Change rear brakes


Just follow this instructions:

1 Unbolt the brake caliper from the front fork or rear swingarm, using a socket wrench. Use a 14-mm hex socket to unscrew the front caliper bolts, and a 6-mm Allen socket for the rear caliper.
2 Slide the caliper off the brake rotor. Suspend the caliper from the handlebars or frame, if needed, using a bungee cord.
3 Pull the hair clip pin out of the brake pad's retaining pin on the outside face of the caliper using a pair of needle-nose pliers. Push the retaining pin out of the back of the caliper with your finger.
4 Pull the brake pads and their spring clip out of the caliper. Retain the spring clip, and discard the brake pads.
5 Reinstall the brake calipers, following the reverse method of removal.

I hope this will help you. thanks

How to fit rear brake pad retainer clip when i took the rear brake pads out the pad retainer clip fell out and i cannot see how the little clip fits back on


If the clip has a slot in it then it fits in the caliper where the ends of the pads fit.
If not & it has a sprung tab then it fits in the caliper where the top of the pads fit

Hope this helps.

I want to repair the brakes on a 1999 Chrysler Town & Country minivan - Would like instructions and a picture/diagram, if possible.


Chrysler Caravan/Voyager/Town and Country 1996-1999

CAUTION
Older brake pads or shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.
  1. Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
  2. Raise and safely support the of the vehicle. Remove the wheels.
  3. Remove the brake caliper assembly that requires brake pad replacement.
  4. Support the caliper out of the way with a strong piece of wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose or damage to the brake hose will result.
  5. If necessary, compress the caliper piston into the bore using a C-clamp. Insert a suitable piece of wood between the C-clamp and caliper piston to protect the piston.
  6. Remove the outboard disc brake pad from the caliper by prying the brake pad retaining clip over the raised area on the caliper. Slide the brake pad down and off the caliper.
  7. Remove the inboard disc brake pad from the caliper by pulling the brake pad away from the caliper piston until the retaining clip on the pad is free from the caliper piston cavity.
To install:
  1. Be sure the caliper piston has been completely retracted into the piston bore of the caliper assembly. This is required when installing the brake caliper equipped with new brake pads.
  2. If equipped, remove the protective paper from the noise suppression gaskets on the new disc brake pads.
  3. Install the new inboard disc brake pad into the caliper piston by pressing the pad firmly into the cavity of the caliper piston. Be sure the new inboard brake pad is seated squarely against the face of the brake caliper piston.
  4. Install the outboard disc brake pad by sliding it onto the caliper assembly.
  5. Install the brake caliper assembly.
  6. Install the wheels and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm). Apply the brake pedal several times until a firm pedal is obtained.
  7. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add fluid as necessary. Road test the vehicle.

How can i change the rear brakes pads?


1.Remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir

2.Loosen the wheel nuts then raise the vehicle and remove wheel

3.Push the piston back into the bore to provide room for the new brake pads.A C-clamp can be used to accomplish this As the piston is depressed to the bottom of the caliper bore the fluid in the master cylinder will rise.Make sure is doesnt overflow.If necessary drain off some of the fluid. 4.Before removing anything,spray the disc,and brake pads with brake system cleaner dont use compressed air 5.remove the caliper mounting bolt,the banjo fitting for the brake hose shouldnt be disconnected unless you are removing the caliper or hose replacement

6.Swing the caliper up and secure the caliper up towards the spring with a piece of wire then remove the lower and upper anti-rattle springs.Remove the outer brake pad and shim then remove the inner brake pad ans shim(s)

7.Remove and inspect the upper and lower pad retainer clips,the pad retainer clips should fit snugly in the caliper mounting bracket;if they dont,replace them.Apply thin film of high-temperature grease to the retainer

8.Apply anti-squel compound to the back of pads install the new inner pad and shim(s) make sure the "ears" on the upper and lower ends of the pad are fully engaged with their respective grooves and the pad retainer clips

9.Install the new outer pad and shim if new pad has no shim take the old shimoff the old pad and install it on the new outer pad.Install the upper and lower anti-rattle springs

10.Clean off the caliper pin and coat it with high-temperature grease.Lubricate the lower caliper pin with grease too thenswing the caliper down over the disc and new pads (if the piston hits the inner pad depress the piston further into the caliper bore with your c-clamp

11.Install the mounting bolt and tighten it to the torque specifications (44-63) 99 and earlier models (51-55)00 and later models
12.Put the wheel back on and tighten lug nuts

Front pad replacement the correct method for replaceing front disc pads


  1. Step 1 Remove ½ of the brake fluid from the master cylinder with the syringe and replace the cover. Discard the fluid.
  2. Step 2
  3. Remove the front hubcaps and loosen the wheel nuts using the lug wrench, but do not remove the nuts.
  4. Step 3 Lift the front end of the LeSabre with the floor jack and secure safely onto the jack stands.
  5. Step 4 Remove the wheel nuts and wheels. Screw one wheel nut back onto a wheel stud hand tight to retain the rotor away from the caliper assembly.
  6. Step 5 Place a large C-clamp over the left inboard caliper housing and the outboard pad, and tighten to compress the caliper piston.
  7. Step 6 Remove the two caliper guide bolts using a box end wrench. Remove the caliper and secure it to the vehicle chassis with mechanic's wire or a metal hook.
  8. Step 7 Remove the outboard pad from the caliper on the LeSabre first. Pry it off the outboard caliper housing using the screwdriver.
  9. Step 8 Remove the inboard pad by lifting the retaining clips out of the caliper bore.
  10. Step 9 Clean the surface of the caliper bridge that contacts the backing plate of the pads using a wire brush, and apply a thin coat of brake lubricant to the contact points. Be careful not to let the lubricant get onto the rotor.
  11. Step 10 Install the new inboard brake pad and shim into the caliper piston bore by pressing the retaining clips into the bore until it locks into place.
  12. Step 11 Install the outboard pad onto the caliper housing, making sure to align the retaining clips into the holes in the caliper. Use the screwdriver to convince the clips onto the caliper if necessary.
  13. Step 12 Replace the caliper over the rotor.
  14. Step 13 Clean off the surface of the guide bolts and apply a light coat of lubricant to the smooth surface of them. Align them properly through the rubber boots and bolt the caliper to the knuckle. Tighten the guide bolts using the wrench. Remove the wheel nut from the wheel stud securing the rotor.
  15. Step 14 Replace the wheel and wheel nuts. Tighten the wheel nuts snugly, and re-tighten them (with a torque wrench is recommended set at 100 foot pounds) once the LeSabre is back on the ground.
  16. Step 15 Repeat steps 5 through 14 for the right side.
  17. Step 16 Pump the brake pedal when you're through to seat the new pads against the rotors, then check and add new brake fluid to the master cylinder.

How to change rear brake pads


Raise the rear of the vehicle and make sure it is securely supported. Remove the rear wheel Remove the brake hose (A) from the suspension arm by removing the brake hose clip (B).Thoroughly clean the outside of the caliper to prevent dust and dirt from entering inside.Support the caliper with a piece of wire so that it does not hang from the brake se.f2d9a24.jpg
Remove the two guide rods (C) and caliper (D) from the bracket. Remove the pad shim (A) and brake pads (B).77fcb0a.jpg

Remove the pad retainers.2884b28.jpg
Clean the caliper thoroughly; remove any rust, and check for grooves and cracks. Check the brake disc for damage and cracks. Install the pad retainers. Check the foreign material at the pad shim (A) and the back of the pads (B). Contaminated brake discs or pads reduce stopping ability. Keep grease off the discs and pads.3fdca95.jpg
Install the brake pads (B) and pad shim (A) on the caliper bracket. Install the inner pad with its wear indicator (C) facing down ward. If you are reusing the pads, always reinstall the brake pads in their original positions to prevent a momentary loss of braking efficiency. Rotate the caliper piston (A) clockwise into the cylinder, the align the cutout (B) in the piston with the tab (C) on the inner pad by turning the piston back. Lubricate the boot with rubber grease to avoid twisting the piston boot. If the piston boot is twisted, back it out so it is positioned properly.1d2811d.jpg
Install the brake caliper (D). Install and torque the guide rods (E) to proper specification. Install the brake hose (F) onto the suspension arm with the brake hose clip (G). After installation, check for leaks at hose and line joints and connections, and retighten if necessary. Depress the brake pedal several times to make sure the brakes work, then test-drive. Engagement of the brake may require a greater pedal stroke immediately after the brake pads have been replaced as a set. Several applications of the brake pedal will restore the normal pedal stroke.
