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.

Where r the bleeders on rear brakes for 1994 pontiac bonneville


If they are disc brakes, the bleeder valve will be on the brake caliper. If they are drum brakes, look on the back side of the brake backing plate. The bleed valve will be on the brake wheel cylinder. The valves probably have a little protective rubber boot on them.

My 2000 chevy s10 i cant find the bleeder screw for brakes


The bleeder will be on the brake caliper itself. One bleeder on each caliper on the front. IF you have rear disc brakes it should be on the caliper on the rears too. Somewhere near the side or the top of the calipers.

How do you retracked the rear disc brake piston into the caliper of my 2003 Pontiac Bonneville. all wheel disc brakes.


with the caliper off the disk assembly -- you can use a big C-clamp to compress the piston in. also if a C-clamp is not around, you can simply loosen the 'zerk' fitting ( the bleeder ) and push the piston hard by hand. ( note: oil will shoot out of bleeder, so put a rag over it to protect your eyes and brake parts ) -- also make sure when you put it all back together that you bleed the brake lines of all air.

BLEEDER VAULVE LEAKING . I REPLACED THE CALIPER ONTHE PASS SIDE BECAUSE PISTON BUSTED IN HALF PLUS REPLACED PADS, HOWEVER WHEN ATTACHING THE BRAKE LINE/BLEEDER IT LEAKS. NOT SURE IF I AM ATTACHING IT...


If the bleeder screw is leaking, pull it out an carefully inpsect for damage or scoring...

If bleeder screw, replace it, if caliper is damaged, replace that.

the bleeder screw should have nothing to do with the brake line attachment.

Unable to compress rear brake caliper is this caliper shot?


There is a tool that you can buy or rent at the parts house that you can connect to a hand tool EG: 3/8 rachet to use with a tool to compress the caliper while you turn the rachet. You will see some raised teeth on the calliper piston for the tool to bite on. Since the rear brake is used to lock the parking brake it has to have a self adjust to compensate for the brake pad wear. EG: Old school drum brakes adjust when you back up depressing the brakes and letting off while the vehicle is rolling allows for the adjuster to reset the brake shoe clearance.
