If it is a rear disc brake system, the only special tool would be an allen wrench:

Turn the manual adjustment gear counterclockwise with an Allen wrench to pull the caliper piston inward (turn until it stops).

If it is a drum type brake system...no special tools...just a screwdriver, pliers....

My rear flex line broke on my 2002 mazda protege. How do you repalce the rear flex line?? Also I am doing my brakes on the rear. Do you have to turn a screw at the back to pull back the piston or do you...


changing the flexable hydraulic pipe is self explanatory ,,their is a special tool to rewind the pistons on all rear disk brakes but i use a G clamp ,an assistant is better still then one keeps a steady pressure on the piston with a G clamp and the other winds the piston clockwise with a pair of water pump pliers ,their narrow ? watch the dust seals as they get more or less in .job done not difficult but the special tool is better as it compresses as it winds .and not expensive

Instructions on how to change the rear brakes on a 2002 mazda protege?


Give me a call.
1) I have owned a Mazda protege 5 for the last 4 years
2) I have done 2 complete brake jobs on it
3) I am a braking systems engineer.
4) I know what I am doing. I have done 100's of brake jobs on lots of different vehicles.

Biggest issue with the protege is getting the piston back in.
Look at the back of the caliper.
There is a thin head bolt on the back.
You need to take this off the caliper and reach inside with an allen head (I think it's 5mm). Then turn the set screw in there out a few turns. Then you can push the piston back in with a regular piston push back tool. Dont worry if the set screw comes out. Just thread it back in. But you HAVE to at least start it back in. It is part of the auto-adjust mechanism. After you do your brakes you may notice that your parking brake has A LOT of play. After you work it a few times it will tighten back up just fine.

Clean averything well and grease the slide pins with a good quality waterproof grease. There is special grease for slide pins.

BRAKES ON FRONT 2002 PROTEGE 5 MAZDA


When I change my front brakes, I use a "C" clamp to slowly push the piston back in. (You can get them for a few dollars at Wal-Mart, etc.) Make sure you open the brake fluid reservoir while compressing them, as the fluid level will rise; but don't leave the reservoir open too long, as brake fluid will absorb water from the air.
For the parking brake, I'm not sure. I think the parking brake often works off of the rear brakes, so changing the pads should have helped there. Maybe air in the lines? Do you have any trouble with "soft" or "mushy" brakes when you use them? If so, you might want to bleed the system, to get any air out - it can be dangerous.
