How do I replace the rear disc pads

Hi,

My brake pads are down to zero. So I'm on my front brake for now. Garage cant do it till Thursday - 2 days away. Cost to have it done is approx £60 - £15 for the pads. So I'm looking to do it myself.
I am expert/confident on replacing Bicycle stuff having done it for the kids for the last few more years than I care to admit...!

I used to work on cars as a younger man - again a few more years than I care to remember.

Whats involved is the basic question...

many thanks in anitcipation...

Hi Mark,
Its basically easy to replace the brake pads, remove the brake pads, since you have some mechanical idea ..by looking to the rear caliper you will figure out as to how to go about it.
Once you have removed the pads just check the caliper pistons for blurr and rust or pitting,a 2005 model i guess it must still be in good condition, but not bad to inspect it.
If its not in good condition thn you shopud overhaul it.

Hope this helps!

I've checked the lines. They're clear and there is no air or crud in them. I am using the right fluid. The breaks aren't dragging. But as I go down the street, the front break is engaging itself. Why?


Hi Tonyna, pull your front brake caliper and inspect for contaminated or damaged piston otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Master cylinder reservoir low on fluid.
2. Brake system contains air bubbles.
3. Brake pads contaminated with grease or oil.
4. Master or wheel cylinder piston is worn or parts damaged.
5. Brake pads badly worn (.040" minimum thickness).
6. Brake disc badly worn or warped.
7. Brake fades due to heat buildup-brake pads dragging or excessive braking.
8. Brake drags-insufficient brake pedal free play.
9. Wrong DOT # brake fluid in master cylinders.
Good luck and have a nice day.

I replaced the rear brake disc pads, and now i have no brake pressure. The pedal wont give any pressure to move the pads.Whats the best way to bleed them?


HI FIRST OFF CLAMP THE BRAKE HOSE CLOSE TO THE MASTER CILINDER AS YOU CAN IF YOU HAVE RUBBER BRAKE LINES, YOU CANT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE BRAIDED OR SIM HOSES.
WITH THE CLAMP ON YOU SHOULD HAVE A GOOD SOLID PEDAL, IF THIS IS THE CASE,, UNDO THE BLEED NIPPLE ON THE REAR CALIPER, USE A PIPE TO CATCH THE FLUID, WHILE PUSHING DOWN ON THE PEDAL, GENTLY RELEASE THE PRESURE OF THE CLAMP, NOT ALL THE WAY THIS WILL ALOW YOU TO FORCE THE FLUID PAST THE CLAMP, BEFORE YOU ALOW THE PEDAL TO RETURN RE APPLY THE PRESURE ON THE CLAMP, REPEAT THIS SEVERAL TIMES TILL THE FLUID STARTS CUMING OUT OF THE NIPPLE, THEN TIGHTEN THE NIPPLE REMOVE THE CLAMP AND PROCEED TO BLEED IN THE NORMAL WAY TO REMOVE ANY FURTHER AIR WHICH MAY BE IN THE SYSTEM,

To check my disc brake shoes


You can peek in the top of the caliper and see how big the pads are. If they are gone or real small, replace them. But don't wait till they start grinding. My bike is 8 years old, 17,000 miles, never replaced the front pads, and that's all I use. Hope this helps.
