Hi

Does the caliper have a cross or a line through it? if so then this model has the calipers that screw back into the caliper, they are not the type you squeeze back into position. you need a specail tool, they cost about £15 or if you are lucky you may be able to turn it manually, thats rare though.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

I have opened the bleeder screw, actually taken it off completely. I have the brake line loosened to relieve any other pressure that might be on the caliper. The caliper absolutely will not come off and...


Remove cap from brake fluid resovoir.

Remove spring clamp from caliper (I made the mistake of not doing this when photographing)

Remove bolts from rear of pad housing (16mm bolt x2) These are situated top and bottom of drive shaft - be careful, theyre tight.

Remove housing from discs, this allows you to remove pads. You may need to prize them open slightly with a flat screwdriver. This will also help when putting in new, thicker pads. (see spring clamp as I mentioned above.)

Remove first pad (outside one)

Turn housing over, this cable is the pad sensor. Carefully remove this (I used WD40 to loosen) There is also a spring clamp to hold this sensor in place. Keep it.

Now pop new pad in, make sure the clips click right in.

This is where the pad sensor pushes in.

Vibration in rear of vehicle when braks are applied


I believe that the rear discs are warped or the tires are out of round when braking. More likely, the discs. --- The following are the instructions for replacing the front and rear pads for the front/back rotors. 1999-01 Grand Cherokee Front
  1. Drain 2?3 of the brake fluid from the front reservoir. Use the bleeder screw at the front outlet port to drain the fluid. If equipped with anti-lock brakes, relieve the system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Insert a small prybar through the caliper opening and pry the caliper (using the outboard brake pad) to bottom the pistons in the caliper bore. NOTE: This will back the brake pads off of the rotor surface to facilitate the removal and installation of the caliper assembly.
  5. Pry the caliper support spring out of the caliper.
  6. Remove both caliper slide pin bushing caps and slide pins.
  7. Lift the caliper from the anchor.
  8. Using a piece of mechanics wire, support the caliper so there is not tension on the brake hose.
  9. Remove the brake pads from the caliper. Fig. 2: Installing the inward brake pad on the front caliper pistons - 1999-01 Grand Cherokee 93026g92.gif
    To install:
  10. Position the brake pads onto the caliper.
  11. Position the caliper into place on the anchor.
  12. Coat the caliper slide pins with silicone grease and torque them to 21-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm). Install the slide pin bushing caps.
  13. Install the caliper support spring in the top of the caliper under the anchor; then, install the other end into the lower caliper hole. NOTE: Hold the spring in the caliper hole with your thumb while prying the spring end out and under the anchor.
  14. Fill the master cylinder with fluid and bleed the brake system.
  15. Before driving the vehicle, pump the brakes several times to seat the pads.
  16. Install the wheels.

Rear pisttons on ford 500 will not push in to install rear brake pads


If you have disk brakes, and you cannot fit the new brake pads in the callipers? Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow pressure to escape. Use a large C clamp connecting it to the front and back of the piston. Turn the screw on the clamp to compress the brake piston then release the clamp. The piston will remain compressed allowing you the fit the housing over the new brake pads.

Occasionally after driving and stopping my right front brake caliper is slow to release,a few times it actually stayed applied and become extreamely hot. When this happen I opened the bleeder screw...


Replace the rubber brake hose on that side....they are prone to rotting on the inside and letting fluid pass through it ,but not letting it back out,causing caliper to stay hung up and making you believe caliper is sticking,and opening the bleeder lets off pressure for a little while...I have seen many unneeded calipers be replaced,and then problem is still there.Now I will almost always replace both hoses when doing a front caliper change....they get old too...Good luck..Lee

Telstar tx5 rear disc brake piston will not retracted


You take the bolt from behind the cylinder and then you should see a 4mm allen key head. turn it and push cylinder in. take the bleeder valve off to relieve any pressure also and while screwing with an allen key its important to know that it is leftr hand thread. :)

Rear brakes mini cooper


You rent (or buy) a piston retractor tool. It screws the piston back in place. I found mine for around $50. Saves a lot of time and aggrevation to use the tool.

I trying to put new brake pads on the rear, but I can not fit the caliper over the two new pads, how do I relieve the pressure on the caliper ?


You can relieve the caliper pressure by opening the bleeder valve. It's a small hex nut with a little spout coming out of it. It may be kind of hard to loosen so be careful not to strip it. Or you may just be able to get a large c-clamp over the piston and caliper housing and be able to crank it back.

I can not compress the piston on the caliper to install new pads


You're working on the rear caliper, correct? Those don't compress - they screw in, and you need a specific tool for that. AutoZone rents them on their tool loan program. To use it, find the piston socket that best fits the caliper piston, and use that. Open the reservoir cap and screw the piston back in, reseal the reservoir, install your new pads, and you're good to go (be sure to bed the pads in).

If you're working on the front and can't compress it, loosen the reservoir cap to relieve the seal of the system and allow the fluid to move without fighting against pressure. Replace the cap after the pistons are retracted.
