My 99 Sunfire front drivers side brake caliper mounting bolt wont screw in the mount itself, mount stripped

Step 1:

One of two ways to fix this is to change the caliper bracket. This is the best way and probably the cheapest way as you can find plenty of these cars in wrecking yards.

Step 2:

The other way requires inserting a Heli Coil. You buy the Heli Coil kit for the original bolt and drill and tap the hole to a larger size and install the Heli Coil insert to restore the hole to original size.

05 hyundai elantra rear drum brake

Hi Peter,

The drums can get really stuck onto the center hub. If you look at your brake drum, you will see that there are 2 small holes in the drum between the lug stud holes. These holes are threaded. They are placed here just for this putpose. You can screw a bolts into these holes and "push" the drum off of the hub. Turn one scew a couple turns then turn the other srew a couple turns so as to push the drum off evenly and not cause it to bend or warp. Most brake drums like this use a 10mm X 1.5 bolt thread. If you get a couple of bolts from the local parts supplier, you can have them check to make sure they are the correct size by having them screw the bolts into a new drum that they may have in stock. You will need bolts with at least 1-1/2" thread length.

Have broken lug bolts front passenger side, can I replace them myself?

yes but it is a huge pain in the *** you have to remove the wheel the brake caliper and the brake disk and remember it isn't lego it is all bolted on and screwed together and if you mess it up it wont be just your life that comes to a sudden stop you may kill somone else so if you havent do it b4 then stop

if you have done a front brake job and survived than di it again once the rotor removed there is the flange plate and the broken studs get the hammer out wack each broken bolt to remove it place the new stud in the hole and get the tire iron out tighten it up pull it right through you might need a spacer like a 6 pack of washers to pull the bolt all the way through
reinstall the brakes and happy driving remember after the first 50 km get out the tire iron and re check the studs are all tight as it will likely settle after a bit of brake heat

I bought brake rotors for my 93 toyota truck an it came with no studs, do i take the old ones off or gotta buy new?

Preferred method is to use new.


1.Because every time the lug bolt is installed, and tightened on the lug bolt, the bolt stretches. Eventually the bolt will weaken.

If the lug bolts have been put on by an impact wrench, this could turn out to be a real issue.

The correct procedure is to tighten the bolts using a torque 'stick', or on the final tightening, use a torque wrench.

This torque stick is a 1/2 inch extension. Resembles a 1/2 socket wrench extension, that is 6 inches long.
Will twist slightly when the proper torque value is reached.
The lug nuts should always be tightened in the proper sequence, also.

2.Because the area of the lug bolt, that goes through the brake rotor has been knurled. This swells the area a few thousandths of an inch.
Makes the bolt stay in place.

When the lug bolt is installed, some of the knurling is sheared away. Reusing an used lug bolt is not a good practice.

I realize the price of the lug bolts may be high, but I value your life, and wanted to tell you the correct advice, and procedure.

You may not know the lug bolts you reused off of your old rotors are bad, until you are on the highway clipping along at a fast speed, and then it's too late.

Brack change

Assuming that this Model has 4 Wheel Disk Brakes I will lead you the Best that I can. Remove the Tire, From there you will see a Large Disk with a "Caliper" Mounted on the top side that covers Both sides of the Disk. On the Back side of this "Caliper" on the Top and Bottom of it There is going to be a Bolt on the Top and Bottom. Some use Allen Wrenches and Some use Bolts or Nuts, Feel around and figure out which one you have. Remove these and Lift the Caliper Off of the Disk,BE CAREFUL WITH THE BRAKE LINE ATTACHED TO THE CALIPER AND DO NOT REMOVE THE BRAKE LINE! Remove the Brake Pads from the Caliper at this Point. On the Back of the Brake Pads that you just removed there should be Clips, Take these off the Old pads ans Install on the New Pads. Right where the Pads were on the Caliper there is going to be a Round Cylinder with a Large Hole in the Center, This needs to be Depressed back into the Caliper to get this Job done. On the Top of the Caliper there is a Small Bolt that is Round on Top and has a Small Hole in the Center Just like a Persons Head on a Nut. You MUST do the Next Steps Together to make this work CORRECTLY! Get a Wrench that fits the Small nut on top and Loosen it VERY LITTLE While you use a Pair of Channel Locks to Compress the Cylinder Back into the Caliper. You should see Brake Fluid come out of the Head in that little Nut. Once the Cylinder is Compressed Back into the Caliper Tighten the Little Nut Back down. Try not to let Air get Back into the Hole in the Nut that you are Loosening Or We will have a PROBLEM. So, Make sure you do BOTH of them at the Same time (Loosen nut WHILE Compressing Cylinder with Channel Locks). Install the New Brake Pads on the Caliper the Same way that they came off. Wipe everything off and keep it all Clean! Install the Caliper Back on the Disk and Replace the Bolts on Top and Bottom of Caliper. Get in the Car and Pump the Brake Pedal until it gets Firm and go to the Next one! This will work for all if you have 4 Wheel Disk Brakes. If you get two much air in the Lines the Brakes will go to the Floor and you will have to have a Helper Pump the Brakes while you Loosen the Little Nut on top of the Caliper. Message Back with ANY more Questions!

Brakes on mr2 1991

Hi chillitorres,

Chock the vehicles rear wheels and loosen the front wheel nuts, jack it up and put it on chassis stands....

Remove the front wheels and then turn which ever wheel that you start with, into the direction of most convenience.....You will see that there are two bolts which are visible, and allow the sliding part of the caliper to do just that, so that the piston fitted to the inside unit presses outwards, and in turn, compresses the outer part of the caliper, so that the pads are squeezed on either side of the disc.....These two bolts DO NOT need to be removed for the job you are doing....

With your hand, feel lower down on the inside of the housing, untill you contact two larger 17mm bolts....These should be removed.....
.....Once freed of the two bolts, you'll be able to pull the caliper towards you and loosen the pads enough to lift off the whole caliper.....
......Have a piece of wire, that you can hang the caliper onto, and then hook the other end onto a convenient place.....(the suspension spring is a good place).....
.....Once removed you'll see that the disc is held by either one or two counter sunk screws....remove them and the disc can be removed....
....Replace the parts that you wanted to, and then reassemble....

When the vehicle is lowered onto its wheels, get inside and PUMP the brake pedal, four or five times....You'll have had no need to open the brake fluid lines, and therefore, no need to bleed the brakes.....Once the job is completed, they should feel higher and firmer than when you began....

Once you're happy with the 'feel' of the brakes.....happy motoring.....

Best regards Johngee10
