SOURCE: how do i change both front and rear brake pads on

CHANGING FRONT BRAKE PADS
Jack up the car. Take off your tire. Find the bolt on the back of the caliper and take it off. This should release the caliper, pull the caliper off the disc. Now you should be able to take the pad out. Replace the pad. You'll need a special tool to reset the caliper. As the brakes wear down, the caliper gets tighter so the brakes still work. I'm not sure exactly what its called, but you can borrow one from auto zone. Follow the instructions that come with it to reset the caliper. Slide the caliper back over the disc. If it doesn't go on, you need to reset the caliper more. Put the relese bolt back in. Put your tire back on.Drive slowly and test the brakes.
CHANGING THE REAR BRAKE PADS
The rear brakes on the rx8 are a bit different than most setups...be careful! The only way to move the piston back into the caliper is by way of a special allen head bolt that is directly behind the piston, on the back side of the caliper, installed under a 14mm bolt.
You have to remove this bolt to gain access to the allen head. As you loosen the allen head bolt(counter-clockwise), the piston will move back into the caliper.
Installation is pretty typical, again, the allen head bolt being the unusual part. The manual says to tighten this bolt until the pads contact the rotor, then loosen the bolt 1/3rd of a turn, then reinstall the 14mm bolt.

Changed battery in rain have lights engine turns over but no fire


The rx8 has the rotary ankles engine in it, these have porcelain tipped rotors instead of pistols and are prone to wear resulting in them not starting. The car should start with a bump or toe start. This will require an engine strip down and rebuild and should only be carried out by a qualified mechanic. (Mazda recommend rotors be replaced every 25000 miles)

Let me know if this helps

Try first using the ignition key to unlock the system , in case this is locked.

If it is not this, then you can reset the whole system by unplugging battery cables for ten minutes.

Ensure you have your car stereo code if you decide to unplu the battery, as you will be asked for security code when you connect back the battery.

My 2004 mazda rx8 has been steering rough. The wheel is hard to turn and not smooth. I called the dealer and he asked if I checked the steering fluid and I said I thought it was ran by an electric system....


Replace the Positive Battery Cable end. Pay attention to the white wire that has an inline fuse that connects to the battery cable end. My Rx8 was doing the same thing. I replaced the battery cable end and have had no problems since.
