Still have air inside, because you used gravity feed method.

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: just put new brake caliper on front driver side

Gravity bleed caliper, just open valve and have a coffee break and close it. Did you buy a loaded caliper with new pads on it? Check the rear wheel cylinders they may be the cause of your mushy pedal. They are cheap too.

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

Rear passenger brake dosen't work


Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

Just completed new back pads. Screwed in rear pistons with the tool and adjusted the parking brake. went for a test ride and rear passenger rim and rotor hot and smoking?


you may have to pull that side off and see if the caliper piston moves back in place freely,if not then you will have to replace that caliper and bleed the system.some times when you move the piston back when installing new brakes the piston seal rolls and causes the piston to stick/seize when the pedal is applied.

Trying to change front brakes on 2002 kia rio and the calipers are stuck so I can't slide in brake pads


you need to depress the piston in caliper,try a vice clamp to get that caliper pressed back for clearance!! some calipers screw in if yours has crosshairs on piston you'll need to screw counter clockwise hope this helps!!!!

2006 mercury mailn rear breakpad replacment.I can't compress the breakcillender piston so that the calaper will acept the new pads


Greetings Milan Owner:
You need a C clamp you can pick up any auto parts store or hardware store and must position it to the front center of the piston with piece of wood accross the front piston and rear center of the caliper and turn the screw by its handle until the rubber part of the piston receeds even with caliper. Once even with the caliper you can put the pads on and slide the caliper on to the rotor. You can also carefully with the right wrench or socket open up the valve on the caliper and let some brake fluid out (very little). This will make it easier for the piston to receed into the caliper with a little help from you using a piece of wood to push it in. Using the second option you will definitely have to bleed your brakes to get a hard brake pedal in the car. Do not forget to add more fluid back to the master cylinder. Good Luck[

Brake pads


The brake pads replacement procedure is pretty much the same as on older models.

crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.

Changing front brake pads on a kia rio 2004


ok first you have to take the wheel off
then you will see the caliper there'
there are to bolts behind that take them out
then take the caliper off dont undo nothing else
take the old pads out
use a caliper to push the cylinder back (its what pushes the brake in)
put the new brakes in the same way they came off
do the bolts up
then pump the brakes
is the cylinder is to hard to push back you will have to realse the pressure buy undoing the bleeder then you will have to bleed them again (but in this case they should move easy

Front brakes


on the caliper there should be 2 bolts holding it on. loosen one and pull the other out. lift the caliper up or down remove pads open the master cylinder so that you can compres the piston on the caliper. if you dont open the master sylinder cap it will be very tough. replace pads. tighten bolts nice and snug. then with car off pump brakes till tough. make sure you fill the master sylinder up that way no air gets in to it. if you do you gonna have to bleed the brakes. if that happens start at the passenger side rear then driver side rear then passenger front then driver front. please lemme know if you need help or if i helpd at all
