Don't do this if your not comfortable working on cars ... someone could get hurt ...or your car could. Make sure front wheel are blocked and car is in either park or first gear.

  1. Don't set the parking break.
  2. Remove the two shoulder bolts on back of caliper .. .10mm I think.
  3. Pull caliper up and forward. Don't let it hank by the brake line.
  4. Remove pad, making sure to not lose the small clip that holds onto the ears of the pads.
  5. You need to get a special tool to screw in the piston that is on the caliper. This can be obtained for about $15 at most automotive store.
  6. Be careful to not tear the rubber piston boot when screwing piston back in ... go slow.
  7. Wipe caliper off of any dirt. Don't use compressed air. Use a small wire brush to remove any corrosion in the area where the pad ears go, if needed.
  8. Replace new pads into caliper and remount caliper onto rotor.
  9. Screw shoulder bolts back in. Don't force them as the shoulder fits into a hole in the backing plate. You should be able to screw them in by hand. Make sure there tight.
  10. Get in car and work parking brake about 5 times. This will set the pads

The rear brakes are locking even after i changed the pads


Could be several things: The calipers (for disc pads) or wheel cylinders (for shoes) are worn and dirty and are sticking. These would need to be rebuilt or replaced. You could check it by jacking up the car, applying the brakes then see if the wheels move freely after letting off the brake. Could also be warped rotors (if pads). Or, I had a car that brakes locked up and I realized that the new shoes I had put on had gotten oil on them somehow. I put a 2nd new set on and fixed the problem.

How do you replace rear brake pads on 2006 kia spectra


Don't do this if your not comfortable working on cars ... someone could get hurt ...or your car could. Make sure front wheel are blocked and car is in either park or first gear.
  1. Don't set the parking break.
  2. Lift corner up to remove tire.
  3. Remove the two shoulder bolts on back of caliper .. .10mm I think.
  4. Pull caliper up and forward. Don't let it hank by the brake line.
  5. Remove pad, making sure to not lose the small clip that holds onto the ears of the pads.
  6. You need to get a special tool to screw in the piston that is on the caliper. This can be obtained for about $15 at most automotive store.
  7. Be careful to not tear the rubber piston boot when screwing piston back in ... go slow.
  8. Wipe caliper off of any dirt. Don't use compressed air. Use a small wire brush to remove any corrosion in the area where the pad ears go, if needed.
  9. Replace new pads into caliper and remount caliper onto rotor.
  10. Screw shoulder bolts back in. Don't force them as the shoulder fits into a hole in the backing plate. You should almost be able to screw them in by hand. tighten good
  11. Get in car and work parking brake about 5 times. This adjusts the pads to the rotors.
  12. Repeat on other side.

the front and rear pads are very easy to replace although you do need a piston wind back tool to replace the rears,my concern is if you are having to ask this question you probally should not be fitting the pads being a safety related item you cannot take risks.my best and honest advice would be to get a mechanic to replace them for you.Sorry if you dont think i,m being helpfull but you cant take chances with brakes.cheers
