What is the best Brake Pad for a European car

What is the best after market brake pad for a European car? Since our shop specializes in imports, we get that question a-lot, and when it comes to European cars, Akebono brake pads are the only brake pad we use, unless of course the customer asks for something else. The Akebono is a little more expensive than some of the other after market Brake Pads, but they are well worth the money. Akebono brake pads are formulated to significantly reduce the black dust found so frequently on European vehicles. Which means less dust on your wheels and less work you have to do to keep them clean. As long as we have been installing the Akebono brake pads on our customers vehicles, we have never had even a single come back. That is why we will always recommend Akebono to all of our cutomers. Akebono brake pads are available for Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, SAAB, Volkswagen, and Volvo

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 cant seem to get the rear brake caliper to compress so it will fit over the new pads

There are two stlyes of calipers for the rears. One is ratcheting so the piston has to be turned back to colaspe. The other type compresses with a C clamp. If a large retaining spring is on the inner part of the caliper you have the ratcheting type. A brake cable will attach to the spring as well. If not it will compress instead

How do I replace front brake pads

Ok, this job is going to depend on how confident you are with doing this sort of thing.

What you will need:

  • Trolley jack and axle stands
  • Ring spanner set probably 1/2, 9/16, 5/8 and larger.
  • Brake pads
  • G-clamp or piston winding tool.
  • Sometimes a rubber mallet
  • Workshop radio
  • Good hand cleaner
Raise the car at the jacking points and secure safely on axle stands at manufacturers recommended points. (Be sure to "crack" lose the wheel nuts before lifting)
Remove wheels.

Remove the caliper:
It SHOULD be a single piston slide caliper. so remove the two bolts holding it on from the rear. They should be really tight so if you need to crack them with a mallet then carefully do so, making sure you are turning in the right direction. Not always a problem. The caliper should open with some persuasion enough to slide it off the disc. Be careful not to drop it as the brake line will stay connected. Inspect for any signs of fluid leaking from the line of around the dust boots.

Remove the Pads:
The pads now should clip or slide out of the caliper casting. Note one of the pads should be fitted with a thin chrome metal piece, this is the audible wear indicator, this make the squealing sound to alert you before the pad gets down to metal, ruining your disc so note the order they come off to replace the news correctly.

Reset the piston:
The piston will be out as to compensate for loss of material on the pads so this is where you need to push it back in. The G-clamp or piston tool needs to be used here to wind it back in. Now is a good time to add some grease to the two caliper slides.

Fit the new pads:
Once the pistons are in, fit the new pads in the correct order and sliding them back into the caliper as far as possible, one bottoming out on the piston face and the other into the caliper casting on the other side making sure they don't bind in the casting. (If binding occurs, remover the pads and with a file, square up the channels in the caliper casting and reinstall making sure they slide in firmly but easily.)

Refit the caliper:
Now Slide the caliper back over the disc and bolt it back up. Don't over tighten the caliper bolts. Its often a mistake made by new comers as no one wants the brakes to fall off but even if the bolts come loose, they shouldn't fall off and the caliper wont either. The bolts will expand with the temperature of the brake assembly, thus tightening. A hard/firm torque will be sufficient. Remember how hard it was to get them undone in the first place they will lock themsleves with heat?

After all that I just found this link with pics:

Braking problem

brake pads souldnt be to tight a fit as they need to back off the disc when the pedal is released. sounds like the pads may be stuck.

were the calipers easy to back off when fitting the pads? as there isnt any adjustment on car calipers that i know of. also are the sliders of the caliper free as these can go very tight.

Removal of brake calipers and pads on 1992 xj6 jaguar

Hi Jasa

Unless you are mechanically competent, I would not advise you carry out this procedure yourself, but leave it to the professionals.

If you are mechanically minded, and competent, the pads are relatively easy to replace, as follows.

Jack up the vehicle and put on stands, if you don´t have access to a hoist?

Remove wheels, and open the hood, put some kitchen roll around the brake fluid reservoir, to catch any excess brake fluid, when you push back the brake caliper pistons, if it´s been overfilled.
On the front brake caliper's, you are best to put in a little lever between pads and disc, and ease back the piston to fully retracted, unless you have a small G clamp which will do the same job when caliper is adrift.

Remove the 2 x 13mm caliper securing bolts and swing off the caliper, and support with a piece of wire, don´t just let it dangle on the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and sensor wire, check the caliper piston dust cover for splits, and clean caliper, housing, etc, and disc, with brake cleaner.

Fit the new brake pads to the caliper, and refit with 2 new securing bolts with blue lock tite, (normally supplied with the B/Pads.)

The rear caliper´s are pretty much the same as the front, although you can just undo the top bolt and swing the caliper back, but I usually remove both, for ease of cleaning, and inspection.

After rear caliper´s and pads and sensor wire, and new bolts are fitted, pump the brake pedal with the ignition on, and just run around, and check there are no leaks from the caliper pistons.
Check the fluid level, and lower with suction syringe if necessary.

By the way, 1. When did you last change your brake fluid ?
2. Adjust your front wheel bearings end float ?

You could do this now before you fit the wheels.?

Let me know if you wish the details for that too ?

Good luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please !


Then refit wheels, drop down the car,

Front brake pad replacement

black caliper and black caliper bracket = ATE (Teves), the other color is Akebono. To replace pads, use a screwdriver to stick into slot to pry caliper open a bit. Remove 2 caliper pins (under plastic caps on rubber caliper boots.) Lift caliper from rotor. Remove old pads. Wipe caliper anti-squeak onto back of new pads, and place pads into caliper. Replace caliper onto rotor and bracket. Insert pins and tighten securely (you can lubricate the pins) Replace plastic boot covers. Install wheels. Lower vehicle.
