Mazda 6 2006 front brake pad clicking noise


Same problem, unscrew the 2 caliper bolts, they should have a rubber boot at top and MUST have a bushing type layer - like a rubber sleeve over the front end of bolt like a 2 inch rubber sleeve that is inserted into the caliper. Without the sleeve bushing and rubber boot at the top head of bolt the caliper will make a clicking sound going over bumps as the whole caliper will make the clicking sound hitting as the pads or rotors will have play. Had all bushings, struts, shocks wheels ball joints, sway bars, control arms checked but this simple bolt going into caliper will make calipers have enough play to knock when going over bumps. never would have thought as all pads, rotors etc tight as drum but old school tech found it and solved, 06 rx8 try its cheap and easy ix.

How do you remove the front disc brakes?


To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
1. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
2. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
3.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
4. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
5.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
6.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
7.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
8. Install your new brake pads .
9. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....

Need to replace 1991 chevy astro van break pads and rotors and need a diagram


The following procedure requires the use of a C-clamp and slip-joint lock pliers.
  1. Siphon off about 2/3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoirs.

CAUTION The insertion of thicker replacement pads will push the piston back into its bore and will cause a full master cylinder reservoir to overflow, possibly causing paint damage. In addition to siphoning off fluid, it would be wise to keep the reservoir cover on during pad replacement.

  1. Raise and support the front of the vehicle on jackstands. Remove the wheels.
When replacing the pads on just one wheel, uneven braking will result; always replace the pads on both wheels.
  1. Install a C-clamp on the caliper so that the frame side of the clamp rests against the back of the caliper and so the screw end rests against the metal part (shoe) of the outboard pad.
  2. Tighten the clamp until the caliper moves enough to bottom the piston in its bore. Remove the clamp.
  3. Remove the 2 Allen head caliper mounting bolts enough to allow the caliper to be pulled off the disc.
  4. Remove the inboard pad and loosen the outboard pad. Place the caliper where it will not strain the brake hose; it would be best to wire it out of the way.
  5. Remove the pad support spring clip from the piston.
  6. Remove the 2 bolt ear sleeves and the 4 rubber bushings from the ears.
  7. Riveted style brake pads should be replaced when they are worn to within 1/32 in. (0.8mm) of the rivet heads; bonded style pads should be replaced when they are worn to no less than 1/32 in. (0.8mm) of the backing plate.
  8. Check the inside of the caliper for leakage and the condition of the piston dust boot.
To install:
  1. Lubricate the 2 new sleeves and 4 bushings with a silicone spray.
  2. Install the bushings in each caliper ear. Install the 2 sleeves in the 2 inboard ears.
  3. Install the pad support spring clip and the old pad into the center of the piston. You will then push this pad down to get the piston flat against the caliper. This part of the job is a hassle and requires an assistant. While the assistant holds the caliper and loosens the bleeder valve to relieve the pressure, obtain a medium pry bar and try to force the old pad inward, making the piston flush with the caliper surface. When it is flush, close the bleeder valve so that no air gets into the system.
Make sure that the wear sensor is facing toward the rear of the caliper.
  1. Place the outboard pad in the caliper with its top ears over the caliper ears and the bottom tab engaged in the caliper cutout.
  2. After both pads are installed, lift the caliper and place the bottom edge of the outboard pad on the outer edge of the disc to make sure that there is no clearance between the tab on the bottom of the shoes and the caliper abutment.
  3. Place the caliper over the disc, lining up the hole in the caliper ears with the hole in the mounting bracket. Make sure that the brake hose is not kinked.
  4. Start the caliper-to-mounting bracket bolts through the sleeves in the inboard caliper ears and through the mounting bracket, making sure that the ends of the bolts pass under the retaining ears of the inboard shoe.
  5. Push the mounting bolts through to engage the holes in the outboard shoes and the outboard caliper ears and then threading them into the mounting bracket.
  6. Torque the mounting bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). Pump the brake pedal to seat the linings against the rotors.
  7. Using a pair of slip-joint locking pliers, place them on the notch on the caliper housing, bend the caliper upper ears until no clearance exists between the shoe and the caliper housing.
  8. Install the wheels, lower the vehicle and refill the master cylinder reservoirs with brake fluid. Pump the brake pedal to make sure that it is firm. If it is not, bleed the brakes.

    How to replace brakes


    1. Remove the cover on the master cylinder and siphon enough fluid out of the reservoirs to bring the level to 2/3 full. This step prevents spilling fluid when the piston is pushed back.
    2. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the front wheels and tires.
    3. Push the brake piston back into its bore using a C-clamp to pull the caliper outward.
    4. Unfasten the brake hose fitting from the caliper using a flare nut wrench, cap the fitting to prevent foreign material from entering the or the hose.
    5. Remove the two bolts which hold the caliper and then lift the caliper off the disc.
    1. Remove the inboard and outboard shoe.
    If the pads are to be reinstalled, mark them inside and outside.
    1. Remove the pad support spring from the piston.
    2. Remove the two sleeves from the inside ears of the caliper and the 4 rubber bushings from the grooves in the caliper ears.
    3. Remove the caliper.
    4. Check the inside of the caliper for fluid leakage; if so, the caliper should be overhauled.
    To install:
    1. Lubricate the sleeves, rubber bushings, bushing grooves, and the end of the mounting bolts using silicone lubricant.
    2. Install new bushing in the caliper ears along with new sleeves. The sleeve should be replaced so that the end toward the shoe is flush with the machined surface of the ear.
    3. Install the brake pads.
    4. With the two pads in position, place the caliper over the brake disc and align the holes in the caliper with those of the mounting bracket.
    1. Fill the cavity between the bolt bushings with silicone grease. Install the mounting bracket bolts through the sleeves in the inboard caliper ears and through the mounting bracket, making sure that the ends of the bolts pass under the retaining ears on the inboard pad.
    For best results, always use new bushings, sleeves and bolt boots.
    1. Tighten the mounting bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) for R/V Series; 28 ft. lbs. (38 Nm) for 1988-92 C/K Series and 38 ft. lbs. (51 Nm) for 1993-98 C/K Series.
    2. Connect the brake hose to the caliper and tighten the fitting until the are snug.
    3. Pump the brake pedal to seat the pad against the rotor. Don't do this unless both calipers are in place. Use a pair of channel lock pliers to bend over the upper ears of the outer pad so it isn't loose.
    After tightening the mounting bolts, there must be clearance between the caliper and knuckle at both the upper and lower edge. On R/V Series, the clearance must be 0.010-0.024 in. (0.26-0.60mm); on C/K Series, it must be 0.005-0.012 in. (0.13-0.30mm) for 1988-91, and 0.010-0.028 in. (0.26-0.71mm) on 1992-98 models. If not, loosen the bolts and reposition the caliper.
    1. Install the front wheel and lower the truck.
    2. Add fluid to the master cylinder reservoirs so that they are 1/4 in. (6mm) from the top.
    3. Bleed the brake system.
    4. Check the fluid level again and add fluid as necessary. Do not move the vehicle until a hard pedal is obtained.
