You can do the job with regular pliers, Large Flathead screwdriver, and a set of needle nose pliers. They sell a rear brake tool which some times makes the releasing of springs and stretching some what easier but they are certainly not required. The job will take you about 2 hours doing once side at a time if you don't have a floor jack to jack up both sides at once and jack stands to support the vehicle while you work.

I can't colapse the rear calipers and they are off the car


the rear calipers screw in on many poniac products. there should be a slot on the face of the piston for a special tool to turn them in, but i've used a pair of channel locks before.

Changing rear brakes 2005 freestar


The brake calipar pistons on the rear, have to be turned in with a special tool, they can't be pressed in like the front. turn them in just far enough for the new pads to fit over the rotors.

Rear Brakes 2005 Jetta


im sorry bro i find that you needing special tools a load of bs. i may be wrong but i really really doubt it. brakes are easy. first locate the caliper and there should be 2 bolts holding that tight. loosen the top bolt and then take out the lower bolt from the caliper. the old pads should just fall out. remove the master cylinder cap. (the jug with brake fluid in it.) compress the piston replace the old pads and push the claiper back down on the rotor. tighten bolts back up pump the brakes till hard with the car off and then repeat for the other side.

I need to replace the rear brakes and rotors on my 2004 Audi A4. Will I need special tools to do this? Can I still do the job without these tools?


'B6' (2001-2004) A4s dont have seperate rotors on the rear brakes like the pre 2001 A4s do. When changing the rear pads + discs the only special tool you will need is a caliper wind back tool. Let me know if you do also need to replace any ABS components aswell as I might be able to advise.

Front or rear? I am assuming rear as most people think you can just push them back. They need to be turned clockwise while pushing them in.

Replace brake pads on chev. colorado pick-up


90% of the time the sequence is identical.

Slacken wheelnuts.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
Remove roadwheel.

There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.

Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.

Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.

With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.

Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.

ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.

Hope this helps.
