    5. Drive the upper caliper pin inward until the tabs on the pin touch the spindle.
    6. Insert a small prybar into the slot provided behind the pin tabs on the inboard side of the pin.
    7. Using needlenose pliers, compress the outboard end of the pin while, at the same time, prying with the prybar until the tabs slip into the groove in the spindle.
    8. Place the end of a 7⁄16 in. (11mm) punch against the end of the caliper pin and drive the pin out of the caliper slide groove.
    9. Repeat this procedure for the lower pin.
    10. Lift the caliper off of the rotor.
    11. Remove the brake pads and anti-rattle spring. NOTE: Do not allow the caliper to hand by the brake hose. To install:
    12. Thoroughly clean the areas of the caliper and spindle assembly which contact each other during the sliding action of the caliper.
    13. Place a new anti-rattle clip on the lower end of the inboard shoe. Make sure that the tabs on the clip are positioned correctly and the loop-type spring is away from the rotor.
    14. Place the lower end of the inner brake pad in the spindle assembly pad abutment, against the anti-rattle clip, and slide the upper end of the pad into position. Be sure that the clip is still in position.
    15. Check and make sure that the caliper piston is fully bottomed in the cylinder bore. Use a large C-clamp, bearing on a piece of wood, to bottom the piston, if necessary.
    16. Position the outer brake pad on the caliper, and press the pad tabs into place with your fingers. If the pad cannot be pressed into place by hand, use a C-clamp. Be careful not to damage the lining with the clamp. Bend the tabs to prevent rattling.
    17. Position the caliper on the spindle assembly. Lightly lubricate the caliper sliding grooves with caliper pin grease.
    18. Position the a new upper pin with the retention tabs next to the spindle groove. NOTE: Don't use the bolt and nut with the new pin.
    19. Carefully drive the pin, at the outboard end, inward until the tabs contact the spindle face.
    20. Repeat the procedure for the lower pin. WARNING
      Don't drive the pins in too far, or it will be necessary to drive them back out until the tabs snap into place. The tabs on each end of the pin MUST be free to catch on the spindle sides!
    21. Install the wheels.
