This should be a disc brake setup in the rear, you will need a special tool to push the piston back into the caliper, they do not push in like the old style calipers, they actually have to be turned while being pushed in. You may be able to find the tool at the local parts store. Just tell them you need the tool for the rear brake calipers for your vehicle. Hope this helps

91' Mazda B2600i I have replaced pads, master cylinder and one front caliper that was bad. Have bleed brakes a lot went through 2 large bottles of brake fluid. Still no brakes. What do I do now?


It is possible you got a bad master cylinder--even new parts can be bad. Are you following correct bleeding procedure? Starting with right rear, then left rear, right front then left front? Using a helper to pump the pedal slowly then hold to the floor as you open bleed screw, watch for bubbles then close it before pedal is released? Top up fluid often and insure it never gets low enough to suck in air? I once got a "new" master that had no check valve installed.

My niece has a 1998 Mazda Protege with brake issues. When you step on the brake pedal if feels as the anti-lock brakes are kicking in. The brakes pedal pulses. Any ideas?


What you have sounds like warped rotors. They will cause a pulse or vibration in the brake pedal. This can be caused by:

1. Rotors worn too thin.
2. Riding the brakes and/or constant hard braking
3. Sticking calipers (usually also have a pull to left or right)
4. Worn or out of adjustment rear brakes causing excessive load on front brakes.

How do i change a mazda xedos 6 front brake pads?


Hi,
Brake Pads are an important part of your Mazda6's braking system. They are the replaceable friction pads that pinch the brake disc or drum when the brakes are applied. You should replace the brake pads before they wear beyond a quarter inch or risk damaging your Mazda6's brake discs.

Instructions
Remove the old Brake Pads
  1. Step 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. Step 2 Open the hood of your car. Locate the master cylinder and brake fluid container. 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. Step 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
  4. Step 4 Disconnect the parking brake cable from the brake caliper. The cable is usually held in place with a retaining clip. You can use pliers to remove the clip and disconnect the cable.
  5. Step 5 Remove the upper caliper bolt. Rotate the caliper downward until you can comfortably work on it. Remove the springs, pads and shims from the caliper.

    Install the new Brake Pads
  6. Step 1 Use the recommended tool to press the caliper piston back into the piston assembly.
  7. Step 2 Insert the shims, springs and new pads into the caliper. Reconnect the parking brake cable.
  8. Step 3 Rotate the caliper upward and back into place. Use the socket wrench to tighten the upper mounting bolt to 27 to 36 foot lb. (37 to 49 Nm) if you have a Mazda6 or to 16 to 23 foot lb. (21 to 31 Nm) if you have a Mazdaspeed6.
  9. Step 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly. Lower the car to the ground.
  10. Step 5 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
  11. Step 6 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.
Take care
