Re: New Member-need help with brakes

Are trying to replace the pads and rotors or just the pads?

Are you trying to replace just pads or pads and rotors?

Re: New Member-need help with brakes

I was trying to replace the pads and remove the discs so they could be resurfaced. I finally figured out that they were just stuck with rust. After using some penetrating oil and letting it soak, I was finally able to free the discs. Job is done. Thanks for the replies.

Re: New Member-need help with brakes

When you remove the Caliper (sliding) bolts, make sure to clean then apply a small film of grease on the inner smooth portion of the bolt and an anti-seize on the threads. If you live in an area that goes through a lot of snow in the winter, i highly recommend that you use anti-seize on the threads of the Caliper and Adapter bolts. If you need a drawing for the full caliper assembly, let me know.

Do yourself a favor and get new rotors. Resurfacing is a thing if the past. By the time you get through a quarter of your new pads your rotors will be too thin and you'll have brake pulsing and warping. Do it right the first time.

I am with you. Replacing the rotors is the way but sometimes cost is a factor. Most new cars come with semi-metallic or ceramic pads that are not harsh on the rotors like the old pads. Also since they are the rear brakes resurfacing them should be fine.

You can get Duralast brakes from Autozone for dirt cheap which would be better than "should" be fine.

Re: New Member-need help with brakes

In the future if discs are stuck or rusted just give it a smack with a rubber hammer. They break loose right away, if not hit it multiple times and they pop off. Cheers
