Question about 2001 Volvo S40

Rear Brakes S-40

Thank for the tip.
I checked the brake assembly and I see a bolt holding the body of the manual brakes and the other bolt that holds the level mechanizm. The only left is the bleeding nut.
Can you point me on the right direction?

Thank you

It is the one with the lever on it. Remove the lever so you can back it off. Be careful, if you back it off to far the mechanism in the cylinder will come apart and you will have to open it up to put it back. This is a lot more difficult.

How do I remove the rear end


It's really pretty simple. Jack the truck up and rest it on jackstands on the frame of the truck. Remove the wheels, brake calipers "if it's disc brakes drums if it's drum brakes" remove the brake cable from the park brake assembly, remove the brake fluid lines from the wheel cylinders if it's drum brakes, remove the bolts holding the driveshaft to the rear yoke, remove the bolts holding the rear end to the leaf springs while the rear end is supported with the jack and then slowly let the jack down.... It's out!

How do I replace the rear axle assembly in a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis?


If you have air suspension, turn it off from the trunk. Put car on hoist and support rear axle. Make sure you support the axel well so the coil springs do not injure you when you remove the shocks and etc. Remove brake lines from brakes. Remove emergency brake cable from brakes. Remove sway bar link bolts to frame. Remove the bolts that hold axle to rear control arms. Remove rear shocks. ( these are a real pain ) Axle assembly can now be removed.

Rear brakes on 2011 kia sorento


You will likely find there are two bolts holding the calipers on the 2011 Kia Sorento. You can check this by parking your Sorento, setting the parking brake to be sure it won't roll and carefully lifting and removing one of the rear wheels, just like you are removing a flat.

When you remove the wheel, you should find that the brake caliper carrier is accessible on the rear top of the wheel assembly. Simply reach around and carefully feel the carrier assembly and you should feel a couple of bolt heads because two bolts are generally used to hold down Kia rear calipers.

How to replace rear shocks on a 86 Toyota celica gts?


This procedure can be found at autozone.com. You can register for free, listing make, model, year, and engine size. Find procedure under "repair guides". Good illustrations, too.
1. On liftback, remove rear speaker grilles. On coupe, remove suspension service hole cover or the speaker board (on rear deck by back window).

2Drum brakes or disc brakes? No matter: Do not break apart the brake lines. There is a clip on the strut to hold the brake line and it's connection to the rubber brake hose. Take the c-clip off and cut the brake line retainer with a hacksaw (careful of the brake line and hose). This way you won't have to worry about bleeding the brakes when done. Take the line out of the strut retainerclip. When re-installing, just use a zip tie to hod the brake line secure.
3. Loosen, but don't remove, the 19mm nut holding the suspension support to the strut (this is the larger center nut on top of strut at the deck by rear window.
4. Disconnect stabilizer bar at lower end of strut housing. You will need a 14mm wrench and a 3/16 (or equivalent metric size) allen wrench to hold the link steady while removing the nut.
5. Disconnect strut at the axle carrier-17mm size bolts.
6. At top, remove the three strut to body nuts-size 13mm., and remove the strut.
To put your new struts inside the coil spring, you will have to have a spring compressor. I don't have one, so after removing strut, took to a shop for that, cost was $20 for one side. Picked it up and installed it myself.
To install: Position assembly and tighten the upper strut to body nuts to 23 ft. lbs.
2. Tighten lower strut-to-carrier bolts to 119 ft. lbs..
3. Connect stabilizer bar to strut. Tighten the nut to 26 ft. lbs.
4. Tighten top strut holding nut to 36 ft. lbs. (the shop had already done this for me) and install dust cover.
5. Reconnect brake line and hose, and bleed the brakes, if you broke the line apart. If you didn't break the line apart and just cut the clip retainer, you will not have to bleed the brakes.
6. Lower the car and have rear wheel alignment checked.

If you have a spring compressor, and can do that procedure yourself, the instructions for it are found at autozone.com, along with the above that I have outlined.

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

Rear brakes chrysler voyager 05/01


There should only be two bolts on the back of the caliper holding it into the knuckle. Removing those two bolts should free the caliper. In fact I believe they're 12 or 13 millimeter bolts.
