If you look at the assembly you will see 2 bolts covered in rubber boots. those hold the brake pads in place and connect to the frame of the brake caliper. the other two connect the caliper frame to the truck hub . this all needs to come off to do what you suggest

How to change front disc brake pads on 2000 Mazda Bravo B2500

jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible

How do I replace the front brake pads on my 2009 Mazda 6 2 litre? Can I do it myself?

Step 1 Park the Mazda 6 on a flat surface. Put the emergency brake on and put wedges behind the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Using a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool, drain two thirds of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Remove the wheel.
  • Step 2 Remove the bolts attached to the brake pipe. Remove the bolt cap attached to the caliper top. Swing the caliper, pivoting it downwards. Suspend the caliper from the frame using mechanics wire. Remove the M-springs, the pads and the shims.
  • Step 3 Press the caliper pistons back into the cylinders. Install the brake pads. Lubricate the exterior of the pads using anti-squeal. Install the shims. Install the M-Springs. Reinstall the caliper. Using a torque wrench torque the bolt to 36 to 39-ft. lbs. Install the cap.
  • Step 4 Reinstall the wheels. Add brake fluid to the master cylinder. Bleed the brakes. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery. Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times to seat the brake pads. Test drive the Mazda 6 at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.I hope this helps you and please have a merry xmas

      • Caliper mounting bracket from the steering knuckle assembly
      • Brake pads from the caliper mounting bracket
      • Clips from the inside ends of the caliper mounting bracket and discard
    To install:
    1. Install or connect the following:
      • Clips to the inside ends of the caliper mounting bracket
      • Brake pads to the caliper mounting bracket
      • Inner pad (1 wear indicator)
      • Outer pad (2 wear indicators)

    86 Toyota P/U disc brakes, 2 wheel drive..what

    You need to use a large "C Clamp" to compress the caliper piston back into the cylinder. This is the normal way since there is no "return" mechanism other than "lack of hydraulic pressure".
    The brake fluid will back up into the master cylinder reservoir, so remove some of the fluid.
    Just two bolts hold the floating caliper in place.

    How do i change both front and rear brake pads on a 2004 mazda rx8?

    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.
    The rear brakes on the rx8 are a bit different than most 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.

    My 90 b2200 has been parked for a while...i had it aligned 5k mi ago before driving it cross country...not it pulls to the right rather hard, and when start to move it seems like the brake is still on..i...

    sounds like you have a frozen brake caliper, lift right wheel off ground and remove tire, try to spin disk if you cannot then u need to remove caliper try using a c-clamp and compress inner pad and see if piston will move inward if yes check for leak and clean retry and if still doesn't work or cannot move piston in replace caliper. It most likely has rusted and seized from long term sitting.
