The hand brake is not designed to pump brake fluid to the rear pads. The hand brake/emergency brake is a cable driven system with shoes in the drum that is the center of the rotor. Please do us all a favor and take your car to a reliable mechanic.

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.

Why do the rear wheels get very hot at hwy speed after only 20 mi?


Replace the rear brake hose/s. They deteriorate on the inside and clog up. Not letting the calipers or cylinders to release. I recommend replacing the front and rear.

How do i change brake pads on a 2003 dodge


You have air in the brake system and you will have to bleed the brakes.This will take time but if you keep your eye on the fluid level and then open the bleeder screw on one caliper at a time and let about 1 to 2 cups of fluid come out of each side you should get the air out of the system to regain your brakes.

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.

Front Rotoe removal 1990 Toyota 3Runner


Take off the disk pad, release the pressure.
1. Loss the brake fluid small fitting on the cylinder, then use one hand slowly loss the fitting and use another hand with flat screw driver pressure the brake pad toward the piston of the cylinder AT THE SAME TIME , as soon as you release the pad a little bit, close the fitting right away, DO NOT LET THE AIR GET INTO YOUR BRAKE LINE. After you release the pad, TIGHT the fitting.

2. Take off two screws behind the cylinder which connected to the body and remove the cylinder first and then take off the rotor.

3. When you put back, don’t touch the fitting, after you finish it, check everything is O.K. then start the car, pump the brake several times, until you feel the brake is normal.


For your safety, use emergency brake and also put something behind your rear wheel to completely stable the car.

Good luck, hope this can help you.
