The brake pads slide (move back and forth) on the caliper as you apply and let off the brakes. Clean this area well, and apply the special lubricant provided to ensure smooth operation of brakes. Be careful not to get any on the rotor and pad surfaces. countrycurt0

My 2000 Dodge caravan's brakes are screeching after I changed them. Its only been 2 months since I changed them and its becoming very annoying. Changed the brakes and brake pads.


Your squeaking is likely due to heat buildup as you are driving. This happens mostly during stop and go driving in town or while commuting to work. The pads don't pull away from the rotor when driving and end up dragging against it which keeps the rotor from cooling properly between stops. You can get a glue like substance from the parts house to apply between the backs of the pads and the caliper which helps the pads pull away from the rotor when you arent actually braking. Where did you buy your parts? I have learned the hard way that the "bargain" parts houses sell parts that are made from less than quality materials. The lower standard parts can have pot metal etc in them which also contributes to the problem.

I have a 2006 f-250, i have a grinding noise that sounds like it is coming from the rear wheels, but when i apply the brakes it stops. what could this be?


Are your brake pads worn? They will have a small metal tab on one of the pads on each side. These are referred to squeeker tabs. They let you know when your pads are worn enough to need changed before you get metal to metal part failure. They are designed to barely scrape against the rotor when the brakes are not applied and make an annoying noise. I would look again and make sure all rear pads are in good shape. If they are you might clean the brakes, sometimes a piece of dirt or debris can make the same noise. If you have one pad that is worn more than the rest make sure you clean and grease the caliper slide pins when you change the pads. Actually, you always want to make sure you clean and grease the slides when you do a brake job.

I want to change my front brake pads How do I remove the old ones


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
For front brake pads. You should buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

I am trying to change the brakes on a 2000 dodge neon and i need directions.


I assume just the front brakes?
You will need brake pads, brake cleaner, a small packet of brake grease, a large 4 inch C clamp, and possibly new rotors if the old ones are bad (abnormal wear or it they are out of spec).
Start by jacking up the car one one side after placing the car in park and putting the parking brake on. Remove one of the front tires. Now spray the brakes/caliper with the brake cleaner so that you won't be breathing in brake dust particles and this will help clean up the parts (try not to get the brake cleaner on plastic parts). The brake caliper holds on the brake pads with two large bolts that will be parallel with the axle. Remove these bolts. You should now be able to pull the caliper and brake pads off of the disc/rotor. Make sure not to wreck the brake line that runs to the caliper. Take off the outer brake pad. Now take the C clamp and use it to slowly depress the inner brake pad and caliper. Make sure you have the old brake pad on so as not to wreck the new one. Once depressed, remove the brake pad and put the new brake pads on. Make sure to then grease the two caliper bolts and reassemble the brake assembly. If you replace the disc/rotor, spray it first with the brake cleaner to clean off anything left from manufacturing. Repeat on the other side.
Make sure to pump the brakes before driving. Let me know how this works out for you.

But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!! For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2.

Brakes ,in front, act like the brakes are rubbing metal to metal but not all tyhe time....check the brake padsd and they are good


what you may be thinking is metal is just hard pads,,,or even dry pads? try striping the barkes out and putting a thin smear of "copper grease" on the back's of the brake pads before you refit them,,,,the copper grease stops the pads from screeming when you push the brake's down,,,,only put grease on the backs of the pads dont get any grease on the brake pad fronts!!!

I need to change my front brake disc on the passenger side. What tools and parts are going to needed?


The 1st thing you must know is you had best replace both sides for even braking and wear. New rotors will likley be needed. Brake pads and Calipers for both sides,A small tube of grease, might com with pads
The grease is used where pads contact the Backing plate. Use it sparingly.1 Small can of brake fluid to
top off master cylinder after you have bled the air out
of system. You will realize what tools are needed as
you proceed, 2 large C-Clamps will likley be needed.
Wrenches of various sizes.Side cutters to remove cotter keys & replace them. 1 or 2 Good floor jacks.
Use jack stands for saftey.It will cost a little more
this way but it will last a lot longer done right.

How to change rear brake pads on audi a6 2006


Remove the tires, Remove the calaper bolts, (small heads on them 12mm or so) Remove calaper, Pads are setting in a holder. Lube new pads with litheum grease and place in holder. (look at old pads, one or both may have small metel tab on one end) If the new pads have the tab, put that pad where the old pad with the tab was. (ie. tab to the inside) Press pistion in with a 'C' clamp. If it won't go in easly, it may screw in. If the parking brake cable is hooked to the calaper, it probly screws in. Use large pliers to screw in calaper piston. Place calaper over pads and install bolts (lube bolts) Rember to pump brakes befor driving . to get a solid peddle.
