How to change rear brakes on 2003 PT Cruiser


loosen the tire lugs while tire on the ground, jack up the vehicle and support it with a jack stand, secure vehicle to prevent rolling and make sure it is in park with the engine off. now finish up loosening the lug nuts and take off the wheel. now open the brake oil filler cap, if it is a disc brake set up get a pry bar or large flat head screw driver and insert it between the brake disc and the rotor and pry it loose to push the brake caliber piston back in its seated position now remove the screws that hold the caliber normaly 2 screws. now clean the caliber with cleaner you might have to push the piston back more using a c-clamp or a large channel lock or you can buy a tool that you twist to seat the piston back into the caliber. mount the new disc pads match them to the old ones re position the caliber into its place and re install the 2 mounting bolts, do the same for the other side and once done get in the car and pump the brake peddle to push the piston against the disc pads mount the wheels and tighten the lug nuts remove jack stand and lower the vehicle, check your brake fluid level and top it off if needed secure oil cap get into the vehicle start it and pump brakes again for several times until it feels hard. now you can take it on a test drive. drive about 20 mph for a several yards come to a complete stop do that for about 8 times to set the brake pads, buy brake pads with life time warranty and save the box and the receipt when you are ready to change them again take them off and put them in the box and take them to be exchanged you can buy a book at the auto parts place they list the complete instruction for disc brakes and brake shoe. for brake shoes we recommend you read the book as there are too many little parts to deal with

Brake pads


The part that is hitting it is the brake caliber. The piston needs to be pushed back in. Get a 4-inch clamp and a piece of wood and put the wood over caliber, then clamp and tighten and push the piston back in.

2003 s type brake front pad - what tools are need to change the pads


the front pads are pretty straight forward,just a c clamp is sufficient to press the calibers,make sure the brake fluid reservoir cap is off when you do them..just unbolt the calibers from the rotors and they work the same as standard brakes,but the rear calibers at time will need a caliber tool to turn and press the piston simultaneously

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 take the front caliper off a 1990 toyota camry? i undid the 2 bolts on it, now do i just pull or what?


You can sometime just pull it off but sometimes you will need to take a screwdriver and push the brake pad back on the caliber piston side. This will force the piston back and allow you to remove the caliber. After you remove it you will need to compress the caliber piston fully back in order to allow room the install the new pads and get them back on the rotor. Sometimes you can fully compress it while the caliber is still installed. On some vehicles like Honda you need a special tool in order to compress the caliber. Most auto parts stores will lend you the tool if you buy the pads from them. Be sure and loosen the master cylinder fill cap to allow the brake fluid to expand in the master cylinder. Clean everything off with spray brake cleaner before installing the new pads and clean the new pads throughly. Be sure and install pads in pairs. Do both front wheels or both back wheels not just one.

Rear brake calipers


A big pair of channel locks will collaspe the caliper but it does take some muscle or you can release the brake line nut and releave the pressure but then you would have to bleed the brakes.
