If I understand your question, you want to know if your front calper can be cut. I think you want to know about the disk, not the caliper. The caliper does the actual griping of the disk through the brake pads. The Disk can be cut just as an automotive disk can be cut. The pads will wear, no need to cut them.

If I have misinterperted your queston and you want to disassemble the caliper, forgive me please. While I am not familiar with all calipers, I believe at most, you will find a internal clip around the piston to prevent its coming our of the cylinder. Removal of the caliper from the bike will facilitate its manual disassembly.

One might ask why you want to do this procedure. One might guess it is failing due to corrosion. If this is the case on your 2006 machine, you may prefer to replace the caliper with a new one.

I hope I have answered your question. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com. I am equally sure other volunteer responders here at FixYa.com will have other ideas for you to consider.

Replacing brakes on 99 VW Passat. Please advise how to push in the brake piston so it will fit back on the rotor & brakes


The fronts compress with a C clamp. The rears have to be turned in with a caliper retraction tool. In both cases, be sure to remove the brake reservoir cap before resetting the calipers, and put it back on before touching the brake pedal. Pump the brakes to get pressure before taking your first drive.

What size bolt holds the brake and caliper on a 99 Volkswagon Passat


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

I have a 99 grand voyager and the drivers side front brake is squeling. I'm not sure how to do brakes, but was told I have disc brakes in the front and drum brakes on the rear. Should I replace the pads...


These brakes are a pretty easy fix. For the job pick up some cheap gloves, you'll need general hand tools, proper Brake Fluid (DOT 3?)some brake cleaner, a large C-clamp, new pads (front) and I'd replace the front rotors too. Place the van on jack stands, remove front tires, using some brake cleaner spray down the calipers, pay special attention to the boot around the piston to clean well (if heavy dirt is left on it, it can make for sticky caliper(s).) Place the C-Clamp ove the calliper to compressit (DO NOT TIGHTEN ON YET!) Loosen the bleeder screw on the back of the caliper and place a small tube on it, now slowly tighten on the C-clamp, this will cause the piston to gently push back in to the caliper, you'll note old fluid coming from the bleed screw. Once fully driven back (don't over tighten!) remove the C-clamp and caliper and clean up with spray. Remove and replace the rotor, install new pads (lubricate as needed) and reinstall the caliper. Repeat to other side; once done bleed brake system and replace with new brake fluid. Be carefull with brake fluid and with brake cleaner, nasty stuff!

In general this is how it goes.

I hope this may have helped!

Best regards,
Tom

How do i change front brake pad on this car merecy sable 1989 -99


Remove the wheel, remove the 2 bolts holding on the caliper to the caliper carrier. You will need a large C-Clamp or a cailper piston tool. Place an old brake pad against the piston in the caliper and use the C-Clamp to push the brake pad against the piston to collapses the piston into the caliper. Also open the master cylinder cap and place a towel around the area to catch any brake fluid that would come out of the master cylinder as you collapes the piston, this is normal, but doesn't always happen, depending on the level of fluid in the master cylinder. Install the new pads and reinstall the caliper and wheel. Make sure you pump the brake pedal a few times before you take off, to get the pads against the rotor.

Front brake calipers clamping down on rotor


Sounds like they need a damn good clean.
Corrosion eats away at the calipers, so strip them down & clean well. Be sure to remove the rubber boots as corrosion behind them grips on the shaft causing the caliper to not float & the brakes lock-on
If your wheel wont turn at all then hit the caliper bodies with a rubber mallet - dont hit the bleed nipple!!
Good Luck
