Put the caliper back onto the rotor and use a tire iron to prise it back whilst a mate opens the bleed valve(remember to close the valve before releasing pressure on the iron.

How to change rear brakes on 2003 PT Cruiser


loosen the tire lugs while tire on the ground, jack up the vehicle and support it with a jack stand, secure vehicle to prevent rolling and make sure it is in park with the engine off. now finish up loosening the lug nuts and take off the wheel. now open the brake oil filler cap, if it is a disc brake set up get a pry bar or large flat head screw driver and insert it between the brake disc and the rotor and pry it loose to push the brake caliber piston back in its seated position now remove the screws that hold the caliber normaly 2 screws. now clean the caliber with cleaner you might have to push the piston back more using a c-clamp or a large channel lock or you can buy a tool that you twist to seat the piston back into the caliber. mount the new disc pads match them to the old ones re position the caliber into its place and re install the 2 mounting bolts, do the same for the other side and once done get in the car and pump the brake peddle to push the piston against the disc pads mount the wheels and tighten the lug nuts remove jack stand and lower the vehicle, check your brake fluid level and top it off if needed secure oil cap get into the vehicle start it and pump brakes again for several times until it feels hard. now you can take it on a test drive. drive about 20 mph for a several yards come to a complete stop do that for about 8 times to set the brake pads, buy brake pads with life time warranty and save the box and the receipt when you are ready to change them again take them off and put them in the box and take them to be exchanged you can buy a book at the auto parts place they list the complete instruction for disc brakes and brake shoe. for brake shoes we recommend you read the book as there are too many little parts to deal with

Brake pads


The part that is hitting it is the brake caliber. The piston needs to be pushed back in. Get a 4-inch clamp and a piece of wood and put the wood over caliber, then clamp and tighten and push the piston back in.

Caliber dont know how to install it back


You need a C-clamp to push the piston back in.

You better hope no fluid came out, that looks like it came out to far, if fluid came out it might need to be bleed.

Take the cover off the brake fluid reservoir and using the C-clamp push the piston back down, be careful not to damage the piston.

Then replace the cover on the reservoir.

Replacing break pads on 2000 tarus


Remove & Replace the Brake Pads
  • Loosen lug nuts from the front wheels with the ratchet and socket, but do not remove them.
  • Raise the front of the vehicle using the floor jack and secure it with jack stands.
  • Remove the lug nuts from the wheels and pull the wheels from the vehicle.
  • Look on the rear of the brake caliper and locate the caliper bolts, one upper and one lower.
  • Loosen and remove the upper and lower caliper bolts using the ratchet and socket.
  • Pull the caliper from the brake assembly, exposing the brake pads, and hang the caliper from a suspension component, using the bungee strap. Do not allow the caliper to hang by its hose, as this may cause damage.
  • Grasp the inner and outer brake pads and pull them from the brake assembly. Take note of how they were positioned, as the new brake pads must be placed in the same fashion.
  • Place the new brake pads on the brake assembly in the same position the old ones were.
  • Position the c-clamp over the caliper so the screw portion is contacting the the caliper's piston--the metal cylindrical object inside the caliper--and the fixed portion of the clamp is contacting the rear of the caliper.
  • Tighten the c-clamp until the caliper's piston is fully pressed into the calipers body. The top of the piston is even with the caliper body when fully pressed in.
  • Loosen the c-clamp and remove it from the caliper.
  • Place the caliper over the new brake pads and hand-tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts.
  • Tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts to 26-foot pounds, using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Repeat Steps 4 through 13 for the brake pads on the other side of the vehicle.
  • Place the wheels back on the vehicle and hand-tighten the lug nuts.
  • Remove the jack stands from under the vehicle and gently lower it to the ground.
  • Tighten the lug nuts to 100-foot pounds using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Press and release the brake pedal repeatedly until it feels firm.

How to change 2001 crown victoria brake pads


Jack up car, remove the wheels, take out the two retaing bolts on the brake caliber, slide caliber up off brake disc, remove old brake pad, use a C-Clamp or big pair of Channel locks to compress the piston in to the brake caliber, Insert new brake pads onto caliber, slide brake caliber back over brake disc, reinstall the 2 retaining bolts. put tire back on. Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

How do you remove the front disc brakes?


To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
1. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
2. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
3.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
4. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
5.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
6.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
7.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
8. Install your new brake pads .
9. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....

How do I get the brake caliper hydrolic sleeve to go back in far enough for the caliper to fit back over the new brake pads?


Using the inside pad, remove the clip from the back of the pad. Place the pad back against the caliper in its original position and 524e65b.jpgusing a 7" C-clamp open the clamp to fit over the caliper and brake pad in the center. Then turning the screw end of the clamp slowly push the caliper back. Watch that it's going in evenly. Once the pad touched the caliper you are done. Remove the C Clamp and old pad a install you new pads.

Use a "C" clamp. Put the threaded part inside the piston, and the other part behind, and screw it till it is flush. Or do you mean you tried that, and it just won't move?
