1988 CHRYSLER LEBARON HOW DO THE PADS COME OUT OF THE CALIPER


John Doe, The only thing that might be holding them are spring clips, either on the outside of caliper-pry them off-, or a clip inside the caliper bore-this kind, you just pull the pad out. A little rust or corrosion may be all that's holding them tight. Do you see any other retainers holding them in the caliper?

How do you hold brake pads in the caliper to get it over the rotor?


If the pads go in to the caliper there are clips on the pads. The inside pad clip fits inside the piston and the outside pad sort of clamps on the caliper. BUT, I just changed pads on an explorer, which is smaller and the pads fit inside the groves on the caliper bracket.

My 1993 toyota pickup the front brakes are sticking i replaced everything but the boster and the poportioning vavle


Did you replace the rubber flex hose on the
front. They collapse inside or the clip holding
them on the outside if it has one rust and squeeze
off the hose.

Are the caliper pistons rusted and not releasing

Did you remove all rust from pad and caliper
sliding areas and use anti-seize

How easy it to change front brake pads on a toyota rav 4


not hard at all.remove tires.then remove 2 screws either 12mm or 14mm that hold the brake caliper in place.remove caliper but DO NOT disconnect the brake line from the caliper.get a C-CLAMP in order to get the caliper piston pushed back in.remove old brake pads and install new ones in the same order as the old ones were removed.you will want to check the rotors to make sure they are in good condition before you install the new pads,then put caliper back on and tighten screws to specs.do the same on the other side and always remember to PUMP YOUR BRAKE PEDAL A FEW TIMES IN ORDER FOR THE CALIPER PISTONS TO ENGAGE ON THE NEW PADS. hope this info helps.good luck and take care, manny

How to change brake pads on 1996 roadmaster


Disc brakes I assume on the front of the car? If so.

1. take off front wheel.
2. remove 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on the rotor.
3. slide the caliper off the rotor and remove old brake pads.
4. take a C-clamp and put it so you can press the piston back in on the caliper so it is almost all the way in. (Caliper = The round shaft that is on the inside of the rotor that pushes out the pads causing the resistance).
5. Check the condition of the rotor. If it is smooth and doesn't have too much of a lip on the outside of the rotor(both inside and outside of rotor), then put the pads on the caliper and put it back together.
6. If rotor is rough or has grooves in it then take the two bolts out so you can remove the caliper bracket from the wheel assembly. Tap on the rotors till they loosen up an replace them.

Good Luck...you can do it

How to replace brake pads and rotors


It is pretty straight forward. The Ranger has front disc brakes.
If possible spray everything with brake cleaner to reduce asbestos dust as you work on the brakes. Best not to breathe in any of the nasty debris on the brakes and caliper. If I have them I wear nitril gloves for less mess on the hands.
Take the wheel off. The caliper holds the brake pads. On mine it is a large allen bolt at the inside of the caliper to take it off. You don't have to remove both allen bolts--take off one and then loosen the other. THer caliper can then be rotated off the rotor. Now you can remove the rotor--it may have a screw holding it on still--remove that and pull it off the wheel hub.(Sometimes they can be stuck on, but they pretty much are just hanging onto the wheel hub studs) Do one at a time and then if you have any issues, look at the other one. The brake pads themselves kind of snap into place in the caliper. Remove the old ones noting any orientation issues and any shims--some of them come with thin plate shims that fit behind them. When you are ready to replace the pads, you need to use a clamp to drive the caliper piston back so that the pads on the cliper will fit onto the new rotor when they are rotated back. Make sure the bolts on the caliper are tight.
There rear are less essential since most of the stopping is from the front--let me know if this helps to push my rating up.

Brake pads


buy an 8 in C clamp. remove the wheel, take the cover off the brake fluid resovoir, use the C clamp to depress the piston back into the caliper. you do this by placing one side on the metal housing of the caliper, and the other on the edge of the brake pad you can see. there are two bolts which have allen wrench heads that you have to remove. enjoy
1)jack truck up
2)remove wheel
3)remove both 12 mm bolts holding the caliper on
4)pry caliper off..... do not damage the piston boot
5)hang the caliper somewhere using a bungee cord or a bent up coat hanger. DON't just let it hang there.. on an old line this will tear it or cause it to collapse inside.
6)Use the tool mentioned above to reset the piston into caliper. Don't worry brake fluid will leak out of the master cylinder lid...no worries if it does if it didnt you were low on brake fluid to begin with.
7)remove the bolts in the caliper, as well as their cylinder like housings (sliders). clean them and lube them with silglide/ or lubricant that came with pads. Lubricate the backings of the pads aswell very lightly. reinstall the sliders and bolts.
8)pry the old pads off the caliper, install the new ones.
9)if the rotors are being changed they should come off. there maybe OE clips on the lugs nuts holding them off, otherwise they should just fall off..if not persuade them with a hammer. Put the new rotors on

9)remove the stainless steel clips from the caliper bracket, put the new ones on and lubricate them on the outside (any part that will have the pads riding on them). The idea is to help the pads slide in and out when installed.
10) install the caliper that has been loaded with fresh pads. if it does not fit take the pads off, and reset the caliper piston further. Sometimes the calipers sliders are blocking the caliperfrom being seated right if this is the case take the caliper off the rotor and push the sliders in.
11)bolt the caliper back up and your done
12)before you drive you need to pump the brake pedal till it gets hard. if you do not do this, the truck will NOT HAVE any brakes for like 10 full pumps. so pump the brakes before droping out the jack and driving off

1999 Toyota 4Runner .front brakes


To change these pads is simple. You first should wash down the area with brake clean so you don't inhale the dust. Then they are to pins that go through the top of the pads and the caliper. (This Caliper has pistons on bothsides) You them remove the metal clips that hold those two pins. with a needle nose pliers. after removing the clips you will be able to remove the two pins and remove pads. Using the old pads in place you can then push back the piston to make room for the new pads.
