Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Montero
Is it an easy job to remove and replace the rear brake pads for a 1992 mitsubishi pajero, do i need any special tools?? thanks
You'll need a few special tools. You will need some common metric wrenches and sockets, 10-19mm will be more than enough, and you'll need an 8mm Allen bit as well, to remove the caliper mounting bolts (these anchor the caliper to the caliper carrier). If you're doing rear brakes, you'll also need the proper tools to screw the calipers back in. If you're doing front brakes, you can use a C-clamp to compress the pistons back in. Other than that, and maybe a big beefy screwdriver to separate the caliper from the carrier, there's nothing to it.

Without contaminating everything, try some penetrating oil sprayed carefully on the pins and let it set overnight and then some light tapping with a small hammer to break any rust bond.

Yes you will need special tools for a rear brake job. you will need a set of xzn wrenches large ones say 12 and up to 18 I believe, and you will need a caliper tool that spins and compresses the caliper at the same time

hi from uk the rear brake calipers pistons have to be rotated and pushed backwards into the calipers fully so as to enable new pads to be fitted there is special tool for this to make job easy and if you check E BAY garage/tools and equipment pages there are numerous types and different prices dependant on makers ? however you can improvise/make a tool using a a 1/2 inch square drive socket and t/bar +short extension look at piton and you will see it has slots ? cut away an old socket to provide teeth to fit these slots ? then you can both push and rotate c/wise the piston back into caliper or you can buy the tool ? from motor supermarket if you have time ? hope this helps

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!
