90% of the time the sequence is identical.

Slacken wheelnuts.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
Remove roadwheel.

There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.

Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.

Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.

With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.

Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.

ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.

Hope this helps.

Are rear brakes hard to replace


Not really, jack up car securely, remove wheel to reveal drum/caliper (BRAKES OFF, WHEELS CHOCKED) remove retaining clips/pins/springs whichever type they are, if new discs are needed, now is the time. Remove shoe/pads, check for fluid leaks inside and around drum and lines (good time to check bushes too) insert new pads/shoes after degreasing them and rubbing copper paste onto lining surface to prevent binding and squeaking. Reassemble and do other wheel. Bleed if necessary. Drive carefully for a few days. Good luck. Red.

Common for the door lock solenoid to go bad and your going to need to replace it. You may hear it clicking but it's to weak for it to lock and unlock the door.

Abs light


This is a (4) four wheel sensor system and more than likely one of them has failed. This will cause ABS module to turn on warning lamp and make the brake pedal 'act up' under the right conditions.This 'acting up' is the ABS system getting a false signal that a wheel is not turning the same as the others when it actually is. Have it scanned for codes and a streaming data scan on a road test under the same conditions that you are experiencing the 'act up' to pinpoint the fault. Hope this helps! Please rate me.

Welcome to fixya

Take the wheel off then remove the caliber (brakes ) and then have to remove the nut and pin from the center of the wheel on then it should slide off easy

hope this helps you out have a good day
