Most likely you have to replace your rubber hose that goes from the chassis to the caliper.

Remove two bolts holding caliper, pull caliper off rotor disc and bracket, remove pads, place a used pad in front of caliper piston, use a c clamp to push caliper piston in caliper, remove c clamp and old pad, hang caliper up, remove 2 bolts holding caliper bracket, remove bracket, remove rotor, install new rotor, install caliper bracket, install new pads, install caliper, repeat this on other side, put cap back on brake fluid tank, remove bleeder fittings and keep pressing brake pedal until an even flow of brake fluid sprays out.

I have a 2000 chevy silverado, the front left brakes keep getting stuck and i just change caliper for the second time so i know its not that.


It may be a bad rubber brake line that connects to that caliper, preventing brake fluid from exiting the caliper. Older rubber brake lines can collapse internally and prevent fluid passing through. If the rubber feels spongy, it needs replacing.

I have a 2004 Mazda MPV with some wierd brake issues. I found what appeared to be a bad caliper on front passenger side, and replaced with a new one, yet this same wheel continues to seize up. What is...


If the caliper is seizing and it is not the caliper it is the module that controls how the brake fluid is distributed. I don't have my book in front of me at the moment but when you look under teh hood on teh drivers side you will see a block that has the brake lines coming out of it. That is part of teh ABS system is one is installed and is a master brake control hub if it ABS isn't installed. being that new I would assume it was equipped with ABS. There are a couple of ways you can test if this is teh problem. If I remember correctly the MPV brakes with all 4 brakes, that means you can, as a temp test, switch the lines to see if the caliper problem changes to the different caliper. If it does then you know for a fact it is that unit and not the caliper. Also, something to consider, the caliper that is locking maybe locking because the problem is actually the caliper on the opposite side. If the caliper on the left front is stuck in the open position, on occasion that will cause too much fluid pressure to the right front giving you the impression the problem is the right side and it isn't. This is rare but certainly a possibility. As a general rule you should always replace Calipers in pairs. If you replace the right front you should replace the left front, same with the rear calipers.

Need to know how to change brakes rotors and calibers on 1996 gmc jimmy


Hi Friend:

#1) Break Loose your Lug Nuts,Just A Little don't Take-them off yet.

#2) Jack Front end off the Ground,Support with Good jack stands,Keep Truck in Park and Emergency brake Applied.

#3) Now Take off your Front Wheels-Tires.

#4) Now on the Inside of your brake rotor on each side,there are 2-Caliper mounting bolts. Allen Bolts 3/8" Allen Socket or Allen Wrench.Break the 2-Bolts loose and Remove them.

#5) Now after the Caliper Bolts are removed ,Loosen the Brake Line going to the Calipers using a Flare wrench.You'll need to have a Drain Pan handy to Catch the Brake Fluid.

#6) Now you'll need a C Clamp ,to compress the caliper piston back in the Caliper. NOTE: before you compress the Caliper pistons ,take off the master cylinder cover and using a suction bulb remove about 1/2 of the fluid from the Front Resevoir.the larger of the two.

#7) Now placing the C-Clamp over the Caliper housing turn it clockwise to compress the Piston all the way in.

#8) now you can remove your caliper and the pads,same for Both Sides. AND remove your Rotors they are held on by the Calipers and your Lug-Nuts.It Should come right off ,if its a little rusted and Stubborn take a Plastic Headed Hammer and Tap it all around the Old Rotor.Until it comes off.

#9) Now Slide your new Rotors on the HUB and over the lug nuts.

#10) Get your new caliper Making sure you have the Correct Caliper its Marked Left or Right Sides. It will only work on the Side its made for.

#11) Now put your Anti Rattel Clips on the Correct Sides(Inside) that fit into the New Caiper Piston.also use some brake lube on the back on the new brake pads where they touch the caiper housing.

#12) With both pads in the Caliper Slide the Caliper over your New Rotor. This is for both sides.

#13) Put your brake line back on using the new brass washers that came with your rotors/or Caipers.

#14) Now Put your Caliper Mounting bolts in and tighten up to 38 Foot Lbs.

#15) When you have both sides done Fill up your master Cylinder about a 1/4 " from top.

16) Now you'll need to bleed them ,Get a Friend and have them Slowly push the brake pedal down,after he says its down you open the bleeder valve until fluid and air come out==Now tighten it back before your friend raises his foot up off the pedal.During bleeding keep checking your Master Cylinder to keep it full of fluid.

#17) Start your bleeding from the Right Rear to Left Rear to Right Front and Last Left Front. Always bleed from the farthest brake or Wheel from the Master Cylinder and work your way to the Master.

#18) After you have No air coming out of the bleeder valve and you do have good clean brake fluid.Your Done Bleeding;You should have a Good tight and High Brake Pedal. NOTE: you DON't start the Truck to bleed the brakes.

#19) Now just Put your Tires back on and Tighten your Lug Nuts and you should have good Brakes.

I'm sure that this will get you good brakes and on the Road Again.

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while plymouth voyager 1998


Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

Front brake pads how to replace? Please if you could give me the correct steps for this particular model,i would appreciate it,1996 mitsi mirage model cj1a engine 4g13


I haven't replaced pads for your car in particular but I have done many disc brakes before. Remove the tire. Remove the front caliper being careful not to pull on the brake line hose too hard. Leave it connected. The caliper should have only two bolts or more attaching it to the hub assy. After you get the caliper off you can remove the pads paying attention to the way they are installed. Before putting the new pads in take a "C" clamp and compress the caliper piston in all the way so the new pads fit. Always only do one side at a time so you can refer to the other side if you get stuck..Hope this helps.

Just put new brake caliper on front driver side


Gravity bleed caliper, just open valve and have a coffee break and close it. Did you buy a loaded caliper with new pads on it? Check the rear wheel cylinders they may be the cause of your mushy pedal. They are cheap too.

Front brake pads for 1997 ford ecscort encore


The binding of the brakes is causing the pads to overheat, which is causing the smoke. You need pull the wheel and check things out. Your caliper must be bad (not releasing). You need to replace the caliper, brake pads, and have the rotor cut (a full service parts store or shop cuts the rotor perfectly smooth on both sides), or replaced (it may be cheaper to just buy a new rotor). You should also always change the pads (and check everything else) on the opposite side. So, if u do the brakes on the driver side front, always do the front pass. side at the same time, likewise if u do rear brakes.
Whenever you do brakes u should also flush out the brake lines (by bleeding the brakes) until the brake fluid flows absolutely clear. Old brake fluid is the #1 reason for caliper failure. I've seen many times people replace brake components w/out changing the brake fluid, only to have the brakes wear out very quickly, or not function properly. good luck! hope this helps> please rate this!couontrycurt0

Caliper stuck?


for an inspection, they have no way to tell the caliper isn't moving without disassembling the brakes. I don't know where he got that from unless he was talking about something else and used the wrong terminology. If the calipers were frozen, you'd know.
