1 Answer

Take off the wheel there will be two pins that hold the caliper on drive them out with a screw dirver or punch that will free up the caliper and let you change the pads DO NOT let the caliper hang by the rubber break line beacuse it WILL break if you replace the disc also, you have to take 4x4 cam off and spindle nut off

1989 toyota pickup front disk brake pads replaced, now the front calipers wont clear the new disk brake pads! Any solutions, please?

remove caliper, push disc all way home, put wheel nut on to hold home, retry fitting them the disc may be slightly scued. If no go try diffrent brand of pad I had same prob with a diffrent car last week & diffrent brand pad was 2mm thiner. If can't exchange pads get piece of emery paper on flat surface & sand away top part of pad material in round motions both ways till they fit. :-)

Change front pads on ford focus 2009 model

The 2009 Ford Focus seems difficult to install the non-caliper side brake disk due to integral springs on the pad steel backing. Looks like the outer cage of the brake, the part that straddles the rotor, needs to be removed for pad installation, then reassembled onto the caliper system with brake pads installed. Haven't attepmted this yet, but it appears to be the only alternative given geometric constraints. This is a lot more difficult than other front disk brake systems where the pads virtually slip right into place.

I have a 91 ford explorer 4x4. I have a loud grinding noise coming from passenger side front wheel that started a few days ago. I have been told cv joint by one person, wheel bearing by another and I...

Without hearing it i honestly couldnt say they could all be right and everything is worn out ,have you checked the brake pads for wear in case that is causing the noise like a worn brake disk (rotor) and as the pad wears down the metal on the pad backing is rubbing on the edge of the worn brake disk ?? take the wheel off and have a good look yourself

How often should the rear brake pads and front brakes be change on a 2003 ford explorer.


It depends on your driving habits and how much you drive the vehicle. All brake pads, have a metal tab that let you know when the brake pads need to be replaced.. so don't worry about it for now, when you start hearing a scratching sound coming from the brake disks, is time to replace them.

Is changing the front brakes on a 1991 mistubishi elipse easy?

If it's about replacing the pads - easy, 15 minutes per wheel. If it's about replacing the disks - relatively easy, but it's a long job, around 1 hour per wheel, the bulk of it being dedicated for the removal and refitting of the calliper.

How do I get my front brakes off my 1991 subaru loyale?

First you remove the wheels
#2 remove the 14mm bolt on the bottom of the calliper and swing the caliper up out of the way of the brake pads. It will pivot on the upper stud the caliper is on.
# 3 remove the pads out of the bracket.
NOTE you will need a special tool to "turn" the caliper pistons back in so you can fit it over the new brake pads.

Front brake makes grinding sound when coming to a stop.

Replace the front brake pads AND have your front brake rotors cut or replaced.
