Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. Once the tire is off, all you do is take the bolts out of the caliper. There should be two bolts. Once they are out, the caliper will come off and you should be able to fit the pads into the caliper and put the caliper back on. When you take off the caliper, don't mix the top bolt from the bottom. The top fits the top and the bottom bolt fits the bottom. This is for your front brakes. I am not sure if the back brakes are the same or you have drums.

I have a 2005 Kia Amanti, In the past year i have had to replace the Pass. Side Rear brake Pad and rotor three times. It keeps sticking and buring the pad up and groving the rotor.

I was told that my parking brake on my 2002 Kia Sedona is not engaging properly, though there is good tension on the line. I've replaced the rear drum brake pads, and adjusted the parking brake cable that runs from the front to the rear brakes. After all this, the problem is still occurring, and if pushed with the parking brake engaged and the shifter in neutral, it will roll. Any suggestions?

Brake problem I have a 2007 Kia Sedona. When I press the brake pedal I can feel the brakes grab but then the pedal sinks, what might be the cause? Master cylinder, brake booster? The pads and rotors haven't been replaced recently and the line have never been opened to allow are in the lines. Brake fluid level is normal. Any thoughts?


Usually if the booster fails, the pedal is very hard to push enough to make the vehicle stop.If the pedal sinks or is soft, the master cylinder is allowing fluid to bypass the pistons inside. ... 2007 Kia Sedona LX Minivan

2006 Kia LX Van has 60,000 miles front end shutters during braking. Bought and replaced pads with ceramic from napa.Did an alignment job and replaced tires all around with Toyo High Country. The rims are steel with hubcaps and I keep an eye on the inflation. Looking to buy new rotors that are slotted and drilled. Car is well maintained and tires have been rotated properly. Is it worth the time and money for me to replace the rotors and how hard is it to replace them. I have a fairly high level


It's not difficult at all to replace the rotors, I'm sure you wouldn't have a problem changing them, they are the "Top Hat style", the rotor slides onto the hub. Since there isn't alot of steel involved with this design, they often warp, causing a br ... 2006 Kia Sedona

On a 2004 Sorento, are the rear brake 'backing plates' mounted 'outside' of any rear axle seals or gaskets? They need replacement due to corrosion and pieces rusted off. Will be replacing rotors & pads shortly and want to replace the plates at the same time. Need to know if the 'ends' of the axles will need to come off also in order to remove the plates.
