SOURCE: Changing rear Brakes on a peugeot

Hi Jeff...

I'm afraid this isn't exactly a solution/fix... but I am literally a day or two away from doing this job myself and more importantly though, I've been able to remove the pins you're referring to... so I hope my experiences can help you here.

Btw, my peugeot 406 estate is the V6 version - first edition (I.e. I think '96ish to '99), with rear discs.

Right, the pins I think you're talking about are the biggish ones, which run cross-ways, through the pads & caliper housing. They should come out freely, although each is held in place with a spring-clip. To also confirm we're talking about the same thing, these biggish pins hold the anti-rattle cage in place, which you should be able to see, with the wheel off, looking at the caliper from the side (you should be able to see the sides/edges of the pads too). They are NOT the big bolts that secure the caliper in place.

Anyhow, I used a pair of long nosed pliers to remove the spring clips, then I used the pliers to give the big pin a quick twist (to check it would rotate/move freely, as compared to being rusted in). I then used one half of the pliers to poke the pin backwards. The hole that you push the pin through should be facing you, as you face the car/wheel/brake disc.

Hopefully you will find that by shoving something into this hole, the pin will move away from you, inwards, towards the car... then just move it along until it comes out the back of the caliper housing. BE CAREFUL that the anti-rattle cage doesn't spring off unexpectedly + MAKE SURE you note which way round it goes.

The job itself, I think, won't be hard (otherwise I wouldn't be doing it). However, I did invest in a Haynes manual, which is very good and covers this in detail.

Please note that I've only tried to explain how these pins get removed, not the whole process. I personally found that the big bolts which secure the caliper in place are the pigs to deal with. The nearside wasn't too bad but the offside, cos of the direction you have to turn the bolts through, was awful... and I nearly gave up cos I just COULDN'T get the lower bolt to budge (I did in the end but i was honestly at that one bolt for an hour).

Finally, in case the pad retaining pins are rusted-in, all I can suggest is VERY CAREFUL use of WD40/penetrating oil + trying to rotate the pin (as I mentioned earlier) + something like a nail (suitably thick), which can fit into the hole that the pin resides in and then tap the nail with a hammer, so that the pin gets knocked backwards.

Hope this helps a bit.

Have you tried running a cleaning device through it? The case may be that the laser that actually read the disc is either stuck in place or it has burnt out on it. That's if the cleaning doesn't work.

Your best bet is to take the Cd player to a car audio store. Refrain from trying to stick anything else inside the CD slot because this can have long term effects while your eject problem may be something simple and temporary but can't be solved without being there. I might also suggest getting aftermarket stereos..they simply tend to have less problems I find!!!

Hi Officer, currently a CD is dropped inside the player, however it does not hinder the disc rotation and the playing but i can hear the sound of the CD when rotating disc. i am afraid one day it will...

First of all remove any disks that are in the tray and then unplug the power cord for the unit.

Use a Philips screwdriver to remove the dozen or so screws from the sides and back that hold on the top cover. There will be many other screws there as well, but try to just remove the ones securing the upper casing cover to the lower casing frame.

Once the screws are out, just remove the top casing cover and then you should have an unobstructed view of the internal components and of any disks that may have accidentally fallen inside the case.

Now just remove the offending disk and then replace the cover and the screws.

Job complete. Just plug the unit back in and enjoy that long lost CD again.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.
