When changing pads do brakes have to be bleeded and if so how 1987 Mark7?
As long as the hydraulics are not opened, you do not have to bleed the system. When changing the brake pads, you can compress the caliper pistons back into the calipers without opening the hydraulic portion of the system. However, you may want to crack open the bleeder screw on the caliper to make it easier to collapse the piston, but even in that case, the system should not require bleeding.
What would cause a 1987 Honda Accord front driver side brake not to work after already changing the caliber and brake pad?
The frontside passenger wheel heats up as you drive and I have changed the rotor brakes and calipers on both front brakes but the problem persists on a 1987 Chevy Celebrity whats next?
try changing the flexible brake line Is the rim rubbing on something? Perhaps check the bearings, or CV joints. E brake on. Tranny in nuetral. Raise up front. Manually spin the wheel by hand. While spinning, check to see if there is any resistance. Sometimes the pistons get stuck in the applied position due to grit. Maybe fluid is not bleeding back quickly enough when brakes are released thus still applying partial pressure.
Why would the brakes not release from the rotors after changing both on a 1987 Dodge Dakota 2 wheel drive?
i have seen the flex hoses collapse if some one has pinched them off to stop fluid loss during service of calipers if you open the bleeder screws and the brakes release you will need to release the flex hoses I have an '88 Dakota that had the same problem. I changed the calipers which didn't help, so I checked the master cylinder and found out the piston had seized up. I put a new…
Why is there a hissing sound coming from under the dash of your 1987 Dakota pickup It increases when the brakes are applied Can anyone help you with this?
Sounds to me like you have a lot of questions. I think you would be better off taking it to a mechanic or attending a trade school so you can learn to work on cars. Brakes are nothiong to be fooling with, however a good shop manual should help you through your dilema. Go to wherever you bought your brakes and ask for a Haynes manual....
I just changed the brake fluid on my 1987...I bought two quarts and have most of one of 'em left, and I bled each wheel twice. I have a power bleeder, though; if you're changing it with the two-person method - one sitting in the car pumping the brakes, one at the wheels with a wrench and bottle - you'll use two quarts.
