When i mash brake pedal,the stearing wheel pulls to the right and makes a wining noise in fire wall.as well sitting still, truck running,when i mash the brake pedal and try to turn the stearing it s h


If you replaced the Brake line on the left and it's pulling to the right you may need to replace that brake line as well. As far as sitting still, that sounds like the power steering pump.

I need step by step info to replace my front brakes for a 04 xter


I suggest that you visit the autozone.com website and register the car. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to an online repair manual for the car. Pretty handy. The steps for replacing the brakes should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Right front brake engages but doesnt disengage. master cylinder is basically new put it on then parked it for two years now this is happening.


Have you removed, checked,cleaned & lubed calipers? FYI , After sitting for 2 years, all brakes should be inspected, clean & lubed, as well as conditions of fluid lines.

Rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding


Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.
