Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.

Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.

Remove belt and unbolt center pulley bolt. I believe it's a backward theaded bolt. Turn to the right to loosen.

How do i turn in the caliper piston when replacing the brake pads


There is a tool made for this shane_barnha_1.pngGO HERE for instructions to use this tool, Optionally you can leave the old Brake Pad in place and you can use a C-Clamp to do the same thing. shane_barnha_2.pngAnother way is to use a very large pair of channel locks, but be sure to protect your piston with an OLD brake pad.

Front brake pads 99 Regal


Its very similar if not the same. That style Impala uses the same brake and axle assembly as the Regal so you should be in familiar territory once the wheels are off. Good luck!

Changing pads on a 02 Regal


All you need for the front is a C clamp. Lube the slides and anywhere there is medal contact. For the rear brakes you need a special tool to turn in the caliper. If you buy a chilton or haynes manual it should tell you how to do it.
