front brakes== jack wheel up, remove wheel and support the car on a jack stand,, remove the plastic screw caps off of the caliper and set aside,push the piston back with a c clamp there is a little window right in the middle of the outter pad to do so the other end of the c clamp can go on the back side of the caliper remove the Allen head screws that are inside of there, they are buried in ther a little but they are there , use a 7mm Allen head to remove the screws,, some may be 1/4 inch, tie the caliper out of the way with a bungee cord, then remove the caliper mounting bracket bolts, they are 14mm socket or wrench, i usually put the box end of a wrench on them and tap them loose with a heavy hammer , if you don't want to do that then use a breaker bar, remove bracket, if the rotors have those stupid retaining screws still on them you will have to heat them with a propane torch for a couple minutes each,, don't panic, they will come off stick the screwdriver in there and whack that with a hammer to that will ease removal aswell as the heat then yhoure not done yet, you didnt think the rotor was going to just fall off did ya? no no, you now have to whack the outter edge of the rotor with a sledge hammer, either side to you liking. then the rotor should come right off after a few whacks....installation is the reverse of removal

rear discs are very similar. but some the caliper and mounting bracket is and assembly, and the pads are held in with pins so to change the pads the caliper can stay on,. and you have to push the pitons back by wedging a screw driver in between the piston and pads,,,,, happy kia

I believe the awnser varies on what model you have... I have a 1999 galant GTZ mine has disc ( rotors ) front and back, The rear has the disc drum combo for the parking brake... Hope this helps

if you are driving and you go to stop, then that means that the front rotors are warped. if the front rotors are bad, you will feel a pulsation in pedal while applying brakes. change rotors on front.

The speed sensor on a 1999 Kia Sephia is located on the transmission. It is just behind the bell housing for the transmission.

The 1999 Kia Sephia is compatible with Dexron III automatic transmission fluid (ATF). The Sephia can also use Dexron/Mercon and Mercon LV ATF.

the only other parts you might check when you have it pulled apart,are the wheel bearings.the bearings etc are in the rotors but do not come with them when you buy rotors.if you are not careful you will trach the bearing races and seal on the back side of rotors when trying to remove them to install in new rotors

Warped brake rotors. This is a very common problem for the 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees. You will need to have your rotors replaced, or resurfaced. The best resurface method is with an on car brake lathe.

The taillights on a 1999 Kia Sephia are replaced through the cars trunk. Remove the plastic covers from the light housings and replace the bulbs.

If you mean for checking if you need new brakes, just feel it, if there's a lip around the outside that is getting pretty define your probably going to need brakes pretty soon

You need to have the abs checked for codes. Then you can diagnose cause.

You have to remove the brakes, rotors, wheel hubs, axle shafts, diff cover, and differential carrier, seals are on the inside of the axle tubes.

there is a possibility that you have a malfunctioning master cylinder. my dodge neon ate up two sets of pads/rotors and drums before we found that the master cylinder was causing the brakes to stick.

remove the brake caliper and the rotors come right off

The timing belt on a 1999 Kia Sephia is changed by removing the timing cover, loosening the tensioner, and pulling the belt off. A new belt is then put in place and then tension reapplied.

It appears to be equipped for trailer brakes.

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1999 Chevy Cavalier. Remove the brake spring and the caliper. The brake pads will come off. Tap on the rotor with a hammer or mallet. The rotor will slide off. Reverse the process to install the new brakes and rotor.

The brake rotors for the 1999 Montana and 2007 Town & Country are different part numbers and different dimensions; therefore they will not interchange.

does anyone know of a website to go to for a illustration drawing of the front rotorson a 4x4 1999 ford ranger?

When replacing your brake pads on your Ford Explorer, you first need to jack up the vehicle and remove the tire. This will give you access to the brakes. Locate the caliper, remove the two bolts and slide the caliper off. Inside the calipers are the brake pads.
