The best way is to purchase an “easy out” the same size as the allan wrench. Tap it into the striped hole and back them out.

How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


Front brake
Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
brake_pads_rotor.jpg
Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
brake_pad_set.jpg
Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
remove_brake_caliper.jpg
Remove Front Brake Caliper
After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
remove_brake_pads.jpg
Remove Front Brake Pads
Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
brake_rotor.jpg
Remove Brake Rotor
With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
compress_caliper.jpg
Resetting Brake Caliper
To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
new_brake_rotor.jpg
Install Brake Rotor
Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
new_brake_pads.jpg
Installing New Brake Pads
Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
Re-Install front Bake Caliper
Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

Do you have a basic check list for replacing the front pads? It's been a while since I've wrenched.


block and jack up the wheel take it off there are several different types of retainers some have a split pin which you withdraw to free the disc pads outher ones have a spring clip you may find that y will have to press the hyd cylinder back to fit the new ones as the cylinder has moved out to alow for wear on the old ones while u have it striped down check for any leaks on the wheel cylinder also coat the hyd cylinder with gold grease this will protect it alow about 20min a wheel good luck

How do I remove the front rotors from my 1999 honda accord


Removal & Installation

d4d9fd4.gif
After removing the caliper body, unfasten the retaining bolts and remove the caliper mounting bracket, in order to remove the rotor

  1. Use a siphon or clean turkey baster to remove about half of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle and remove the tire/wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, then lift the caliper assembly away from the brake rotor.
  4. Use a suitable piece of wire to suspend the caliper assembly. This will prevent the weight of the caliper from being supported by the brake flex hose which will damage the hose.
  5. Once the caliper body and brake pads are removed, unfasten the caliper bracket mounting bolts, then remove the bracket from the rotor.
  6. Remove the rotor retaining screws.
  7. Remove the brake rotor by pulling it straight off the wheel mounting studs or if seized in place, remove the stubborn brake rotor by threading in two 8 x 1.25mm bolts, two turns at a time until the brake rotor is released.
To install:
  1. If necessary, completely retract the piston into the caliper using a large C-clamp or other suitable tool as provided in the front disc brake pad replacement procedures in this section.
  2. Install the brake rotor onto the wheel hub and tighten the mounting screws.
  3. Install the caliper mounting bracket and secure with the retaining bolts.
  4. Install the caliper and pad assembly over the brake rotor and mounting bracket and install the mounting bolts.
  5. Fill the master cylinder to the proper level with fresh brake fluid.
  6. Install the tire/wheel assembly and lower the vehicle.
  7. Pump the brake pedal until the brake pads are seated and a firm pedal is achieved before attempting to move the vehicle.
CAUTION Do not move the vehicle until a firm pedal is obtained.

  1. Road test the vehicle to check for proper brake operation.

    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.
