Brake Caliper Replacemant Diy

Recommended Posts

Hey fellas.

I am in search of a DIY tutorial about front brake caliper replacement. One of the pistons in my front right brake is sticking, and eventually will lock up. So i would like to nip it in the butt, b/f all hell breaks loose on the right side. ha ha

if any of you have or know where to locate this DIY procedure i would greatly appreciate it.

Pics would be a great help too.

Thanks guys.

It's a relatively easy job for the average joe mechanic. Unbolt the old caliper,

throw on the new pads and bolt on the new. The hardest part for me was

loosening the caliper bolts. They were super tight and I needed to use a

breaker bar. Trouble was there wasn't much room in the wheel well but I

managed. You may need a special tool to depress the piston to

fit the new pads. I used a 4'' vise. Hopefully you'll find something more

convenient.
