How do you change the brake pads on an '88 Pontiac Sunbird?

1st. If you intend to do any work on this car at all you need tools and a good repair manual. Spend the $20.00 bucks for a manual at autozone and read read read.

There are several things to consider

Rotors need replaced?...(can be turned?)Pads?Fluid and what type?Proportioning valve problems?Spongy brakes? need new rubber lines?Vac boost working correctly?Bad calipers need rebuild?leaking fluid?bad leaking brake master cylinder?

If this work was completed by a pro could cost well over $500.00The Pro has the book that's the only dif.Get the book and read, buy the tools you need and save yourself 200.00-300.00 bucks?

It is of my opinion never buy autozone brakes get NAPA's best Pay the extra money and stop when you need it.

How do you change a brake pad on a 1996 Ford Taurus?

Go to your local auto parts store first. Get a Haynes Manual for your car. This book has very detailed information on how to repair most of your common problems with cars.

The Taurus is actually one of the easist cars to change brake pads on. For the front, remove the bottom bolt from the caliper, flip it up and remove and slide in the new pads with attached shims. You may have to compress the piston, using a C-clamp slightly to flip up the caliper and completely compress it to fit the caliper back over the new pads. Make sure you open the master cylinder and remove about 1 inch of fluid before compressing the piston.

The rear pads are similar, though the pistons are threaded and require a special tool to compress them.

You want to inpect the rotors and resurface or replace them if necessary when replacing pads. Top up the master cylinder after applying the brakes four or five times.

  • just like to add it would help you alot to have vice grips when doing the rear brakes set parking brake clamp spring with vice grips then use pliers too unhook the parking brake cable and clip also the rear calipers slip down you remove the top mounting bolt leave parking brake on it will help when trying to get the cable back in ..
Car Sounds

What causes a knocking sound in the front of a car when turning to the right?

AnswerI assume that you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle and that the noise comes from the left side when you are turning right. If so, your symptoms are indicating a possible CV Joint problem (Constant Velocity Joint). Upon inspection, you will likely need a new or rebuilt half-shaft. You need MORE than a new CV boot because the joint has lost all the grease and dirt has gotten inside.

If it's a single knock or pop, it can be the tie-rod ends. If it's continuous knocking, almost grinding, most likely it's the CV Joint. But to be sure, lift the front of the car on jacks and grab the wheel that's making the noise at the 12 and 6 positions and give it a strong wiggle back and forth. If it gives freely for any distance, it's the CV Joint. Grab it at the 9 and 3 positions and wiggle those back and forth. If it moves freely for even a fraction of an inch, your tie-rod ends need to be replaced. Do the same to the other wheel because you never know if that one has a problem that hasn't audibly manifested yet. I suggest replacing both sides of the axle's tie-rod ends since you're going to have to get them aligned anyway. Replace both inner and outer tie-rod ends too. It'll be a little more expensive, but then you're only doing one re-alignment, and you know that you didn't leave any old parts in there that could go bad quite quickly (costing you time and re-alignment later). Basically, if any part of a tie-rod end needs replacing, do them all for the axle, as they all are likely due for it if one goes out. Both the inner and outer tie-rod ends have joints that can go loose over time. If you've let your car go for many years, you could end up with bad CV Joints and bad tie-rod ends. It's rare that both go bad at the same time, but a thorough inspection is best to be sure. Accidents and strong impacts like giant potholes *can* damage both systems.

How do you change brake pads on a 1999 Monte Carlo with ABS?

You need to purchase a Haynes Manual that is specific to your car. They can be bought at a parts store or bookstore.

You will need: Jack, jackstands, various wrenches or socket set, new brake pads, c-clamp

I usually do one side at a time.

Jack the car up safely. Put the car on jackstands.

Take the wheel off.

Loosen the two caliper bolts.

Pull the caliper off, and remove the old pads.

Make sure you DONT let the caliper hang by the brake cable set it up behind the knuckle or get something to support it with.

Use a large C-clamp to push the piston back in.

Install the new pads on the caliper.

Put the caliper back on, tighten the bolts down.

Replace the wheel.

Move on to the other side. Repeat procedure.

How To

How to change frount brake pads on a previa?

Take the wheel off, and remove the caliper bolt on the bottom, from the inside. Lift up the caliper, and the pads should come out. Do your self a favor, and buy Toyota pads, and a shim kit. The kit still comes with anti-seize lube for the top spindle the caliper rides on. You may not need everything in the kit, but you will be glad to have extra parts, in the event you lose something in the process. And, don't forget to put in the horse shoe shaped wire spring clips that straddle the air holes in the rotors. This will keep the pads away from the rotors when you are just driving. If you buy after market pads, they will hang up, stick, and prematurely wear out the rotors, too. They are just not metalurgically compatible when you factor in the break dust, heat, and friction.

How do you change the brake pads on a 2001 Alero?

Its a lot easer than you think each side on the front has four bolts two for the caliper and two for the bracket they both have to come off if you wont to replace the rotors to (its a good idea pads will last longer) the ones on the bracket have rubber things that like to spin grab the metal part with a pair of pliers or channel locks and use a rachet on the other side, then pull the caliper off and pull out the pads. The pads are different so pay attention. When putting this assembly back together you will want to get those floating pins out of there and clean them up real good, as in shiny even if you have to use some steel wool. Then use some good high heat grease, this way your calipers will float nicely without your pads wearing unevenly!

How do you change brake pads on a 1988 Ford Tempo GL?

you unscrew the tire and take it off then there is a center nut unscrew that and the roder sould slide right off I hope that you do not follow those directions. I would hate to see you go thru a red light because of no brakes, and hit someone. A brake job should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing. If you have to ask how to do it, then I do suggest that you have someone else who knows how to do the job, and watch, and learn. Or if not, then a garage, and then watch. You will need certain tools to do this job. You do not unscrew the tire, you take off the lug nuts, and the center nut, does not just unscrew, you need an impact for that, and besides you do not have to touch that nut. The rotor comes off when you remove the tire and the caliper.

How do you change the brake pads on the Saab 93?

Replacing SAAB 9.3 rear brake pads (backing off the caliper piston without requiring use of special tools or re-bleeding the brake system):

Note: SAAB 9.3's DO NOT have an hydraulic actuating piston adjusting screw on the back side of the rear brake caliper/hydraulic actuating piston assembly as the earlier SAAB 900's do.

Assuming that the portion of the procedure involving safely raising and placing the vehicle on jackstands, removing the tire/wheel and removing the rear brake caliper/hydraulic actuating piston assembly from the rear brake caliper/pad carrier bracket went OK, the interesting part then becomes backing off the caliper assembly's hydraulic actuating piston (sometimes referred to as winding the piston in) to provide the additional clearance necessary to permit the caliper/hydraulic actuating piston assembly to then be able to accommodate the new (and therefore thicker) brake pads. It requires that the hydraulic actuating piston be rotated to the right (clockwise) while at the same time being pressed inward. SAAB service garages use a special tool to accomplish this but it can also be accomplished in your home garage with everyday tools as follows:

- use the tips of a pair of heavy needle nosed pliers (or end prong snap ring pliers or a 'U' bent heavy nail's shank clamped in long nose Vice-Grip plier jaws) to engage the two holes on the face of the hydraulic actuating piston to twist the hydraulic piston to the right a few turns until it turns somewhat more freely within its rubber dust seal (lubricating around the edges of the dust seal where it meets the face of the hydraulic piston with brake fluid helps).

- place a piece of 3/16" clear tubing over the the nipple of the brake bleeder valve after removing its dust cover and OPEN THE BLEEDER VALVE keeping the clear tubing pointing upward (important to keep air from possibly entering the hydraulic assembly; a small amount of brake fluid will come out but no air should be allowed to enter)

- apply an 8 inch 'C' clamp which has a ball jointed (hopefully lubricated) pad at the end of the clamp's jack screw such that the clamp's ball jointed pad rests centered on the face of the hydraulic actuating piston and the clamp's fixed pad rests on the back side of the caliper/hydraulic actuating piston assembly. Tighten the 'C' clamp enough so that the clamp will stay in place on its own and then give it another 1/4 turn on the jack screw (do not over tighten it as it would cause damage) .

- now using a pair of channel lock pliers, clamp them firmly around the outer perimeter of the 'C' clamp's ball jointed clamp pad which is resting in contact with the face of the hydraulic actuating piston and turn it 1/4 turn to the right, such that THE PAD AND PISTON ROTATE TOGETHER. If the pad skids on ther face of the piston instead of turning together with it, include a small piece of sandpaper or a knurled (bicycle axle type) washer between the 'C' clamp's pad and the face of the hydraulic actuating piston to improve the grip. The piston MUST turn while being forced inward.

- notice that the 'C' clamp becomes a bit looser as the hydraulic actuating piston retracts slightly with the 1/4 turn so re-tighten the 'C' clamp with a 1/4 turn of its jack screw after each 1/4 turn of the hydraulic actuating piston, repeating this operation until the hydraulic actuating piston has been backed off sufficiently to provide the caliper / hydraulic actuating piston assembly adequate clearance to accommodate the total thickness of the new thicker brake pads and the brake rotor.

- reassemble the caliper/hydraulic actuating piston assembly over the brake rotor with the new rear brake pads in place in the caliper / brake pad carrier bracket and refasten it onto the caliper carrier bracket (with its two Allen head bolts - applying a thin layer of grease to the shanks of the bolts and blue loc-tite reversible thread locker to the threads - replace the dust covers over these two bolts when fully tightened / torqued).

- CLOSE THE BLEEDER VALVE (obviously a most important item) and dry it and its surrounding area off completely.

- Start the engine to power up the hydraulic brake booster and pump the brakes firmly several times which will cause the caliper assembly's hydraulic actuating piston to self adjust the caliper's hydraulic actuating piston into proper relationship with the brake rotor.

- Re-check the bleeder valve to be absolutely sure it had been properly closed and that no brake fluid had issued when pumping the brakes in the step above and replace its dust cover.

- Open the cap on the on the master cylinder's brake fluid reservoir (under hood on the driver side firewall) and replenish any lost brake fluid (using only type DOT 4brake fluid - do not allow any dirt to enter the master cylinder's reservoir)

- Test the hand brake and test drive the vehicle with several hard stops before considering the newly replaced rear brake pad job complete and the vehicle ready to be safely returned to service.

- This is a safety related procedure so please do the work with great care.

How do you change brake pads on a 1999 Chevy Malibu LS?

The best answer to this is to go to your local auto parts store, and buy a Haynes manual. It has step-by-step instructions with pictures that should make it fairly easy. To do this job properly, you will need to also remove the rotors and take them somewhere to be resurfaced and checked for thickness, if they are too thin you will need to replace them. Most machine shops and some auto parts stores will machine rotors.

Do you have to bleed the brakes when you change the pads on a 2000 Mazda Protege?

no, not everytime or every other time. bleeding the brakes eliminates the air in the brake lines. if your pedal goes to the floor, then its a good idea to bleed. it will always help, but not always necessary. caliper has a bleeding screw on it. to bleed have a friend pump the brakes while the bolt is tight. then have him hold, while hes holding you unscrew the bolt until its a weak stream. then repeat when you tighten the bolt. you want no air in the line, which wil cause excess pressure on the brake pedal.

You should always do that - if not know then next time it makes them work so much better.

When replacing pads bleeding is not needed unless you take a fluid line loose. But brake fluid breaks down with time and HEAT, so it's not a bad idea!

Disabling the daytime running lights is a dealer/shop computer program change. When I asked to have it done at a Volvo dealer, the service rep said no way. I pointed out the owners manual said only Canadian models could not be shut off. He said ask sales and I did - they said sure and went back to the shop to tell them it was ok. Now mine are off. PS since I was getting something else done they did not even charge for it.

Put the car on jack stands and remove the wheels. Locate the calipers and brake pads and remove the pins and clips from the calipers. Slide out the old brake pads and push the piston back to make room for the new pads and shims. Slide in the new pads and shims and put the pins, clips and cotter pins back in. The front and rear replacement process are very similar, but have different pads and shims.

How do you change a brake pad on a 1993 Mitsubishi Mirage?

you basically have only 2 bolts to remove (2 different sizes) They are common household size. If you wish to replace the rotor as well you have only 2 more bolts to remove. Make sure you clean off as much brake dust or anything else as you can. With a C clamp take your old brake pad place it over the caliper piston and slowly SLOWLY tighten the clamp to make the piston go as far back as poosible. Slap on your new pads and/or rotors tighten everything down. Before you jump in your car and drive off make sure you pump your brakes with the car off(apply the brake pedal) till if feels stiff, not all cars after replacing brakes will have that new brake feel but aslong as the brake pedal doesn't hit the floor you should be good. Now you can drive your car.
