  1. Step 1 Remove ½ of the brake fluid from the master cylinder with the syringe and replace the cover. Discard the fluid.
  2. Step 2
  3. Remove the front hubcaps and loosen the wheel nuts using the lug wrench, but do not remove the nuts.
  4. Step 3 Lift the front end of the LeSabre with the floor jack and secure safely onto the jack stands.
  5. Step 4 Remove the wheel nuts and wheels. Screw one wheel nut back onto a wheel stud hand tight to retain the rotor away from the caliper assembly.
  6. Step 5 Place a large C-clamp over the left inboard caliper housing and the outboard pad, and tighten to compress the caliper piston.
  7. Step 6 Remove the two caliper guide bolts using a box end wrench. Remove the caliper and secure it to the vehicle chassis with mechanic's wire or a metal hook.
  8. Step 7 Remove the outboard pad from the caliper on the LeSabre first. Pry it off the outboard caliper housing using the screwdriver.
  9. Step 8 Remove the inboard pad by lifting the retaining clips out of the caliper bore.
  10. Step 9 Clean the surface of the caliper bridge that contacts the backing plate of the pads using a wire brush, and apply a thin coat of brake lubricant to the contact points. Be careful not to let the lubricant get onto the rotor.
  11. Step 10 Install the new inboard brake pad and shim into the caliper piston bore by pressing the retaining clips into the bore until it locks into place.
  12. Step 11 Install the outboard pad onto the caliper housing, making sure to align the retaining clips into the holes in the caliper. Use the screwdriver to convince the clips onto the caliper if necessary.
  13. Step 12 Replace the caliper over the rotor.
  14. Step 13 Clean off the surface of the guide bolts and apply a light coat of lubricant to the smooth surface of them. Align them properly through the rubber boots and bolt the caliper to the knuckle. Tighten the guide bolts using the wrench. Remove the wheel nut from the wheel stud securing the rotor.
  15. Step 14 Replace the wheel and wheel nuts. Tighten the wheel nuts snugly, and re-tighten them (with a torque wrench is recommended set at 100 foot pounds) once the LeSabre is back on the ground.
  16. Step 15 Repeat steps 5 through 14 for the right side.
  17. Step 16 Pump the brake pedal when you're through to seat the new pads against the rotors, then check and add new brake fluid to the master cylinder.

My corolla runX 1.6 manual finishes front left brakes pads quickly. Than right side what can be the cause??


probably find that the calliper body is not moving freely on the mounting pins and leaving one pad in contact with the disc
quality of the disc is important
when working on disc brakes , replace both rotors and use the same pads for both sides
check the wheel bearings for correct adjustment

How do you replace front pads


remove the callipers from off the disc rotors. remove the loose pad and use a piston mover to push the inner pad and piston fully back into the calliper .replace the pads and slip calliper back over the disc and re-tension mount bolts
make all spring and plates are replaced in the correct positions
when doing this I open the bleed nipple for the calliper I am working on as I push the piston back. It makes it easier and doesn't overfill the reservoir. When the piston is full back tighten the bleed screw
when the job is done pump the brake pedal several times to adjust the clearance of the pads back onto the disc.

Front wheel bearings


first check the pads have not worn down to metal if they have the disc will have to be replaced , if the disc is in good condition and the pistons are free press them back into the cylinders and then the pads can removed .check the master cylinder does not over flow as the pistons are pushed back. Brake fluid is a paint remover. the wheel bearings don't have to be touched to replace pads. After new pads are fitted the brakes will have pumped to bring the pads out to the disc.

1989 toyota pickup front disk brake pads replaced, now the front calipers wont clear the new disk brake pads! Any solutions, please?


remove caliper, push disc all way home, put wheel nut on to hold home, retry fitting them the disc may be slightly scued. If no go try diffrent brand of pad I had same prob with a diffrent car last week & diffrent brand pad was 2mm thiner. If can't exchange pads get piece of emery paper on flat surface & sand away top part of pad material in round motions both ways till they fit. :-)

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

How do you install a DISC BRAKE HARDWARE KIT in 1980 toyota pickup ''front disc brake''


remove all connection bolts , clips. I then slowly pry the brakes as far from the rotor as posible ( depressing the brake cylinder) with tire tool or large screw driver, so the new thicker pads will go in with ease. Replace new pads acording to toyota and replace bolts/ clips. this method requires no bleeding of brakes.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
