You need to retract the caliper piston. There is a tool sold at the autoparts store specially designed for that job. It costs about $6 and it will make the job very simple. If you have a large "C" clamp, you can use it instead, just place one of the old pads on top of the cylinder and compress it, just make sure not to rip the rubber boot.
Good Luck!!

You must use a c-clamp or a vice to compress the cylinder. The circle cylinder must be pushed all the way down.

In replacing front brake pads, I can't get master cylinder to go back far enough to allow room for rotor. Have tried using c clamp to force it back but it will not budge? HELP!


This is going to depend on the make/model/year of your car. With some, you need a special tool to force the cylinder in the caliper back.

Tip

Changing brake pads and or rotors


When changing pads or rotors the brake plunger must be forced back to make room for the replacement pads. It is important that with cars with anti lock brakes that the bleeder screws must be opened when pushing the plunger back. Not doing so and forcing fluid up to and in the reserve can injure the anti lock brake system and they are expensive to repair.

Can you change the back brakes on a 94 cutlass supreme without using the spanner type tool and by just removing some bolts


Most likely not. I have used two people and a pair of long needle nose pliers. Most car parts stores will loan you tools as well.

How to replace front brake pads on a How to replace front brake pads on a 2000 Chevy S10 4WD pickup?


First you want to remove brake fluid from brake resovoir, raise front wheels off ground and set park brake or block rear wheels. Remove front wheels, keep steering wheel unlocked so you can turn rotors side to side. Loosen bolts that hold caliper end gently pry caliper free from rotor, remove caliper and remove pads, use bungy cord to hang caliper away from rotor, have rotors measured to see if they are thick enough to have machined, replace if out of specs. Match up pads with old ones, use anti- squeak red liquid and put layer on back of pads, let dry. Use tool to put pistons back into calipers, slowly put pistons back into bore while opening up bleeder screw so ABS won't be damaged. After rotors resurfaced, wash with rubbing alchohal to remove any oils from hands, install rotors and reverse putting pads back onto caliper and reinstall, torque caliper bolts to factory specs and tighten bleeder screws. Install wheels, torque lug nuts to factory specs and replace brake fluid in resovoir. Lower car carefully to ground and press brake peddle without pumping it. Any air in system should bleed out, if not get someone to help with bleeding system. Road test to ensure no squeaks or pulling, burn brakes in slowly.

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

Rotors warp and pads wear out after 3 months of normal use. back brakes never have been replaced after 126,000 k


Brake have to come apart every year, to clean
off rust,inspect pads and rotors and most importantly
lube the places the pads slide

I have no idea why you would even mention the
rear brakes 126,000 k (75,600) That is purely abuse

Neglect sounds like your only Issue

Rotors never get hot enough to warp

When first applying the brakes there is a shuttering in the front end. After this it goes away and the car stops fine.


you need new brake pads and rotors and possibly calipers, the rotors are most likely warped. or the pads are worn enough where the caliper piston extends to the limit and is not stable in the caliper and wobbles.
