Lacking brake fluid front driver's side


You mean leaking? It should be easy to see where it is leaking. Often it is the rubber hose attaching the steel tube from the car frame to the brake caliper on the wheel.
If you need to see exactly where the fluid is leaking out, just put a little fluid into the master cylinder reservoir, and look at the caliper on the wheel while someone presses the brake pedal. You should be able to see if the leak is from the hose, or the brake caliper.

The hose can be replaced for just a few dollars, but it is a job for someone experienced in mechanic work. Once the new hose is on (or the new or reconditioned caliper if that was leaking), the brakes must be bled, all four of them.

My husband changed front brake pads and now brake fluid leaks drivers side front caliper bolt. Sometimes smokes


If your hubby only changed the pads and nothing else it is likely one of 2 things

- the rubber hose got twisted or jerked and is now partly split (they do so when getting old)

- the piston seals in the caliper are now leaking (when changing pads the piston has to be forced right back in the caliper and sometimes old seals cannot cope with this)

Inspect the hose closely and have the caliper overhauled with a seal and boot kit. Also have the brake fluid flushed and renewed.

I was changing the front disc brake pads on my 2008 Suzuki Boulevard S50. I took the two bolts out that hold the calipers together which caused the fluid to leak out and a small rubber gasket fell out ....


You will need to buy a new rubber gasket kit for caliper from suzuki shop
It is not usual to pull caliper apart for pad replacement, normally unbolt caliper off fork leg and lift of the disk

Brake fluid leaking from left front caliper.what could be the cause?


Hi,
The cause of leaking hydraulic fluids could be the caliper itself. For over years your using it dirt and dust might have accumulated in the seal and broke it.
Check also your brake pads it might be already worn and the caliper drum have moved to maximum and fluids came out.
There is a seal kit you could buy and replace the seal inside the caliper that is holding the caliper drum( a metal circular drum that pushes your brake pads when you brake ).
Pull down the caliper, remove the brake hose, using a high pressure a air would push out the caliper drum and you could see the rubber seal inside.

Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

How do I install new brake pads on Fairmont eb 92 non AVS type


The best way is to remove the calipers. Undo the mounting bolts but not the fluid line. Using a suitable pry bar, force the pistons back into the caliper until they reach home. Remove the old pads, clean up the area with a rag and fit the new pads. Guide the caliper back over the rotor being careful to hold the pads away so they clear the rotor, and lower the caliper into position. Refit the mounting bolts and tighten good and tight. The master cylinder may have overflowed so wash around the area to remove the fliud. Check fluid in the master cylinderand pump the pads out against their rotors. NOTE: Its a good idea to tie each caliper up with wire to support it whilst you do the work. This will avoid damaging the fexible hose. Also if you see any seals that are leaking, fit a new caliper repair kit.

Left hand side brake is sticking,i can easerly push piston back to free it off but one push of the peddle and its stuck again


Replace the left caliper. Afterwards flush through all the old brake fluid with new fluid by bleeding all of the brakes, and replace any other calipers or rear wheel cylinders which appear to be leaking or corroded.

Caliper overhaul kits are available and are cheaper, but you need to know for certain that the caliper piston and bore are undamaged: a seized caliper will always have damage to one or the other and is therefore not suitable for an overhaul kit.

How to remove a front brake hose for 1985 chevy 1/2 ton truck


You will find the clip for the front brake hose inside the frame.
Remove it and pull the hose out to remove it from the steel brake line.
The other end will have 2 gaskets at the caliper end....one above and below the hose connection.
Once the new hose has been installed.....open the bleeder on the caliper and remove all air as fluid flows into the new parts.
Only new fresh brake fluid should be added to the master cylinder to replace lost fluid.
Do not expose brake fluid to air for long periods.....it will absorb moisture.
You may have to bleed the other front caliper to restore a firm brake pedal.
After your repair hold the brake pedal down for a few minutes...it should not drop down.....and also inspect for leaks before moving the vehicle.

Brake fluid is leaking out the front left tire!


This is most likely a busted or separated line that is connected to the brake housing(on the front tire assembly). inspect the line for a tight fit. replace the line and coupler if found to be defective.

In most severe cases, the caliber may be faulty.
