Brake Pad Replacement. This video shows you how to change the brake pads in a 95 Ford Windstar. This process will work for most fords, especially from the 90s. The basic brake change process is similar on most other cars.

😀😕😀😕😀😕😀What also works quite effectively, is to use the OLD brake pad, or a small plate of 1/4 inch steel (mind the tariffs) placed over the piston, then push 'er back. Loosening the bleeder into a bucket or Chrisfix's self-priming bleeder bottle is a good way to get 'er back with very little hassle. Personally, I use these two things on my hands called "Thumbs". Since I never wait until the pads are worn out, I have never had to use a tool for this in the past 36 years. So, folks could try thumbs.Always wear nitrile gloves too. It is amazing how all those little nicks a person normally gets just stop happening. My niece, a heavy duty mechanic at Caterpillar, got me into that, and also wearing a bumper cap to prevent those goose eggs on my noggin!🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂

You forgot to tell the audience to compress the piston again. They might just drive off without knowing it is still lose from brake pads😂.

I think you may have forgotten to let the folks know that they have to open the brake reservoir before doin a brake job because when you compress the piston back in the brake fluid will rise and need to be turkey based out..
benson b (9 месяцев назад)
Hey Chris. Thats it? No need to bleed or top up the fluid?
Mike Lautman (10 месяцев назад)
Compressing the piston directly with the tool seems like a really bad idea. You should use the old brake pads as a buffer so you don't scratch up the piston. Other than that, great video!

When you compress the caliper hydraulic piston make sure you use a brake pad so it will go in evenly instead of pressure at one side. Not necessary but if you got a test by an inspector they recommend you do that.
Derek Bradford (1 год назад)
his is not the right way to push a piston in the right way to do this is to open the bleeder screw put the clamp in the center of the piston and push the piston in
gretschpainter (1 год назад)
That was great! Very informative without any wasted info. Thank You
ChrisFix (1 год назад)
+gretschpainter thanks but this is an old video. Check out my new brake pad and rotor replacement video for an even better and more informative video.
Marco Martinez (1 год назад)
dont you have to bleed the brakes afterwards?
ChrisFix (1 год назад)
Not if you are just changing the brake pads and rotors. the only time you need to bleed the brakes is when you remove a brake line which allows air in the system.
greatpower30 (1 год назад)
Somehow those little metal things the pads sit in got all bent and started scraping. Do I need those or can I rip em out?

Amazingly impressive video instructions UNTIL you get to 7:40 where your use of the caliper tool is a completely wrong. NEVER put pressure on the edge of the caliper piston! You want that tool (or any other tool) CENTERED with the caliper piston .... try this: back off the threads of the tool with enough gap so you can temporarily put back one of the old pads across the caliper piston. (you'll soon be pressing the old brake pad, rather than directly on the piston) This provides smooth and even pressure across the caliper piston's full diameter. (you're together pressing both the pad/caliper back in place. I was already a subscriber of yours btw. You are a very talented producer with these videos, with very detailed information that others would simply overlook. The camera angles and lighting is superb. No one is perfect, so I hope my comments did not offend you. Thanks for your time and effort!

Dude Thank you! but when you use your tool to pushing brake piston back,you can put one of your old brake between piston brake and your tool and then press it back easier!
DaBomDot Com85 (1 год назад)
don't forget to literally pump your brakes before you try taking off in your car. It will set the caliper up against the brakes

What can you use if you don't have a piston compressor?
JJ Anthony (1 год назад)
You can also use a C-clamp
Bobby Bologna (1 год назад)
These brakes and the drum brakes from your Mazda/ford video do also go as far back as the 1970s fords, virtually identical on my '77 f100 just... much much dirtier ;) hehehe

what if we dont have the tool to compress the piston? can we compress the piston with hand also, i dont know how much hard it is
Scott R (1 год назад)
A 'C' clamp or 'G' Clamp as some people refer is around $10AUD at supercheap auto here in Australia. Just go to a car parts place or hardware store and ask for a cheap one. Don't need a massive one, prob around 15-20CM or 6inch (which my one is). A socket set, jack and a big flat head screwdriver helps to pry the brake caliper out (Just don't scratch the shiny rotor/disc part ;),. Use the old brake pad and rest it against the piston(s) and then use the clamp to push it in and make sure the brake fluid depository inside the engine bay is opened up. . Wish I could show you, but I don't have a camera etc. I'm currently doing a Ford Festiva Trio 94 model. And the brake caliper setup is basically the same, but slightly different.

The tool you used the Compress the caliper piston It is ment to be used in the center of the piston not on the edge you will damage it.

Thanks for the great video. Watched it before changing pads on my 2003 Ford Ranger. Some slight differences... my pads had built in shims and didn't come with grease, but I had already bought some grease for the pads anyway. I'll certainly watch your updated one when I feel the need to change my rotors.

Thank you SO much for your instruction style. I watched 3 other videos to learn how to do this and they all went over things like they were speaking to someone who knows what they're going. You took time to speak on details without speaking down and taking time to take the camera and SHOW those details. Changed my front brakes on my Mustang for the first time in my life successfully thanks to you! Great job !
t3chztyl3 (2 года назад)
my rotors feel smooth but im wondering if i still have to get them turned/skimmed to fit in the new pads so they can marry to eachother correctly? thanks for the help in advance
Bub Florkowski (2 года назад)
the rotors are I can tell you y so you can learn as well and teach other people
Bub Florkowski (2 года назад)
those rotor actually are bad chris
Alexzander Nathan (2 года назад)
Don't forget to press the brakes to push that piston back onto the pads. Very important if you are doing both sides :-0
JACK (2 года назад)
what about washing the piston which exert pressure on brake pads, I just recently got replaced the brake pads, but iliterates did not bother to do any of the above things, such as cleaning brake pads housing etc and applying grease
bangbang kill (2 года назад)
man you the best I'm try it out today why pay them when u can do it yourself
laidbak (2 года назад)
did you bleed the brakes
Tom Slover (2 года назад)
Great video, BUT beginners need to know two more things. #1 - When you push back the piston in the caliper, the brake fluid may very well overflow the reservoir on the master cylinder. You need to know how to deal with this. #2 - You need to pump up the brakes in order to make sure the pads are in contact with the rotors before you start driving. Very important. There is nothing like the feeling you get when the car is moving and you step on the brakes and the pedal goes to the floor and you can't stop. Also, the tool for pushing back the piston as shown in the video is being used incorrectly. It should be positioned to push down in the center of the piston, NOT on the edge as was shown. If you don't understand anything in the video, or what I have written here, please get the work done by a professional. A incorrectly done brake job can be a matter of life or death. No kidding. Good luck.

Clamp off brake line. Attach bleeder bottle tool & open bleeder valve. Use C-clamp/special tool to push the piston straight back, all the way in (push on old brake pad).

ThunderWindz (2 года назад)
I've used my brakes for 25.000km now since i saw your video. Now they have starten to come with this sharp noise every time i use 5% of my brakes power. but if i brake a little harder it disapear. i have tried to remove it by braking very hard servel times and it helps in 10 mins but then its back
ThunderWindz (2 года назад)
i change rotors but i used cheap brake pads/rotors since its a car for A-B transport so it will probably be the reason. They brake fine, so think i will keep them for now. Thanks :)
ChrisFix (2 года назад)
+ThunderWindz If you didnt change the brake rotors or you used cheap brake pads they will make noise. I will h ave a video out on all of that soon. For now, this video should help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJDOuZzEAQc

Hey Chris, just changed oil for the first time thanks to your vid! pretty cool knowing I can do something on a car. of course I'm eager for bigger and better things and to become more knowledgeable. I was wondering if you should replace rotors on every brake job or how to tell when to change rotors if you don't need to do it every time.
ChrisFix (2 года назад)
+Matt Foley I suggest replacing the rotors on every brake job or at least get them resurfaced. Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lU6OKQxSg8U
bingo bongo (2 года назад)
i always spray oil all over the area before putting new pads on, it stops them wearing too fast
bingo bongo (2 года назад)
i was skidding i mean kidding. lol
ChrisFix (2 года назад)
+bingo bongo never spray oil on your brakes. Watch this for more info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJDOuZzEAQc
marikakyra (2 года назад)
+bingo bongo - not good advice as you don't want oil on rotors. use grease and only where pads mount and slide per video
marikakyra (2 года назад)
use the old brake pad and then have the spreader against the old pad protecting the piston, Otherwise there is a risk of damaging the piston with the small footprint of the spreader against the piston
ChrisFix (2 года назад)

I started to hear a grind yesterday without warning. Man, this sucks. I'm in the middle of moving and am at the end of my cash until the end of the month. Thanks for this video. I'm going to buy the cheapest pads in the morning and try this out. It looks doable, but then I hope the last mechanic didn't tighten the lugs too much. (fingers crossed)
VideoMenu (2 года назад)
By the way, I hear a grind while on a slow roll. (2012 Transit Connect XLT). Anyone have any ideas why that may occur? I'll know more tomorrow hopefully. But in the meantime, I wonder why that would happen. :( (I swear I didn't know this was coming. Maybe I was getting a squeal, but I always have the radio on.)

Brilliant video. Chris Fix, you gave me the confidence to change the front pads on my Mondeo ST200 (Contour SVT in the States). I have done oil & filter, plugs, fuel, cabin & air filter, plus removed my upper and lower intake manifolds to clean but never dare attempt brakes... until now. First side took an hour from start to finish, other side 20 minutes. Tip for others, I used one of the old pads to lay across the piston when using the rewind tool. Thanks again, probably saved me £50.
