Check and make sure calipers are not sticking, this will wear brakes pretty fast. check the hoses to the calipers for restrictions on inside or a collapsed hose. you said you put new calipers on so it may just be the rubber hoses causeing this.

Driver's side front brake became suddenly stuck ( and mildly smoking) on my 1991 ford aerostar xl that has been excellently maintained. The 'Rear Anti-Lock' brake light came on yesterday and stayed on, and...


yes baby it to him and replace both calipers and rotors as they will work better with your new brake pads. Do Not Do a half a job when it comes to brakes. its your family you are dealing with. calipers are cheap rotors are cheaper and pads are also cheap. its 3 hours labour to do a complete front brake job and rear brakes take 2 hours. with new shoes turn drums replace wheel cylinders and new rear brake hardware price in Canadian for front brakes under 400 price for rear under 250 American parts prices slightly different but labour times the same

If the caliper is not defective, it could be the rubber flex hose going to the caliper.

I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get clean


The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards also...my second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.

HOW DO I REPLACE ROTARS


Take off the brake caliper and hang it out of the way (don't let it dangle by the rubber brake line). Then take off the caliper bracket, and the rotors should then be free.

Steps to replacing rear brake pads


A special tool is required to compress the caliper piston on the rear brakes-don't use a C-clamp on the piston.
Raise the vehicle and remove the tire. The rear calipers have only one guide pin. Remove this pin and raise the caliper. Remove the old brake pads. Using the special tool compress the caliper piston-the piston will have one or two slots on it. These slots must in the correct position to remount the caliper. Install the new brake pads and slide the caliper back over the rotor and replace the guide pin. If the caliper doesn't slide over the rotor you'll need to reset the slots on the piston. Replace the tires and you're ready to go.

Do you have to put never siege or grease on the sliding parts of the caliper when you replace the rear pads on a 2004 buick lasbre?


A little bit of grease is good--just a film is enough. Make sure the caliper can move in and out in the bracket. Any more questions, please let us know.

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the front passenger side brake locks when driven for a while.


I just got a 1999 lincoln myself. And the front brakes locked up on it. Try to take off and it spit and sputter's. And floats around when try to stop. I replaced both brake calipers, pads, and one of the rotars. It had grooves wore in it. And changed the rubber hose going to the caliper. That is what the problem actually was. I noticed that the other side had already been changed beforre. But I wasn't sure. The caliper was rusted up where it got hot from rubbing. And it is posible for them to stick. Autozone $38 ea for calipers rebuilt. 40 for the pads. 20 for the rotar. And 35 for the hose. Now it drives like a dream.

How to change brake pads on a buick century?


Front brake pads are usually easy to do. Take only one side apart at a time. You will need a big C clamp along with other basic hand tools. After jacking the car up and using the proper safety stands remove the wheels. If you turn the steering wheel so you can get to the back of the brake calipers easier.  Now remove the two bolts that hold the calipers to the back of the wheel spindle and carefully take the calipers off. Remove the old pads, pay attention to what pad went where. Take the C clamp of slowly squeeze the piston the caliper in. Remove and replace the rotor at this time. Put the new pads in the calipers and replace the caliper and wheel. Make sure all bolts are tighten! Before trying to drive vehicle make sure you press the brake pedal many times. I hope this helps.

How to change front brake pads


its simple, each brake caliper has two screws loosen the top bolt then take out the bottom one causing the caliper to rise, take out the old brake pads, be careful when installing the new ones to not touch the pads with your hands cause any kind of dirt can throw off the new pads while the calipers are up check the rotars to see how badly damage they are if they are really scratched or not, once placing the new pads into place close the calipers and re tighten the screws into place.

2000 Silvrado z71 4wd Brake Pad Replacement


crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.
