Hi
Basically the brake pads lock with pressure to the disc, you get 2 different types of caliper one you can just get a flat head screw driver between the disc and pad and push them apart, you wil need to take the top of the brake fluid to do this. if it moves back slowly then you can continue with that. I use a pair of large grips to push the calliper cylinder all the way back in. to allow for the new pads.The other type of calliper needs to be screwed back in although im pretty sure you have the first ones as mentioned, they are very much like ford brakes, as I'm sure you are aware ford did own jaguar for sometime.

Let me know if you need me to be more specific
Regards
Dan

Steps to replacing rear brake pads


A special tool is required to compress the caliper piston on the rear brakes-don't use a C-clamp on the piston.
Raise the vehicle and remove the tire. The rear calipers have only one guide pin. Remove this pin and raise the caliper. Remove the old brake pads. Using the special tool compress the caliper piston-the piston will have one or two slots on it. These slots must in the correct position to remount the caliper. Install the new brake pads and slide the caliper back over the rotor and replace the guide pin. If the caliper doesn't slide over the rotor you'll need to reset the slots on the piston. Replace the tires and you're ready to go.

Are there any special tools needed to change the brakes on a 2006 toyota sienna? Standard two bolts that hold it on?


You will probably not need anything other than a metric socket wrench set.

Many Toyota models have disc brake calipers that will flip up or down when you remove one of the two bolts that hold the calipers on. I am not sure of the setup on the Sienna.

When you remove either the upper or lower bolt and move the caliper, you can then remove the old pads. Also, you will need to push the piston(s) back into their cylinders to give you enough space to install the new pads. A large C clamp will usually suffice to push in the pistons.

I assume that you are talking about the front (disc) brakes. Some autos still have drum brakes on the rear, and those are a different story. They require several specialty tools to remove and replace the shoes.

How to replace rear disc pds on VW Golf 2.0 TDI 2006


Remove the wheel first.

In there you will see the brake pads.

The brake pads are held in place by the caliper. The caliper is secured with two 15 mm bolts, and two 13 mm on the opposite side.
Once you undo the caliper you should also find an apex clip on top op the pads.

Once you have done that , slide the caliper out and remove the pads.

To refit you may need to compress the caliper. You can use a clamp, but on VW I compress the caliper using a robust wooden stick as a lever inside the U shaped part.

Before putting the new brakes I use an hand file tool to mill the corners of the pad, this will increase aderence to the rotor disk.

Remember that the car will have reduced braking power when you install new pads.

Regards.

Are any special tools required or any special process to change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Jetta? I have changed pads on BMW's Fords Chevys etc....but you never know, so I thought I'd ask. thanks!


These cars usually have disk brakes in the back. You need a caliper piston rotator tool, this tool fits into the caliper piston and you must turn it in to retract the piston, it fits onto a 3/8 " drive socket wrench. Npa sell a universal one for like $15.00 - $20.00.

How to replace rear brake pads


Jack up car, remove wheel. There are two bolts that hold the caliper on. Remove these. Caliper comes off, take old pads out. There is a special tool to compress the piston back into the caliper (do not use a C Clamp on the rears.) Put new pads back on, re-install the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Pump the brake pedal until it is firm. Done.

Anything to watch when changing pads and rotors on a 2006 Tucson?


Not really anything special, just if you have rear disc brakes there is a special tool you need to push (rotate) the caliper piston in because of the fact they are special calipers equipped for parking brake function.
