Ask a mate to undo the bleed nipple while you lever out the piston,let them undo it after you apply pressure so that you dont get air in system.

How to put rear brakes on


Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Replace brake pads as necessary. Special tool is required to retract caliper piston to fit over new pads. (see picture below)
Retract piston in caliper using special tool to rotate clockwise and make sure the notch in the piston is aligned properly so the tab on the inner pad will fit in properly.
Reinstall caliper assembly and caliper mounting bolts.

I've got the old pads out on the front discs on my Mazda 323i '96 put the distance between the disc and the caliper for the outer replacement pad isn't wide enough to allow the new pad to slide in? is...


The caliper should slide in and out to allow it to line up with the rotor (needs to come out some, right?). as long as you have the piston fully retracted, the total distance between pads should be more than the thickness of the rotor. Am I making sense?

How to change front disc brake pads on 2000 Mazda Bravo B2500


jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible

Changing the front brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6


no that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man

Change the brakes on 2007 sport trac


it has front and rear disc brakes, disc brakes are very simple to change out. Most disc brakes have two bolts that hold them on, one on the bottom one on the top on the inside of the brake caliper, they may be an allen head, or just a bolt. Remove them counter-clockwise. After you remove the two bolts, lift up and away on the caliper and the whole assembly will come off. Once you pull the assembly off you will see the two pads, one of them is driven by a piston, the other one is fixed. Remove the fixed one, they just pop off (have little metal clips you may have to slide the pad off). Take a C-clamp or something comparable to squeeze with, place it on the back of the caliper and on the old pad thereby squeezing the cylinder back into the piston, once you squeeze the cylinder back into the piston, it will give you room needed for thicker new brake pads. Piston should retract with the c-clamp fairly easy, shouldn't be a whole lot of resistance. Remove c-clamp after you get it to retract and remove old pad. Put new pad on, just like you took the old ones off. All four are basically the same to change out, they all have two bolts holding them on. You pull those, get the pistons to retract and replace the worn pads, put them back on, line up holes, put bolts back in... and your good to go. When you get back in the car and turn the key on, you may have to pump the brakes a few times.

How can i change the rear brakes pads?


1.Remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir

2.Loosen the wheel nuts then raise the vehicle and remove wheel

3.Push the piston back into the bore to provide room for the new brake pads.A C-clamp can be used to accomplish this As the piston is depressed to the bottom of the caliper bore the fluid in the master cylinder will rise.Make sure is doesnt overflow.If necessary drain off some of the fluid. 4.Before removing anything,spray the disc,and brake pads with brake system cleaner dont use compressed air 5.remove the caliper mounting bolt,the banjo fitting for the brake hose shouldnt be disconnected unless you are removing the caliper or hose replacement

6.Swing the caliper up and secure the caliper up towards the spring with a piece of wire then remove the lower and upper anti-rattle springs.Remove the outer brake pad and shim then remove the inner brake pad ans shim(s)

7.Remove and inspect the upper and lower pad retainer clips,the pad retainer clips should fit snugly in the caliper mounting bracket;if they dont,replace them.Apply thin film of high-temperature grease to the retainer

8.Apply anti-squel compound to the back of pads install the new inner pad and shim(s) make sure the "ears" on the upper and lower ends of the pad are fully engaged with their respective grooves and the pad retainer clips

9.Install the new outer pad and shim if new pad has no shim take the old shimoff the old pad and install it on the new outer pad.Install the upper and lower anti-rattle springs

10.Clean off the caliper pin and coat it with high-temperature grease.Lubricate the lower caliper pin with grease too thenswing the caliper down over the disc and new pads (if the piston hits the inner pad depress the piston further into the caliper bore with your c-clamp

11.Install the mounting bolt and tighten it to the torque specifications (44-63) 99 and earlier models (51-55)00 and later models
12.Put the wheel back on and tighten lug nuts

How to change rear brake pads on my 1992 mr2 gt


Parts needed...
Metric socket set.
Large standard screwdriver and or small pry bar
never-seize lubricant
new brake pads
12" channel lock pliers or a caliper piston turning cube http://www.google.com/base/a/3862711/D14736274280982705237
Dead blow hammer
Synthetic brake grease
Aerasol brake cleaner
Rubber gloves / safety glasses / facemask
remove the 14mm bolt from the lower caliper slide.
If the bolt will not turn with moderate force applied STOP! and take it to a garage to be dealt with as you are not equipped to remove a broken bolt. Heat will be required to remove it that only an oxy / acetylene rig can provide. 
if the bolt comes free proceed as follows. 
Remove bolt 
Insert prying tool between lower lip of caliper and rotor. 
Pry the caliper up. It will  pivot on the other caliper slide and swing upwards allowing you to access the brake pads in the caliper mount. 
Remove the old pads one at a time by prying them away from the rotor face with a prying tool. 
Match each pad as it is removed with its corresponding replacement and insert. The pads are seated in metal clips and may require multiple attempts and mild force to install. You can use the handle of you hammer to tap them into place. 
Once the pads are installed you can continue with retracting the piston on the calipers. 
Using the piston cube or the pliers, rotate the caliper piston clockwise to retract it into the caliper again. This will take a while especially if you have pliers to work with. If the piston refuses to turn you will need to replace the caliper. This is best left to a garage that is familiar with bleeding ABS systems. Reinstall the old pads and  the caliper and take it to a service center.
Once the piston is retracted into the caliper you can remove the caliper from its guide pin. 
Slide the caliper away from you to remove it from the upper guide pin. 
lubricate the pin with synthetic grease and reinstall the caliper on the guide pin sliding it towards you as far as it will go to re-seat the rubber dust boot. 
Then rotate the caliper down over the new pads. 
Apply never-seize to the threads of the bolt and reinstall it. 
Apply moderate force when installing as excessive force will snap the bolt. 
Once finished clean the entire assembly with brake clean to remove any grease or dust that may have accumulated.

The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.
