CV axle shaft replacement


Instructions
1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

  • 4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
  • 5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.
  • 6. Unfasten the thru-bolt on the vertical sway bar with a socket wrench and remove the bolt from the sway bar. Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
  • 7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle.
    Install in reverse order.

    How do I remove front brake caliper on 1996 mazda 626


    if you are just changing the pads there are 2 bolts that split the caliper in halve and allow you to change the pads thres two bolts are located top and bottom on the backside of the caliper and require an allen wrench for removal to remove the whole caliper there are 2 bolts on the back side closer to the center top and bottom that require a 17mm socket remove these 2 bolts clamp off the flex brake hose with a clamp and remove from caliper and work up and down until caliper comes away from disc

    Rotors on 1999 saturn sl 2 are bad and i want to replace them


    loosen the lugs. lift the car and support it safely. take the tires off the front of the car. through the caliper is an allen head bolt. the head of the bolt faces inside the wheel well. you will have to put your head inside the wheel well to see where to put the allen wrench. the size of the allen wrench should be 3/8. loosen the bolt and slide the caliper and brakes off of the rotor. Support the caliper with wire or string. do not let the caliper hang by the soft rubber brake hose. the caliper is the only thing that holds the rotor in place. the rotor should now slide right off the lugnuts. Check the brake pads they need to be replaced also. If the pads spent any kind of time against bad rotors they are garbage.When it is time to put the new brake pads on the saturn open the master cylinder so the brake fluid can return to the reservoir when you compress the calipers back to their resting position. In order to compress the calipers you will probably need a large C clamp. Reassemble the brakes. Remember to check the level of brake fluid and close the master cylinder. Before driving the car be sure to pump the brakes to assure you have proper feel and to make sure everything is in order.

    What kind of wrench loosens the tightner springs on the front brakes on a 1999 1500 Chevy pickup?


    There are no springs on the front brakes of a GM vehicle. The calipers are floating type, and all alignment is accomplished by sliding bolts in the caliper. If it's these bolts that you are referring to, then it takes an allen wrench.

    How do i change both front and rear brake pads on a 2004 mazda rx8?


    CHANGING FRONT BRAKE PADS
    Jack up the car. Take off your tire. Find the bolt on the back of the caliper and take it off. This should release the caliper, pull the caliper off the disc. Now you should be able to take the pad out. Replace the pad. You'll need a special tool to reset the caliper. As the brakes wear down, the caliper gets tighter so the brakes still work. I'm not sure exactly what its called, but you can borrow one from auto zone. Follow the instructions that come with it to reset the caliper. Slide the caliper back over the disc. If it doesn't go on, you need to reset the caliper more. Put the relese bolt back in. Put your tire back on.Drive slowly and test the brakes.
    CHANGING THE REAR BRAKE PADS
    The rear brakes on the rx8 are a bit different than most setups...be careful! The only way to move the piston back into the caliper is by way of a special allen head bolt that is directly behind the piston, on the back side of the caliper, installed under a 14mm bolt.
    You have to remove this bolt to gain access to the allen head. As you loosen the allen head bolt(counter-clockwise), the piston will move back into the caliper.
    Installation is pretty typical, again, the allen head bolt being the unusual part. The manual says to tighten this bolt until the pads contact the rotor, then loosen the bolt 1/3rd of a turn, then reinstall the 14mm bolt.

    Brake pad replacement steps for 1996 Mazda Protege


    The pins (slides) are corroded, you need to clean them up. Use Liquid wrench or some such to loosen things up, then have at 'em with fine sand or emery paper. When everything is nice and bright and shiny, brake- lube the slides, reassemble. Take your honey out for a root beer.

    Rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding


    Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
    The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.
