There could be a few possible reasons, if it is drums at the rear make sure that the e-brake is released and also make sure that you have a way of preventing your vehicle from rolling when you try to jack it up, it you have rotors than it could just be that they have seized and it will take some begging, praying, bloody knuckles and a breaker bar.

How do you convert hand brakes to coaster brakes?


Hi Dan Sink
You will have to either replace the whole wheel with one that comes with a coaster brake or replace the center (drive) assemby and have the wheel re-spoked.

1986 chevy truck left rear brake stuck


Hi Darren, If the brake cylinder in that wheel has seized it will need to have the drum removed which will not be easy. Chock the wheels, make sure the parking brake is fully released and loosen the lug nuts. Jack the vehicle and remove the wheel. Open the bleeding nipple at the back of the splash plate, thereby releasing the pressure of brake fluid. If the wheel rotates freely when you do that, the problem is with the master cylinder which will need replacement. If the wheel does not rotate after doing that work the wheel backwards and forwards until it rotates. Once it has become free, you should be able to work it off. When it is off you will need to disassemble the brake assembly. Before doing that make a detailed sketch of the whole assembly before taking anything off. Once the assembly is removed and you've grazed your fingers and cussed enough, remove the wheel cylinder and free the pistons and disassemble by removing the pistons. It would be a good idea to replace the cylinder but if it is not scored inside replacement brake seals will be in order. Make sure you fit them the correct way around and reassemble after installing the new brake seal kit. Adjust the brake so that travel is even. Once done bleed all four wheel. Begin the procedure at the furthest wheel from the master cylinder and work closer each time, bleeding each wheel until all signs of air have been expelled. Test the brake pedal for firmness and then fit back the wheel, lower the jack and complete the diagonal tightening procedure. Test the brakes by pressing the pedal. If the pedal sinks to low bleed again. In a safe place, test do a road test to make sure the brakes are correctly adjusted. When finished go inside, put your feet up and have a long cool drink, or a cup of coffee, tea or anything else as a reward for your labour. Best Regards John

How to replace Front Break pads?


    What You'll Need:
  • lug wrench
  • c-clamp
  • open end or adjustable wrench (depending on your car)
  • Allen wrenches (depending on your car)
  • hammer
  • small bungee cord

1. Preparation
Be sure you've got everything ready to go before you remove your old brake pads. Most important, be sure safety is at the front of your mind. You'll be taking the wheel off so be sure you have your car jacked up and resting securely on jackstands. Go ahead and break the lugsbefore you jack it up. It's much easier and safer with the wheel on the ground.

Never work on a car which is supported by a jack only! Unless you turn green and your clothes tear themselves to pieces when you get mad, there is no part of your person that can hold a car in the air if the jack slips. You may need to replace your brake discs depending on the amount of wear they have. You should inspect your brake discs regularly.

2. Remove the Wheelbrkpads-wheeloff.jpg


Remove the Wheel
7_1_2012_2_10_22_pm.jpg

You broke the lugs while the car was still on the ground, so they should be pretty easy to remove. I like to remove them from the bottom up, leaving the top lug nut to be removed last. This keeps the wheel in one place while you remove the rest of them and makes it easier to safely catch the wheel once you remove the last nut. You can't replace brake pads with the wheel on!

If you remove the lugs and still can't get the wheel off, try this stuck wheel trick.

3. Unbolt the Caliper


7_1_2012_2_12_31_pm.jpg

On most cars, the next step is to remove the brake caliper so the brake pads will slide out through the top. On a few cars the pads will come out without removing the caliper, but not many. You'll see the brake caliper in the 12 o'clock position just above the lug bolts, riding atop that shiny brake disc.

On the back of the caliper you'll find a bolt on either side. It will either be a hex bolt of an Allen bolt. Remove these two bolts and put them aside.

Hold the caliper from the top and pull upward, wiggling it around to loosen it up. If it's stubborn, give it a few taps (taps, not Hank Aaron swings) upward to loosen it a bit. Pull it up and slightly away, being sure not to put any stress on the brake line (that black hose that's still connected).

If there is a place to safely set the caliper back there, do it. If not, you'll need to take your bungee cord and hang the caliper from something, the giant coil spring staring at you is a good spot. Don't let the caliper hang by the brake line, it can cause damage and lead to brake failure!

4. Remove the Old Brake Pads



7_1_2012_2_14_57_pm.jpg

Before you pull out the old brake pads, take a second to observe how everything is in installed. If there are little metal clips around the brake pads, note how they are in there so you can get it right when you put things back together. Better yet, take a digital picture of the whole assembly.

With the caliper out of the way, the brake pads should slide right out. I say should because in a new car they probably would. Since our cars are not always new, you may need to coax them out with a litte tap of the hammer to loosen them up. If your car has little metal tabs holding onto the brake pads, put them to the side becase you'll need them in a minute. Put the new pads in the slots with any metal clips you removed.

While you're here, it might be a good idea to inspect your brake discs.

Go ahead and slide the new pads into place now, making sure you don't forget any of the little retaining clips you removed earlier.

5. Compress the Brake Piston



7_1_2012_2_16_31_pm.jpg

As your brake pads wear out, the caliper adjusts itself so that you will have strong brakes throughout the life of the pads. If you look on the inside of the caliper you'll see a round piston coming out. This is what pushes on the brake pads from the back. Problem is, it's adjusted itself to match your worn out pads. Trying to get it over the new pads is like parking a Cadillac in New York City. You can do it, but the damage level will be high. Instead of destroying your new pads, you'll push the piston back to the starting point.

Take the c-clamp and place the end with the screw on it against the piston with the other end of the clamp around on the back of the caliper assembly. Now slowly tighten the clamp until the piston has moved far enough in that you can easily plop the caliper assembly over the new pads.


6. Re-Install the Brake Caliper



7_1_2012_2_19_16_pm.jpg

With the piston compressed, you should be able to easily slide the caliper assembly over the new pads. Once you have it on there, replace the bolts you removed and tighten them snugly. Press the brake pedal a few times to make sure you have solid brake pressure. The first pump or two will be soft as the piston finds its new starting point on the back of the pad.

Put your wheel back on, being sure to tighten all of the lug bolts. Now double-check your lug bolts just to be sure.

You're done! Feels good, right?

  • Fotolia.com" data-type="modal">honda-rear-wheel-bearing-removal-1.1-800x800.jpg Replace the bearing and race as a single set. automotive roller bearing. image by Tom Oliveira from Fotolia.com

    Before raising the rear of your Honda, remove the dust cup from the center of the brake drums using a hammer and chisel. This will give you access to the spindle nut, which you can loosen using an axle nut socket. Then you can raise and remove the wheel/tire assembly ,or assemblies if you are replacing the bearings on both wheels.

    If your Honda model is equipped with rear disc brakes, remove the brake disc retaining screws, the brake hose bracket from the steering knuckle and caliper bracket mounting bolts. Hang the caliper to the coil spring using wire. Do not let the caliper hang free or the brake hose may be damaged.

    At this point, you will be able to remove the brake disc by hand. However, rust may have a firm grip on the disc. If this is the case, use a couple of 8-by-1.25 mm bolts and screw them evenly into the brake disc threaded holes. This will push the disc off the hub. Now you can finish removing the spindle nut and hub/wheel bearing assembly and install the new hub/wheel bearing assembly using a new spindle nut

    If your Honda Civic comes equipped with rear brake drums, remove the center grease cup and loosen the axle spindle nut using an axle nut socket. After raising and removing the wheel/tire assembly, finish removing the axle nut and washer.

    You might be able to remove the outer wheel bearing from the spindle using a screwdriver. If not, wiggle the brake drum as you pull on it to let the bearing fall off the spindle. However, the brake drum might be caught in place by the brake shoes. In this case, you can retract the brake shoes through the hole in the back of the backing plate.

    Remove the rubber plug from the back of the backing plate. Then rotate the star wheel on the adjusting screw using a brake adjusting tool as you push the lever off the start wheel with a screwdriver. With the brake shoes off the brake drum, pull the brake drum off the wheel assembly. Then clean the brake assembly with brake parts cleaner and a clean, lint-free towel.

    Now you can set the brake drum on a workbench or hard surface and remove the grease seal and inner wheel bearing. The inner and outer wheel-bearing races can be removed using a drift punch and hammer. Pack the new wheel bearings with high-temperature wheel-bearing grease using a wheel-bearing packer and use a new grease seal during installation. Also, before reinstalling the brake drum, apply a thick coat of wheel-bearing grease to the cavity inside the hub, but do not fill it completely.

How to replace rear disk brakes on honda element 2003 with a diagram


Diagrams don't exist for everything on a car. There is no diagram to replace the brakes.

Chock the front wheels, and jack up the rear of the vehicle. USE SAFETY STANDS. Remove the wheel & tire. Using a C-Clamp (one side on the pad, and the other side on the back of the caliper), compress the caliper pistons in. Remove the 2 slide pin bolts (2 on each side). If you can't find them, just look harder. There's 4 bolts for the brake assembly - the smaller ones are the ones you want to remove. They've got a rubber boot over where they attach to.
Remove the caliper, remove the pads. Replace the pads, and put the caliper back on. If the caliper does not fit, the piston is not in far enough - just use the C-clamp and an old pad to press it in further. Put the caliper back in, and tighten the two bolts down con juevos.
Repeat for the other side. Put the wheels back on, and lower the vehicle. Remove tire chocks.

For the sake of your safety, before you even START the car, pump the brake pedal until it is firm. Start the car and pump it a few more times.

Enjoy your stopping power!

I would suspect that the brake is not releasing causing your problem. When you place the handle in freewheel and you can't push the scooter easily then the brake pad is stuck on the motor housing. If you are able remove the seat and back cover remove the drive wheel on the side of the scooter nearest the freewheel lever usually the right side. you should be able to see the brake attached to the end of the motor with 3 or 4 hex head screws. take the brake off the end of the motor and carefully leave the wiring attached ( don't break or remove the wires going to the brake or the scooter will not run at all) remove the brake and place or tie it up where it won't fall or drag. Put the drive wheel back on and turn the scooter on and see if it will now move. If it moves like it should you will have to replace the brake. You can drive the scooter like this but remember you do not have brakes so the scooter can roll backwards or forward when not on and especially on ramps Hope this helps

How to release tension on parking brake cable to remove from rear caliper - 2008 Ford Taurus X


you should'nt have any tension on the parking brake,unless it's on. check the parking brake to insure that it's in the off position. chock" the rear wheels,to make sure the car does'nt roll while you're jacking it up and "always use jackstands,do not trust your jack" does your brake caliper piston have a + on it?it will be on the brake caliper piston itself, if so,then you need to back the brake caliper piston back in by turning it counterclockwise,auto parts stores sell a special tool to back the brake calipers back into place, i've always used a straight screwdriver,to turn the piston counterclockwise some do turn clockwise though to retract the brake piston. a simple call to the auto parts store where you're purchasing the brakes will tell you which way the piston will need to be retracted.other wise,it's a simple brake replacement,just push the brake caliper cylinder with a "C" clamp to retract the brake caliper, also,if you are replacing brake rotors,purchase the brake kleen to spray on the new brake rotors when you replace those.they have a clear film on them,you'll need to remove that film to insure no future issues with the brake rotors.simply spray the front and back of the brake rotors with this spray to remove the protective "film"and as always,thank you,for choosing fixya.com!

The front wheel bearing for your Buick is an integrated wheel hub/bearing/ABS.
Yes, the whole thing gets replaced. It should look like the one off my Bonneville; Bearing.

Remove wheel/tire. Remove brakes. Remove rotor. Remove axle nut. Press-out axle shaft. Unplug ABS connector. Remove 3 bearing bolts.
Don't forget to put the heat sheild back on during reassembly, and the axle nut need to be very tight.
