How do you change the rear brake pads on a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon 2.7?
After you remove the rear caliper and old pads you will see the caliper piston has 4 slots that require a special tool to twist the piston down, you can usually get one to use from your local auto zone or parts store (I was able to use a pair of needle nose pliers as I'm sure you can), twist the piston clock wise applying a little pressure as you twist, make sure the rubber dust boot is not twisting as well, if it is twisting it is just stuck to the piston and may need a small bit of lube applied between the boot and piston but do your best to keep all dirt/dust out. Now after doing this and have enough room to put the new pads on you will notice that on the back of the pad that rests on the piston there is a small "keeper pin" (for lack of a better word) that will need to be lined up with one of the slots or notches on the piston so that the pad will rest flat against the piston, put on the new pads, reinstall the caliper and slowly pump your brake pedal until you feel the pressure build back up and there you have it. Note, removing the e-brake cable or opening the bleeder valve will do no good and what ever you do don't try to compress the piston you will either damage it or just get extremely frustrated. I just finished replacing front and rear on my daughters 2003, a two hour job start to finish I assumed..... 6 hours and few fits of frustration later I figured it out so I hope this helps at least one backyard mechanic have a better day.

After you have jacked the car and removed the tire you will see the caliper and rotor assembly. To replace the pads only: 1. You will need a 12mm socket or wrench 2. In the back of the caliper is a single 12mm bolt head located near the bottom of the caliper 3. Remove bolt 4. This portion… of the caliper assembly will swing upward allowing you access to change out the pads. (Note: there is only one bolt to remove for pad only replacement.) 5. You will need a disc caliper rewind tool or brake piston tool. The piston is a solid surface with 2 slots for turning the caliper. The one I used is a universal tool that cost $5 to $10. 6. Turn/Tighten the caliper. 7. Remove old pad, insert new pads If you are also removing or resurfacing the rotor, then follow these instructions: 1. You will need an 18mm socket and 18mm box end wrench 2. There are 2 bolts with 18mm heads holding the caliper assembly in place. 3. The parking brake line runs close to the top bolt. This is the line with a spring at the end. 4. I used the box end wrench to break loose both the top and bottom bolt, and then used the socket to remove. 5. I used a deep socket, so I had to apply some pressure to get it under the parking brake spring and on the bolt head. Be careful not to use too much force as you do not want to damage the parking brake assembly. 6. Remove the bolts 7. Remove the rotor, and then replace when ready. I bought new rotors, so I simply held the caliper while swapping out the rotors. However, you may need to suspend the caliper if you plan to machine the rotors first. A wire hanger will work fine for this. Get a manual from DISCOUNTAUTOREPARMANUALS.COM and it will tell you how to use a special tool required to compress the rear calipers which is rentable from parts stores. It is very easy. Remove the wheel, remove the two caliper bolts that hold the caliper to the wheel assembly. Slip caliper off the rotor. Once the caliper is removed from the rotor, take the spring clamp off and remove and replace the inner pad. Put the old pad against the new one and use a C-clamp to push the inner pad back into the caliper. Remove the C-clamp and put the outer pad into the caliper and replace the holding springs. Reverse the removal procedure. Before you drive the car make sure you pump the brakes to get rid of spongy feeling. It should take about 25 minutes all total. (MORE)
I suggest purchasing an inexpensive shop manual (Chilton, or similar)- they normally have a step by step procedure written up, along with pictures. You can buy the manuals at all/ most automotive parts shops. Do you know someone that has experience working on later model cars, ask for help, because …there are items that the manual will not detail and will only be learnt with some experience. Something to think about/consider- brakes are the type of thing that you want to "know" what you are doing, do the research and have a very good idea of what you are doing- the safety of a vehicle depends on it.

Answer . The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston b…ack into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads.\nYou can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.

Chock the tires so the vehicle will not move, as you will need to release the parking brake. As always, make sure the vehicle is on a level surface, no need in having to chase the vehicle down a hill.. Raise the rear tire off the ground and remove the wheel. There will be four bolts on the back of …the brake caliper, two to remove the caliper from the car and two to remove the slider.. Remove the caliper from the vehicle, and remove the old pads. You will see a + looking slot on the inside of the caliper, you will need to turn this clockwise to put the caliper plunger in, this will make room for the new pads to fit on the rotor. A large screwdriver may work, but there is a tool for this that is around ten dollars and can make this a painless job. Most calipers just get pushed in, however on this system you need to turn that thing clockwise to get it in.. Put in the new pads and reasemble. You will get frustrated a little, but once you have done it one it will be an easy task for the other side and every time you do it again.. One note, you should always have to rotors turned or replaced everytime you change pads. This will make for longer life on the pads and make the brake system work properly. When thet do not get turned and the brakes warm up, you will get some "wobble" when you brake. And a wobbly car is never good.. Hope that helps. (MORE)

Answer . Clutch replacement on the Tib is not an easy feat. Even if you have mechanic skills, to do the job correctly requires a lift, & extensive tools. . You need to lift the vehicle using a lift, and observing all safety proceedures associated with this type of equipment. The drive shaft/CV… joint must be removed.. The transmission must be unbolted & seperated. Using a trans jack to support the trans, it must be rotated to give access to the pressure plate, clutch disk, throw out bearing & fly wheel.. The disk/plate assembly must be removed, then the fly wheel. The fly wheel should by resurfaced at a machine shop.. The fly wheel is then bolted back in place, the clutch & disk installed using a clutch alignment tool, then pressure plate bolts must be torqued to specs.. slide the throw out bearing onto the shaft & reassemble.. If you're not up to this, you'll need to take it to a shop. Be prepared to pay 600.00-1,000.00 dollars US for this. It's a pain, I've done it twice (high performance clutch & fly wheel kits in my performance Tib). (MORE)

After looking at pictures of the Honda CRV's rear brakes. A pad change appears to be a process of removing the two caliper support bolts, removing pads, turning in the caliper piston (special tool required). You may be able to use a needle nose vice grips to retract the piston. Then replace pads and… any shims, fit pads and shims inside caliper housing, Clean and relubricate the caliper bolts (pins) and fit back onto rotors. I'll be doing a brake job on a 2003 Honda Crv tomorrow, and will let you know what I find (MORE)
You will need a hoist, a socket wrench set and a torque wrench. Youwill also need the brake pads, brake fluid and brake grease.?Ã¦

Remove the tire and wheel from your 2003 Chevy Impala. Remove thebrake assembly spring and the break caliper. The brake pads willcome off. Reverse the process to install the new brake pads.
Remove wheel then calapse caliper with a screwdrive. Remove caliper has two 15mm. bolts.Pads will slide out don not remove clips to hold pads in. Put new pads in and put caliper back on.
I just did mine. Use a screw driver to press the brake pads away from the rotor and compress the caliper pistons back some so you can remove the caliper off of hte rotor. Losen and remove the bolts to the brake caliper. DO NOT DISCONNECT the brake line from the caliper! Get you a c-clamp and a piece… of 1/4 board about 4 inches long. Once you have removed the caliper from the mount and removed the brake pads support the caliper with one hand. Place the wood over the caliper pistons and using the c-clamp place it over the wood and center of both pistons and other side of caliper to compress the pistons back into the caliper. Make sure you DO NOT PINCH the rubber boots on the pistons. Once you have compressed the pistons back into the calipers install your new pads and calipers back on the mounting surface and tighten the bolts back to torque specs. (MORE)
remove the top plastic on the right side of the engine and you will the the stock intake, all you need to do is unclip the box and you will see the filter.
The rear brakes on the P5 are a bit different than most setups...be careful! The only way to move the piston back into the caliper is by way of a special Allen head bolt that is directly behind the piston, on the back side of the caliper, installed under a 14mm bolt. You have to remove this bolt to …gain access to the Allen head. As you loosen the Allen head bolt(counter-clockwise), the piston will move back into the caliper. Installation is pretty typical, again, the Allen head bolt being the unusual part. The manual says to tighten this bolt until the pads contact the rotor, then loosen the bolt 1/3rd of a turn, then reinstall the 14mm bolt. Hope this helps...I found all of this out the hard way.

First remove screw from the master cylinder's reservoir this willrequire a Phillips screw driver .Then remove the mounting boltsfrom the brake caliper , remove pads and insert new ones.
Hi, just did mine, the pistons have to be wound back, if your in the UK you can get the tool from Halfords, about Â£20, i live in Spain & had to use mole grips with something on the grips so as not to damage the piston, make sure the lug on the back of the pads sit in the recess of the piston.....…......good luck (MORE)

take caliper off, and then remove brake pads... piston for the brake caliber must be spun in to reset it. dont try to puch it in, it will not move...
It's very easy. The only trick is to use a hex key to retract the piston. DO NOT try to just squeeze the piston back! Here's a couple links with pictures. http://www.miata.net/garage/brakepad.html http://werkz.com/feature.php?id=37

simple. get yourself a wrench set and an actuator tool to push in the rear pistons on the calipers.
Changing the rear brake pads on a Vauxhall Vectra is similar to another device and can be done by hand or by a mechanic. The original brake pads need to be removed but not any of the brake wires. Then new pads should be put on.
There will be allot of info on removing the rear calipers (Find the mounting bolts, remove, then remove the calipers, remove the old pads, put in new pads, replace in reverse order) - BUT I have done my 2003 a few times, and there is one important thing to watch for - they built these with a "wonky"… "threaded" piston in the caliper that pinches the pads. If you screw around with these, be careful, as they are the means to adjust the caliper piston back for the added meat of the new pads. They only adjust the one way (closed) when you mess with them unknowingly. be sure to have them turned in and open (The big flat "cross hairs" on the piston plunger is for this adjustment) - The car is engineered well, save this one part (emergency cable setup is poor too - seizes up) my 2 cents.

Remove wheel, remove caliper from mount, not from the brake line or the cable, get proper tool for working on rear disk brakes then twist the piston and compress it back into the caliper, install in reverse order.
Changed the front brake pads on your 2003 Dodge Durango Now the rear brake lights remain on all the time How do you fix the problem?
This problem is not likely to be directly related to having replaced the front brake pads, although it may be possible that your brake pedal height was altered somehow, especially if you had a leaking brake line or bled the brakes. Check your brake switch, it should be located near your brake pedal …inside the cab and under the dash. You should be able to locate it by pressing and releasing the pedal while looking for a button or switch that is contacted (by the pedal) by doing so. Said switch must be adjusted so that the pedal will activate the switch (usually by holding a button switch in) when the pedal is released. Some trial and error adjustments will tell you what works properly and what doesn't. Having a friend watch the brake lights and telling you when they're on or off while you make adjustments will speed up the process. (MORE)

depends. is it squeaking then most likely the pads. however if you leave it to long then the disc get warn into and therefor you will have to get the disc shaved down and in some cases replaced if to much damage is done. this being said if you go to the shop and they tell you both they probably aren…'t lieing and you should replace both. you can always check yourself and run your hands down the disk and see if you feel grooves in it. if they are deep then that means you have postponed your brake change for a little longer than you wanted to. Disc pads are pretty easy although you should have rotors turned at the same time. If you just want to change pads, there are 2 bolts on caliper. Remove those & it comes off. Pads just clip onto that (literally) Use new ones if pads come with them or salvage the old ones. Pay attn to how attached before pulling old pads. Use wire or something to support caliper if hose does not reach the ground so you don't stretch/damage brake hose. If you are careful, you may be able to get them on without having to bleed brakes. The tricky part is separating pads enough to get back on rotor. Shops use a seperator like a reverse c-clamp. You may be able to force apart enough depending how much wear was on original pads. If not, you can always open bleeder (on caliper) long enough to force them open easily(relieves pressure) If you do this, bleed when done. Just add dot 3 to master, have a helper push brake & hold. When down open, close after it comes out. Release brake pedal, repeat as necessary. (MORE)
You need to pull the rear differential off the bike. It sounds like a lot but it's really only about 10 bolts. Pop the axles out. Remove the left upper a arm to make room for one of the bolts to come out. Once you have the diff on the bench take the cover off the front. This is where the drive shaft… went through. It's best to sit the differential so that the cover is on top. There are 5 ball bearings that are going to fall out. Don't be alarmed, you can see right where they go. Just don't lose them. This will allow the clutch to sit in place. There will be two steel rings held together by springs. In between those two rings are a couple of steals and a couple of brake pads. These are what you change. Reassemble, put new oil. Use some heavy grease to hold the ball bearings in place when you put it back together. Good Luck. (MORE)
