Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

I removed the rotor and brake pads. but when going to change the pads I can not get the piston to go back far enough to put the new ones in. How do you get the piston to push back in order to put the brake...


You will have to use a c-clamp or brake piston compressing tool to get that piston back in, while you have the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir cap off.

Soft brake peddle on 1994 chevy 3/4ton truck is it the back adjuster?


You might have a leak in one of your brake lines i would look at all of the lines for a leak look at the brake drums for fluid driping out of the bottom if you dont find a leak it may be time for a brake job . a soft peddel means you have air in your system.From a leak or wore out pads or shoes or a leaking wheel cylender from wore out rear shoes . watch your master cylender to see if its low on fluid.

Toyota tercel 1996;


take tire off and remove caliper take the pads out then take a large c clamp with a flat piece of steel shape closely to one of the pads do not use your pads for this unless u kept one of the old ones which will work great place the piece of metal across the round center then place the clamp head behind the caliper so its directly in line with the metal plate centered over the round cylinder and then clamp down slowly by turning clamp handle make sure you stay centered when it flattens out set it aside and be very carefull of brake lines next see if wheel cylinder turns also shake it to check for looseness remember if its front wheel drlve the transmission will have that wheel for its main power and it would seem a little bit harder to turn put the car in nuetral to check spin it should drag some on the training because of all the gears but if its crunching when turning you will need to check the barings if thats not it then theres a problem with training ok after checking those things its time to put it back together remove clamp put pads back on slide it back on and bolt it back on thenput tire back on be sure to pump the brake peddal several times to build fluid back to cylender on brake then check underhood to make sure fluid is at proper hight make sure cap is on brake master cylender then test your brakes if this doesnt help try bleeding the brakes starting with rear passenger side then reardrivers side then front passenger side then drivers side in that order i replaced all my brakes myself and they are working great
