Sounds like the slide pins need to be looked at for ware, marks, scoreing.If there is no marks then just regrease and put back in ,but make sure you use grease that is recomended for break calipers.if cost is a factor for the grease then you can use high temp bareing grease.they also have replacements at most autoparts stores if 1 should break.if this doesnt fix it then start looking at the rubber break line as these can swell inside over time and particles can collect in side it and mess with the fluid flow,those are the cheepest to replace.after those then comes checking the proportioning valve and or master cylinder.and maybe replaceing the caliper its self.

When I press the break and then release there is an air leak sound. What is the cause?


The brake servo or booster is divided into two chambers separated by a flexible diaphragm. Briefly there is vacuum on one side and pressing the brake pedal allows air to enter the other side and this is how the brake pedal effort is boosted.

The air enters via a filter through which the pushrod connected to the brake pedal passes. When the brake is applied the hiss of air entering the chamber will be audible; more on some models than others.
When the forces are balanced; when the brake is sufficiently applied no more air will be required and the hiss will cease. When the brakes are at rest; not applied there should be no hissing.

If there is it indicates a problem with the brake booster, perhaps dirt in the valve gear. Although repairs are possible they aren't very practical to carry out. A repair shop would probably charge more for fitting an overhaul kit than for replacing the unit.

Locking brake on the rear passenger side!


Its probably the rubber hose that goes between the metal break line and the caliper. That hose is like a 2 way valve that lets fluid into the caliper when brakes are applied and lets fluid back out when brakes are released. These hoses deteriorate and stop letting fluid back out causing the brake to stay tight against rotor.

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.

My mini van 1999 dodge caravan , the front drivers side wheel , breaks squeak while driving but not when i apply breaks the break light comes on intermittently . what could be the problem ?


this is likley to be a sticky piston in the brake caliber,,,stirp the brakes out on both sides of the car and free off the pistons by cleaning them first then pushing them right back into the calibers chace that the caliber is free to slide as well use copper grease on the caliber pins and on the "back" of the brake pads,, check there is plenty of life left in the pads if not fit a new set to "both sides" dont just fix one side do both sides or the car wont stop in a strate line or may pull to one side!

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.
