Answer . \nPurchase a repair manual at most parts stores, ( around $12 ) for detailed instructions on this and many other repairs.
If you replace the rear calipers and bleed the rear brakes do you need to bleed the front brakes also?
Answer . \nYes-general rule for hydraulic brakes-start at the wheel furthest from the master cylinder(usually passenger rear) then move to next driver rear,front passenger side and finally drivers sidefront.
Why are the front brakes sticking on your 1992 Ford F250 after you have replaced brake rotors pads calipers brake hoses and master cylinder?
Answer . \nhave you tried the proportioning valve. sometimes dirt will get in there and clog the returns.
You had a leak in your 1994 Pontiac Sunbird's left front caliper you changed it out along with the brake line you still have no brakes what do you do now?
Answer . \n. \nBleed you brake system. Bleed in this order. Start at RR, then LR, RF, and finish at the LF. Make sure you remove all the air, and keep the master cylinder topped off while bleeding to prevent air from entering the system. Use only DOT 3 fluid from a sealed container. If after doi…ng this you still have no brakes, then you have installed it incorectly or you bought a rare bad new caliber. (MORE)
Why do your left front and right rear brakes drag on a 96 Villager having already changed the caliper and ABS and master cylinder?
change the front brake hoses, there is a small plastic inner hose that will break and restrict return fluid flow back to master cylinder thus causing brakes to lock and or drag . Answer . Check the proportioning valve.
Is the braking system on a 1992 Grand Caravan 3.3L non ABS split front rear or diagonal mine seems to lock the right front and left rear?
It is split front and rear. You have two separate brake issues. Iwould pull all four wheels and take apart all four brakesinspecting along the way. The left front could have a frozencaliper piston,caliper slide pins or a damaged/blocked brake hose.The right rear wheel cylinder may be frozen or the b…rake is way outof adjustment. (MORE)

The brake sensor is built into the wheel bearing. The whole unit has to be replaced.. It is best to replace both bearings.. Left wheel and right wheel. 1998 models have the sensors as a separate component - See "Related Questions" below for more
Hello, You always start with the line that is furtherest from the master cylinder which is usually the passenger side back. then the driver side back, passenger side front,driver side front. It usually don't take much for the back just bleed each one two or three times each. Depending on which one y…ou replaced on the front you need to bleed it until there is no air spitting out. You need two people to do this. One to pump the brake and hold it down. while the other bleeds the brakes. BE SURE TO KEEP A CHECK ON THE FLUID!! (MORE)
Answer . Hopefully you've done brakes before, if you have there's really no surprises, just make sure you take off the tires.
Is the front caliper brake bracket the same as the rear caliper brake bracket I have tried to find one and they all seem to have only the rear The slip pin broke off.?
The rear bracket is usually shorter because it only needs to go through an insubstantial part of the frame, instead of the whole fork. If it's long enough, though, it shouldn't make a difference.
I have replaced front calipers rear wheel cylinders and master cylinder but still have a low spongy brake pedal on a 94 Jimmy?
Answer . Did you bench bleed the master cylinder? Check the front flexible brake lines - they may be internally rutured and are blowing up (like a balloon) when you step on the brake
You changed the master cylinder and brakes and calipers on a ford explorer 2wd 1999 abs brake system and it still has air so how do you bled of the brake system?
there should be a bleeder on each caliper it takes two people for this part ive been told that on newer cars it needs to be turned on remove the reservoir cap on the master cylinder have your partner push the brakes three times and on the third push you use an offset wrench to open the bleeder while… the other person is still holding the brake pedal down they should feel it get tight and then go down some. reepeat this several times to make sure all air is out of the line by the way i also like to if the fluid is dark run that out till it becomes clear the dark fluid is old and can become a problem. (MORE)
Answer . Remove wheel Re-install 2 lug nuts to hold rotor in place Disconnect flexible brake line Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor
Answer . yes, when you took the line off, you let air into it. so you will have to bleed them.
Generally, yes. The binding caliper causes the pads to rub against the rotor heating the pads and rotor up. Hot pads and rotor provide less braking under equal pressure (when braking) so the right brake works better. The car will pull toward the better brake.
What would cause my front right wheel brake to lock on my Chevy 1991 c2500 after only 2 months ago I replaced rotors calipers diskes and aligned front end Car pulled left before and after repairs?
on the front right caliper follow your line up to where it attaches to the strut. there will be a metal hanger there that holds the line to the strut alot of time moisture collects here and clogs the line try bending the crimp and loosen the line so it is free the crimp the line with pliers to open… back up. if this doesnt work the line could be collapsed inside and you cant tell from the out and youll need a new brake hose. hope this helps (MORE)
To bleed the ABS brakes on a 1998 Dodge Dakota 4 x 4, two peopleare needed. One person needs to pump the brakes while the otheropens the bleeder and then closes it making sure all air is out ofthe system.
If the front brake caliper is sticking, the disc may be uneven.Brakes that are left to scrape on the disc for a long time beforethey are changed will damage the disc enough to cause sticking orslipping.
How do you bleed the brakes on a 2000 dodge stratus SE Have already bleed front and rear with no success on the front calipers tightening?
A few things to note. Always bleed starting with the furthest wheel away from the master cylinder. So the Dodge might be started with the right rear wheel, then left rear, then passenger front, then driver front if the master cylinder is in front of the driver side. Also check to be sure the caliper… is moving freely. Try compressing the caliper several times, with the brake fluid cap off so as to let the pressure out through the reservoir. Always keep the reservoir full with fluid because if it is empty then air can get back in. According to the service manual...if you have an ABS system on your car then it has to be turned off before you can effectively bleed the brakes out. I tried in vain for over an hour to bleed the right rear brake with little effect when I found this out. It claims that the ABS systmmust be turned off at the dealer, but if you have a mechanic as a friend with a OBD computer it can be done. My answer to this: In general, I do rear wheel drive vehicles by doing the wheel farthest from the master cylinder and so on closer. Some front wheel vehicles may need a criss cross pattern for bleeding, but most can be completed with the standard procedure for bleeding brakes. On slightly older Dodges that I have worked on, I had success with the standard back to front, furthest to closest wheel bleeding. Be sure to check all fittings and connections for any leaking. One trouble spot can be the proportion valve, if equipped, which sometimes need to be bled separately. Or the proportion valve could be faulty and not allowing the system to bleed. When bleeding, make sure the master cylinder reservoir is full and the top is on. If there are no leaks and the brake pedal is still spongy, then the master cylinder may be faulty or the proportion valve. Another possible way to bleed this is by gravity. Gravity bleeding is achieved by lifting the front of the vehicle with a floor jack so that the master cylinder is the highest point in the braking system. Then, with the master cylinder top off and full, open the bleeder of the wheel and wait. The fluid will eventually make it there just by gravity pulling it down. (MORE)
It is time to replace the brake calipers when they begin stickingclosed or do not close all the way. You might also have a caliperthat locks completely which needs to be replaced.
remove tire, take brake caliper off with a 7/16 Allen wrench , use c-clamp or old pads to pry caliper all the way open, install new brakes n reassemble
It sounds like you have air in your brake lines. . It sounds like you have air in your brake lines.
Yes you could use a brake system from a Cobra on a 79-93 but allot of modifications would be needed. First you will want to change the front spindles to a 96-98 year spindles they give the car a slightly better offset, and convert it to 5 lug. These will simply bolt on but you will need to adjust yo…ur tie rod ends. second you will need a brake booster off of an 90-93 Gt and the master cylinder and proportioning valve from a 95-99 v6 or GT. Next you will need to purchase a mounting bracket from northracecars.com this will give you the option of going with 10.5" rotors or 11.5" rotors in the rear. but you will need this bracket to keep the factory offset of the rear of the car. The other option is to go with sn-95 axles off of a 95-98 and press off the abs sensor, but this will set your offset off by 3/4" on each side. Now when you are ordering the calipers and rotors just use 96 cobra in your search field and you will get the right parts you need. Now it will just be slight modifications of the brake lines and getting everything aligned. This way will take some time and effort searching for the parts, but I find eBay is a good spot to look. otherwise there is a cobra kit you can buy for the 79-93 mustangs you can get it from summit or late model restore but it is quite spendy. I have done this conversion on my 83 GT and with brand new Rotors, Calipers, axles and the brackets, along with the used parts I mentioned I did it for under $1200. Also when you order wheels to show off those 13" rotors and calipers you get OEM offset. (MORE)
If the caliper is sticking or leaking it is possible to buy arebuild kit and replace all parts that are worn inside. If thecaliper has a cracked or broken housing then the unit can not berepaired and must be replaced.
what is the best way to bleed brakes when installing new caliper on front left wheel
I just had this problem and it was because I changed the brakes and the new rotors where touching the lower ball joint heat shield. I just had to take a screw driver and bend the metal heat shield just a little and the squeal went away

How do you get brake pressure on a 1995 gmc Yukon with abs after replacing abroken brake line and caliper?
Replace brake fluid in master cylinder keep eye on this fluid level. Open up the bleeder screw on Caliper and let gravity work the fluid out the bleeder screw until steady flow. This could take 15-20 min. Hopefully you added some brake fluid to the new caliper before installing. Once there is a stea…dy flow tighten bleeder screw. You should be good to go !!!!!. Another way is have some one pump the brake pedal until pressure is found and pedal is hard. Keep foot on floor and have someone open bleeder screw on caliper until pedal goes to floor. Keep pedal on floor and tighten bleeder screw. Again keep eye on brake fluid level and add accordingly. repeat this procedure until pedal pressure is good on first pump.....make sure to tighhten bleeder screw and keep eye on brake fluid level (MORE)
"Whichever caliper is frozen, I take it you mean seized, then the steering will pull in the opposite direction, so if the drivers side front caliper is seized, the steering will pull to the left, that is the passenger side front." The answer above is not necessarelly true. I've seen many seized ca…lipers which don't pull the car to one side or the other. The EASIEST WAY to tell if your caliper is seized is by jacking up the car , put it in neutral andwhen the wheel is on the air and start turning it by hand. If the wheel turns easily then the caliper is probabbly not seized, if it's hard tu turn then the calipers are most likely seized. I suppose then to prove the case above using as simple a method as possible is to select a road without traffic flow, then using a brake hose clamp, clamp off one of the front hoses to prevent hydraulic pressure reaching the caliper, by this method one will know the brake cannot work, then drive the car at a reaonable speed in a straight line, holding the steering wheel with both hands and then firmly apply the brake pedal. The steering wheel will turn on the opposite direction, try it and then we can conclude the issue. my 1993 Chevy p/u 4.3engine driver side caliper is seized i removed the tire and found that the brake pads were worn down to almost the riviets. Need to know how toremove and repair calpier? (MORE)
2005 jeep liberty no rear brakes front brakes locking up replaced rear calipers rotors pads master cylinder bled system brakes still don't work?
It sounds like there is a problem with the proportioning valve. I highly advise you to seek professional help with this repair. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be corrected ASAP.
99 grand am and you are tring to replace the brakes on the front but when you try to put the brakes back on the caliper wont line up what do you need to do?
When you say the "caliper won't line up", do you mean that you can't get the new brake pads over the rotor? Most calipers must be opened up when you replace the brake pads. You can usually buy, rent or borrow a specialty tool that opens up the caliper for you. The new brake pads are much thicker t…han the old, worn pads, and the caliper has closed down on the old pads to keep them working. New pads wont' fit until you open up the caliper. If you're describing a different problem, you'll need to clarify. (MORE)

The black rubber brake hose that hooks to the cailber and then runs up to a bracket in the frame where it then hooks to a medal line, has probley come apart on the inside and fluid can't return to the master cylinder when you let off the brakes and it keeps the brake applyed a little bit.

In most cases you remove the two bolts holding caliper to knuckle . -However, you did NOT tell us the make and model of vehicle, so this may not always be the correct way. When asking questions about any vehicle or appliance, make, model and year are essential information.
If you are quick and neat enough about it where you don't drain the whole reservoir, then no. You only need to bleed that line. A trick for bleeding by yourself once your done is to make sure the reservoir is full and the cap is off (don't push the pedal) and open the bleeder on the caliper. Let it …gravity bleed drop by drop until no air is present. Top off fluid and check the pedal (with the cap back on) (MORE)
Have a helper pump the brake pedal several times then hold pressureon it. Loosen the bleeder valve at a wheel caliper, and let fluidout slowly until the pedal reaches the floor.

Sounds like a seized caliper...but it may just be dirt.. caliper was chaged less than two yrs ago(4000mi). and dragging sound,feel disappears with light brake pedal pressure
Jack up the car. Place a jack stand under one of the jack points on the car. Remove the wheel On the back side of the brake caliper there will be a little bleeder valve. Just loosen the valve with an 8mm (pretty sure) wrench. To properly bleed the brakes you will need two people or a "speed… bleeder" from autozone/checker. 1.Press brake pedal 2.loosen bleeder valve 3.tighten bleeder valve 4.pull up pedal 5.Repeat When air bubbles stop coming out of the valve, you're set. Be sure to keep your brake fluid full in the reservoir under the hood or else you will push air into your lines and you need to start all over. (MORE)
Is it safer to squeeze the calipers back or bleed the fluid from the system when changing the brake pads?
Both ways will give you what you want. Squeezing them back tends to push the contaminated / aged fluid back into the system, possibly reaching the master cylinder or ABS unit. Squeezing them back has the advantage, however, of not opening the system to air -- this is a plus only if you aren't famili…ar with brake bleeding procedures. Bleeding the fluid is advantageous because you can verify piston movement without influence from fluid pressure, you won't overflow the master cylinder reservoir, you won't blow out any seals, and the contaminated fluid (if contamination is present) will be purged. I've had good luck with gravity bleeding when time allows. (MORE)
ABS or Anti-lock Brake Systems, were designed to stop one or more of the tyres on a vehicle from stopping (and hence skidding) when the brakes are applied too firmly for the level of grip (friction) between the tyre and the road surface. In theory the brakes will work from very good grip levels i.e.… a dry road and hot "sticky" tyres, to poor levels e.g. low tread depths and deep standing water on the road surface and even when roads are icy. The difficulty with the latter is that all four (if it's a standard passeger car we are considering) wheels may stop turning. The ABS "brain" would say everything is OK, we must have stopped, when in fact the vehicle was in a four wheel slide!!! For this reason, don't think you are invincible if you have ABS and the roads are icy - You will come unstuck! . The answer to the specific question ABS front or rear is simple - Both are necessary or they achieve nothing. If you stop the rear nicely, but the front skids, you will carry on in a straight line. If you stop the front of the car and the rear skids, you will soon find yourself overtaken by your back wheels - Very scary, and there's not a thing you can do!! . This last situation is the one you can avoid by having your best tyres on the rear. YES, I said best on the rear, regardless of whether you have front or rear wheel drive, you can steer the front if you lose a bit of grip, but if the rear loses grip you cannot steer the back axle, (OK get off your high horses all you Nissan Skyline / Honda whatever it was drivers - Most of us can't, and even you don't have independent rear steer!!!) And if you are worried that you will lose some braking on the front, remember that the weight shifts to the front axle as soon as you brake, so this extra downforce more than compensates for the more worn tyres here - Trust me, I've tested this extensively on wet test tracks!

Front brakes are dragging replaced pads rotors calipers and lines but brakes still drag what could it be?
It's rare....because usually the master cylinder will allow pressure to bleed off. Not the other way around. But if you have replaced the calipers, this is the next thing I would check. I suppose it could be sticking.
What would cause the left front caliper not to release replaced the caliper and the hose and no improvement 95 S10 Chevy?

What causes the front disc brakes to get hot and smoke on a 98 neon Iv'e replaced the calipers because the old one had the same problem and it seems to be only the driver side?
my daughter has a 98 neon and it had the same exact problem. What i found was that the left front rubber line was so old that it was collapsing when the brakes got up to operating temp in essence making the brake drag until it almost locked.

No you dont have to. All I did was was pump the brakes with the car running
Possible problem with the caliper, its slides, or collapsed hose. Check for ABS codes. Check that the ABS modulator is not holding pressure to the brake. Check for clogged line or junction. Also there is a check valve on the master cylinder which can hold pressure to both the front left and right re…ar brake. It is called a "dumping unit" in the diagram, but I have not found a use for it, or a proper explanation for why it is there. (MORE)
