If it's about replacing the pads - easy, 15 minutes per wheel. If it's about replacing the disks - relatively easy, but it's a long job, around 1 hour per wheel, the bulk of it being dedicated for the removal and refitting of the calliper.

    yes it was about the pads i havent changed brakes on this type car when i looked in the box i see some clips and something that looks like liquid gunpowder.

  • Azrael SRL Jul 10, 2010

    That liquid is just the dust from the worn pads, brush it away before working on them, it's toxic. To remove the pads just use a pair of levers to loosen them from the disk / push the piston back in the calliper, remove the safety pins that secure the pads and pop them out.

    i bought ceramic brake pads for my car and when i looked inthe box of new pads thats where i see the new clips?and a small bag of liquid gunpowder?or what ever it is what do i do with stuff in the bag when replacing the new pads?

  • Azrael SRL Jul 10, 2010

    That is the lubricant that you pun on the back of the pad to stop it squeaking when pressed by the piston - not necessary if you clean your brake calipers regularly.

    And you should use the new clips that came with the set of pads, they are stronger than the original ones.

Changed front brake lining wear sensor now i have no front brakes

the sensor has nothing to do with the brakes other than turnig on the brake warning. i suspect you changed the brake pads also.take wheels off and recheck. if you opened a brake bleeder then air may be in system, bleed brakes. a poor machine job on the rotors will cause no grab also
