SOURCE: no fluid come out when bleeding brakes drivers side front

Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault

SOURCE: 2006 Kia Spectra 5 rear brake disc replacement

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot

SOURCE: does it matter what wheel you bleed first on a kia

When bleeding brakes always start at the furthest point from the master cylinder. So start at the passenger's rear and then the next furthest point, the driver's rear, then passenger front and last driver's front. Hope this helps.

Have a 99 Toyota camry n brake light is on after changing right front brake caliper


Master cylinder fluid piston has entered into a brake safe mode.
when the high pressure brake system is opened in any way, the brake master cylinder piston reaches to the far end of the master cylinder which trips the brake system warning light.

This brake light condition is due to sudden loss of brake fluid pressure on the right front brake caliper assembly during the replacement.

Left rear brake caliper bleed valve will ned to be "opened" until master cylinder piston travels into the opposite direction which "resets" the brake system warning light.

Dot 4 brake fluid recommened for most, but not all vehicles.
Reference vehicle to owners manual for replacement fluid is replaced under master cylinder brake system cap.

What size allen wrench do i need for the front brake calipers


For front brake pads replacement you only need usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
Instructions for front brake pads replacement.
For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing.

Important note: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!!
Check brake fluid level and top up as neccessary!

Rear brakes are sticking after changing pads on a 2008 kia optima


dirt in the brake fluid is trapped in the calipers piston causing the piston to keep pressure on the brake pads. you may need to replace that caliper

Trying to replace rear brake pads on 2007 kia cerato got old ones off having problems trying to get new ones on


Make sure you compress brake caliper pistons completely back into caliper. Tip slide one of your owl pads in caliper (piston side) and use a large C clamp to compress piston back into caliper flush.

When I installed the new brake pads on the front of my 2005 kia rio, I could not slide it back over the rotor. Do I need a special tool, or something?


No, you need to squish the caliper pistons back into the caliper so they will fit. Take a big c-clamp and do it very slowly or you will have brake fluid all over the engine. If they are self adj, you need to turn them in with pair of channelock pliers, They will self adj back out after you get going, check it out, hope this helps.

Replace brake pads on 2007 vw polo


Park the polo on level ground, turn the engine off and apply the parking brake. Pull the hood release handle and move to the front of the car.

Lift the hood and remove the master cylinder. Remove one-half of the brake fluid inside the reservoir with a syringe.

Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheels with a tire iron. Place the jack beneath the frame at the back of the Volkswagen and lift the back tires off the ground. Rest the rear axles of the Volkswagen on two jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and take the rear wheels off.

Reach behind the brake caliper to locate the caliper mounting pins. Remove the pins with a 12 mm socket and ratchet. Lift the caliper from the brake rotor and suspend it above the wheel assembly with a bungee cord or wire coat hanger.

Remove the rear brake pads from the slots in the caliper bridge. Inspect the caliper bridge and rotor for damage and significant wear. Replace the rotor if it is warped or badly scored. Scoring of the rotors can lead to break failure and will prematurely wear the new brake pads. Place new brake pads into the slots of the caliper bridge.

Attach the piston depression tool to the caliper. The tool will fit over the back side of the caliper and against the piston inside. Twist the tool's handle to force the piston into the side of the rear caliper. Remove the tool once the caliper piston is totally depressed within the caliper.

Replace the caliper onto the caliper bridge and screw in the caliber mounting pens by hand. Replace the rear wheel onto the wheel bolt and screw on the lug nuts.

Repeat the process for the other side of the rear of the polo. Lift the rear end of the vehicle with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the rear tires to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

Return to the engine compartment. Remove the master cylinder cap and check the level of brake fluid. Place a funnel into the container and fill the reservoir with brake fluid as needed.

Replacing brakes


hiya bonnie if you intend to DIY the brakes ? front pads? or rear shoes ? the front pads are easy enough for you to change in fact the pads/and calipers are virtually the same as ford and peugeot they are sliding type calipers that are held in position by 2x bolts that screw into the pins from rear of caliper when bolts removed the caliper pulls off reassembly is reverse after you push piston back the pads fit into the caliper carrier then refit/secure the caliper and pump brake pedal to take up the pads to discs B4 you move car then!bleed each brake a couple of pumps till fluid is clean the fluid that comes out first will be dirty due to heat absorbsion resulting in spongy pedal you will find pedal is more positive/hard when you bleedbrakes as i suggested brake fluid does absorb heat and moisture over time that is why it is recommended you bleed fluid to clear old fluid in lines nearest the cylinders hope this helps ? if you req further help come back will be glad to help best wishes from rochdale
