My breaks wore off so i got new ones, the shape fits but however when you try to put the caliper back into its place it would not fit over the rhoder because the new break pads are too thick. PS: the cylinder that pushes the breaks together is clamped all the way in with the "C clamp" and the inner break pad fits fine its the outer one that doesn't fit over the rhoder. The thickness of new pads is 0.6 of an inch. Old pads are completely worn off if you use them you hear metal on metal clincking but only they seem to fit because rhoder doesn't adjust on the outer side. How do I go about solving this problem?

Take off the wheels. Make sure that the car is supported safely whith blocks or stands.
Put a wheel nut back on to hold the discs in place.
Undo the two bolts holding the calipers to the axle, lift of the calipers. Do not take off the hoses. Check the discs for wear, they may need resurfacing.Spread the calipers, you can buy a tool for that or you can use a clamp.
remove the pads and fit the new ones. Reverse the proceedures.
HI, Usually one would use a "C" clamp to squeeze the piston flush with the caliper for the clearance needed. If you do not have access to a "C" clamp you can use the old brake pad as a cushion and pry with a crow bar or a large screw driver, the piston backwards for clearance. Try and pry evenly as not to **** the piston in the caliper. I hope this may have helped you. Wayne
Not hard at all. Just lift car, take wheel off. Spot the Caliper. Take the two guide pins (bolts) out and slide the caliper off the pads. Pull both old pads off and replace them with the new ones. Place brake grease on the outside of the pads where the calipers push on them or they will squeek badly. Use a C-clamp or a break tool (that you can borrow from AutoZone) to push the caliper piston back in so it will fit over the new pads (while doing this, watch the break fluid resivoir as you may need to take some out so it does not overfill). Then slide the caliper back over the pads. Place some grease on the guide pins and then put them back in. Then put the wheel back on.
Make sure you start the car and pump the breaks until you feel them grab again or you won't have breaks until they do.

On my bonnevile, a c clamp wouldn't work. Online, it identified the calipers need to be turned back in. On the front side, there should be grooves in the center of the caliper that you can turn to retract. to allow enough space for it to go back on.
You will need a jack and 2 jack stands to get the front wheels off the ground (break the lug nuts loose before lifting) and support the vehicle.
You will need the lug nut wrench (or a 1/2 inch breaker bar and 21 MM socket) to remove the wheel.
You will need a 14 MM wrench to remove the caliper bolts and possibly a flat head screwdriver to pry the caliper off of the pads if it is difficult.
You will need a big pair of channel lock pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper bore to allow room for the new pads.
You may need a hammer to hit the rotors to break them loose if they are rusted into place on the hub- a couple good shots should break them free if needed.
You will also need a wire brush and some good brake grease (available at any parts store). You will want to see any place that the pads contact a stationary surface and clean this area and apply a film of the grease to these points to prevent binding and uneven pad wear.
Hope this is helpful!!
