How to replace front brake pads on a How to replace front brake pads on a 2000 Chevy S10 4WD pickup?


First you want to remove brake fluid from brake resovoir, raise front wheels off ground and set park brake or block rear wheels. Remove front wheels, keep steering wheel unlocked so you can turn rotors side to side. Loosen bolts that hold caliper end gently pry caliper free from rotor, remove caliper and remove pads, use bungy cord to hang caliper away from rotor, have rotors measured to see if they are thick enough to have machined, replace if out of specs. Match up pads with old ones, use anti- squeak red liquid and put layer on back of pads, let dry. Use tool to put pistons back into calipers, slowly put pistons back into bore while opening up bleeder screw so ABS won't be damaged. After rotors resurfaced, wash with rubbing alchohal to remove any oils from hands, install rotors and reverse putting pads back onto caliper and reinstall, torque caliper bolts to factory specs and tighten bleeder screws. Install wheels, torque lug nuts to factory specs and replace brake fluid in resovoir. Lower car carefully to ground and press brake peddle without pumping it. Any air in system should bleed out, if not get someone to help with bleeding system. Road test to ensure no squeaks or pulling, burn brakes in slowly.

98 Plymouth voyager brake issues


You never replace only one caliper

You do both sides

Bleeders are mounted to top of caliper

Have a helper in drivers seat to slowly
press brake pedal as you open & close
bleeders

Start at back & do all 4 corners

The master takes care of it's self

I have replaced the front brakes and right front 98 ford tarus.


typically if you pump the brakes and it gets harder by each pump the master cylinder is good.Check all calipers for leaks,and rubber hoses..still no signs of leaks then open the bleeder screws on both front calipers and let them drip for about 15 minutes,and keeping the resivoir full of fluid..tighten the bleeders and pump them up..hopefully they work and all it was is a little air in them still.

I need to know how to bleed the brakes on a 1999 chevy blazer


Start from right rear, then, left rear, right front, left front. Fill master cylinder. Have helper sit in car, have helper hold brake pedal down. open bleed screw. fluid and air comes out. close screw. release brake pedal. Continue until no air comes out. Move to next wheel. Keep an eye on master cylinder fluid level after each wheel.

1990 chev 1/2 ton two wheel drive, left front brake sticking, sometimes, now pulls to right when brakes applied. took off left caliber and sprayed with brake cleaner and that seemed to help. but still not...


The Quickest way to fix this is to Replace that Caliper. If you don't have the Dough right Now----Take the Caliper off, and Compress the Cylinder Back into the Caliper While Turning the Bleeder Valve Slowly, When no more Brake fluid Comes out of the Bleeder Valve Tighten Back and Reinstall the Caliper and Pump the Brake Pedal to ReSeat the Cylinder. Sometimes this works on the Chevy Trucks!

Front disc brakes


Probably a restriction in the brake line from the master cylinder to the wheel.

Most of the time brake hoses do this (collapsed hose or hose inner liner) but the restriction could be anywhere from the point your front brake pressure divides to both wheels to the caliper of the wheel. The problem is not the caliper itself because the bleeder is able to relieve the pressure.
