My front right brakes grabs and abs system works


I expect that the caliper is sticking. The rails get corroded or rusty and keep the caliper from returning to the rest position. sometimes the caliper pins are corroded and caust the same situation. Usually this seems to occur on one side and the result is that the pads on that side wear more quickly due to the caliper not retracting, thus leaving the pads touching the rotor and wearing quicker. Suggest caliper removal and scrape and wirebrush the rails, replace the caliper pins. I use a high temperature synthetic brake grease on the rails and the caliper pins for lubrication and protectionl.

  1. here is some instuctions on how to do the brake pad replacement this should help you out
  2. Jack up the vehicle on a secure metal part of the vehicle and place jack stands in the same area.
  3. 2 Lower the jack until the weight of the car is solely on the jack stands.
  4. 3 Loosen the lug nuts and remove the wheel from the vehicle, exposing the brake system.
  5. 4 Loosen the caliper slide pins from the rear of the caliper and slide the caliper pins out of the caliper.
  6. 5 Remove the caliper from the brake system and remove the old brake pads.
  7. 6 Secure the caliper to a part of the suspension with a bungee cord to avoid it hanging by the rubber brake hos, where it could be damaged or start leaking.
  8. 7 Loosen the two bolts that hold the caliper bracket to the vehicle and remove the caliper bracket.
  9. 8 Pull the rotor from the vehicle.
  10. 9 Measure the thickness of the rotor with the micrometer. Compare the measurement to the "minimum thickness" stamp on the rotor or the manufacturer specifications in the repair manual.
  11. 10 Take the rotors to a machine shop to have them resurfaced if they are above specification and need resurfacing. Verify the manufacturer's recommendations in the repair manual, as rotors do not always need to be resurfaced or replaced.
  12. 11 Reinstall the rotor on the vehicle.
  13. 12 Place the caliper bracket back on the vehicle and hand tighten the bolts on the back of it.
  14. 13 Torque the bracket bolts down to the manufacturer specifications in the repair manual.
  15. 14 Place a new hardware kit in the caliper bracket and set the pads in the hardware.
  16. 15 Press in the caliper piston with the caliper piston tool to allow the caliper to fit over the new brake pads.
  17. 16 Slide the caliper over the brake pads and reinstall the caliper slide pins.
  18. 17 Torque the caliper slide pins to the manufacturer's specifications.
  19. 18 Replace the wheel on the vehicle and torque it down to manufacturer specifications located in your repair manual.
  20. 19 Lift the vehicle off of the jack stand with the floor jack and remove the jack stands.
  21. 20 Lower the vehicle to the ground and remove the floor jack.
  22. 21 Press the brake pedal several times to pressurize the brake system before test driving the vehicle.
  23. 22 Drive the vehicle, performing several hard stops to make certain the brakes are operating properly.

On an 2002 f150 are the front calipers ''floating''? I removed the old pads and installed new ones. The caliper will not fit back into the assembley even with the pistons pushed all the way in.It seems as...


The pins are suppose to move. I wouldn't try the heat and a big hammer, LOL. But you can move the little rubber covers back and spray some WD-40 on the pins, where they go into the the caliper carrier, let it soak in, try to work the pins loose, clean, lube and reinstall. Lots of WD-40.

Good night please how can I change brake from my car saturn 1997 fron will



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Front Disc Brakes
See Figures 1 through 8
Always replace the brake pads in sets, meaning BOTH front wheels.
  1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it safely using jackstands, then remove the front wheels.
  2. Remove the lower caliper lock pin.

The Saturn brake pad replacement procedure states that after removing the lower caliper pin, you can simply pivot the caliper to a vertical position in order to remove the brake pads. This procedure, when attempted on a 1992 SC with ABS, looked as if it would place excessive stress on the brake line. No changes in steering position seemed to alleviate this tension, so a full pivot for pad removal was not attempted. Another option is to remove the upper caliper pin, but not the lower pin, and simply pivot the caliper down for possible access. However, to prevent damage to the brake line you may wish to remove both guide pins and support the caliper assembly from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
  1. Pivot the caliper up or down on either guide pin or remove both guide pins and support the caliper from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
  2. Remove the 2 brake pads and the pad clips from the caliper support Discard the old pad clips.
  3. Check the caliper pins, pin boots and the piston boot for deterioration or damage.

To install:
  1. Either by hand or using a C-clamp, bottom the piston all the way into the caliper bore.
  2. Carefully lift the inner edge of the piston boot by hand to release any trapped air.
  3. Install new pad clips into the caliper support.
  4. Install the inner and outer brake pads into the support. If installed, remove the temporary support wire from the caliper.
  5. Pivot or position the caliper body on the upper guide pin into position. Compress the boots by hand as the caliper is positioned onto the support.
  6. Lubricate the smooth ends of the lock and guide pins with silicone grease, then install the pin and tighten to 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm). Do not get grease on the pin threads.
  7. Repeat the procedure for the opposite side brake pads.

I need to see the parts for the front disc brakes so i know what the parti need is called it is the part that holds the caliper firm


ASSUMING A MUSTANG GT NOT THE FORD GT EXOTIC 5.4 SUPERCHARGED ONE. IF THE ONE YOU HAVE IS A GT MUSTANG IT IS A CALIPER SLIDE PIN AND BOOT. YOU CAN GET A CALIPER PIN SET OR HARDWARE KIT AT THE DEALERSHIP. OT HAS THE BOOTS AND PINS AND 14MM BOLTS TO SECURE CALIPER TO PIN FOR BRACKET RETAINMENT. MAKE SURE YOU PUT GREASE IN HOLES FOR PINS OR THEY MAY SEIZE UP AND WEAR ONE PAD DOWN.

Successfully changed front brakes but when i went to change rear brakes the caliper seems to be stuck.what can i do?


your rear brake has most likely a drum in hat style brake.

The caliper is not stuck, you need a special tool to rotate the piston of the brake caliper and depress it down. It is connected to your parking brake, that is why this security measure was taken.

the special tool looks like this :

a ratchet fits in the center hole and depending on the style of piston you have you will need a specific side of this "cube" tool.
you may need to slide the pads out to see the piston.

I hope this helps, Goodluck!

Front brake pad replacement


black caliper and black caliper bracket = ATE (Teves), the other color is Akebono. To replace pads, use a screwdriver to stick into slot to pry caliper open a bit. Remove 2 caliper pins (under plastic caps on rubber caliper boots.) Lift caliper from rotor. Remove old pads. Wipe caliper anti-squeak onto back of new pads, and place pads into caliper. Replace caliper onto rotor and bracket. Insert pins and tighten securely (you can lubricate the pins) Replace plastic boot covers. Install wheels. Lower vehicle.
