Vibration in rear of vehicle when braks are applied


I believe that the rear discs are warped or the tires are out of round when braking. More likely, the discs. --- The following are the instructions for replacing the front and rear pads for the front/back rotors. 1999-01 Grand Cherokee Front
  1. Drain 2?3 of the brake fluid from the front reservoir. Use the bleeder screw at the front outlet port to drain the fluid. If equipped with anti-lock brakes, relieve the system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Insert a small prybar through the caliper opening and pry the caliper (using the outboard brake pad) to bottom the pistons in the caliper bore. NOTE: This will back the brake pads off of the rotor surface to facilitate the removal and installation of the caliper assembly.
  5. Pry the caliper support spring out of the caliper.
  6. Remove both caliper slide pin bushing caps and slide pins.
  7. Lift the caliper from the anchor.
  8. Using a piece of mechanics wire, support the caliper so there is not tension on the brake hose.
  9. Remove the brake pads from the caliper. Fig. 2: Installing the inward brake pad on the front caliper pistons - 1999-01 Grand Cherokee 93026g92.gif
    To install:
  10. Position the brake pads onto the caliper.
  11. Position the caliper into place on the anchor.
  12. Coat the caliper slide pins with silicone grease and torque them to 21-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm). Install the slide pin bushing caps.
  13. Install the caliper support spring in the top of the caliper under the anchor; then, install the other end into the lower caliper hole. NOTE: Hold the spring in the caliper hole with your thumb while prying the spring end out and under the anchor.
  14. Fill the master cylinder with fluid and bleed the brake system.

How to change CV joint mazda 323 mod 1991


In order to change the cv joint, you will need to remove the wheel and the brake caliper and rotor. Raise vehicle on jack stands. Remove the wheel and remove the brake pads and caliper. Tie the caliper up out of the way, do not disconnect the brake line attached. Once the caliper is removed, slide the rotor off. Using the correct size socket, remove the nut in center of hub. Some vehicles have a kotter pin in the shaft just in front of nut. If so, remove pin before nut. Next, you will need to loosen a few bolts that hold the strut to the hub assembly. Once you have hub free from strut, turn the hub either left or right while having someone push in on the cv joint while turning joint left or right. Doing so will allow the joint to slide out of hub. Next, using a pry bar, insert between end of transaxle and transmission and pry out. To install new axle, align the axle with transmission and slide into transmission. Carefully work the other end of axle into the center of the hub assembly. Once you have it in the hub, tap gently with a rubber mallet until you hear it "pop" into transmission. Once it is in transmission, replace the bolts connecting the hub to strut. Replace nut on center or cv joint and tighten just until it seats against the hub...do not overtighten. Replace kotter pin with new pin. Slide the rotor over the studs, replace caliper and brake pads, install wheel and you are done.

Need help changing brake pads and routers on 2003


Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
    1. Remove or disconnect the following:
    2. Front brake caliper guide pin bolts
    • Brake caliper by slowly sliding it up and off the adapter and brake rotor. Support the caliper out of the way with a strong piece of wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose or damage to the brake hose will result.
    1. If necessary, compress the caliper piston into the bore using a C-clamp. Insert a suitable piece of wood between the C-clamp and caliper piston to protect the piston.
    2. Outboard disc brake pad from the caliper by prying the brake pad retaining clip over the raised area on the caliper. Slide the brake pad down and off the caliper.
    • Inboard disc brake pad from the caliper by pulling the brake pad away from the caliper piston until the retaining clip on the pad is free from the caliper piston cavity
  • To install:
    1. Be sure the caliper piston has been completely retracted into the piston bore of the caliper assembly. This is required when installing the brake caliper equipped with new brake pads.
    2. If equipped, remove the protective paper from the noise suppression gaskets on the new disc brake pads.
    3. Install or connect the following:
      • New inboard disc brake pad into the caliper piston by pressing the pad firmly into the cavity of the caliper piston. Be sure the new inboard brake pad is seated squarely against the face of the brake caliper piston.
      • Outboard disc brake pad by sliding it onto the caliper assembly
      • Brake caliper assembly over the brake rotor and onto the steering knuckle adapter
      • Caliper guide pin bolts and torque to: 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) on 2002–04 models or 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm) on 2005 models
      • Front. Apply the brake pedal several times until a firm pedal is obtained.
    4. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add fluid as necessary. Road-test the vehicle.

    For the rotors:

    1. Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.

    Good night please how can I change brake from my car saturn 1997 fron will



    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    Front Disc Brakes
    See Figures 1 through 8
    Always replace the brake pads in sets, meaning BOTH front wheels.
    1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it safely using jackstands, then remove the front wheels.
    2. Remove the lower caliper lock pin.

    The Saturn brake pad replacement procedure states that after removing the lower caliper pin, you can simply pivot the caliper to a vertical position in order to remove the brake pads. This procedure, when attempted on a 1992 SC with ABS, looked as if it would place excessive stress on the brake line. No changes in steering position seemed to alleviate this tension, so a full pivot for pad removal was not attempted. Another option is to remove the upper caliper pin, but not the lower pin, and simply pivot the caliper down for possible access. However, to prevent damage to the brake line you may wish to remove both guide pins and support the caliper assembly from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
    1. Pivot the caliper up or down on either guide pin or remove both guide pins and support the caliper from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
    2. Remove the 2 brake pads and the pad clips from the caliper support Discard the old pad clips.
    3. Check the caliper pins, pin boots and the piston boot for deterioration or damage.

    To install:
    1. Either by hand or using a C-clamp, bottom the piston all the way into the caliper bore.
    2. Carefully lift the inner edge of the piston boot by hand to release any trapped air.
    3. Install new pad clips into the caliper support.
    4. Install the inner and outer brake pads into the support. If installed, remove the temporary support wire from the caliper.
    5. Pivot or position the caliper body on the upper guide pin into position. Compress the boots by hand as the caliper is positioned onto the support.
    6. Lubricate the smooth ends of the lock and guide pins with silicone grease, then install the pin and tighten to 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm). Do not get grease on the pin threads.
    7. Repeat the procedure for the opposite side brake pads.

    I need instructions to change the breaks (front & back) on a 2004 Hyundai Sonata.


    Front brakes are simple, back brakes are a little harder. What you need is a C-clamp and some metric open ended wrenches. Lift the car and the hood, remove the tire, and open the cover on the brake fluid reservoir. Disengage the parking brake if back brakes are hydrolic. Loosen the 2 bolts that hold the caliper on and remove both pads. Compress piston with C-Clamp. If 2 piston, use a piece of wood or something that you can apply even pressure to both pistons. Be careful not to fracture the piston or rubber seal. Just be extra cautious when collapsing piston. Use a towel or anything to absorb the metal to metal force. Insert the new brake pads applying a small amount of blue grease to the back of the pad first.
    Install assembled caliper. Repeat for second front. The back brakes, if drum, require more parts to pull apart. My suggestion is to lift the whole back of the car. Remove both drums, might be tough, loosen adjuster gear and pull both brake pads off. Assemble compare to other side.
