  • Bruce Hathcock May 11, 2010

    You can replace it by going to the dealer or you can remove it and take it to a parts store that sells doubled farreeld brake lines and replace it and bend it to fit, buy a 10 dollar tubeing bender to help bend it in place make sure the line does not rub anywhere and touches nothing. after replacing the line bleed it at the cylinder that you replaced the line from then bleed the oppiste side then bleed the fronut farthest from the master clyinder to the one closest to it. Be sure to keep the fluid level high and check it all the time untill done. afterwords clean with brake clean and apply the brakes a few times to make sure the brakes are not spongy and are not leaking.

SOURCE: ford fivehundredright rear brake caliper wont retract

Is this the ratcheting style caliper? If so, you really should be using the proper tool to turn these style calipers back into their bore, and both calipers should turn clockwise to retract them back in. Also, if the piston was too far out you may have a hard time getting it to go back in. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Fix chevy 2000 S10 parking brake.

Some times the rotors are hard to remove.(rust) Just soak it with wd40 and use a big hammer or prybar. Try smacking it around the studs, But don't hit them. If you smack the part of the rotor that the regular service brake rides on you will warp the rotor. Just keep trying, you'll get it. Also if you mess up the rotor they really aren't that expensive to replace. Plus your old one is likely wore out anyways.

Replacing caliper on 2002 dodge neon


The first thing is to make sure the caliper piston is all the way in, the caliper then slides over the brake pads and bolts on, make sure you have the correct caliper on the right side, the way to know this is when caliper is on the little bleeder screw should be on the top, if it is on the bottom then wrong caliper, try the other one,

After caliper is on you will then need to bleed the brake system,
This all depends on what happened, if the brake fluid did not all leak out and caliper was just bad then before removing brake hose off old caliper pinch rubber brake line with a pair of needle nose grips or there is a line crip tool that crips hose to avoid fluid from leaking out. this makes bleeding easier , other wise you will need to make sure fluid is full and start at the right rear wheel bleeding and move to left rear then right frt and last left front, you will need to keep an eye on the level of brake fluid and add as need to keep it from going empty,
you will need some one to pump and hold brake while you bleed them, pump pedal three times and hold down while you open bleeder screw, this is to be done to every wheel about four to five time to make sure all air is out . good day. note if pedal feels low bleed again wont hurt anything just a little more fluid lost.

Leaking brake fluid at rear passenger '92


Hi,
Most likely a brake caliper or line. Lines are fairly cheap, calipers cost about $75 a piece if you get them discount online. Novice mechanics can do either or both replacements. DOnt buy parts from a dealer, they are 40% higher than retail. A brake shop will run you in the range of $150 to replace the caliper and pads one one axle, about $300 on both rear (replace both is recommended). Mike

All of a sudden i have spongy brakes on my 92 f 250. changed master cyl and booster. and rubber brake hoses. still spongy and nothing is leaking.brakes went from being good to spongy in one...


Check the rear wheel cylinders? Was anything leaking at the master cylinder? Does it have ABS?
Check the front caliper slides are free. Check the front caliper pistons for leaks as well. This is all assuming you bled the brakes(all 4 wheels) properly after all that replacement! You're getting air from somewhere for sure or if it has ABS, the pump may have a problem.

My brakes will not get hard. The pedal goes to the floor. I just changed rear caliper and rotor on the drivers side.


DId you bleed the system after you changed the caliper? If the Master cylinder lost it's fluid while you were changing the caliper, then there is air in the system and you need to bleed the entire system. start with the REAR RIGHT, then the REAR LEFT and then the FRONT RIGHT and last the FRONT LEFT. make sure the master cylinder NEVER runs low on fluid and DO NOT re-use any fluid that you get out of the calipers.

Replaced master cylinder, and all brake calipers/pads. Brake pedal still goes to floor. Can't find air leak. What's the problem?


Its not air leak, you must bleed air from system. You have to bench bleed the master cylinder, then bleed each caliper starting from the right rear, then left rear, then front right, then front left. If you've already done this, then do it again, you must have air in your lines or they would work. The only other thing could be your rubber lines are bad and swelling(absorbing the hydraulic pressure) but they would have to both be completely mush.

Brake fluid is leaking out the front left tire!


This is most likely a busted or separated line that is connected to the brake housing(on the front tire assembly). inspect the line for a tight fit. replace the line and coupler if found to be defective.

In most severe cases, the caliber may be faulty.
