1. Park on a flat and level surface. Apply the parking brake. Secure the vehicle by wedging something behind the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
2. Use a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool to siphon out the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir until it's approximately one third full. You can't reuse the old fluid, so you'll need to dispose of it.
3. Remove the wheel and the caliper guide pin bolts. Lift the caliper away from the rotor. Suspend the caliper from the frame using mechanics wire. Remove the brake pads and retainer spring from the caliper. Compress the caliper piston into the bore.
4. Reinstall the brake pads. Place an anti-squeak product on the outside of the brake pads, making sure not to get any of this on the inside of the brake pads. Reinstall the retainer spring to the caliper. Reinstall the caliper in position on the caliper support bracket. Reinstall the guide pin bolts. Reinstall the wheels.
5. Add brake fluid. Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times.test drive at slow to moderate speeds to ensure worked correctly.

Where is the OIL FILTER for the 2004 Kia Optima?


For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire. I hope this helps.

BRAKE PROBLEM


When was the last time you had brake work done? The most common answers would be you need new brake pads or you need to have the brake system flushed and filled. If these two things have been done recently, you may consider replacing the rotors. It is unlikely that the back brakes are the issue since you do most of your braking with the fronts. Out of curiosity, is the emergency brake light permanently lit on your dash?
