SOURCE: removal of brake calipers and pads on 1992 xj6 jaguar

Hi Jasa

Unless you are mechanically competent, I would not advise you carry out this procedure yourself, but leave it to the professionals.

If you are mechanically minded, and competent, the pads are relatively easy to replace, as follows.

Jack up the vehicle and put on stands, if you don´t have access to a hoist?

Remove wheels, and open the hood, put some kitchen roll around the brake fluid reservoir, to catch any excess brake fluid, when you push back the brake caliper pistons, if it´s been overfilled.
On the front brake caliper's, you are best to put in a little lever between pads and disc, and ease back the piston to fully retracted, unless you have a small G clamp which will do the same job when caliper is adrift.

Remove the 2 x 13mm caliper securing bolts and swing off the caliper, and support with a piece of wire, don´t just let it dangle on the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and sensor wire, check the caliper piston dust cover for splits, and clean caliper, housing, etc, and disc, with brake cleaner.

Fit the new brake pads to the caliper, and refit with 2 new securing bolts with blue lock tite, (normally supplied with the B/Pads.)

The rear caliper´s are pretty much the same as the front, although you can just undo the top bolt and swing the caliper back, but I usually remove both, for ease of cleaning, and inspection.

After rear caliper´s and pads and sensor wire, and new bolts are fitted, pump the brake pedal with the ignition on, and just run around, and check there are no leaks from the caliper pistons.
Check the fluid level, and lower with suction syringe if necessary.

By the way, 1. When did you last change your brake fluid ?
2. Adjust your front wheel bearings end float ?

You could do this now before you fit the wheels.?

Let me know if you wish the details for that too ?

Good luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please !


Then refit wheels, drop down the car,

The brakes on my jaguar xj6 is hard and not effective, what could be the problem

A hard brakepedal and poor braking means the brake power booster not working.There is a large vacum line that supplies power to the brakes and a check valve to ensure the vacum stays constant.If vacum system is good then booster is bad..most times the brake fluid leaks out the back ofbrake master cylinder and eats up brake booster

My son's car is out of fluid. no resistance at

No, there will be too much air trapped in the lines. The pedal may firm up, but will loosen later, creating a dangerous situation. The brakes will need completely "bled". Do a google search for bleeding brakes. It's too complicated to explain here (not very hard, but lots of steps).
