Question about 1988 Ford Bronco II

1 Answer

There appears to be a shim or pin surrounding the connecting bolts for the brake pad assembly and I can't get it off and I need to know if it is a pin to push out, or a bolt that maybe has sheared off?

It's a pin, use a punch or a screw driver and hammer to knock it out. It's two pieces of metal held together by a rubber center. There are two of them on each caliper. Ask an auto parts store to show you a caliper pin.

How to replace rear pads on a 2008 Chrysler Pacifica


Pacifica 2006-2008
Brake Calipers

Print I hope this helps,Good luck


Removal & Installation


NOTE Using a brake pedal holding tool, depress the brake pedal past its first inch of travel and hold it in this position. This will isolate the master cylinder from the hydraulic brake system and will not allow brake fluid to drain out of the reservoir while the brake lines are open.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable Rear wheels Banjo bolt retaining the brake hose to the caliper. Be sure to plug the end of the brake hose or cover it with a plastic bag to prevent contamination from entering the hydraulic system. Caliper guide pin bolts Caliper assembly from the brake adapter by rotating the bottom of the caliper away from the rotor, then lift the caliper with the pads away from the adapter abutment Brake pads by pushing (outboard) or pulling (inboard) from the caliper fingers and piston

    Fig. Brake hose banjo fitting (1), caliper guide pin bolt (2), caliper adapter (3), caliper (4), copper seal washers (5) and banjo bolt (6)


To install:
  1. Completely compress the caliper piston
  2. Install or connect the following:
    NOTE The outboard pads are side oriented, make sure the spring clip is installed so it is positioned downwards when the caliper is installed.


    Inboard pad clip against the piston cavity and press the pad until the clip is seated making sure the pad backing plate is flush against the piston


    Outboard pad making sure the locating pins are positioned against the ramps. Slide the pad onto the caliper and ensure the locating pins are squarely seated into the holes on the caliper and the pad is flush against the caliper fingers.
  3. Make sure the abutment shims are in place on both slide abutments.
  4. Retract the caliper guide pins to clear the caliper adapter bosses.

    Brake caliper. Staring with the upper end, position the caliper and shoes over the rotor and align the outboard pad upper edge with the caliper slide abutment. Rotate the lower end of the caliper into position Caliper guide pin bolts and tighten to 200 inch lbs. (23 Nm) Banjo bolt with new washers on each side of the hose fitting and tighten to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) Wheels Negative battery cable
  5. Bleed the brake system and road test the vehicle

How do i change brake pads on a 2009 hyundai elantra


That was a close description but not exact. There are no "pins" that need to be removed. You can re lube the sliding pins the caliper bolts go into but they do not have to be removed to replace pads. The brake hose does not need to be detached and neither the front or rears on the '09 need to be "turned" in; they just push in. Some model years do turn to retract but not the '09.

The pads both front and rear are notoriously tight but work OK. I do lube them well. I do not use the OEM shims. Most replacement pads have shims attached.

I need to change my front brake pads on toyota aygo but cant find a work shop maneul


Dear Sir,

If you have the knowledge of automobile engineering you can do this easily.
Changing the brake pads is an easy job. The following set of
instructions look intimidating, but are actually very straightforward.
Most dealers will charge US$100 to $200 to do this job, but the
parts cost about US$25 and can be replaced in under an hour.
Jack up front wheel. Remove wheel. Remove small bolt holding the
flexible brake line bracket on the strut tower. Looking at the caliper
assembly, there are two long sliding pins that the caliper slides back
and forth on. Each has a hex head on the back (away from you) side.
There is a place on the pin that you can fit a wrench and hold it while
you loosen the hex head bolt. Remove the bottom hex head bolt ONLY.
The caliper will now flip up off the rotor, rotating on the upper pin. Use
a piece of string to tie it in the raised position while you work. Make a
note of how the pads are installed. Look at the wear indicator on the
inside pad in particular. Now carefully remove the pads, the anti-squeal
shims and pad support plates (the little clip-like things at the top and
bottom on each pad), noting the way they are installed and their
sequence. The pad support plates may be stuck to the calipers with
grime and crud. Gently pry them out. Clean any crud from the caliper in
the area where the pad support plates go. Clean up the pad support
plates. Reinstall the pad support plates in the same positions that they
were removed from.

You are not supposed to reuse the anti-squeal shims (the two thin plateson the side of the pads) but I always do if they aren't damaged and I never have a squealing problem. If your pads come with new ones, use'em. Otherwise, use the old or get new ones from your Toyota dealer.

Sparingly apply disc brake grease (I use Never-Seize or equivalent)
to both sides of all of the anti-squeal shims. Install the anti-squeal
shims, just as they were removed from the old pads, to the new pads.
Install the inner pad into the pad support plates with the wear indicator
facing up. Install the outer pad. Remove a small amount of brake fluid
from the reservoir under the hood. Using a wooden hammer handle or
other suitable non-marring tool, press in the caliper piston all the way.
If the piston is difficult to push back in, you can open the bleeder plug
on the caliper slightly and allow some fluid to escape while pushing it
in. Untie the caliper and swing it back down over the rotor. Hold the
pin with a wrench again and install the hex bolt and torque it to 20
ft/lb. Install the flexible brake line bracket and torque the bolt to 25
ft/lb. Repeat on the other wheel. Bleed all brakes starting with the
farthest from the master cylinder (right rear) and working to the
closest (left front). Fill the brake fluid reservoir to the full line.


it solves your problem

good luck

How do i remove front pads from 89 probe?


the caliper has 2 bolts holding it in.remove the bolts.slide off the caliper and replace the pads.you need to put a lubricant on the pads,and compress the pistons in all the way with a caliper piston tool,costs about 10 dollars.,or the new pads which are much thicker will not go on.also lube the bolts,known as slider pins or they can jam up.if there is brake pulsation you need to turn the rotors.to remove the rotors ,you need to remove the bracket that the caliper bolts to.there are 2 bolts holding on the bracket.then the rotor can come off to be turned.if the rotors are not thick enough after turning,,they need to be replaced
