My 2000 ford mustang gt v8 make a sweeky noise in the rear tires after even after changing rear brakes and shocks.


The squeaky noise can be several things, but usually it's how your pad contacts the rotor provided it's rear disc. Check the caliper slides, if it's not sliding back and forth, you'll wear the inboard side pad and it will squeak.

How to change rear disc brake pads on 2000 cadillac deville


This should be typical of all rear disc brakes on Cadillacs. You will notice the top illustration is incorrect for rear disc brakes with integral park brake, but if you scroll down you'll see the correct application for your problem,

Mustang rear brakes


nice car i have one myself but the back brakes are a little bit tricky because you can not just push the brake calipers piston back into the bore. but here is how you can do it. you need a large plieres and you have to put the head of the pliers into the calipers piston then spread apart the handels so that the head of the pliers opens up against the inside walls of the piston. then all you have to do is Turn the piston back into its bore. See the rear caliper piston on the mustangs are just like a bolt. they are threaded into the bore and when your pads were they screw them selves out so when you redo your brakes you have to screw them back in just like a bolt. I hope this helps you out on this and if you have any more questions about this procedure just let me know and i would be more than happy to assist you in this.
please rate me if you would
thanks

Replacing disc brakes on a 2000 v.w jetta


When I changed my sisters VW Jetta I used the follow:
  1. Lug Wrench
  2. Ratchet
  3. Socket to fit the caliper bolts (can't remember size)
  4. C-Clamp to push the piston back in
  5. Bucket to set the caliper on while changing the pads
On the rear brakes I had to borrow the special tool to push in rear disc brakes from AutoZone, this tool spins the piston while pushing it back in.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and thanks for using FixYa!

  1. Remove the rear disc brake caliper (2K327).
  2. Remove the brake caliper bolts.
  3. Lift the rear disc brake caliper off the rear disc brake caliper anchor plate (2B582).

    Remove the brake pads by pushing inward and rotating the pad up.

    Retract the caliper piston (2196) into the rear disc brake caliper.

Rear Brakes not loosening up on Mustang


Did you turn the pistons in to allow room for new pads. The calipers are also for your parking brake and need to be turns in when replacing pads.
