How do you replace rear brake pads for a 2000 mustang V6 with rear disk brakes?
== == == ==
Loosen wheel lug nuts, jack up and support vehicle, finish removing wheel. Using a 13mm wrench, loosen the two caliper to pin bolts on the back of the caliper. This will release the caliper. Using a screwdriver, pry the caliper up and away from the bracket, the caliper should slide off the brake pads and be free from the bracket.
Wire the caliper up and out of the way.
Remove the pads.
Using the special ford tool, place it on the caliper piston and turn the caliper piston back into the bore with a rachet and extention until it is seated all the way (turn clockwise). The ford tool fits into the notches on the caliper piston.
Slide new pads into the caliper bracket, slide the caliper over the new pads and rotor, reattach the 13mm bolts and torque to 25lb/ft.
If removing/replacing the rotor, remove the caliper and pads as outlined above, then continue by removing the caliper support bracket using a 15mm wrench on the two bolts holding it to the hub assembly. Remove the caliper bracket, then the rotor should come off. It may require a few taps with a rubber mallet to loosen.
When reinstalling the caliper support bracket, torque the 15mm bolts to approx. 90 lb/ft.
When reinstalling the wheel, torque lug nuts to approx 95 lb/ft
It's hard to give you a straight answer for this question. What I can tell you is it all depends on the condition of your Brakes. It can cost you any where from $600+ up to $1300. I got mine done and it cost me $700, these are the repair that was done: replace front rotors, sensors, calipers, and brake pads( front only) and the rear replace pads, caliper and re-surface the rotors.

What can cause the brakes on a 2000 AWD Safari Van to fail for a split second at slow coasting speeds happens about once a week brakes are relatively new otherwise brakes work fine?
Replace the brake Master Cylinder. Keep driving this vehicle and you WILL have an accident. Have your brake system fixed. or your brake disks are out of round or the brake booster could have a hole in it. because master cylinders usually never go bad but to check look behind the master cylinder under the hood and if you see paint peeling or if it wet then you will haft to be replaced
What could be wrong with a 2000 Maxima GLE if the left brake light does not work when the car is in park but works when you step on brakes?
Is there any possible way to drive and brake so poorly that you would wear your brakes to metal on metal in 4200miles?
Sure, it can be done by somebody who rides the brake. It can also happen if you didn't turn the rotors and just pad slapped it instead of doing a proper brake job. It could also happen if your rotors have gotten rusty from sitting. I left my Mustang sit for a year and a half. It had good brakes before but the rotors rusted so badly that the pads only lasted about 2000 miles…
Is that the one directly under the word "Brake"? Yes... it is the brake warning lamp, calling attention to a detected problem with the brakes. First thing to check is the brake fluid levels. Second is that the emergency brake pedal is fully released. Third - could be excessive brake pedal travel - having to push it too far. This might be the brakes are in need of repair / replace. Anything else, have the…
What might be the problem if your brakes on your 2000 Silverado are trying to lock up on the passenger right front going down the highway?
Your brake caliper may be sticking and needs replacing. Another problem with older vehicles is that the inner liner on the flexible brakes lines will come loose and restrict the flow of brake fluid. This can make the brake pads slow to engage the rotor and also slow to release it. To fix this problem, replace the flexible brake line, and bleed the air out of the lines. It's best to replace both front brake…
These are very common, And easy to replace GM disc brakes. I just changed the ones on my 2000 Montana today. (08/20/07) There are two bolts that hold the caliper (piston) on to the front wheel. Loosen these two bolts (15 mm socket) and remove them. Then slide the assembly up off the brake rotor. The brake pads easily slide out of the retainer that holds them in place. You will need to take a…
If the rear brakes are drum brakes remove the wheel slide the drum off and check brake lining if brake lining is good then at the bottom of the brake assembly turn the adjuster wheel out. Check by putting drum on and spinning the drum until it spin 1 to 1 1/2 times around. If the car has rear disc brakes check brake pads probably needs to be replaced
Why would the parking brake light be on even though the parking brake is not on for a 2000 buick regal?
A 1984 Mazda B 2000 truck has two brake lines on the rear drivers side. I am accustomed to a vehicile having bleeders on all four brakes. How do you bleed the brakes on this truck?
This is just a secondary brake line in case something would happen to your primary line. Instead of bleeding the brakes with the bleeder valve, chock the wheels and slightly unscrew the fitting on the brake itself while a friend gently pumps the air out of the brakes. Make sure between each brake you top off your brake fluid. the bleeder is on the passenger side of the truck. use this to bleed both of…
