The 2 silver rods should have heads on them that are bolts, about 16 mm, take them out, they hold the caliper in place and allow them to slide back and forth with the brakes. They are torqued in fairly tight, get a breaker bar on them and hang on tight, pull the bolts, pull the caliper up and off, remove the pads, put in the new pads with the shims and squealers as they were, get a big C-clamp and press the piston on the caliper back in, real slow, or you blow brake fluid all over your engine, If they are self adjusting brakes, you will need to turn them in by hand, if the C-clamp won't do it, they are self adj. Put the caliper back on and put the bolts back in, tighten them up, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

I don't believe you have enough knowledge, to be doing brakes,based on your question.
You obviously don't have the tools.

What tool removes the calipers to change the brake pads?


You will need a 17MM Socket Or a 15MM socket depending on wheel size
Behind the calliper locate the two bolts, Not the bolts on the case around calliper , But on the calliper it'self then remove bolts and remove calliper replace pads, Put the bolts back tighten, And then brake pad change is complete.

I have a 02 dodge durango slt. The front roders have been turned twice then replaced in the last 2 years. The truck has been to 3 different mechanics including myself. The brakes are so touchy it keeps...


You can switch brake pad manufactures. It sounds to me that the truck has lifetime pads on it. Hence the need to change rotors every year. Swap the good pads for the basic and youll solve this problem. Good luck. :)

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike

Change front brake pads on 2001 dodge durango


Front, remove the hold down clip, should be a 7mm or a 45 torx bit to get the slider pins out. If you are not sure what you are doing, please spend a little money and have a pro do it for your safety, and the safety of others around you.

Rear pad replacement on a Jaguar S-Type


Well,

I fill you in what I learned today. I have a 2005 S-Type Jaguar and the dealer sayed it needed new pads in the rear. They wanted $300 just for the pads and another $150 or so to install. That $450 bucks to replace the brake pads only on the rear of the car. And of course, the extended warranty doesn't cover this, so I said no thanks. I found the best brake pads from Napa for $52. I purchased them through my brothers shop- saved a little. I done lots of brake pad replacements over the years, but not on a new car like the Jaguar. Well they are a little different and the frist one took me awhile . Here is the trick. 1) MAke sure the parking brake is off and you do this by starting the car, stepping on the normal brake and then pushing the parking break lever down while shutting off the car. 2) You then take the tire off, use jack stands to ensure safety.3) Take off brake callipers, 2 bolts and the brake pads should just fall off.4) take the anti-rattle plate off the old pads by prying it off carefully with a tiny screw driver- clean and then install on the new ones. 5) Here I release the the valve for the brake fluid. I did not want to damage the system if the fluid went back into the system when I retracted the calliper. You use some fluid, but you can add when finished. 6)You either need one of those brake calliper tools that you push the calliper in with and If you don't have the trick new one with the keys to turn the brake calliper cylinder, you can get by with the old version like I did and use a pair of channel locks to turn counter clockwise, while continuing to turn the tool. The cylinder needss pressure on it while you turn. This will put in in the proper place. 7) Ensure you have the slots up and down so that the pin in the pad fits up into the cylinder. you know this is correct when you have it perfect vertical and center within the calliper. Pay attention when taking off! 8) Set the brake pads in their proper place and then slide the calliper over them. IT should go over freely or else you need to turn more on the cylinder. 9) Tighten the bolts and replace the tire and you are done. Next side!
Hope this helps. -Dave @ dchristi@zianet.com

2000 durango brake problem


The pads are most likely glazed, and therefore aren't working well. Regardless of how much life they have left, replace them and your braking issues are likely to go away.
