Ery easy.. Take out the tire. Most car loosen up two bolts/screw on the end and slide the brake pads out/in. If you take out the whole thing then you'll need to open the brake line behind with 10mm to loosen up the what push the brake. Now very very important. Bleed the the brake if it's spongy after installing new brakes.

REPLACED FRONT AND BACK BRAKES ON VEHICLE. HAD ROTORS MACHINED AND PUT BACK ON THE VEHICLE ALONG WITH NEW BRAKE PADS. THE ENTIRE CAR SHAKES WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES AT SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 15 MILES PERR HOUR. THE SHAKING IS NOT IN THE STEERING WHEEL. THINKING IT WAS A FRONT END PROBLEM I REPLACED THE FRONT ROTORS AND PADS AGAIN. BEFORE I REPLACE THE REAR ROTORS AND PADS WHAT COULD STILL BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

I have a 2002 Subaru Outback with a brake problem. Upon replacing the front pads, only the inner pad on each side was worn (down to nothing) while the outer pads were like new. The car has only 45,000 miles. This is the first time that these have been replaced. I'm thinking a bad master cylinder. Could this still be a warranty item? (since it probably never worked correctly) Is this difficult for a backyard mechanic? I've done master cylinders before, but not on a car with anti-lock brakes.


It's an easy fix.. well replacing the pads anyway. ... 2002 Subaru Outback

TRYING TO CHANGE MY FRONT BRAKE PADS ON MY GS300 LEXUS 1993. MY QUESTION IS WHEN I TAKE RIM OFF AND LOOSEN UP THE CALIPER TO RELEASE BRAKE PADS AFTER RE-INSTALLING I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO BLEED THE BRAKES LIKE BACK IN THE DAYS. CURRENTLY MY CAR BRAKE PADDLE IS LIKE IT HAS AIR IN IT. SO IF THERE IS ANY DIRECTION YOU CAN GIVE ME IN REPLACING MY FRONT BRAKE PADS I WOULD APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH


Frank, you are correct, as long as you don't disconnect a brake line at the caliper, or somewhere else, you shouldn't have to bleed the brakes. HOWEVER, you seem to have other issues with the brakes, besides just replacing the pads. Is the master c ... 1994 Lexus GS 300

Pontiac Vibe 2003. After a full stop of the car, there is a slow lowering of a pedal of a brake. At emergency braking the brake system works normally. Front pads and rotors are replaced, rear pads and drums are replaced. The main brake cylinder is replaced. Where is a problem? Thanks Sincerely yours Dmitriy


If there are no fluid leaks than I would bet you replaced the master cylinder with a re-manufactured unit instead of new. The re-manufactured ones are fine as long as you don't mind trying several of them to get one that works. If it is re-manufactur ... Pontiac Vibe

When I brake there is a grinding, groaning sound which sounds like brakes (front), however I had new pads put on and rotars resurfaced. One place told me that subarus need to have organic pads, mine are ceramic, another told me that shims are loose and nothng I can do but wait untill I need the brakes replaced again. Third guy said that front axal is causing braking noise. Do I need new axal to fix noise? At this point I do not know who to trust. I just want to ready the car to sell it. It i

I have replaced brake pads on many cars in the past. This is the first time for replacing them on the front of my 2006 Hyundai Azera Limited (at 65,000 miles).

I replaced the front rotors and break pads on my daughters sunfire now its acting like the booster is loosing vaccum. i know it is not because i checked for any and all possible leaks. what it actually does is when traveling at road speed the first time you apply the brakes the car stops completely normal. if you let off the brake and reapply it ill go all the way to the floor.and takes an extra effort to stop. when i replaced the pads i followed the normal procedures given by most repair manual

I just replaced the front pads on my '98 900S. I also replaced the retaining springs as I lost while doing the job. I took the car for a test drive and know there is a vibration/ severe knocking/clanging from the passenger side that goes away when I apply the brakes. I removed and reinserted the guide pins, along with removing and replacing the reatining spring. Another weird thing that happened, was the brake pedal stuck on the floor once after about the 3rd time applying brakes.


Really, is very stranger this, but I was see that other Saab owners the solution was extremely simple, but not immediately obvious. Someboy could helping with the bleeding phase, pushing the brake \015\012pedal. Some recommend putting a piece of 2x4 ... 1998 Saab 900

Bought a 2005 magum sxt apr. 29. awsome car except for one issue. the front brakes rattle at lower speeds. i know its in the brakes because when i apply the brakes the rattle goes away. i had the front suspension checked out and an allignment done by an expert and the front suspension was tight. i have replaced the caliper brackets, sliders calipers, pads and all the hardware. still rattling. bad design ? is this a common problem with this vehicle ? do they make an upgrade kit for this problem
