SOURCE: 2006 Ford Five Hundred anti-lock brake pad replacement

hi its rare the pads stick to the rotor but obviously this one was welded metal to metal so if the other sides not down to the metal you won,t have the same problem now getting the piston back into the caliper if you don,t have the tool its going to be fiddling but you need to get some pressure on the piston as to shove it back in not to much as you have stated it has to be screwed back in once a pressure has been applied [could try using you c-clamp ] then the slots in the piston insert something that will turn the piston it will locate and start to screw back your going to need pateince as it is fiddling with the correct tool you may need a few attemps but the other side should not be as bad as the piston has not gone past the point of return take your time and check for leaks when you have them all assembled yates210456

SOURCE: how to replace 2004 mazda 6 brake pads

Does the caliper move around if you try to lever it away from the disc? Are all the bolts definitely removed? Often it is just that the pads needs to be pushed back a bit so they will clear the lip on the disc. Try putting a screwdriver on lever bar between the inner pad and the disc and pushing the brake piston back a bit, that may free it up to clear the lip. Check that the caliper slides move freely when you get the caliper off, if not remove and clean / regrease them.

SOURCE: how to adjust caliper for rear brakes on a Mazda Protege Es.

yep, this is what u do. i read that this controls hand break and you need to completely loosen that using hex (3mm) key. BUT, when u tighten it back up, u need to unscrew it about 1/8th, VERY important, or ur pads will be rubbing way too much against the rotor. I actually had to do about 1/2 the turn to make the wheel spin w/out too much pressure.

Mazda drifter 2.5 diesel pulls left when brakeing


it could be that the right side caliper is stuck in the open condition. there is something blocking the brake fluid to the caliper or the piston is defective and is stopped mechanicly. jack up and block truck remove front tires, with a helper have them push on the brakes while you observe the calipers if the left piston moves and the right doesn't then you have found the problem. now trouble shoot unscrew the bleeder valve and have assistant push on the brakes. If fluid comes out then it is the caliper. If no fluid then work your way back toward the master cylinder at every connection. sometimes the rubber hoses that go to the caliper rot from the inside out causing a no fluid getting thru problem. hope this helps

Removing the disc brake caliper and rotor on a 1993 Mazda protege if it is stuck


To replace the lug nut studs you will indeed have to remove the brake caliper, brake rotor, and hub nut, then the hub.

If you post an email (get a temp address if you like from Hotmail) I will send you a workshop manual.

How do you change front brake pads on an Audi A6 2006


How to change front brake pads & rotors (brake disc) on 2006 Audi A6:

Atention!!!
Don't disconnect any brake line from caliper!
Don't disconnect any ABS sensor!
For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:

1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Remove brake carrier from wheel bearing housing (two ribbed bolts). 125 Nm
7. Remove brake disc from wheel hub.
8. Install brake carrier on wheel bearing housing. Tightening torque for two ribbed bolts = 125 Nm.
9. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
10. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
11. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
12. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
13. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
14. Install both caps.
15. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

Are there any special tools needed to change the brakes on a 2006 toyota sienna? Standard two bolts that hold it on?


You will probably not need anything other than a metric socket wrench set.

Many Toyota models have disc brake calipers that will flip up or down when you remove one of the two bolts that hold the calipers on. I am not sure of the setup on the Sienna.

When you remove either the upper or lower bolt and move the caliper, you can then remove the old pads. Also, you will need to push the piston(s) back into their cylinders to give you enough space to install the new pads. A large C clamp will usually suffice to push in the pistons.

I assume that you are talking about the front (disc) brakes. Some autos still have drum brakes on the rear, and those are a different story. They require several specialty tools to remove and replace the shoes.

How to replace the rear brakes for mazda 5 2007, if there is step by step procedure it will be appreciated


This should be a disc brake setup in the rear, you will need a special tool to push the piston back into the caliper, they do not push in like the old style calipers, they actually have to be turned while being pushed in. You may be able to find the tool at the local parts store. Just tell them you need the tool for the rear brake calipers for your vehicle. Hope this helps

Rear disc brakes


most rear calipers now have the parking brake built inside, you will need a special tool and turn the piston clockwise until it is seated all the way down. Adjust brakes by hitting the brake pedal and pulling the parking brake severl times
