How do you put front brake pads on cadillac sedan deville 1996


Front brakes on all modern cars are disc brakes. The front brakes generally provide 80% of the stopping power, and so tend to wear faster than the rear. Replacing them - pads, rotors and calipers - is quite simple once you understand the process, and can save you a great deal of money. These instructions will include a full front brake replacement. Also, having a service manual for your vehicle will save your sanity, as well as time and money. If you only need pads, or pads and rotors, but not calipers, skip the steps for replacing calipers. Repeat the steps below for each side of the car as necessary.

How to change front disc brake pads on 2000 Mazda Bravo B2500


jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible

I need instructions on how to remove the rotors and replace the front brake pads on a 2004 mazda 6.


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stand(s)
  • Wheel chock
  • Turkey baster
  • DOT 3 brake fluid
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • 1/2-inch drive breaking bar
  • 1/2-inch drive socket set (up to 21 mm)
  • 1/2-inch drive ratchet
  • 1/2-inch drive adjustable torque wrench (recommended)
  • Impact screwdriver with Phillips head bit
  • Hammer
  • Bungee cord
  • C-clamp
  • Brake clean spray
  • Shop rag(s)
    How to Replace Front Rotors on a Mazda6
  1. Step 1 Park the Mazda6 on a flat paved surface. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch. Place a wheel chock behind one of the rear tires and open the hood. **** out half the fluid from the master cylinder reservoir using the turkey baster and discard. Replace the master cylinder cap securely.
  2. Step 2 Break the lug nuts loose on the front tire, using the breaking bar and a 21-mm socket. Raise the left quarter panel first with the floor jack and place the jack stand under the left front frame rail. You can lift the right side too or just do one side at a time. Remove the lug nuts and the wheel when elevated.
  3. Step 3 Pry the two plastic caliper slide bolt covers off with the flathead screwdriver and remove the caliper slide bolts with the ratchet and a socket. Pry the caliper off the pads and rotor with the screwdriver and support it to the coil spring with the bungee cord so it does not dangle by the brake hose. Compress the piston of the caliper inward using the C-clamp until the piston bottoms out in the caliper casing.
  4. Step 4 Remove the pads from the caliper anchor by prying them out gently with the screwdriver. Be sure to memorize how they were positioned in the anchor so you can replace them the same way in the event you're not replacing the pads as well. Remove the caliper anchor bolts using the ratchet and a socket. They're going to be extremely tight, so be prepared. Remove the caliper anchor.
  5. Step 5 Locate the retaining screw on the hub face of the rotor. Use the impact screwdriver in the reverse position with a Phillips head bit and strike the end of the screwdriver with the hammer. Remove the screw. Remove the rotor. If it is stubbornly stuck to the hub, strike it a few times with force on the plated fins of the rotor.
  6. Step 6 Spray the new rotor with brake clean and be generous to clean off the oil coating that new rotors have on them so they will not rust from condensation in the air while they were in storage. Clean both sides and wipe dry with a shop rag. Place the new rotor on the hub and make sure to line up the retaining screw hole in the rotor to the hub. Replace and tighten the retaining screw.
  7. Step 7 Replace the caliper anchor and bolts and tighten tightly. Replace the pads into the caliper anchor in the same manner you removed them. Replace the caliper over the pads and rotor and replace and tighten the caliper slide bolts. Replace the plastic covers.
  8. Step 8 Replace the wheel and lug nuts and tighten the lug nuts so they are flush. Lower the Mazda6 and torque the lug nuts alternately with the torque wrench, set at 80 foot-pounds and the 21-mm socket. If you raised both sides of the front axle, wait until you've replaced the right side rotor, otherwise repeat Step 2 through Step 8 for the right side.
  9. Step 9 Pump the foot brake pedal until it feels normal to restore the hydraulic pressure back to the compressed caliper pistons. Release the parking brake.
  10. Step 10 Check and add new DOT 3 brake fluid to the master cylinder and replace the cap securely. Close the hood. Remove the wheel chock and test drive

I have a 1999 Old Silhouette Brake Warning Light


The front pads are worn down which makes the brake fluid fill up the void the brake pads are missing now due to wear. Replace the brake pads and brake rotors if the rotors are worn too, then top off the brake fluid if needed. You can top of the break fluid for now, but that's just going to turn off your break light warning till you breaks wear it self down to the point you damage the brake rotors.

Have the brake pads replaced and inspect the brake rotors, if your good with common tools you can do this job your self in under 1 hour. Tools you need is a jack, 15mm socket, ratchet, screw driver and a clamp. The Clamp is optional, you can get the brake pads at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and good luck.

Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???


No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.

When i apply my brakes on my 98 contour the front end shakes


Sounds like you have bad brake pads or rotors ..if you are not mechanical take them in somewhere ......if the brake pads are left too long the metal will wear away the rotors and then it all needs to be replaced....hopefully just the pads need replacing but it sounds like if it is shaking that bad rotors are gone too. usually the pads will make a sqeaking sound when the get to worn so you know that they need replacing.

Do you have step by step instructions to change the front brake pads?


first jack up one side of car with the emergency brake on, and use a jack stand under the frame. then take off tire. unloosen the two bolts that hold the caliper to the rotor assembly. take out old pads. use a c-clamp to push the piston into the caliper(but make sure you take the brake fluid cap off on the reservoir under the hood) then reinstall the new pads and put the caliper back on and your done on that side. repeat for other side.
