Rear brakes on 2005 F-150
\015 I am trying to replace the rear brake pads & rotors of my 2005 F-150. I got the caliper & rotor off easy enough But even with a C-clamp I can't seem to push in the brake piston so I can replace the caliper. I've never bled brakes before so I'm a little foggy on the bleed valve location, what it looks like, etc. I've always been the helper in the car pumping the brakes. any help would be appreciated.\015
If you can't compress the piston with reasonable ease...you may have a frozen caliper. It does not "screw in" like GM models. It either presses back into caliper or it doesn't. If it's that hard to press it back in...get a new caliper.

Brakes (rear) Previous owner (1 month ago) changed the left rear brake cylinder. Pedal felt spongy when I bought the truck, so I bled the right rear, then the left rear brake cylinders. I'm 99.99% positive that I had no air left in those cylinders, and the master cylinder was kept topped-off the whole time. However, now the BRAKE light comes on whenever I press the brake pedal. What did I do wrong, or is there something else I should look at?

I have a busted rear brake line on my 97 Malibu(V6). Stranded outside city limits. In order to ger into town I need to disconnect rear line at the master cyclinder. Is it the front line for the front brakes and the rear one for rear brakes or the other way around? Please help. I only have 1 small bottle of brake fliud and am just a few clicks from a service station.
Disconnecting the line won't stop the fluid from leaking out. Your best bet would be to use a pair of Vise-Grips and pinch the line off where it is broken. You'll probably have to pinch it a couple of times to get it to stop leaking or only seep a li ... 1997 Chevrolet Malibu

1997 Montero 4x4 Rear brake calipers are frozen and dragging on the rotors. I need to release the pressure by the bleeder screw so that I can drive to repair shop. Will I still have front brake function if I loosen the bleeder on both rears or only 1 of the rear wheels?

Question 1: How do i remove the rear rotor on my 1990 chevy Lumina Euro 3.1? I can't just pull it off. Is it just stuck or do i need to remove some kind of nut keeping it on? If so, where is it located? Question 2: On the front brakes, the brake pad that's controlled by the piston hits the rotor causing the rotor to move and make contact with the outter non piston controled brake pad...Does the rear break pads work the same? If not, how do they work?

I only need the 3 brake line ports, which brake connects to which port.

Right rear brake light doesn't work, on my 2001 Z-06 Corvette. Took it to the dealership a long time ago for the recall on the steering column. When I got it back the brake light didn't work and the dealership wanted an additional $700 or so to fix it. Then the column key control wouldn't let me drive over 1 mile per hour a few years later and the dealership charged me $700 but still didn't fix the brake light, they said that would be an additional $700.00 So how can i fix this without getting
