This could be caused by a number of things, but the first, and usually least expensive option is the rubber brake hoses that go from the steel lines to the calipers. Note: you will need new brake fluid after doing this. Remove the brake hoses from both the caliper end and the steel line end. Rinse the inside of the hose with water to push any remaining brake fluid out. Once it's clean, look through the hose into the light. If the inside layers are separated, they need replaced. This will run you $20 to $40 depending on the quality and store. If they are normal looking, let them dry out, and put the lines back on their original places. Refill the brake fluid and bleed the brake lines.

Make sure it is full of brake fluid first. If it is, check for leaks around the clutch master and slave cylinder. The master cylinder is mounted on the firewall below the brake master cylinder and towards the driver side. Follow the line to find the slave cylinder on front of the transmission. If you find no leaks, either the master and/or slave cylinder is bad or the clutch fingers are broken.

The brake lights come on by themselves during the night but turn off when I pullout on the brake pedal


The brake light sending unit under your pedal link sends a signal to the lamps to come on when you depress the pedal. Something is wrong where the pedal meets the unit. Apparently the switch works or the lights would not come on and go off, so either the switch needs to be adjusted to give you more clearance or the the brake pedal return spring is getting weak and not returning the pedal to the full upright position.

Rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding


Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.
