GrayES300 Posted October 20, 2006 Share Posted October 20, 2006 I noticed that on my last replacement of my rear brake pads, I couldn't get the rear calipers to open fully to accept the new pads. I think they might be warped or frozen. I was going to try a brake caliper spreader to see if that frees it up. Right now I use a C-clamp when changing pads. If the spreader fails, I will need new calipers I think. How do they come off? I only saw one bolt on the back. When I remove it, is the front supposed to slide off a hidden pin? The caliper does not rotate upward easily and won't slide off as far as I can tell. Am I doing this right? I don't want to force anything and break it. Any thoughts or step-by-step guides would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I have a 2001 ES300. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
