You need a "C"clamp,or a tyre iron/small crowbar whist undoing the bleed nipple(easiest,but 2 people needed,one to lever and the other to open and close nipple so NO air gets in...)

Can not seem to get the calipher to open up on the rear brakes. My husband is trying to replace them and it will not open up- how do u unlock them??


When you say replace,I assume you mean brake pads
Calipers last for years
You have to turn the piston in first,that is later ratcheted up, for parking brake initial setting
Then you need to push the piston into the caliper,works best if you open the bleeder valve
You will be bleeding all four calipers every two years anyway.
You may be able to get a tool for turning the rear piston or modify one as I had to since none were avail for a Lincoln LS
Have the rear rotors turned,don't put new pads on a worn rotor

Changing the front brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6


no that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man

How to replace rear brake pads


Jack up car, remove wheel. There are two bolts that hold the caliper on. Remove these. Caliper comes off, take old pads out. There is a special tool to compress the piston back into the caliper (do not use a C Clamp on the rears.) Put new pads back on, re-install the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Pump the brake pedal until it is firm. Done.

Compressing calipers to put on new brake pads on 1988 volvo 740


There is a tool available from most auto parts supply outlets, it is a plate that has a compression bolt through it, you slide the plate into the caliper, and tighten the bolt against the piston, then keep turning until the piston is all the way in. These are relatively inexpensive and good to have for next time.

hope this helps.

Replacing front brake pads on detached caliphers


Hi my name is Allen!

Its extremely hard to explain how to install front brake parts without some sort of diagram. Here is what you can do, go to your local library and you can print out the diagrams you need, copies are only about ten cents a copy.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

I get brake judder t low breaking speeds on my 607. Feels like the ABS is kicking in. Pads and disks recently changed. Could it be a sensor faulty?


Next time you park up the car, put your hand on the wheel trims and they should be slightly warm. If you find that one of the front wheels are hot, then suspect the brake calipher. If it turns out to be a problem with the rear brakes, then they are binding if they are hub brakes and not disc.
