You would need to change the main and the dust seal.
Pump out the piston then remove the dust and the main seals then clean out any white powder residue in the slots where the seals were, clean the piston with wet and dry paper or 1000 - 1200 grade glass paper and replace seals lubing up with brake fluid first do not use oil or grease as this will swell the seals and replace the piston, you may need to give this some GENTLE persuasion with a G glamp.
It's easier when bleeding your system to leave the caliper loose and also any ties that hold the brake line to the bike and try and get the caliper held above the fluid resevoir thus making it easier to expel the air as you have quite long brake lines in this bike.

Hope this helps

1994 Chevy Cavalier front right brake is locking up every time you step on brake . I already changed that caliber and it is still doing it


MOST OF THE TIME WHEN A CALIBER LOCKS UP: IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE CALIBER BEING BAD. THE CAUSE IS THE RUBBER BRAKE LINE GOING TO THE CALIBER IS BAD INSIDE OF THE RUBBER HOSE. ONCE YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL YOU PUSH FLUID INTO THE CALIBER ONCE YOU RELEASE THE PEDAL THE FLUID DOES NOT ALL RETURN TO THE MASTER CYL. THE HOSE IS OLD AND THE RUBBER IS BUSTED INSIDE OF THE HOSE AND THE FLUID IS STAYING INSIDE OF HOSE AND HOLDING PRESSURE ON THE CALIBER. I HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME AND NEEDLESS TO SAY IT COST ME AROUND $500.00 TO HAVE IT FIXED AFTER I REPLACED CALIBER, ROTOR AND BRAKES.

How to change 2001 crown victoria brake pads


Jack up car, remove the wheels, take out the two retaing bolts on the brake caliber, slide caliber up off brake disc, remove old brake pad, use a C-Clamp or big pair of Channel locks to compress the piston in to the brake caliber, Insert new brake pads onto caliber, slide brake caliber back over brake disc, reinstall the 2 retaining bolts. put tire back on. Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

My mini van 1999 dodge caravan , the front drivers side wheel , breaks squeak while driving but not when i apply breaks the break light comes on intermittently . what could be the problem ?


this is likley to be a sticky piston in the brake caliber,,,stirp the brakes out on both sides of the car and free off the pistons by cleaning them first then pushing them right back into the calibers chace that the caliber is free to slide as well use copper grease on the caliber pins and on the "back" of the brake pads,, check there is plenty of life left in the pads if not fit a new set to "both sides" dont just fix one side do both sides or the car wont stop in a strate line or may pull to one side!

Passenger side rear brake gets extremely hot and on occasion will smoke from the heat


There is a pretty good chance that the brake caliper has a seized piston. The F250 SD trucks seem to have alot of rear caliper problems. Hope this helps.. Cobra

Ive put a new rear rotor on my 03 kx250 and i


Yes, you need to bleed the system. Somehow air has gotten in.
First, fill the master cylinder to the full level with brake fluid. Locate the bleeder valve down on the caliper and get out a wrench that fits it. Then pump the pedal several times and hold it down as you open the bleeder valve. Do not let the pedal back up while the valve is open - or else air will be drawn back in. After a few seconds, close the valve and pump the pedal again.
Perform these steps until normal feel to the pedal is achieved. Make sure the master cylinder does not run low on brake fluid while you are doing the bleeding.

No brakes


Since you have done everything else it is the cylinder that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. The diaphragm in the cylinder has gone bad not allowing enouhg pressure

I want to change brake pads on my 03 Mazda Protege SE. What is best way to release hand break cable from caliber, remove caliber? This is the first set of breaks for this vehicle, but I've replaced pads on...


Some calipers have a bolt holding the hand brake mechanism to the body of the caliper. hold the mechanism with a spnner or If yours dont simply lever the mechanism with a bar or long screw driver. Place a pair of lock pliers/ mole grips on the cable(not too tight or you'll fray/damage the cable) then remove the cable from the caliper. When you get the pads out use a screw driver or wind back tool to reset the caliper travel or you will damage the caliper or lose the hand brake altogether.
