Changing rear brakes on 2000 lincoln LS


You will need a special tool for the back brakes,Autozone will loan it to you for 60 bucks,you will get it back when you return,I used it.I replaced brake pads front and back and both back rotors.The driver side rear had metal on metal,all disc brakes,brake pads on that rear side were completely worn down to metal,the driver side was like new,kept wondering why,replaced both rear rotors,put back together,then then I noticed where brake line hose went into brake caliber was leaking,so that caused the side with new like brake pads not to be gripping disc putting all brake pressure of that one side,so the copper fitting their was bad,put new one on and leak stopped.

How to change front brake pads


need to know the make and model. but on the average you need to pull the brakes off the rotor usually held on with 2 bolts on the rear of the brake housing. open brake fluid reservoir and squeeze the pads as far as you can (this can be done a big set of channel lock pliers or a big set of vise grips, just remember to put something on the caliber to protect it from gouging or damage) into the brake housing before installing new pads or they will not fit bad over the rotor. the pads usually just slide in or out and snap in place.

96 accord rear brakes replacing pads but caliber will not compress i tried c clamp tryed screwing it in nop what the hek am i doing wrong


The caliper piston will have two,more likely three notches for the tool to turn the caliper,one side turns left hand,the other side is left hand,push and turn and you will see progress.Then align the notches for the brake pad to fit correctly .

We put a c-clamp pm the caliber piston but could not get it to move--replacing brake pads on a 2008 tiburon


some of the newer cars have a caliper piston that screw back in not press back in. look at the caliper and see if it has a place to put a screw driver in and turn counter clock wise. i learned this on a 2007 honda accord. hope it helps.

How do you change the rear brakes pads and a caliper on a 2004 XJ8?


you will need to 1st get a caliber turning set from harbor freight, it very cheap maybe 35-40 bucks...you need to raise both rear tires,crank the car put it in neutral so that the electric module releases the brakes from park position,then you disconnect the neg battery term.remove the tires, open the hood,remove the fluid reservoir cap,remove the calibers by the two bolts facing the inside,then remove the pads,then take the caliber tooland lock the two male nipples ends inside the female piston plates(u will see how the fit)now make sure the brace plate of the of the caliber tool is snug and begin turning the tool threaded side clockwise,and the bolt near the plate should be turned counter clockwise and each turn will turn the piston inside the caliber until its all the way flush with the inside of the caliber wall itself...then place the pads inside the caliber rotors are the same as removing from any other car,they may need a good tap with a hammer,some may have one alen head screw.But replace the rotors and pads.Once they are replaced,lower the car,reconnect the neg terminal,put the fluid cap back on,crank the car,pump the brakes and hold the center console lever upuntil the brake light goes off and u will hear the rear brake module engage.Hope this helps!

Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

How do you change the front disk pads


The pads are mounted to the caliper. The caliper is bolted to the spindle bracket. There is brake hardware which should be replaced with the pads.
Look behind the wheel at the backside of the spindle bracket. The spindle bracket is on the verticle shaft with coils on one end and an A shaped bracket on the other. There are usually 2 bolts that may have normal bolt ends or "Allen" bit fittings.

When you buy the brake hardware you can check for the proper socket for the mounting bolt. You unbolt the caliper, use a rope or wire to suspend it under the frame without disconnecting the brake line.

The pads come off with the hardware. You need to compress the caliper pistons to make the new pads fit. Use a C clamp and an old pad to squeeze the pistons back into the caliper. Remove the Master Cylinder cover so fluid can return.

Then use a bonding chemical like "brake quiet" to mount the rear pad to the caliper piston. Mount outside pad to caliper and then slide caliper over the rotor on the spindle bracket. Lube the slides of the new brake hardware and bolt into place.

You should have the rotors checked for thickness and whether they are warpped before you put on the new pads.

Replacing rear brake pads. I cannot get the calibers to spread and fit the new pads? How does the calibers move back in..


No do not use a c clamp to press the rotor back in unless you plan on breaking your clamp !!!! On that particular model of (Tiburon) the calipers screw back in.
