    Could it have come blocked? I ask because we had 3 calibers for that side that came from the part store defective.

Bleed brakes


First, make sure there are no leaks in the system. Have a partner to pump brakes about 5 times holding down on the last pump locate the bleeder screw (10mm) on the left front brake caliber. Loosen the screw and fluid and air should be expelled. The brake pedal should go down as partner pushes to the floor have him,her hold until you tighten. Repeat on same screw until just fluid comes out. Repeat same process on left rear, then right rear, then right front. Needs to be in that order.

1994 Chevy Cavalier front right brake is locking up every time you step on brake . I already changed that caliber and it is still doing it


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN A CALIBER LOCKS UP: IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE CALIBER BEING BAD. THE CAUSE IS THE RUBBER BRAKE LINE GOING TO THE CALIBER IS BAD INSIDE OF THE RUBBER HOSE. ONCE YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL YOU PUSH FLUID INTO THE CALIBER ONCE YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL THE FLUID DOES NOT ALL RETURN TO THE MASTER CYL. THE HOSE IS OLD AND THE RUBBER IS BUSTED INSIDE OF THE HOSE AND THE FLUID IS STAYING INSIDE OF HOSE AND HOLDING PRESSURE ON THE CALIBER. I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME AND NEEDLESS TO SAY IT COST ME AROUND $500.00 TO HAVE IT FIXED AFTER I REPLACED CALIBER, ROTOR AND BRAKES.

2003 s type brake front pad - what tools are need to change the pads


the front pads are pretty straight forward,just a c clamp is sufficient to press the calibers,make sure the brake fluid reservoir cap is off when you do them..just unbolt the calibers from the rotors and they work the same as standard brakes,but the rear calibers at time will need a caliber tool to turn and press the piston simultaneously

Im bleeding the breaks on a 91 chevy c1500 the front calipers are locking down and not releaseing


First thing to check is the slide pins on the calibers. Make sure they are clean and free of any rust. If not, replace them. If they are not rusty then clean & lubricate them with a very small amount of grease. Your brake system on this vehicle is 20 years old. Have you ever changed the brake fluid? If you are like most people the answer is no. I recommend you flush the entire brake system and install fresh DOT3 fluid. Look closely at the flexible brake hoses that connect to the caliber. They may be collapsing and I recommend you replace them on a 20 year old vehicle. I would also recommend you replace the calibers on the front. With new calibers, brake lines, and fresh fluid you should have great brakes. If you still have the problem replace the master cylinder.

How to replace brake pads on 2006 oddesey


Raise and secure on stands after breaking loose the lug nuts and parking brake on for front pads.. Remove wheels and spread old pads back to push cylinders back in their bores on calibers to allow for thickness of new pads. Remove the 2 sliding claiber retaining bolts and rotate caliber out of mount and secure with wire, boungie cord, or rope to take weight of caliber brake hose. Remove old pads, install new, and reassemble in reverse order. Lugs on alloy wheel should be torgued to 95 foot lbs. Block front wheels, release parking brake,and do the back ones the same way. After completing, pump brake pedal slowly several times to seat new pads. If you move the MPV without pumping first, you will have no brakes to stop. If brake fluid level is high in master cylinder, you will need to take some out first to make room for returning fluid from caliber pistons being returned to their bores prior to any brake work. Rotors should be replaced or turned if scored or warped to have better clapping of pads to rotor surface.
