    the master cylinder is the only thing left

  • paul_youn151 Jun 03, 2010

    everything is good now, after the right front brake heated up,i parked it for about an hour and a half then went back and drove it. T he brake didnt get hot at all. Iread thtat after you replace ur front brakes you need to go test them and do not hit your brakes hard jus use them normal. Then park it for an hour and a half. I parked it like they said and it worked.

    THANKS

SOURCE: how to replace brake pads and rotors

Loosen the two bolts that are on both ends of the caliper, until the unit can be lifted away from the rotor,
the unit must not be allowed to hang by the flex line, so you have to use something to hold it in the air.
Now you need to put a c-clamp against the inner brake pad and the outside of the caliper to compress
the piston to its full back position to allow for the new pads,as they are a lot thicker then the pads now.
Once the piston has been compressed back all the way, you can remove the pads, watch how the clips are on the pads and do not hurt the clips, as most times the new pads do not come with these clips,they must be purchased from the dealer. All you do now is put the new pads with clips back in the same way they came out, now the rotor can be pulled off, the tire rim holds the rotor on, and with the caliper off the rotor should come off, could be a little rusty and might have to hit it with a rubber mallet
but should come off. Now you should apply a caliper grease to the slides of the caliper so in the future it does not stick and can slide back and forth freely. Now just put the caliper back on and re tighten the two holding bolts to spec and thats it.

SOURCE: f150 98ford brakes hanging up just changed rotors

brake hoses can fracture on the inside and work as one way valves and hold pressure.thanks to all the dedicated pros who hang calipers by the hoses.
the brake lines and fluid needs to be completely flushed and bled properly,or what happens is water in the system expanding and causing pressure build up.
make sure your brake pedal is retracting all the way up.
i have seen it where ever so slight pressure caused the brakes to drag.

SOURCE: need rear brake pad and rotor replacement

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: noise from rear brakes but pads and rotors are

Did you check the emergency brakes? The rear rotors have drum brakes on the inside. You may have to loosen the adjustment to get the rotor off.

They will try your patience. Even brake shops miss the diagnosis. Hard to very hard to replace the mounting springs.

2002 Ford Excursion 7.3 4x4 rear brakes getting smoking hot. Noticed it on driver side first. Assumed the rotor was sticking, replaced it and the hose. Relaxed pads and found the pads on passenger side...


There are a number of issues that can cause overheating disc brakes. Disc brakes, when released, separate from the disc by the action of the rotor moving between them (since no rotor is perfectly true, there is a small about of wobble and it pushes the pads away from the rotor surface). Things that can cause this to go wrong are:

  1. Caliper pistons that have rust rings that cause sticking. This most often will happen right after or shortly after replacing old, work out pads with new ones. Because the caliper piston was extended out farther with the worn pads, its surface may get rusty. This rust can cause sticking when the piston is pushed back into the bore with the new, thicker pads.
  2. Caliper slide bolts will rust and get sticky, not allowing the caliper to release properly and re-center itself on the rotor. What you often see here is that one pad (inner or outer) is totally worn out and the other seems normal.
  3. Rusty brake lines/caliper internals can cause restrictions in the flow of brake fluid and hold pressure after the brake pedal is released.
It is highly recommended that whenever you change your brake pads, you replace the caliper slide bolts use a new brake hardware kit when reinstalling. The additional cost is almost always saved in longer brake pad life, and fewer complications.

1994 Chevy Cavalier front right brake is locking up every time you step on brake . I already changed that caliber and it is still doing it


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN A CALIBER LOCKS UP: IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE CALIBER BEING BAD. THE CAUSE IS THE RUBBER BRAKE LINE GOING TO THE CALIBER IS BAD INSIDE OF THE RUBBER HOSE. ONCE YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL YOU PUSH FLUID INTO THE CALIBER ONCE YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL THE FLUID DOES NOT ALL RETURN TO THE MASTER CYL. THE HOSE IS OLD AND THE RUBBER IS BUSTED INSIDE OF THE HOSE AND THE FLUID IS STAYING INSIDE OF HOSE AND HOLDING PRESSURE ON THE CALIBER. I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME AND NEEDLESS TO SAY IT COST ME AROUND $500.00 TO HAVE IT FIXED AFTER I REPLACED CALIBER, ROTOR AND BRAKES.

Just changed rear pads and rotors on my 2000 chev blazer..after test driving rear brakes were hot and smoking...brake pads seem to be sticking..are the calipers shot or do I need hoses or both?


  • Well when you looked at the brake pads after your drive were the pads stuck to the rotor?
  • First thing to do is double check your pad and rotor installation.
  • Also check to make sure the right parts were installed.
  • When you pushed back the pistons on your calipers did they flow back nice and smooth? Did they wedge in and get stuck? This would make the pads drag.
  • If you used grease did you get some on the pad by accident? If this is the case it will burn off.

  • How is the car stopping for you? Properly? Do you hear any grinding while driving slow? While driving fast? Over heating rotors will turn a bluish stain. That is when it is really time to be worried.
  • If your brakes are not dragging then give some time for the pads to ware in.
  • If the piston is stuck forcing the pads against the rotor all the time then you need to replace the calipers.
  • Don't forget to bleed the lines afterword.

How to replace brake pads on 2006 oddesey


Raise and secure on stands after breaking loose the lug nuts and parking brake on for front pads.. Remove wheels and spread old pads back to push cylinders back in their bores on calibers to allow for thickness of new pads. Remove the 2 sliding claiber retaining bolts and rotate caliber out of mount and secure with wire, boungie cord, or rope to take weight of caliber brake hose. Remove old pads, install new, and reassemble in reverse order. Lugs on alloy wheel should be torgued to 95 foot lbs. Block front wheels, release parking brake,and do the back ones the same way. After completing, pump brake pedal slowly several times to seat new pads. If you move the MPV without pumping first, you will have no brakes to stop. If brake fluid level is high in master cylinder, you will need to take some out first to make room for returning fluid from caliber pistons being returned to their bores prior to any brake work. Rotors should be replaced or turned if scored or warped to have better clapping of pads to rotor surface.

Front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2


I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.
