How can you tell if you need a new brake switch or change brake lights . Only the passenger side the brake lights comes on and off. Dim.

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 (3 месяца назад)
Hey Chris. Thats it? No need to bleed or top up the fluid?
Mike Lautman (4 месяца 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!

CHRIS HI! THIS QUESTION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS VIDEO! HAVE YOU EVER HAD OR COME ACROSS WHERE THE ODOMETER LIGHT GOES OFF & ON WHEN IT WANTS TO ! HOW HARD IS IT TO REPLACE OR RESOLDER WHERE IT'S CRACKED MAYBE? I FIGURE THE COMPUTER KEEPS THE MILEAGE & SENDS IT TO DISPLAY ON THE DASH? THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIDEOS & HELP! BE SAFE! HAVE FUN!

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 (6 месяцев 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 (6 месяцев назад)
That was great! Very informative without any wasted info. Thank You
ChrisFix (6 месяцев 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 (7 месяцев назад)
dont you have to bleed the brakes afterwards?
ChrisFix (7 месяцев 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 (7 месяцев 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!

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.

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 !

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

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 (1 год 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

man you the best I'm try it out today why pay them when u can do it yourself
laidbak (1 год назад)
did you bleed the brakes
Tom Slover (1 год 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 :)

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

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)

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.

Hey Chris, I've replaced my rear wheel cylinders, shoes, calipers, pads, rotors, and a few brake lines. I completely bled every wheel until no air bubbles were there, but the brake pedal feels pretty soft until you get around halfway to the floor. By then, it feels great, and there is no brake fade at all. Shouldn't the brakes be firm right from the top of the pedal? The pedal feels much better than it used to, but it doesn't feel like a new cars would.
***Classified*** (2 года назад)
+ChrisFix I've done that. Drove a new dealer car, and the brakes feel f'ing amazing. Mine feel like crap compared to the brand new car, but they still work ok. I've driven a lot worse for sure.  Are you saying the master cylinder is at fault? How do you replace one of those without getting a ton of air into the brake system?
ChrisFix (2 года назад)
+***Classified*** Could be the master cylinder is not 100%. The brakes should feel firm and you should feel confident that you can stop easily. Go drive another car and then get in yours and see the difference.

WreckDiver99 (2 года назад)
Chris, been following for about a week now, but 2 things. 1) The pison tool shouldn't be used on the edge of the piston as you showed, it should go down to the bottom middle of that piston (and also, don't try this on the back piston as that requires a special tool). 2) You should crack the Master Cylinder cover to release pressure. I know this is an old video, but people are still watching this. If you don't crack that master cylinder top open you are building up an extreme amount of pressure.

I have seen your other videos on chaining rotors. To remove this rotor all you have to do is remove the bolt in the center and it comes off?
ChrisFix (2 года назад)
+IVJokerIV Changing the rotors on this is the same as in my other videos. There are two caliper bracket bolts you need to take off.
