SOURCE: I have a 2005 Kia Amanti, In the past year i have

It's sad that the dealer cannot or will not solve this problem. Sounds like they want to keep having you spend money on pads and rotors in stead of fixing the problem. I would look for a shop that has better experience. It doesn't have to be a dealer shop to find the best people.
Well, in most cases like this, the caliber 80% to blame. 20% is the hardware ( springs and clips ). The hardware helps keep the shoes in place and helps relieve pressure/sticking when brakes are not in use.
The best solution would be to replace calibers and hardware on both sides. Doing both sides prevent from one side being stronger or weaker than the other. Therefore, one side will not wear out faster than the other.

SOURCE: Need instructions to replacing rear drum brake pads. I've changed

This is usually pretty simple. Start by removing the brake drum. Sometimes the brake pads themselves prevent easy removal. There should be an adjustment hole on the back side of the backing plate. Pop the rubber plug out. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to turn the notched disc. one way will tighten and the other way will loosen it, usually both sides are different directions. Once the drum pops off you can begin replacing pads. I like to take a digital photo first, just in case... I then take each piece off one at a time and set it on the ground exactly how it went in. There is usually one big spring that holds the two shoes together, this one is tricky to release, but it's easier if you adjust that tensioner all the way in first. There will also be a couple of springs with retainers holding the pads in place. There will be a notch in the retainer, you'll have to push down and twist 90 degrees to release retainers and springs. They make a special tool, but you can use a pliers or vice grip if you're careful. Don't loose the pin or spring and retainer. Clean everything with brake cleaner and start to re-assemble.

How to change the brakes on an 2005 Audi A6 I know you need a special tool to change the rear pads. But I only want to change the front pads. Is this something I can do myself or do I need to take to Audi...


The front pads are like all other cars, a rachet and a C Clamp. The special tool is sold at your local parts store, its a box with tips on it, as they screw in.

Changing rear brakes 2005 freestar


The brake calipar pistons on the rear, have to be turned in with a special tool, they can't be pressed in like the front. turn them in just far enough for the new pads to fit over the rotors.

Rear Brakes 2005 Jetta


im sorry bro i find that you needing special tools a load of bs. i may be wrong but i really really doubt it. brakes are easy. first locate the caliper and there should be 2 bolts holding that tight. loosen the top bolt and then take out the lower bolt from the caliper. the old pads should just fall out. remove the master cylinder cap. (the jug with brake fluid in it.) compress the piston replace the old pads and push the claiper back down on the rotor. tighten bolts back up pump the brakes till hard with the car off and then repeat for the other side.

Replacing brakes, 03 mini


there is nothing special about replacing the wear sensors. The tools that you will need are 7mm allen, 16mm 6 point socket, ratchet, T-50, large channel locks, and a keyed pad pusher for the rear calipers.

the brake pad warning light is controlled by a sensor located in the front and rear brake pads, small contact with 2 wires that plud into a harness, if they are bad I think the replacement cost is around 5-10 dollars for a new one, there will only be one in the front and one in the rear, the service light is turned out by a special tool at the dealer

Calipers will not go back on


If you are putting pads on the back brakes,you need a special tool for that, the pistons turn in, not like the front where you can push them in.

2000 Silvrado z71 4wd Brake Pad Replacement


crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.

On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.
