How to replace front brake pads on a How to replace front brake pads on a 2000 Chevy S10 4WD pickup?


First you want to remove brake fluid from brake resovoir, raise front wheels off ground and set park brake or block rear wheels. Remove front wheels, keep steering wheel unlocked so you can turn rotors side to side. Loosen bolts that hold caliper end gently pry caliper free from rotor, remove caliper and remove pads, use bungy cord to hang caliper away from rotor, have rotors measured to see if they are thick enough to have machined, replace if out of specs. Match up pads with old ones, use anti- squeak red liquid and put layer on back of pads, let dry. Use tool to put pistons back into calipers, slowly put pistons back into bore while opening up bleeder screw so ABS won't be damaged. After rotors resurfaced, wash with rubbing alchohal to remove any oils from hands, install rotors and reverse putting pads back onto caliper and reinstall, torque caliper bolts to factory specs and tighten bleeder screws. Install wheels, torque lug nuts to factory specs and replace brake fluid in resovoir. Lower car carefully to ground and press brake peddle without pumping it. Any air in system should bleed out, if not get someone to help with bleeding system. Road test to ensure no squeaks or pulling, burn brakes in slowly.

Right rear brake squeals during light braking. Issue started after installing new pads and rotors on all 4 wheels. Since then the pad has been replaced twice (once with a different brand), rotor once,...


Did you put after market pads on or Hyundai pads, there is a differance with the newer cars, dealer pads are made for that car, I know there expensive, but they are better.

What would be the causes for brake lining study light to come on in a bmw x5 2005.


Study light? Do you mean warning light?
There are sensors clipped into the brake pads on the front left and rear right wheels. When the brake pads get very thin, those sensors rub on the brake rotors, and the light illuminates in the dash indicating that it is time to replace the brake pads.
The light can also illuminate if something damages the wire to the sensor. I usually replace my pads before they get down to the sensors, so I re-use my old sensors. Although the wires are fairly well secured to the suspension, after a few years, the wires can get chaffed from the wind blowing them around, and the damaged wire can turn on the warning light.

Brake pad wear indicator light does not go off at the dash after changing rotors brake pads and the sensor in the front wheels all pads and rotors and the sensor is ok at rear. the vehicle has only 30000...


Did you change the sensor? if you did, do a battery reset (disconnect for 10 to 20 min.).

Obviously the wear sensor has made contact with the rotor and is already damaged. You're not even suppose to resuse the wear pad sensor if its worn or damaged anyways.The way how the sensor works is that it must make contact to the rotor to complete the wear pad light indicator circuit. There is no mentioning that he replaced the the wear pad sensor with a new one.

But if one did replaced the wear pad sensor and the wear pad indicator is lit up, the way to reset it is to leave the key on in ignition switch #2 or #1 for about 30sec. turn it off and its reset.

Its possible that you forgot to replace the brake light sensors. They are about 15 bucks, and have to be replaced in order for that light to turn off. You can either get them from the dealer where they'll likely charge you 3 times as much, or you can go to http://www.turnermotorsport.com and get them there.

You have to reset the light by leaving the ignition switch on position #2 for about 30 sec. turn off the ignition and start the engine up and see if it goes out. I recommend buying a new wear pad sensor as well because now light will lit up when you're way below spec (less than 3mm)

Also, you could try with this procedure for one E39: Turning off the Check Brake Linings warning on the Instrument Cluster...
- so you've just changed the brake pads on your E39, along with the wear sensors. The old sensor(s) needed replacement cause you waited a bit too long before changing the pads, and wore through the sensor(s), turning on the BRAKE light on the dash. But wait, the light is still on? But there's a new sensor installed... what gives?!
- there is a procedure required in order to turn off the light/warning. With the ignition off, step on and hold the brake pedal. Now, while holding the brake pedal down, turn on the ignition switch to position 2 (just before cranking). Hold the brake pedal until the BRAKE light is off. Tada, the warning is gone and reset.

NOTE: This procedure worked on a 2001 E46 325i. It took about 15-20 seconds, but it cleared out w/o having to unhook the battery.

The check trac control warning and track contr. light stays on while driving, is this brake pads?


It can be the pads. The wheel sensors count the revolutions of each wheel. On some rear drive differentials there is a sensor in the Differential that can go bad. But if the Brake pads are in pieces, the wheel sensors view can be blocked and the sensors lose count.

The Traction control will activate. Traction control can work in several ways. Some controls activate the rear brakes until both rear wheels are spinning the same RPM. This is destructive to the brake pads. Additional Traction control will cut the engine by choking it or interfering with the Ignition. When the rear wheels spin the same RPM, power is restored. This system is easier on the brakes.

The Emergency brakes are inside the rear Rotor if you have 4 wheel disc brakes. The sensors are in the Drum portion of the Rotors. A lot of Brake shops fail to check the E brakes because so much has to be disassembled. Your Mercury should have a Button on the dash to turn off the feature. Turn it off until you can have it checked.

Brake Vibration


Your front rotor's were no cut right, there wrap so when you brake you feel that out of roundes, take your car back and have them cut the rotor's right, make sure they mic the rotor's to get a mim thickness or rotor will wrap again, if tis thin rotor's will have to be replace.

Rear brake noise after brake replacement


probably a dumb question, but if there is a backing plate, did you make sure it isnt bent and hitting the rotor? you never want to sand new rotors, although i dont think it would cause this concern. i would suggest lightly scuffing up the brake pads. this will eliminate any noise caused by the contact of the rotors and pads. if it goes away then you know its a problem with the pads/rotors.

scoring of only the inside rotors would make me think that possibly the caliper slides are frozen up. make sure they move quite freely on the slides. it is not uncommon for brake pads to score rotors though.

but brake noises at low speeds that dont' change when applying light brake pressure are usually some sort of metal or something contacting the rotor.
