How do you change rear brakes on Nissan Sentra?
I have NEVER read a manual or asked anyone how to replace the
brakes on any vehcile in the over 20 years of working on vehicles.
If you have to get your brakes worked on, and you have no knowledge
of vehicle brakes, have someone you know, who knows HOW TO DO IT
RIGHT, show you. or Take it to a shop. The most prominent weapon in
use in America today is the Automobile. Playing with it, is like
playing with a loaded 357 magnum with the hammer cocked. That being
said an appropriate Haynes or Chiltons Manual can provide
reasonably detailed instructions on how to change the brake shoes.
Ensure you exercise proper safety by using jack stands, chocks, and
avoiding inhalation of brake shoe dust as it may contain asbestos.
Use a digital camera to record the way the brakes parts are put
together before disassembly. Lay the parts out in the order of
disassembly so that it will be easier to reassemble them. Consider
adding aftermarket brake bleed nipples that contain internal check
valves and reduce the brake bleeding job to one person.
