Here are some procedures you can follow to replace the brake pads. 1. Clamp the rubber lines with vacuum line clamps. You can get these at your local auto parts store. 2. Loosen the bleeder screw with the proper size wrench. 3. Loosen and remove the lower caliper to bracket bolt. 4. With the proper tool, and using a pan to catch the fluid, compress the piston in. Tighten the bleeder screw. 5. Side the caliper off and remove the old brake pads. 6. Loosen and remove the caliper mounting bracket(this is the part that the brake pads slide back and forth on). 7. Remove the rotor and have it measured and resurfaced if it is thick enough. Please keep in mind that rotor thickness can have an impact on brake performance as well as a safety issue. If it is too thin, replace them. If you just slap pads on you,could possibly get a squeal or other undesirable noise from the brakes. 8. Clean and lubricate the slide pins and bracket with some caliper grease. 9. Reinstall the rotors. 10. Remount the caliper mounting bracket, and with a torque wrench, tighten the bolts to proper specs. You can get the torque specifications from the parts store as well or a shop that does brake service. 11. Reinstall new brake pads. I usually put the pad with the metal sensor on the inside and on the bottom. 12. Remount the caliper and tighten the bolts to proper specification. 13. Loosen the bleeder screw, and with the help of an assistant, bleed the air from the system, making sure the master cylinder does not go dry. You will know if there is no more air in the system if there are no air bubbles coming from the bleeder screw as well as the firmness of the brake pedal. Make sure you have plenty of brake fluid on hand. There might be a sequence in which you have to bleed the system. You can get that from the parts store or shop as well. The sequence is usually right rear, left rear, right front, left front. 14. Mount the wheels, torque them to proper specification. Also, inflate the tires to proper pressure. Low tire pressure can cause a pulling effect. There you have it and good luck.

What do i need to remove a rear rotor off a 1993 cadillac seville


Hello Rodrigo, Thank you for the question - the rotor removal is a simple job on the Seville. I will give you the complete procedure.
Raise and support the vehicle.

Remove the rear tires, unbolt the caliper from the bracket, unbolt the bracket from the spindle and clean and grease all slide plates and slide pins using synthetic caliper grease insuring the new brake pads will slide properly in the clean slide plates, remove old rotors from hub assembly, clean machining oil from braking surfaces of new rotors and install them on the hub assembly, reinstall both brackets on spindles and tighten bolts, using a "c" clamp press the piston back inside both calipers and reinstall both calipers on both brackets and tighten bolts, reinstall tires... torque all lug nuts to 100 ft lbs and place vehicle back on pavement.

DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE. sit in drivers seat and press the brake pedal to the floor several times until the brake pedal feels secure under your foot you are now ready to drive... happy motoring

If the rotor is stuck, smack it with a dead blow, or soft faced hammer--- it will free up

After it is loose, pull it straight off of the wheel studs.

I have a 2004 Honda Odyssey, and have removed the caliper and old brake pads. I bought new replacement pads for the correct year and model. After compressing the piston, I ran into a problem, the new pads...


Remove the clips from the caliper bracket. You will probably see a build-up of rust under them. Remove the rust and apply a thin coat of high temp anti-sieze to the surface and then reinstall the clips. The pads should now move freely.

Where the old pads stuck in the bracket?

Do the new pads look exactly like the old pads?

What brand are they?

I have a 2003 toyota corolla S edition. I need to get the rear brakes replaced, but when I went to the parts store for rotors and pads, they told me I might need drums and shoes. How can I find out what...


The best way would be to remove the wheel and see if you have drums or discs. Disc brakes on the rear will look like the front brakes, as discs are required on the front of 1970 vehicles and newer. You will see the rotor which will be shiny where the pads have rubbed it. On a drum, it will look like a rusty metal bowl facing away from you. If you have custom wheels you may be able to see through the spokes, but dust guards will not let you tell from the back.

Replace rear brake pads


Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING
Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

How do you change the front disk pads


The pads are mounted to the caliper. The caliper is bolted to the spindle bracket. There is brake hardware which should be replaced with the pads.
Look behind the wheel at the backside of the spindle bracket. The spindle bracket is on the verticle shaft with coils on one end and an A shaped bracket on the other. There are usually 2 bolts that may have normal bolt ends or "Allen" bit fittings.

When you buy the brake hardware you can check for the proper socket for the mounting bolt. You unbolt the caliper, use a rope or wire to suspend it under the frame without disconnecting the brake line.

The pads come off with the hardware. You need to compress the caliper pistons to make the new pads fit. Use a C clamp and an old pad to squeeze the pistons back into the caliper. Remove the Master Cylinder cover so fluid can return.

Then use a bonding chemical like "brake quiet" to mount the rear pad to the caliper piston. Mount outside pad to caliper and then slide caliper over the rotor on the spindle bracket. Lube the slides of the new brake hardware and bolt into place.

You should have the rotors checked for thickness and whether they are warpped before you put on the new pads.

Changing the rear disk brakes on a 06 toyota sienna, what is the process?


-Set up jack and properly block front tires.

-Do not set parking break as this may hender removing the rear calipers. Open hood and remove the brake resevoir cap.

-Remove hubcaps if applicable,

-Loosen Lugnuts but do not remove,

-Jack up van,

-Remove tire.

-Caliper should be visible. There are two bolts or hex heads on the back side that can be a pain to remove sometimes.

-Pull the caliper off the rotor, It is recomended to have the rotors turned or replaced. With the old pad still in place, take a c clamp or brake caliper squeezer and compress the caliper

-remove old pad, take note for the reinstall of the new pad.

-reverse the steps. This is a simple break down. Hope it helps

How do i change the back brakes on a 2006 tiburon


Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.

Unable to remove rear brake pads on Volvo V40 2001


Rear pistons need to be rotated anti clockwise when pushed in.
There is a special tool to do this with, but you could try rotating it with a vice when pushing them in.

This is a verry common procedure for cars with rear disk breaks.
Otherwise the handbrake would not work it they could push themselves in.

Have fun

Rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding


Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.
