First push back the pads fully ! remove dust cover if there is one , remove clips from the pins that hold the pads in place then the pins and then remove the pads ! clean the area where the pads slide witha file gently ! see if pads fit freely then put a small amount of copperslip on the edges of the pads , fit pads , pins , clips and pump up the brakes ( first make sure the fluid is full then after you pump up , top up ) ! bed the pads in for a few miles using the brakes more than usual ! Bobs your aunty !

2000 buick lesabre with abs-low brake pedal after changing all 4 rotors and pads. did not open the hydraulic system

When changing pads and you push the caliper in for the new pad you should open the bleed screws. , then close and re-assemble. press pedal and open bleed screw and let it drip a little . gravity bleed. Did you turn the read caliper piston in and then press it down? The rear piston must be aligned with the pad. Did you pump the parking brake to reset?

The brake and abs lights are on in my 2003 bmw 530i what can this be from?

You may need to replace your brake pads and one of your sensors on the wheels.

If it has a problem, then you will get the abs light.

The best way to proceed is a get a computer read out and also look at your brake pads before proceeding with changing them.

Can i change breake pads without bleeding brakes as i have read on net that I can compress caliper pistons without opening resevoir and or bleeding lines

Brake pad replacement does not involve brake fluid loss or air entrainment in the brake lines. It is a good idea to loosen the lid on the master cylinder reservoir while you compress each piston. It may make it a bit easier to do. If you do put a rag around the reservoir in the rare event there is slight spillage. Use a small block of wood or an old brake pad as a protective caul to cover the piston end in the caliper, Use a C-clamp or similar tool to gently compress the piston back into the caliper head. When initially positioning the C-clamp, pay close attention to where it will grip on the back of the caliper so you do not inadvertently damage other parts. Once you are all done with the pads check the reservoir and top off with a little fresh brake fluid if necessary. Be sure to securely fasten the lid to the brake fluid reservoir.
