Check you master cylinder, It is probably is the cause and needs rebuild/ replacement. Also check for vacuum line leaks in and about the vacuum booster canister. Bleed the brake lines again to be sure...

My car has 2 problems. I don't know if they are related. First I had "service engine " light on, test said "misfire cylinder 3" all spark plugs were change back on July 2010, 2 weeks...


You need to go to a differant mechanic sounds like he has no idea what he is doing.You should never have to change spark plugs three times in 6 months.But the brake problem is not related to the SEL light and I dont think the installed your brakes properly if the are worn out that fast also.

We are changing back disk brakes. How do you get the caliper to go back inside for the new brakes to fit?


the piston needs to be turned and pushed at the same time. There are several different tools for this.

This one works the best but is also more expensive.

This one is very cheap and may work. Personally not worth it to me.

These will lock into the slots in the piston. Then turn the piston while applying pressure. Because the E-brake is built into the caliper the piston has a mechanism that allows it to ratchet out. Turning the piston while pushing it in will release the ratchet mechanism and allow to piston to be pushed back into the caliper.

Brakes problem 1996 Toyota 4Runner 6 cyl Four


When you said, the bleed valve had to be loosed before the caliper would release, (caliper is already replaced), then we know there was a lot of preasure in the braking lines backed up some where,
and every time the brakes are applied to compress the the caliper to stop your truck,
the preasure would not release,
This
Is a clear indication that the Flexible Rubber Brake Hose attached to the caliper is backed up, clogged, kinked, etc..
That would be the next item in the brake system to check.
Its Bottom Up Disagnostics...
When the hose is off try to slide a strong piece of wire (metal clothes hanger) through the hose..

SOLUTION:
Replace Rubber Brake Line's, on both sides.
I reccomend Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line.

Here is a video that kinda shows corrosion in a rubber hose.
Also check out other videos on youtube.

2006 Mustang rear break caliper piston will not compress/retract to allow new brake pads. I broke 2 c-clamps trying.


Hi Alberts73,
The caliper piston has to be turned clockwise as it is compressed. If not,it will not retract. This will allow the park brake to reset. If you have only pressed the caliper in with a "C" clamp,you may have damaged the mechanism inside the caliper. If this has happened,you will need to replace them.The OTC #206-026 is the tool for turning the caliper back into the bore. I hope this helps,if you need more information,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

My 1987 Subaru GL's front brakes are seized and I am not quiet sure how to fix them. And after i get the old ones off, what do I need to do, if anything, to keep them from seizing again?


dont be scared ,they should be seizing again for the next 10 yers even with a low maintenace! the problem that usually appen is that the ruber seal from the piston on caliper ...after a wile cracs ans allow water to sneak between the piston and the piston chamber ,thats why it get seased, dont be whorie it will remain good for a wile ...dont forget to bleed your breaks,ask a friend to sit in the carwith engine runing,ask him to pump the pedal for 5or6 time then keep-it down ,at the same time you will unskrew the bleed srew on the caliper,and let the air escape,close back the screw befor your friend release the pedal,repeat that 2 or 3 time on each side ...(becus most caliper can fit left or right make shure that the bleed screw is on the higher part of caliper ...)

I have changed the master cyinder the calipers the rotors the brake shoes and my brakes still dont work what could it be i have a pontiac g6 2005


You may need to bleed the air out of the break lines, to do this you will need a bleed pipe, some break fluid and some help from someone to help you pump the breaks whilst you bleed them.
If you are unsure on how to do this, please consult a mechanic as a break failure could be something you do not need.

DONT KNOW HOW TO REMOVE THE BREAK CALIBER


To remove the caliper, you need a torx head tool (can't remember exact size) to remove the two slide pin bolts.(inside the two small rubber boots at each end of caliper) After getting them loose, remove the brake hose, then remove bolts and caliper. (don't loose the two copper washers...if they aren't in the new caliper box you will need them.) Check and see if the caliper retracts easily after it is removed. If it does, the rubber brake hose may have internally failed and is your problem. If piston is very hard to move, get a new caliper. Replace both side brake pads, not just side you are workingon. (recommend both calipers as well but most times it works fine with one.
When replacing, make sure slides are free in calipers and thread pins by hand so that you don't cross thread them. After it's back together bleed front brakes and before moving car step on brake to re-set pistons.

I want to change brake pads on my 03 Mazda Protege SE. What is best way to release hand break cable from caliber, remove caliber? This is the first set of breaks for this vehicle, but I've replaced pads on...


Some calipers have a bolt holding the hand brake mechanism to the body of the caliper. hold the mechanism with a spnner or If yours dont simply lever the mechanism with a bar or long screw driver. Place a pair of lock pliers/ mole grips on the cable(not too tight or you'll fray/damage the cable) then remove the cable from the caliper. When you get the pads out use a screw driver or wind back tool to reset the caliper travel or you will damage the caliper or lose the hand brake altogether.

Problem with break caliber and pedal and rotor 99 corolla


you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master cylinder....in other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help
