Hydraulic brakes stoped working after blown steering seel? Need help


If there's no pressure on your brake pedal it's due to a failure somewhere in the braking system. I can't see any connection between a steering problem and a braking problem.

Most cars have a split-circuit braking system. That is, the front left wheel is on the same line as the rear right wheel. The front right wheel is on the same line as the rear left wheel.

This is just a safety feature: If one brake line loses pressure, the other line still works and you retain 50% of your braking power.

check the level of your brake fluid. If the level has dropped it indicates a leak somewhere. Though be aware that it is possible NOT to lose brake fluid whilst having soft brakes..

Brake pressure is lost due to either a faulty brake master cylinder or a leak at one of the wheels.

Remove each tyre in turn and inspect the piston on the brake calliper. If there's slight wetness caused by brake fluid that indicates a seal (around the brake piston) has failed and is drawing in air.

There's no need to replace a calliper - overhaul kits are available.

Now I've changed rubber brake hose and hard line to the T on rear axle, bled system and left rear brake still drags. All new pads and rotors all around and new calipers in rear. And great pedal.


the callipers actually slide on two pins that are part of the mount to the axle. this sliding action allows the callipers to centralize over the rotor disc
if you are experiencing a dragging brake then remove the pads and see if you can slide the calliper on those pins
if not you will have to remove the pins and clean the rust and gunk out of the holes in the calliper
they do rust up and seize which gives dragging brakes especially after fitting new pads.

How to replace rear brake pads and rotors?


Hi Danny jack up the car and use axel stands or blocks for safety remove wheels and open the calliper s. if the park brake cable is attached to the back of the calliper you will need a brake wind back tool. If not the pistons on the calliper should push back to make room for the new pads. Next remove the calliper brackets and then the rotors and reassemble in reverse order. Before you let the car back down pump the brake until its hard then turn the wheel by hand to see that it is free. After a road test jack it up again and make sure the wheels are still free. Have fun. Regards Jim...

2006 ford focus rear brakes


If the piston is stuck out this is due to a seized calliper however a temp Fix is to turn the piston clockwise to force it back in as rear callipers are self releasing so they need to be turned clockwise they will not go stright back without turning. This is due by broken calliper seals although you will temp fix it, It's best to either replace calliper or buy a calliper fixing kit which includes all the seals that need replacing.
Also You will need to Empty the brake fluid out to make it easier to push the piston in it, Then you will need to bleed the whole brake system once fitted back.

Can not get new brake pads on the rear of 172 clio, they are the correct pads too!! 53 plate


The rear callipers contain the hand brake mechanism, they need to be wound back to install the new pads, have a look in your local car part suppliers/accessory shop, the correct tool is about £10 or so. You can wind it back with a screw driver and a "G" clamp, they need to be wound clockwise when you look at the piston through the calliper frame, use a large screwdriver in the notches in the piston to turn it, sometimes the screwdriver needs to be sideways, this will be fiddly as you can usually onlt turn 1/4 of a turn at a time, squeeze the piston back with the clamp after a turn or so and repeat untill the piston is back enough to allow the pads in.

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike

01 Tiburon


Hello Hopeisananch

My favourite car (I have one) and I hope a pleasure to assist.

The Tiburon has brake pads all round and not brake shoes at the back with pads at the front like many other cars.

From your description I would suggest that the rear brake pads and/or callipers are responsible.

I would recommend replacing the rear pads as they may have become very worn over time causing them to rattle against the wheel disc.
The brake callipers are pretty simple to remove once the wheel is off. You will need to jack the car up and remove the lid from the brake fluid reservoir which can be found under the hood.
The calliper is secured by two bolts on each side, they can be released and then pull away the calliper from the wheel assembly making sure to support it whilst working on the pads so as not to stretch the brake pipe.
You will also need to push back the calliper piston using a calliper tool or block of wood. This is to make way for the new thicker brake pads.
The new pads can be replaced ensuring that you use copper grease where the brake pad arms rest inside the calliper but ****do not get copper grease ****onto the surface of the new brake pads or wheel disc.
You can then reassemble the calliper over the new pads and re-bolt tightly into place. You should use a torque wrench to the specified setting however a good solid hand tightening should be fine.
Then replace the wheel and be sure to replace the brake fluid reservoir cap.

Pads themselves are pretty cheap. You can also of course get a mechanic to do the work for you if you are unsure of the proceedure as your safety is after all paramount.

I myself would avoid main dealer charges for this type of work as they can be very expensive.
You may also find a tyre dealer in your area may offer you a free brake inspection and be able to complete the work at reasonable cost.
