You will need to bleed the brakes once you are done to get the air out of the lines.
if you need help chaing them please comment back. also you will have to bleed the breaks in a certain order.
start at the passanger side rear than move to the drivers side rear than the passangers side front than the drivers side front.

Any helpful hints to changing rear brakes in a 90/tracker, I've successfully changed the front brakes but they were disk not drum


You'll need special tools to accomplish that. Use a brake dust spray to clean the parts before you disassemble anything. That way you won't inhale a lot of brake dust. Some auto parts stores will loan or rent the special tools necessary to do the job on your particular model.

How to change the brakes on an 2005 Audi A6 I know you need a special tool to change the rear pads. But I only want to change the front pads. Is this something I can do myself or do I need to take to Audi...


The front pads are like all other cars, a rachet and a C Clamp. The special tool is sold at your local parts store, its a box with tips on it, as they screw in.

Replacing disc brakes on a 2000 v.w jetta


When I changed my sisters VW Jetta I used the follow:
  1. Lug Wrench
  2. Ratchet
  3. Socket to fit the caliper bolts (can't remember size)
  4. C-Clamp to push the piston back in
  5. Bucket to set the caliper on while changing the pads
On the rear brakes I had to borrow the special tool to push in rear disc brakes from AutoZone, this tool spins the piston while pushing it back in.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and thanks for using FixYa!

Rear Brakes 2005 Jetta


im sorry bro i find that you needing special tools a load of bs. i may be wrong but i really really doubt it. brakes are easy. first locate the caliper and there should be 2 bolts holding that tight. loosen the top bolt and then take out the lower bolt from the caliper. the old pads should just fall out. remove the master cylinder cap. (the jug with brake fluid in it.) compress the piston replace the old pads and push the claiper back down on the rotor. tighten bolts back up pump the brakes till hard with the car off and then repeat for the other side.

Need 2 change brakes on 94 cadillac deville


Brakes are something that most drivers should not attempt mostly because when you step ,on the brakes you want to stop. You don't say if you have caiper brakes all around or just on the front. I have worked on brakejobs for quite a few years and always do the calipers too. repairs are expensive nowadays as with most repair shops. most shops charge one for things that they don't change so it is expensive. To do a brake job properly one needs specialized tools and know how.

On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.
