SOURCE: Rust inside Brake Calipers / Pistons

WD-40 is fine for your calipers. Don't spray it on the pads, and if you spray the discs make sure you wipe them clean before the pads contact the disc. You don't want WD on your pads for obvious reasons.

yes the pistons are removable,there is only a seal in the lip and nothing else inside just brake fluid. if the pistons wont come out it would be better to get a good second hand one from a good m/cycle breaker.if you pump the brake and the pistons dont move i would replace it. hope this helps

SOURCE: Changed rear brake pads. Now, pedal never delivers

you need to bleed the brake, attach a hose into a small can of brake fluid, the other end to caliper bleed valve (5/16), its covered with a little rubber boot on the caliper. pump brake pedal, hold it down, open the valve ( turn left) flluid and air comes out, then close valve.repeat untill no more air comes out and brake pedal becomes stiff, about 10 times

Installed new caliber and rotor caliber still locking up, is master cylinder bad?


when you are done with a brake job it is always important to make sure you can slide the caliper both inward and outward by hand to ensure that there is no sticking, (that is with the pads in place and caliper piston completely depressed into the caliper) it is not rare to find that a piston that is very hard to depress back in the caliper is due to deterioration of the inner lining of the brake hose, if you have problems pushing the piston back into place most likely this is your problem. I have strong hands and is most vehicles I can push the piston back into the caliper by hand.

Compress rear caliber on a mercury montago


I presume your asking HOW to push the brake piston back into the caliper , the rear caliper piston needs to be turned as it is pushed to get it to go back , a tool for this is readily available , without this tool you will struggle

My front brake pads keep holding up...when I drive they get really hot and wont release...what's the deal?


Your brake caliper or your brake hardware is sticking. Pull it apart(two bolts) and push the caliper back in with a spreader or a c-clamp. The grease the brake hardware(where the bolts go in). That might do the trick. If you have a hard time getting the caliper peston back in then you need to replace it and bleed the brake system.

1991 chevy cavalier. how do i re-apply the caliber to the rotor?


jsdurand88, It sounds to me like you just replaced the brake pads although it is not mentioned here. If this is the case then what you have to do is to push the caliper piston back into the caliper. A C-clamp will do just fine here. Use this to push the piston in until it stops and then you should be able to put the caliper back in place. When you put the caliper back be sure to lubricate the sliders. Be sure that you pump your brake pedal a few times before you actually drive the car. Pumping the pedal pushes the piston back out where it belongs for proper brake operation. Good luck with this.

Changing rear brake pads how do you get the caliber piston back in the caliber I have it cmpletely off car does it push straight back like front or does it screw in?


ok try this first get a c-clamp and a piece of wood and compress the piston that way.you could try to open the bleeder screw put if does not compress you need a specail tool .if that tool still does not compress the piston then you need to replace the caliper if that won't work then you need to get a specail caliper tool you should be able to get that at autozone or advaced auto parts they will charge a deposit but you will get that back when you return it .

How do you remove the front disc brakes?


To remove the front disc brakes , you must remove the break caliber assembly . Keep in mind that on some brake calipers a special Torx Drive T40 or T45 must be used to remove the caliber bolts from the spindle assembly . Also , Allen (Hex) bolts are sometimes used . Be sure you have the right tools .
1. Properly block both rear wheels at the front in the back of each wheel.
2. Loosen the lug nuts on both front wheels one turn on each nut.
3.Jack up and support the front of the car on Jack stands with the wheels one to 2in. off the ground.
4. Remove the two bolts on the inside of the caliber the secure it to the spindle .
5.Once the bolts have been removed the caliber should pull straight away from the rotor and spindle assembly .
6.Remove your old brake pads , clean the assembly , properly lubricate the moving parts as necessary , especially the floating sleeve as the assembly is called a floating caliber which means half of the Caliper is bolted to the spindle (inner) but the other half floats (outer).
7.Use a large see clamp centered between the caliper piston and caliper housing to push the piston all the way back into the caliber cylinder by turing (1 turn at a time) the screw until the piston is flush with the caliber face .
8. Install your new brake pads .
9. use the reverse procedure to assemble everything back together. Good luck and be safe....

Changing front rotors on car. Can I remove entire caliber ***.including the mounting bracket or do I have to remove the caliber itself then remove caliber mount bracket? Also, do I have to bleed the...


To replace the rotors, remove the calipers and then just take the rotors off. If you don't open the hydraulic system (you should not need to) no bleeding is necessary, but you will need to retract the caliper pistons using a "c" clamp in order to get them back over the new rotors. Make sure the slide pins that the bolts go through to hold the calipers on are free and that the piston boots are in good condition to avoid any further problems there.

Replacing rear brake pads. I cannot get the calibers to spread and fit the new pads? How does the calibers move back in..


No do not use a c clamp to press the rotor back in unless you plan on breaking your clamp !!!! On that particular model of (Tiburon) the calipers screw back in.
