My front brake pads keep holding up...when I drive they get really hot and wont release...what's the deal?


Your brake caliper or your brake hardware is sticking. Pull it apart(two bolts) and push the caliper back in with a spreader or a c-clamp. The grease the brake hardware(where the bolts go in). That might do the trick. If you have a hard time getting the caliper peston back in then you need to replace it and bleed the brake system.

How to change 2001 crown victoria brake pads


Jack up car, remove the wheels, take out the two retaing bolts on the brake caliber, slide caliber up off brake disc, remove old brake pad, use a C-Clamp or big pair of Channel locks to compress the piston in to the brake caliber, Insert new brake pads onto caliber, slide brake caliber back over brake disc, reinstall the 2 retaining bolts. put tire back on. Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

How do you remove the front disc brakes?


To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
1. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
2. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
3.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
4. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
5.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
6.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
7.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
8. Install your new brake pads .
9. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....

After changing front pads and discs on my civic 1998 1.5lsi vetec.in the morning the first time i press the brake there is a clunk as if bedding in but okay after that.


go back and check to see if you have tighten up all your bolts. if not the clunk is commimg from the pressure foe the brake booster is putting out is a lot of pressure and if there is one bolt that is not tight when you put your caliber back on, the pressere will tourge and move the caliber and you wil get that clunk sound .....LETS HOPE YOU DIDENT STRIP THE CALIBER THREADS WHEN YOU PUT THE BOLTS BACK IN. ALWAYS BE CAREFUL IN THIS AREA.. ALS CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE CLIPS ON THE BRAKE PADS ARE SUCURE ON THE OUT SIDE CALIBER HOUSING AND THE IN SIDE HOLE OF THE PISTON OF THE CALIBER GOOD LUCK.....

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab brake replacement


jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be aware the back brakes are diffrent.........

let me know when you are ready for the back brakes.
do not blead the front ones if ou intend to do the back brakes afterwarwords......

if you are only doing the front brakes you must blead the the passanger side first......... if you do not have the bolts holding your caliber on than you will have a pin the you will take a hammer to and knock it out that will release them....
