Question about 2005 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have never changed brake pads before in any car! Do you think I will be able to change the front brake pads on my 2003 Kia Rio? What will I need and how should I go about it? I would love a step by step "guide for dummys" kind of explanation because I am not really mechanical! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Piece of cake....you can do it! I would register at autozone.com. It's free and you can access a full online repair manual. Anytime I purchase a different car I also purchase a Haynes Repair Manual. These are also available at auto parts stores. It will give step by step instructions for your particular make and model of car. Hope this helps and good luck.

you need to depress the piston in caliper,try a vice clamp to get that caliper pressed back for clearance!! some calipers screw in if yours has crosshairs on piston you'll need to screw counter clockwise hope this helps!!!!

Changing front brake pads on a kia rio 2004


ok first you have to take the wheel off
then you will see the caliper there'
there are to bolts behind that take them out
then take the caliper off dont undo nothing else
take the old pads out
use a caliper to push the cylinder back (its what pushes the brake in)
put the new brakes in the same way they came off
do the bolts up
then pump the brakes
is the cylinder is to hard to push back you will have to realse the pressure buy undoing the bleeder then you will have to bleed them again (but in this case they should move easy
