Buy an 8 in C clamp. remove the wheel, take the cover off the brake fluid resovoir, use the C clamp to depress the piston back into the caliper. you do this by placing one side on the metal housing of the caliper, and the other on the edge of the brake pad you can see. there are two bolts which have allen wrench heads that you have to remove. enjoy
1)jack truck up
2)remove wheel
3)remove both 12 mm bolts holding the caliper on
4)pry caliper off..... do not damage the piston boot
5)hang the caliper somewhere using a bungee cord or a bent up coat hanger. DON't just let it hang there.. on an old line this will tear it or cause it to collapse inside.
6)Use the tool mentioned above to reset the piston into caliper. Don't worry brake fluid will leak out of the master cylinder lid...no worries if it does if it didnt you were low on brake fluid to begin with.
7)remove the bolts in the caliper, as well as their cylinder like housings (sliders). clean them and lube them with silglide/ or lubricant that came with pads. Lubricate the backings of the pads aswell very lightly. reinstall the sliders and bolts.
8)pry the old pads off the caliper, install the new ones.
9)if the rotors are being changed they should come off. there maybe OE clips on the lugs nuts holding them off, otherwise they should just fall off..if not persuade them with a hammer. Put the new rotors on

9)remove the stainless steel clips from the caliper bracket, put the new ones on and lubricate them on the outside (any part that will have the pads riding on them). The idea is to help the pads slide in and out when installed.
10) install the caliper that has been loaded with fresh pads. if it does not fit take the pads off, and reset the caliper piston further. Sometimes the calipers sliders are blocking the caliperfrom being seated right if this is the case take the caliper off the rotor and push the sliders in.
11)bolt the caliper back up and your done
12)before you drive you need to pump the brake pedal till it gets hard. if you do not do this, the truck will NOT HAVE any brakes for like 10 full pumps. so pump the brakes before droping out the jack and driving off

2004 nisan titan shiftre gets stuck in park at times


Start by checking if your brake lights work since the shift interlock and the brakes use the same fuse. If they don't you have a bad fuse. If the do then you might have either a bad shift interlock or a bad break switch.

Why do the brakes grab but not release 100% on 2004 Nissan Titan


Sound like caliper/s may be seized or at the very least the caliper guides are seized. Both can be serviced or replaced.

I have a 2005 titan and i changed my front brake pads and bleed to 2 front calipers and the brake pedal is still soft . i took the calipers off and push the pistons back in fluid came out of the top of the...


There is no need to bleed the system unless you opened the lines or the reservoir ran dry. The pedal should stiffen up once the pads have reseated. If you do have to bleed, leave the top on or you will spill fluid. To bleed, have one person pump up the pedal and hold it down while you open and close the bleeder. They should not release the pedal until the bleeder is closed. Do this repeatedly until no air bubbles come out. Am I making sense?

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

Changing front breaks on a 2006 titan...cant seem to get the caliper over the new break pads


hi , your caliper pistons are not retracted all the way in , use 1 of the old pads against the piston(s) use a big channel locks or big c clamp , open the bleeder screw , compress the piston(s) back in all the way , lock the bleeder screw , when calipers are reinstalled , don't forget to pump the pads out with the brake pedal before your throw it in gear , because the first couple of brake pedal strokes will reset the pads to the rotors . then recheck the brake fluid level .

Back breaks are popping like they are locking up on my 2005 titan. Put new pads on it to see if that would help but it has made it worse.


remove the calipers and rotors. check your e-brake shoes inside the rotors. also check your axle seals, if they are leaking. make sure, that no gear lube is present. If all is dry, than check the breather valve which is installed into the r/h axle tube on top. make sure, that it is free and spinning, because that's how the rear seals in titans blow out. The breather gets stuck and rear end doesn't breathe and youe axle seals will blow out and all other seals in rear end. common problem w/breather getting stuck.anyhow, check your e-brake shoes, they may have fallen apart.
