1985 harley FLT brake caliper removal.

I have removed the saddle bag, saddle bag mounting frame (to get the battery box out of the way), brake anchor, pin bolts, and pins. The manual just states to remove the caliper, but the caliper is not coming off.

Most likely the pads are in the disc groove, just pull upwards with a bit of force, this is normal . also you can push the caliper sideways by hand to try and push the piston in a bit first

How to back the brakes off on a 2001 pontiac grand am so I can replace with new brake pads


Welcome to Fixya

Please see procediure below:

  • 1

    Disconnect the negative battery cable. Using a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool, drain two third of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Raise the Grand AM up and secure it on jackstands. Remove the wheel assembly.

  • 2

    Remove the caliper from the steering knuckle. Using mechanic's wire suspend the caliper from the frame of the vehicle. Avoid having the caliper dangle or hang from the brake hose or it will result in the brake line being damaged. Remove both the inboard and outboard brake pads. To unseat the clip tilt the inboard pad out at the top.

  • 3

    Remove the outboard pad. Release the mounting dowel from the hole in the caliper by pushing the outside pad in an inward motion. Pull the inboard pad outward to remove it from the caliper.

  • 4

    Install the inboard pad. Make sure that the spring clip engages in the caliper position. Install the outboard pad over the caliper end. Make sure that the mounting dowels snap into the mounting holes in the caliper. Install the caliper over the rotor onto steering knuckle.

  • 5

    Insert the caliper mounting bolts and sleeves. Torque the bolts to 23-ft. lbs. Reconnect the wheel assembly. Add brake fluid. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.

  • 6

    Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times to seat the brake pads. Test drive the vehicle at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.

    Need to replace rear brakes on 2008 street glide harley davidson


    it's pretty straight forward. remove saddle bag, remove the 2 allen bolts that hold the caliper to bracket slide caliper up off of disc. then remove the small 3/16 allen bolt this is the pad pin that hold the pad. before you remove the pads turn caliper upside down and with a large screwdriver put it betweenthe old pads and trist it to push the piston back in the caliper this will give you room for the new pads. then just lift the old pads out and put in the new and reinstall the pad pin and caliper back on bracket install the 2 bolts removed first and tighten good. if you need any more help just ask.

    I need to know the procedure for r and r on a front rotor if this is something that can be done at home with limited tools?


    1999 Taurus/Sable Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1999 Taurus/Sable Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Procedure revision date: 06/25/1998 Disc Removal
    1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
    1. Remove wheel and tire assembly. Be careful to avoid damage or interference with caliper bleeder screw fitting and front disc brake rotor shield (2K004).
    1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Handle front disc brake rotor (1125) and disc brake caliper (2B120) assembly in such a way as to prevent deformation of front disc brake rotor , and nicking, scratching or contamination of brake linings/rotor surfaces.
      NOTE: To prevent damage, do not allow disc brake caliper to hang by the front brake hose (2078) .


      Remove caliper anchor plate bolts and discard. Position disc brake caliper out of the way. Prevent separation of caliper housing from anchor bracket because contamination of guide pin journals can occur.
    1. NOTE: If excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for runout prior to installation.


      If additional force is required to remove front disc brake rotor , apply Rust Penetrant and Inhibitor F2AZ-19A501-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C56-A on front and rear rotor/hub mating surfaces. First, strike front disc brake rotor between lug bolts (1107) with a plastic hammer. If this does not work, attach 2-3 Jaw Puller 205-D027 (D80L-1013-A) or equivalent and remove front disc brake rotor . Remove front disc brake rotor from wheel hub (1104) assembly by pulling it off the lug bolts.
    Installation
    1. If original front disc brake rotor is being installed, make sure rotor braking and mounting surfaces are clean.
    1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure to clean rust and foreign material from rotor and hub mounting faces when installing new or old front disc brake rotors will result in high rotor runout, which will speed up the development of brake roughness shudder vibration.
      Apply a small amount of Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A to pilot diameter of front disc brake rotor.
    1. Install front disc brake rotor on wheel hub assembly.
    1. Install disc brake caliper and new caliper anchor bracket bolts on front disc brake rotor . Tighten caliper anchor bracket bolts to 88-118 Nm (65-87 lb-ft).
    1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Failure to tighten lug nuts (1012) in a star pattern may result in high rotor runout, which will speed up the development of brake roughness, shudder and vibration.
      Install wheel and tire assembly on vehicle. Tighten lug nuts to 115-142 Nm (85-104 lb-ft) using Rotunda Accutorq® Lug Nut Socket 164-R0303 or equivalent on a 1/2 inch air impact wrench, or use a torque wrench.
    1. Lower vehicle.
    1. Pump brake pedal prior to moving vehicle to position brake linings.
    1. Road test vehicle.

    I am replacing the rear pads and cannot get the caliper to compress using a c-clamp. Is there something special I need to do or know on my montego 05 car to get the caliper to compress? Sincerely Desperate...


    One, take your brake fluid reservoir cap off.
    Two, use a thin piece of wood to help you compress the piston on the caliper....do it slow. This way, you don't create a lot of pressure to the reservoir and it won't overflow.
    Three, these are the steps to removing and replacing the pads for the rear. It does mention a special tool....but you can use a c-clamp for the same purpose:

    Rear To Remove:
    1. Check the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir.
    2. If required, remove the fluid until the brake master cylinder reservoir is half full. CAUTION
      Care must be taken when servicing rear brake components without disconnecting the parking brake cable from the brake caliper lever.
    3. Remove the disc brake caliper. Support the caliper with mechanic's wire. CAUTION
      When the brake pads are separated from the brake caliper, new brake pads must be installed. The brake pads are one-time use only.
    4. Remove and discard the brake pads and spring clips from the brake caliper anchor plate. NOTE: Do not remove the anchor plate guide pins. The guide pins are press fit to the brake caliper anchor plate. If the guide pins are damaged a new anchor plate must be installed.
    5. Inspect the brake caliper anchor plate assembly.
    6. Check the guide pins and boots for binding or damage.
    7. Install a new brake caliper anchor plate if it is worn or damaged.
    To Install:
    NOTE: The left caliper piston turns clockwise and the right caliper piston turns counterclockwise.
    1. Using the special tool, turn and compress the brake caliper piston into the cylinder.
    2. Clean the residual adhesive from the brake caliper fingers and pistons using the specified brake parts cleaner. CAUTION
      Do not allow grease, oil, brake fluid or other contaminants to contact the brake pad or caliper mating surface. Do not install contaminated pads.
      NOTE: Install all the new hardware supplied with brake pad kit.
    3. Install the new spring clips and brake pads.
    4. Position the brake caliper and install the 2 bolts. Tighten caliper bolts to 23 ft-lbs (31 Nm).
    5. If necessary, fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with clean brake fluid.
    6. With the engine running, apply pressure on the brake pedal to seat the brake pads.
    7. Test the brakes for normal operation.

    Seat removal


    The strap that goes around the seat bolts to the fender under the fender it's self or to the sides near the front of the fender struts or behind the saddle bags if you have them.
    They are usually held on by either an allen bolt or a capped hex bolt.
    If it is attached under the seat it is held by 1 bolt through both ends to 1 hole.
