How to replace front discs and pads


Front brakes are very simple to do:
  • Pull off the front tires.
  • Remove the brake pads by removing the slide pin bolts where the piston assembly attaches to the caliper mounting bracket. The slide pin bolts are usually a 12 or 14mm bolt. Once the piston assembly is free slide the old brake pads out.
  • Compress the piston back into the caliper by using a large pair of channel lock pliers or a c-clamp. If you don't do this, you won't be able to get the new pads on.
  • Before you put the new pads on, replace the rotor.
  • Remove the two bolts for the caliper mounting bracket. They are in the back and are bigger than the slide pin bolts. Usually a 17 or 19mm bolt.
  • Pull off the caliper mounting bracket.
  • At this point the old rotor should slide right off. If it doesn't slide right off, look for a screw in the center of the rotor, some cars will have a screw there to hold the rotor on. If there's no screw and it still won't come off, try tapping it with a hammer. If you're replacing the rotor, don't be shy.
  • Put the new rotor on. Make sure to clean off any grease with brake cleaner that may be on the braking surface from packaging.
  • Put the caliper mounting bracket back on.
  • Put the new brake pads on. Make sure to use some anti-squeal grease on the back of the pads.
  • Put the caliper assembly back on with the slide pins. Grease up the slide pins as well.
  • Put the wheels back on.
  • Make sure to pump your brakes 10 - 15 times before you drive off. Because you compressed the piston back into the caliper, the piston will not be contacting the brake pads unless you pump the brakes.

Good Luck!

How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


Front brake
Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
brake_pads_rotor.jpg
Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
brake_pad_set.jpg
Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
remove_brake_caliper.jpg
Remove Front Brake Caliper
After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
Step 4: Remove Brake Pads

Remove Front Brake Pads
Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
brake_rotor.jpg
Remove Brake Rotor
With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
compress_caliper.jpg
Resetting Brake Caliper
To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
new_brake_rotor.jpg
Install Brake Rotor
Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
new_brake_pads.jpg
Installing New Brake Pads
Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
Re-Install front Bake Caliper
Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

When buying rotors for a 95 Bronco 4X4 should the rotors be seperate from the hub or should they be attached as one piece? Im getting mixed info from part stores.


The reason you're getting mixed info from parts stores is because it comes both ways.
Look at the following to determine which one you have, 4 wheel disc brakes (floating front rotors) or rear drum brake model (except 4 wheel disc brakes):
Brake Disc (Rotor) REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Except F-Super Duty with 4-Wheel Disc Brakes Fig. 1: Secure the caliper so there is no tension on the brake hose 88289p22.jpg
  1. Jack up the front of the truck and support it with jackstands. Remove the front wheel.
  2. Remove the caliper assembly and support it on the frame with a piece of wire (or something equally secure) without disconnecting the brake fluid hose.
  3. Remove the hub and rotor assembly.
  4. Install the rotor in the reverse order of removal, and adjust the wheel bearing as outlined in Section 1.
F-Super Duty with 4-Wheel Disc Brakes The hub and rotor are individual pieces, allowing the rotor to be replaced independently. The front and rear rotors are the same and are attached with 10 bolts and washers. The bolts are tightened a little at a time, in a crisscross fashion, to an ultimate torque of 74–89 ft. lbs. (100–121 Nm). prev.gif next.gif

Rotors on a Chevy


In the future, please be more specific with your question. For this one, I'll speculate, and cover the bases. If you're looking for whether or not to replace rotors, here's what to look for. If the brake pedal "pulses" when you brake, then your rotors are warped, and yes, then need replacing. If you look at the rotor, and see deep gouges or pits, or the rotor surface is no longer relatively flat, then it needs replaced.
As for how to replace them. You will need to remove the wheel, support the offending corner of the vehicle with a block or a jack stand (you should never leave a car supported on a jack), and turn the wheels towards the side you're working on for ease of access. You will notice two large bolts on the back side of the backing plate that hold the bracket for the caliper. Remove those bolts, then remove the caliper, and support the caliper so that it doesn't fall and break the brake line. You can now remove the rotor, and replace it with a new one. You may need to "coax" it off with a hit from a hammer, as sometimes they get a little rust on them, and need motivation to come off. You should always replace the brake pads with the rotors, so you should squeeze the caliper piston back in, taking car not to make the reservoir overflow, put new pads in the same way as the old ones come out, and then put the caliper bracket with caliper back on as you took it off. Repeat the same process with the other side. You can replace only front, or only rear, but never replace only left or only right. The front are a set, and the rear are a set, and should never be maintained differently. Hope this is what you were looking for, and you get your vehicle sorted out quickly and easily.

I'm trying to remove the front rotor from a 91 Honda Accord and I need to remove the four bolts that retain the hub unit to the steering knuckle. I cannot find explicit instructions on how to pull the cv...


ok not sure the set up without seeing it but if it a floating rotor remove the caliper and braket that the caliper bolts to there will be to phillips screws holding rotor on in the front of rotor remove those and take rotor off. If you have trouble with those screws let me know. If it is a pressed on rotor witch alot of hondas have you will need a slide hammer and a piece that attaches to the end that looks like a ducks foot with four holes or the other one that is not flat but raised you can borrow them tools from autozone. Remove axle nut in center and washer. You see witch attachment will fit over atleast two studs where the lug nuts go (over one stud on one side an the other across not right next to each other) then put lug nuts on to hold the attachment on get them pretty tight. then screw the slide hammer in the center of the attachement screw in a good distance. Know for the fun part you might want to grab a rag slide the piece that slides with wrag wrapped around slide it close to the rotor **** it hard till it hits the end becarefull not to pinch your finger or hand then just keep sliding it close to the rotor and slam it back to the outer end hard some come off easy some take some work just keep hammering away at it. stop every know and then to check lug nuts to make sure they stay tight, you should notice if it is coming out or not dont give up it will come. Also becarefull when it comes off it could hurt you besure to stand on the side. Note, you dont have to remove rotor to remove axle. To remove axle you must remove center axle nut. Then you have to disconnect tie rod end, remove the cotter pin take off bolt use a tie rod seperator slide it in between the tie rod and hole try not to mess up rubber boot hit the end with hammer untill it pops free, then there might be three bolts underneath take those out, if there not there then just disconnect bolts that hold the steering knuckle to the strut take them out pull down you should now have enough room to push xle through if it dont slide out of the hole easy use a punch and hammer put punch in to hole at end of axle hit with hammer, I suggest spraying with wd40 if that dont free it up, take the axle nut turn it around backwards scew on till flush with axle end hit with hammer (do not damage the end) once it comes out you should be able to get to the four bolts. if you just need the rotor off dont worry about axle removal when you put the rotor back on it should go on enough to thread axle nut and tighten pressing rotor back on, before you do check the bearings(balls there should not be one missing put some high temp grease in there. tighten axle nut till rotor is flush all the way in it is best to use a air gun or it will be difficult. hope this helps. I will check this post to see if you run into a problem.

Very easy. Jack up the front of the car and support it with two sturdy jackstands. Remove the front wheels. To the brake fluid nipple on the caliper (the part that squeezed the pads against the rotor), attach a small tube leading to a drainpan, open the nipple, and push back the brake pads from the rotor with a broad screwdriver. Close the nipple. Be careful not to damage the pads if you are not replacing them. (It would be wise to replace the pads when you replace the rotors, though).

Two bolts hold the brake caliper onto the steering knuckle. Remove both bolts, preferably with an impact wrench, and remove the caliper. On some cars the bolts have indented 10mm hex-wrench heads rather than standard bolt heads, so you may need to acquire a new tool. Be careful to support the caliper so you do not damage the hydraulic brake hose. Slip the old rotor off the studs and replace it with your new one. New rotors are packed in oil which will damage your brake pads, so clean the new rotors with vinegar before installing them. Replace the caliper and pads. Check to see you have sufficient brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir before operating the vehicle. If the brakes seem at all spongy, bring your car to a qualified mechanic to inspect your work and to bleed the brake hydraulic syatem. Always do both front rotors, never just one. Otherwise, your car will **** violently to one side when you brake.
