Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic

1 Answer

I changed the front tire on a 1999 flhtcui and put the wheel back together the same way it came apart, now the left brake pad outside pad holder barely fits between the fork and the brake disk, when i torque every thing down, it locks up the tire. I did make sure that the pin on the inside was in the groove of the washer on the other side of the caliper.

Sounds like you have left out the spacer on the axle!
Recheck it!

How do I remove and replace front brake disc pads for a 1998 Nissan Presage 2.4 Litre cylinder


Jack the car corner your working on, remove the wheel/tire, use a c-clamp to squeeze the brake caliper and outside pad together pushing all the fluid back to master cylinder, remove the 2 slide bolts attaching the caliper to the bracket, slide the caliper off, replace the pads, pit the caliper back on and tighten the 2 slide bolts, now pump the brake pedal to get the fluid back into the caliper, put the wheel/tire back on and back on the ground. Same with other side. Your only problem is finding the c-clamp you need that's just large enough to squeeze the piston back in to begin with. Place the c-frame on the back of the caliper and the screw in part on the outer brake pad and turn it in till it stops. Gives you lots of room for removal and new pads will fit right in.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

The front brake wont release to install the tire. please help!!!


Remove the front wheel at the axel and move it around so that the front brake pads can be pushed closer together. Once you push the brake pads, the cable should have enough slack to allow one end to come out of the holder. Now the brake pads should be able to spread far apart so you can remove the wheel/tire assembly.

Tools req. and approx difficulty level(1-10)for brake check and change pads please on toyota previa 2.3 petrol 7 seater


to check the brakes you can look through the wheel to see the pad thickness(1/8th min)then run you finger over the disc(rotor)to make sure you don have to much of a lip around the edge.(1/32 max.)as rotors only last around 40k and pads around 30k, i would change both together,difficulty 3/10 for diy mech.tools req pliers/mole grips(to grip brake pipe)/tyre iron(to force pistons apart,take off filler cap first)phillips screwdriver to take out screw in rotor,and a hammer
to release rotor from rust on the back of it.a range of metric spanners/sockets.to remove caliper from bracket and copper grease for the back of the new pads(to stop them squeeking).
put together the opposite of taking them apart,keep all bits in hubcap on top of wheel(you never have bits left over if you do this...)and prise apart pistons before you take caliper off the car,then apply molegrip to rubber pipe so they dont close up.

Hello my dad has a 1100 sporster any way we took the front tire off and we should of marked how every thang goes back togeather we cant get the tire back on right anyone have any answers what side the...


If you have no idea where the spacers went ,then try them on any way ,You will know if they are in the right position as the disc break will only line up one way .and when you spin the wheel it should run fairly free .If it binds then its not right .

How do I change brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. Are there any guides available


Yes, You can buy a manual at your lacal parts store.
However, It's not that hard. But , you didn't say if you
need to change the front or rear pads?
I'll assume your refering to the front.
1st You'll need to jack up the car if you only have one
Jack then, pick the side you are too start say left front.
Jack the car up like chainging a tire BUT, Jack the car
up but, leave the tire touching the ground with, some weight
still on the tire with a lug rench turn the lug nuts JUST enought
to loosin the nut DO NOT take the nut off, maybe 1/4 " only.
Do the same on the others. Now, Jack up the car until the tire
is off the ground. NOW, Put a Jack Stand under the car never
NOT use a stand. Remove the nuts and tire.
Turn the wheel to the right it will give you more room to work.
You'll need to remove the caliper that holds the pads on.
There are two screws that hold the caliper on. I believe,
there 13mm remove the screws (Take them all the way OUT)
Remove, The caliper the pads, will stay in the holder.
Remove, the pads you may need a screw driver to get the
pads out.There are two pads that have a scencer on them
one for each side PUT that pad on the inside holder.( sencer down)
NOW rember you need, too make room for te new pads.
You need a c- clamp to push the piston BACK into the
bottom of the caliper. Be sure the piston is at the bottom of the caliper
or the caliper will NOT fit back on. Install the new pads into the holder.
.Then, put the caliper back on to it's mount over the new pads.
Put the two caliper bolts back and, your done.
Reverse, the infromation from the top.

How to change brake pads on 1996 roadmaster


Disc brakes I assume on the front of the car? If so.

1. take off front wheel.
2. remove 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on the rotor.
3. slide the caliper off the rotor and remove old brake pads.
4. take a C-clamp and put it so you can press the piston back in on the caliper so it is almost all the way in. (Caliper = The round shaft that is on the inside of the rotor that pushes out the pads causing the resistance).
5. Check the condition of the rotor. If it is smooth and doesn't have too much of a lip on the outside of the rotor(both inside and outside of rotor), then put the pads on the caliper and put it back together.
6. If rotor is rough or has grooves in it then take the two bolts out so you can remove the caliper bracket from the wheel assembly. Tap on the rotors till they loosen up an replace them.

Good Luck...you can do it

Changing the front brake pads.


first off, you need to buy the break pads, break caliper spreader, and you need to know if the bolts have a allen wrench head or a torques head, you can find that out by turning your wheel all the way to the left after you remove the front left tire, take a small hand mirror and look on the back side of the calliper, once you know what it is, you need the socket or wrench that fits it, remove the bolts, then the calliper will pull off by wiggleing it off, then remove the outside pad, take the break calliper spreader and place it the way the break pad sat and screw it pushing the calliper cylinder back as far as possible, then take the calliper spreader off and remove the other pad, install the new pads into the break calliper and replace the calliper back onto the router, (the round disc the calliper was on) line up the holes on the calliper and replace the bolts.......once you have put the calliper back on you must pump the peddle untill they are hard again, about 3-6 times or untill you cant go to the floor anymore. once they are solid again, replace your tire and you should be good to go.....................hope this helps.

Got a guy to change break pads for me on my car. breaks now drag


i assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably shoes..is it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together wrong..id say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!
