There is a kit you can lease from auto zone to insert into the caliper that will turn the piston and compress at the same time its different than the old style where you could use a c-clamp to do it ,,,,,it has to be turned in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.........the kit will cost 55.00 roughly but you get your money back when you return it do not i repeat do not get the little square block with pegs on it from the zone or advanced auto it won't work its **** and a waste of time.

How to change front disc brake pads on 2000 Mazda Bravo B2500


jack up car, remove the road wheels, at the rear of the caliper you will have 2 or 3 bolts holding the caliper onto the stub axle, remove the bolts and remove the caliper, remove the outer pad, leave the inner pad in place and use a "G" clamp to compress the brake piston until it has bottomed, if this is not done the new pads will not fit back over the rotor as the piston is too far out and the new pads are thicker than the old ones.
place the new pads in the caliper and fit over the rotor, replace the 2 or 3 bolts that hold the caliper in place, replace the road wheel, tighten the nuts and lower the car to the ground, pump the brake pedal to see if you have brakes, if you do have brakes take it for a test drive away from any traffic if possible

Just changed rear brake pads on 05 mazda 6. now


This is normal and you need to keep pumping the brakes till they reset there self. Once the brake peddle have reset there self and is firm, check the brake fluid level again and add brake fluid if low. After brakes have reset there self, go for a test drive around the block and check the parking brakes. Good luck.

No rear brakes and handbrake all the way up


Whenever you change pads, you must always pump the pedal several times to get the calipers to take up any excess space between the pad and rotor. You'll fill it in the pedal as they pump up.

Rattle in left rear brake when hit a bump, Ithink it is one of the pads


If you are able to make the rattle go away by slightly pulling on the parking brake, then the problem is with the brake pad. Replace pad.
