  • To install: Front
  1. Compress the piston of the disc brake caliper.
  2. Install the brake pads and caliper assembly.
  3. Lubricate the guide pin. Tighten the guide pin to 16-23 ft. lbs. (22-31 Nm).

REAR :
  1. Pull out the pad springs and then remove the pads and shims.

To install:

  1. Clean the piston end of the caliper body and the area around the pin holes. Be careful not to get oil on the rotor.
  2. Carefully turn the piston clockwise back into the caliper body (this can be done with a pair of needle nose pliers). Take care not to damage the piston boot.
  3. Coat the pad contact area on the mounting support with a silicone based grease.
A special tool is available to rotate the caliper piston

WARNING

Do not press the piston into the bore as performed on the front disc brakes. Due to the parking brake mechanism, the caliper piston must be turned into the bore.

I took the old rear brake pads off my 2000 chevy blazer and the new ones won't go on. They don't allow enough space to go back on?


YOU HAVE TO COMPRESS THE CALIPER PISTON BACK INTO THE CALIPER USING A C-CLAMP OR SIMILAR TOOL. USE AN OLD PAD TO DO THIS.

How do you get the battery out of a 2006 Chevy Impala LT? We've removed the safety bar, unhooked the connections, taken off the foam padding. Space does not seem large enough to maneuver the battery out....


Remove the two speed nuts that hold the fuse block in place. You will be able to lift the fuse block up and move it out of the way just a enough to lift the end of the battery up and out.

I cant seem to get the calipar back on the new pads


The new pads are much thicker than your old ones, so you need to get a large C-clamp, like a 5" clamp, open it up, put it over the caliper with the top of the clamp on the back of the caliper and with the screw adjustment of the clamp on the piston of the caliper. Tighten the clamp slowly and evenly, as you may have to move it from side to side of the piston to keep the piston even as it goes back into the caliper. Go back till it is flush with the caliper housing, then you can release the clamp, and the claiper will fit over the new pads. But now remember, you will have to pump the brake pedal several times when finished in order to close the piston back tight to the pads. This can be done with the car running or shut off. The pedal will feel soft and go right to the floor, but after you pump them several times, it will get hard again. Good Luck.

Back wheels have locked up


Check the calipers for sticking, also check the lever where the e-brake cable connects to and makes sure the lever operates smoothly. You may need an assistant to operate the e-brake.

Just taken the old brake pads off the car and the pistons wont move in order to get the new pads on


With the new pads in place, loosen the bleeder valve a few turns while applying pressure to the pads. A small amount of brake fluid will likely spray out as the pads and pistons move, so have a pan or a rag ready. Once the pads are flush with the edges of the caliper, retighten the valve - making sure that the pads don't move.

Trying to fit new pads to vw touran rear axle and have pushed piston back enough to get it off but cant get it back in any further to fit it over new pads and disk, wont fully retract or cant get it to ?


Try removing the brake reservoir cap under the hood where you fill the brake fluid up. This will release some pressure also use a c-clamp if you haven't already to push the piston.

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.

Changing the rear brake pads on 91 mu


Chalk the front wheels, car is on jackstands i hope, release the handbrake, use the old pad with a c- clamp to compress the pistion on the caliper, install new pads. may have to take the cap off the master cylinder, if none of this works, open the bleeder valve, and compress the piston, rebleed the caliper.
