You should be able to get at it if you have the vehicle on jacks and pull the front wheels off, unlock the steering and turn the wheel one way or the other. that should give you access

My ford explorer 1997 is having trouble reversing on the left front side it seems it sticks on the wheel but it drives in drive perfect and just had the tranny done,so it is in the front wheel well so far


Ok, put the vehicle in park apply the parking break and jack up the front wheels using jack stands remove the front tires! On the inside of the caliper are two slidebolts and on the bottom slidebolt there should be a bolt remove it and flip the caliper up to the top your brake pads if not worn down to nothing are held in place by a caliper anchor assembly try to turn the rotor by hand counter clockwise and clockwise if it turns then go to the passenger side and repeat! If it turns the next question is do you have four wheel drive or two? If four wheel drive then turning the rotor listen for any noise like grinding if you don't hear it on either side then you have what's called a brake hose with a deviated inner lining causing fluid to reach the caliper but returning to the master cylinder slowly? Replace the calipers by swinging them back down onto the rotor making sure your brake pads are back in place the bottom slide bolt may need to be pushed in to clear the caliper! Replace your keeper bolt but do not over tighten the retaining bolt use a torque guage or try to recall how much force you exerted to loosen the bolt! Overtightening the bolt will break it and loss of braking can result! If you still cannot move in reverse then the clutches in the transmission may be worn out or the reverse gear may be worn and rebuilding the transmission is required! First see if the wheels turn while you have the tires on the vehicle usually it is a bearing or a brake pad has met the end of its lufe and needs to be replaced? I hope this helps you!

Replace rear brake discs and pads


Depending on vehicle. Find level ground and park there. Put chocks in front and behind wheels not being lifted. Loosen lugs, jack up vehicle, set jack stands, lower vehicle on jack stands, remove lugs and wheel. Open hood remove brake fluid cap. Remove two bolts holding caliper, pull caliper off rotor disc and bracket, remove pads, place a used pad in front of caliper piston, use a c clamp to push caliper piston in caliper, remove c clamp and old pad, hang caliper up, remove 2 bolts holding caliper bracket, remove bracket, remove rotor, install new rotor, install caliper bracket, install new pads, install caliper, repeat this on other side, put cap back on brake fluid tank, remove bleeder fittings and keep pressing brake pedal until an even flow of brake fluid sprays out. Install bleeder fitting. Make sure brake fluid doesnt get on paint and is contained and disposed of correctly, top off fluid install wheels and raise car up remove jack stands, lower car and break in new pads

1994 Holiday rambler motor home ford chassis front break locked up dont know how to remove caliper or to tell what size the parts are example 350 series or 450 series


The rubber "plugs "are the retaining pins,have to drive them out
with a punch and hammer. Also,have seen a lot if vehicles that
sit develop a restriction in the rubber hose that goes to the caliper,
The restriction is inside the hose so you can't see it. If this is the problem,after hitting the brakes ,open the bleeder on that wheel,
if fluid comes out under pressure and the wheel will turn after that,
it's the brake hose.

Mazda 6 2006 front brake pad clicking noise


Same problem, unscrew the 2 caliper bolts, they should have a rubber boot at top and MUST have a bushing type layer - like a rubber sleeve over the front end of bolt like a 2 inch rubber sleeve that is inserted into the caliper. Without the sleeve bushing and rubber boot at the top head of bolt the caliper will make a clicking sound going over bumps as the whole caliper will make the clicking sound hitting as the pads or rotors will have play. Had all bushings, struts, shocks wheels ball joints, sway bars, control arms checked but this simple bolt going into caliper will make calipers have enough play to knock when going over bumps. never would have thought as all pads, rotors etc tight as drum but old school tech found it and solved, 06 rx8 try its cheap and easy ix.

Stuck allen screws on 2000 silverado front brakes


Cut down a bolt so that the threaded bit sits inside the hole in the hex bolt place a washer between the head of the bolt and the top of the hex bolt.

Put a support behind the caliper so that any energy you use is not wasted

Use a bit of masking tape to hold it in position and give it a couple of sharp hard hits to the top of the threaded bolt

Try to crack it open

If not then you need to apply some to the area heat using a small blow torch, do not go wild as you can end up cooking the cylinder rubbers
