No, there is a left and right. when installed, the bleeder valve must be above the flex line connection in order to bleed the air out of the system. if you switch sides, that will not be the case, and you will not be able to bleed the brakes. good luck!

Interchangeable parts


Yes, as the only difference i see, is that the 2000 models have dual piston calipers, stiffer springs, larger rear spring spacers, and different gear ratios. You might have to swap your gears out of the 2000 into the 97, and use your 2000 springs if you want to retain your original ridehight, I think the calipers are interchangeable directly.

Will 1997 dogde ram 1/2 ton 4x4 parts interchange with a 2000 dogde ram 1/2 ton 4x4


Yes, they will interchange, although you might run into different brake calipers, and different gear ratios. 2000 models have stiffer springs, and double piston brake calipers, but you could use your old springs to retain your old ride height, Im sure with your old parts, and newer parts, you shouldn't have any problems mix and matching what you need. Everything will bolt right up, even if you have to use your old calipers on the newer fron axle or vice versa. Im 98% sure you won't have any problems swapping in 2000 year parts to your 1997 year truck.

How can i compress the caliper piston back of audi a6 2000 2.8l awd what kind of tools i need . Vise grip is not working.


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also.
But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!

For front brake pads. You should buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!!

Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

Rear brake caliper will not spread open. trying to change brake pads


The front calipers compress in but the rears screw in - you need a caliper piston tool. Order a good one from www.GermanAutoParts.com - the garbage ones at the parts stores don't fit right and are a pain to use on an A4.

How to change front break pads A4 2000 and what type/ make of pads do i need


I have the same car 2000 Audi A4. I recommend you "TRW" brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper. 3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease). 4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier. 5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston. 6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary! 7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing. 8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward). 9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier. 10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm. 11. Install both caps. 12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!! Please Rate my Response! Thanks!

Audi s4 rear caliper


Are you sure that the caliper piston is the type that rotates to retract, or is it possibly the type that you have to compress with a C-clamp? If you know for a fact that it is supposed to rotate to retract, then it sounds like your caliper will need replacing. If your brake pads get too low, the metal plate that the pad is secured to will begin to heat up from the friction between the rotor and the plate, causing your caliper to heat up and further causing the piston to expand and seize up. Calipers and heat just don't agree. Anyways, if it won't compress, that's what has happened. The good news is that, although you drive an Audi, brake calipers are usually rather inexpensive, so don't be too upset if you end up replacing it. One word of advise that I always stress though: If there is two of anything on a vehicle, I'll never replace one without replacing the other...just a standard I won't budge on. Not to mention, it's nice to have already done the preventative maintenance and trust me...you'll appreciate your rear calipers being balanced too. Hope this helps! Have a great day!
