I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

I need to know how to change the front brakes on a 94 jeep grand cherokee laredo.


  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands. Remove the wheel(s) on the side to be worked on.

NOTE: Removing a small amount of brake fluid from the master cylinder using a turkey baster

Fig. 6: Slide the caliper off the brake rotor

  1. Drain a small amount of the brake fluid from the front reservoir using a suction gun or a turkey baster.
  2. Place a C-clamp on the caliper so that the solid end contacts the back of the caliper and the screw end contacts the metal part of the outboard brake pad.
  3. Tighten the clamp until the caliper moves far enough to force the piston to the bottom of the piston bore. This will back the brake pads off of the rotor surface to facilitate the removal and installation of the caliper assembly

  1. Remove the C-clamp.
Do not push down on the brake pedal or the piston and brake pads will return to their original positions up against the rotor.
  1. Remove the caliper mounting bolts. Tilt the top of the caliper outward and lift it off the rotor.
  2. Hold the anti-rattle clip against the caliper anchor plate and remove the outboard brake pad.
  3. Remove the inboard pad and the anti-rattle clip. Be sure that the support spring is removed with the inboard pad.

  1. Use a piece of wire to support the caliper so that no tension is placed on the brake hose. Do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose.
To install:
  1. Clean all the mounting holes and bushing grooves in the caliper ears. Clean the mounting bolts. Replace the bolts if they are corroded or if the threads are damaged. Wipe the inside of the caliper clean, including the exterior of the dust boot. Inspect the dust boot for cuts or cracks and for proper seating in the piston bore. If evidence of fluid leakage is noted, the caliper should be rebuilt.
Do not use abrasives on the bolts in order not to destroy their protective plating. You should not use compressed air to clean the inside of the caliper, as it may unseat the dust boot seal.
  1. If not already in place, attach the support spring to the inboard brake pad.
  2. Install the anti-rattle clip on the trailing end of the inboard pad's anchor plate. The split end of the clip must face away from the rotor.
  3. Install the inboard pad in the caliper. The pad must lay flat against the piston.
  4. Install the outboard pad in the caliper while holding the anti-rattle clip.
  5. With the pads installed, position the caliper over the rotor.
Before securing the caliper, ensure the brake hose is not twisted, kinked or touching any chassis parts.
  1. Lubricate the caliper pins and bushings with silicone grease. Line up the mounting holes in the caliper and the support bracket and insert the mounting bolts. Make sure that the bolts pass under the retaining ears on the inboard shoes. Push the bolts through until they engage the holes of the outboard pad and caliper ears. Thread the bolts into the support bracket and tighten them to 7-15 ft. lbs. (9-20 Nm).
CAUTION On models with manual/power brakes, pump the pedal until the caliper pistons and brake shoes are seated. On models with anti-lock brakes, turn the ignition ON and allow the booster pump to build pressure. Pump the brake pedal until the shoes are seated and the indicator lights turn off.
  1. Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid and pump the brake pedal to seat the pads.
  2. Install the wheel assembly and lower the vehicle. Check the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder and fill as necessary.

Remember to rate this, good luck.

How do i change the back brakes on a 2006 tiburon


Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.

    Help with changing fron brakes on a 2006 dodge ram truck


    After you have removed the caliper from the caliper mounting bracket, remove the pads and guides.  Make sure you have fully depressed the caliper's piston fully then you can start by putting the little guides back in then reloading the new pads back in the caliper.  Be sure to use some caliper grease on the caliper mounting bolts (the bolts that hold the caliper in place).  If you don't use grease on these mounting bolts, your caliper won't slide right and you can have uneven wear on your pads.  This could easily cause overheating.  Once you place the caliper back in the mounting bracket and tighten the caliper mounting bolts back down tight you are all done.  Put your wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts and you're done!
    MAKE SURE WHEN YOU FIRST START THE TRUCK FOR A TEST DRIVE AFTER INSTALLING THE BRAKES, YOU NEED TO PUMP THE BRAKES BACK UP!!!!  IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL START DRIVING AND HAVE NO BRAKES!!!  PUMP YOUR BRAKES ABOUT 10-15 TIMES FULLY OR UNTIL THE BRAKE PETAL SEEMS FIRM.  ALLOW THE BRAKE PETAL TO COME ALL THE WAY BACK UP BEFORE PUMPING THEM AGAIN.
