What is the size of wrench do you use to change the front brakes on a 1991 mercury sable


Hi Charmie:
Your question makes me very nervous.
Changing the brakes is not all that complicated, but it involves a really serious part of your vehicle, like being able to STOP when you need to.
The tools needed to change the brake parts are, or should be, a part of the most basic tool kit, and if you're going shopping for tools to change your brakes, I would REALLY recommend that you enlist the help of a friend with experience. Chances are really good that they will have the tools needed.

Being safe is not just working safe, it's also about knowing when we don't have the experience to tackle something on our own.

Where is sensor 33220-76G11 suzuki ignis


old post
you'd have to ask the dealer that, to do a reverse lookup.
why post this, why not post name of part.
or why asking backward,
most folks diagnose problems , do tests, the find a bad part by name ,then look up number based on location and name to order
a part, why backwards ?
just curious. never seen a question on any form like this in 10 years.

Brake squeal


all brakes can squeal, (disc)
especially if lightly braking, it's just pad oscillation,
ever seen a tuning fork, sing. same deal.
some do so no matter what you do.... (been there many a time)
the cure is here, if possible.
1: missing parts, ive seen many shops replace pads and leave out the pad shims... do you need a diagram of what is there.?
i have it if you need it. ask.
2: if above parts not missing put on what i call pad glue.
all stores for cars sell this magic fix. a tube of pad glue,
in fact will be marked anti-squeal magic stuff.
3: some pads like to squeal others dont (brands)

btw i own same car and it does not squeal.
suzuki went chapter 11. and their online pages, (dregs) has has no drawings of the calipers. nor lists those parts above.
i have the FSM book on this car, 2004
and page 4B1 shows these parts. (amaZing huh>)
there are 4 shims
2 one each side.of a pad.
do you need part numbers, i have the official parts catalog too.
see here.

the part names are "anti-noise springs"
i found out that suzuki sells the pad set with new shims.
so if you bought them aftermarket and they are missing
you must reuse the old shims. suzuki dont sell the shims by self.
amazing huh?


I run RAYBESTOS.
they also have drag reducing clips..... upgrade.

Service Grade; Ceramic; Drag Reduction Clip Recommended H6046; OE Pad Material is Ceramic; Front; SGD680C

as seen here, decide what you want then buy exactly that.
all my autostores in town can get them in 1 day or less.

or buy loaded calipers.
or use the glue and pray.

I have 2004 bmw325i.recently the engine light came on and i check the oil and it was bare empty. i took it to where i bought the car and did an oil change, but the engine light is still on. what do you...


hi did they reset the light when they done the oil change? if not then that is the reason why it is still on, but to be honest, having low oil does not normally make the check engine light come on, you normally have an icon that looks like an oil filler can come on the dash when it is low on oil, this might be an underlying fault like an 02 sensor or MAF sensor that sort of thing, you would need to get it to a garage that has diagnostic equipment to do this for you...hope this helps

2004 Ford Freestar cruise control not working


Try pulling up the brake pedal with your foot,Sometimes your brake doesnt come back all the way,and the brake switch keeps the cruise from working.Also,check the fuse.If those answers dont help,It could be the swith itself is bad.Those can be bought at a parts store.

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.
