If you are working on the rear brakes they take a special tool. The piston screws in. If you're working on the front brakes you have to use a C-Clamp and squeeze them back in. Make sure you take a little brake fluid out of the master cylinder to keep it from spilling out.

then put it back in reverce of taking apart(dont forget when you have put it back together press the brake peddle a couple of times then top up the brake fluid in the reservare in between the recarmended lines on the reservare.

2001 lincoln ls brakes replaced pads master cylinder and now will not pump up


You must have the antilock brake unit bleed, that requires a special tool that holds the hydraulic pop- it valves open electrically. See the dealer or a well equipped brake shop.

Need information on how to reinstall rear brakes on 2000 beetle


Remove the old Brake Pads
  • 1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car make sure the car is in gear. Do not set the parking brake. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.
  • 2 Open the hood of your car and locate the master cylinder. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.
  • 3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.
  • 4 Remove the parking brake cable from the back of the caliper. Use the pliers to remove the cable clip (restraining clip).
  • 5 Use the socket wrench to remove the upper mounting bolt from the caliper. If the upper guide pin moves while you do this, use a back-up wrench to hold the upper guide pin.
  • 6 Rotate the caliper downward, pivoting it on the lower caliper bolt. Remove the inner and outer brake pads from the caliper.
  • Install the new Brake Pads
  • 1 Turn the caliper piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper housing. Insert the new brake pads into the caliper.
  • 2 Swing the caliper upward and into place. Apply a thin coat of thread locking compound to the bolt and use the socket wrench to tighten the bolt to 271 inch lb. (35 Nm).
  • 3 Reattach the parking brake cable to the caliper.
  • 4 Replace the tire wheel assembly. Lower the car to the ground.
  • 5 Pump the brake pedal a few times to seat the brake pads. Do this before trying to move your car.
  • 6 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.
  • 7 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week after you install the new brake pads. Try not to do any hard stopping when you are seasoning the brakes.

    How to trouble shoot the brake system?


    To trouble shoot the brake system you have to check:AntiLock Brake System ABS:
    Hydraulic Modulator
    Basically this unit holds steady or bleeds off pressure in brake line, as necessary, when the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) detects an abnormal deceleration in the speed of the wheel. On 2000 and later models the EBCM and Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) are mounted on a bracket attached on the left strut tower.
    Wheel Speed Sensors, brake fluid level, brake hoses and lines, inspect and replacement, Brake hydraulic system-bleeding, Brake light switch, check, adjustment and replacement.
    Disk brake caliper, disk brake pads, drum brake shoes, master cylinder, master cylinder reservoir, O-rings replacement, parking brake adjustment, parking brake cables inspect and replacement, parking brake shoes-replacement, power brake booster, check or replacement, wheel cylinder inspect and replace.

    1999 Ford Taurus, replaced leaking master cylinder, installed new brake pads, bled brake lines, pedal still soft. What else can I check?


    There is a special tool required to bleed the brakes, it plugs into the ABS hydraulic control under the hood and holds the ABS valves open to remove the trapped air during bleeding, u will need to have the dealer bleed the brakes, they are most likely the only ones that will have this special too, but u can try an outside shop, I am sure Snap on tools makes this tool in the aftermarket tool catagory..

    Cant depress brake caliper to replace pads


    disc brakes on the rear of a vehicle have a screw out mechanism that attaches to the ebrake . this means that you must turn the caliper piston to recess into the cylinder.
    open the bleed screw to make it move eazier.

    Daewoo front brakes


    The single-piston floating-caliper disc brake is self-centering and self-adjusting. The caliper is able to slide from side to side so it will move to the center each time the brakes are applied. Also, since there is no spring to pull the pads away from the disc, the pads always stay in light contact with the rotor (the rubber piston seal and any wobble in the rotor may actually pull the pads a small distance away from the rotor). This is important because the pistons in the brakes are much larger in diameter than the ones in the master cylinder. If the brake pistons retracted into their cylinders, it might take several applications of the brake pedal to pump enough fluid into the brake cylinder to engage the brake pads
