Question about 2003 kawasaki KX 250

2 Answers

In my 05 kx 250 my brake pads were really worn out, so i changed them, and i put everything back together and now theres no pressure in my brakes to move the piston in the caliper. What do i do? add more brake fluid? or did i not install the pads right? Although i have changed pads many times and never had a problem.

Maybe air in the line..

Bleed the line..
Open the master,, then open the slave & let it drain.. At the same time keep adding fliud to the master as needed - dont let it drain to low - keep it topped off..

After you think the entire line has been drained,, close the slave & be sure master is at the right level & close..

That will release any air - if that was the issue..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

Changing rear brakes on 2000 lincoln LS

You will need a special tool for the back brakes,Autozone will loan it to you for 60 bucks,you will get it back when you return,I used it.I replaced brake pads front and back and both back rotors.The driver side rear had metal on metal,all disc brakes,brake pads on that rear side were completely worn down to metal,the driver side was like new,kept wondering why,replaced both rear rotors,put back together,then then I noticed where brake line hose went into brake caliber was leaking,so that caused the side with new like brake pads not to be gripping disc putting all brake pressure of that one side,so the copper fitting their was bad,put new one on and leak stopped.

How to change the brake pads

Hi Patrick I'm Peter a Master Mechanic of 30 .Yes and if you are having to ask that it may be a good idea to have someone else do it or have a friend that is experienced to walk you through it. I am not being mean but you can get easily hurt or even killed if you do not have the required experience. The tires have to come off and the vehicle has to be properly set on stands not the car jack. Car jacks slip all the time and cars fall. The caliper then has to be removed and the old pads slid out and the new ones installed. There is a special tool you use to press the caliper piston slowly back into the caliper so that when you put the caliper back on it will easily slide over. Once everything is back together and tightened then you may have to bleed the brakes. Some vehicles with ABS brakes have to have special computers hooked to them to cycle the ABS pump. Standard brakes you have a little different procedure. Hope this helps you be safe.

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.

After you change brake pads on a 2004 F150 and put everything back together do you have to "bleed them" or do you just get in it and go? Or do you have to pump the brakes? Just not sure

As long as you do not open the system to where it can get air into it you should not have to bleed them, but you will want to pump them to get the pads back against the disks before you put the truck into gear or you will be pumping like mad until you do.

I have a F150 p/u 2000 for 10yrs. Each year I change the brake pads. But the rear pads still looks like new. The front pads are worn down. What can be causing the problem?

normally, you replace the rear brake pads every other change in the front brake pads. for your case, it seems that the front brakes are the only ones working.

bleed your brakes to check if rear brakes are still working. after bleeding, check your brake master if it puts pressure equally to the 4 brakes.

How to take pin holding rear brake pads on kx 250 2001

There should be a allen key plug to take out of the caliper then once this is out there will be another allen key head behind the plug to undo (this is the pin) just undo, take out and the pads should be able to be removed.
Pay close attention to the direction pads come out and any spacers between the pads and brake piston as you want them all back in exactly the same with the new pads they stop the pads from rattling around when riding
good luck regards Jamie

I have an 05 chevy silverado 1500 2wd 5.3L. my problem is i have now had to change the brakes (pads and roters) 3 times in 18 months. the brakes pulsate when pressed and they squelle really bad all the...

The squealing is from the pads rubbing back and forth against the piston, parts stores sell an anti squeal lube. As far as the even wear and the times changed, I would looking for non-functioning rear brakes. This can cause all braking to go to front, faster wear. Another check would be that the calipers and pistons are operating smoothly, a sticky piston can cause constant excessive pressure on pads and early failure.
