Make sure you replace both your rotors & pads. Don't just replace one side.

I am trying to replace the disk brakes on a 2002 grand Cherokee need to replace pads and rotors, but can't get the calipers off. Is their a special tool to get the pins out?

You don't really have to remove the caliper pins to replace the pads or rotors. If you look on the inside of the caliper,you will see two large bolts, I think they take an 18mm socket or wrench. Remove them,then using a large screwdriver, pry the pads apart. The caliper should now drop down. Be careful not to hang them from the brake lines, set them on something. You should now be able to remove the pads and rotors.

Are there wear sensors on the 2005 Ford Escape front brakes? I don't hear any noise from the front brakes, but the dealer wants to change the pads; and I want to wait until I really need them. They...

Depends on the pads used, some pads have them and some don't. They are just little clips of metal that touch the rotor when the pads wear down to a certain point. It creates a squeeling noise, hence the nickname "squeelers" or "squeekers". Dealers are famous for replacing parts that don't really need it. I would get a second opinion. It only takes a few minutes to remove the front wheels and do a visual inspection. You could ask the technician if your brake pads are equipped with the squeelers. I hope this helps.

2001 GMC Yukon 4wd -- inside of front brake rotors worn unevenly, what causes this? Caliper slide pins seem to be OK, caliper slides against bracket OK. -David

This is not uncommon. It comes from the design of the disc brake systems which contain the one piston. The ideal condition would be that the clamping pressures are equal for both the inside/inboard pad and the outboard pad, but that just does not happen. It's always good to make sure that the slide pins are lubed with a good brake caliper grease and that you use a good quality original equipment brake pad set. I recomend using the AC Delco brand. This will also prevent any squeeking that you will get from "cheap" pads. Sounds like everything is working good. Let me know if you need anything else.

How to replace front discs and pads

Front brakes are very simple to do:
  • Pull off the front tires.
  • Remove the brake pads by removing the slide pin bolts where the piston assembly attaches to the caliper mounting bracket. The slide pin bolts are usually a 12 or 14mm bolt. Once the piston assembly is free slide the old brake pads out.
  • Compress the piston back into the caliper by using a large pair of channel lock pliers or a c-clamp. If you don't do this, you won't be able to get the new pads on.
  • Before you put the new pads on, replace the rotor.
  • Remove the two bolts for the caliper mounting bracket. They are in the back and are bigger than the slide pin bolts. Usually a 17 or 19mm bolt.
  • Pull off the caliper mounting bracket.
  • At this point the old rotor should slide right off. If it doesn't slide right off, look for a screw in the center of the rotor, some cars will have a screw there to hold the rotor on. If there's no screw and it still won't come off, try tapping it with a hammer. If you're replacing the rotor, don't be shy.
  • Put the new rotor on. Make sure to clean off any grease with brake cleaner that may be on the braking surface from packaging.
  • Put the caliper mounting bracket back on.
  • Put the new brake pads on. Make sure to use some anti-squeal grease on the back of the pads.
  • Put the caliper assembly back on with the slide pins. Grease up the slide pins as well.
  • Put the wheels back on.
  • Make sure to pump your brakes 10 - 15 times before you drive off. Because you compressed the piston back into the caliper, the piston will not be contacting the brake pads unless you pump the brakes.

Good Luck!

How do i get the brakes pads off a 1992 eagle talon? Usually you loosen the 2 bolts and pull it right off and replace the pads but there's only 1 bolt and i cannot get it off!

chrysler, dodge, jeep, eagle, all are kind of mutts when it comes to parts, including brakes. don't take offense; some of the best dogs out there are mutts. the point being your brakes could be a wide range of designs. look for retainer clips or pins or larger pins or "slider bars" that can be removed to access the pads. often such setups allow prying back the caliper pistons using a screwdriver while leveraging it against the pads or rotor, and removing the pads without even removing the caliper.

2005 yukon denali rear brake pad replacement> how to remove calipers? what bolts to remove? what size are they?

These use a seperate drum brake inside the rotor. The caliper will come off with the removal of 2 bolts. The caliper comes up, push the piston in using a "C" clamp or large channel lock pliers. Simply slide out the pads and replace as necessary. Use a silicone grease on the slide pins and on the back of the pads to prevent squeeks. Professionally I would use AC Delco pads. Anything else could create more noises and other issues! Let me know if you need diagrams or anything else.

I have a red circle with 3 little lines in each side of the circle in dashboard light for a couple weeks and i´m worry about that because i don´t know what this mean, can somebody help me please

It is a disc brake pad indicator. It means its time to get your brakes inspected and the pads likely replaced. Normally, your front pads will wear quicker than the rear pads.

Get it checked on at your earliest opportunity. Brake jobs are cheap until you wait too long and start wearing into your brake rotors.

To change these pads is simple. You first should wash down the area with brake clean so you don't inhale the dust. Then they are to pins that go through the top of the pads and the caliper. (This Caliper has pistons on bothsides) You them remove the metal clips that hold those two pins. with a needle nose pliers. after removing the clips you will be able to remove the two pins and remove pads. Using the old pads in place you can then push back the piston to make room for the new pads.
