They could simply, just be really hard to move it sounds like you have everything off to me, I've changed my own everytime. Try a little WD-40 to loosen it up. Golf 1999, my rear calipers needed to be turnt in not pushed in if that makes sense. you need to twist them in with some big grips. not sure what way. they were tight. needed to loosten fluid cap too to help.
Remove wheels Loosen Brake lines to calipers Retract piston into caliper slightly remove mounting bolts (2) Remove brake lines Remove caliper
Each of the calipers is held in place by two bolts. Remove the bolts and then the caliper. If necessary you may need to retract the caliper piston using a screwdriver or large C-clamp.
jack up vehicle. remove wheel remve caliper bolts from rear of caliper slide caliper off rotor remove old pads push piston back into caliper with a c clamp insert new pads reinstall calipers and bolts replace wheels
there should be four bolts on the back of the calipers two of them should hold the pads and the other should hold the caliper remove the pad holder first and then the caliper.
Use a screwdriver to lever piston back (between caliper and front of piston). remove caliper, usually two bolts, remove pads from caliper, fit new ones same way. re-fit caliper.
Hey Nina==Take off the wheel then remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper on. Then pry on the caliper to compress the piston and remove the caliper. Hang the caliper with a coat hanger or wire and don't let it hang by the hose. Goodluck Joe
Remove the wheel, locate the Caliper. On the inner side there are 2 bolts going through the caliper, remove those (before removing use a flat head screwdriver to compress the caliper some) remove caliper. If you are removing the rotors remove the 2 large bolts on the caliper bracket.
Remove wheel, remove the two bolts in the calipers, pull up calipers, remove pads compress caliper piston with a c-clamp, be sure to have the brake fluid cap off the reservoir under the hood. - replace pads and reverse the order.
Most vehicles Remove wheels Re-install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor
Remove wheels Remove caliper mounting bolts(2) Slide caliper off rotor Support with hanger (Do not let hang by flexible brake lines)
Remove wheel, remove the two bolts that hold the caliper to the bracket, use a C-clamp to compress the piston back into the back caliper and then remove from the rotor.
Remove 2 caliper bolts, squeeze piston back,remove old and fit new pads. Wirebrush slider then re-fit caliper.
remove th front wheel, undo the 2 bolts on calipers and bushings,thenlift calipers off. HINT: if calipers seem to stick then get a large flat bladed screwdriver and wedge it between rotor and caliper and apply just enough force to back off pistons in calipers to remove them then they will slide off.
Remove wheels Re-inatall 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor
Remove wheels Re-install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place Remove 2 caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor A special tool (not expensive) may be required to retract pistons in to caliper body available at Sears or auto parts These piston may be threaded to accomodate parking brake
Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor Use a "C" clamp to fully retract piston into caliper body If parking brake is used on this caliper piston is threaded and a special tool (not expensive) is required to thread piston into caliper body
remove the caliper slider bolts and the brake hose then put the new caliper on, dont forget to bleed the new caliper and top off brake fluid when finished
Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.
Use a screwdriver between caliper and front of piston to squeeze piston back, remove caliper via two bolts on rear inside of caliper. Slide caliper away from rotor and support to ensure you don't damage the hyd. hose. Remove pads from caliper, fit new ones same way. re-fit caliper.
jack the truck up, remove the wheels. There is usually 2 bolts that hold the calipers on, and usually there is a bracket that holds the calipers to the pads. Remove old pads and replace with the new and replace the caliper, bracket, and bolts
jack up sportage, remove front wheels, remove 2 bolts on rear side of each caliper and remove calipers.
Jack the front of the car up and put it on stands. REmove both front wheels. Take the 2 caliper bolts off the calipers. Move the piston back with a screwdriver. Remove the caliper from the rotor. Pull the pads and replace them. Installation is the reverse of the above steps.
Remove wheelsDisconnect the emergency brake cablesDisconnect the brake linesRemove caliper mounting boltsSlide caliper off rotor
Front or rear? Front should have 2 17mm hex head bolts loosen them and remove them both and you should be able to remove the caliper. Rear calipers should have 2 14 or 15mm hex head bolts and just do the same
Put the front of the vehicle on jack stands and remove both front wheels. Disconnect the hydraulic brake line from the caliper. Using an appropriate sized allen wrench, remove the two bolts that hold the calipers to the axle assembly. The bolts are at the top and bottom, and can be accessed from the side of the caliper that is closest to the engine. Once the bolts are off, the caliper should slide off, but it's a tight fit, so you may need to work with it a little. You need a 10mm socket for the caliper bolts. Not a allen wrench
