Auto Repair & Maintenance : How to Change Car Brakes


Good afternoon my name is Tom Brintzenhofe
I’m here out of Reading, Pennsylvania to show
you how to change car brakes. I’ve already
got the wheel off, I got this thing up and
supported to make time a little bit easier.
What you want to do is look at your assembly
here your brake caliper, the only typically
just two bolts holding it in. I’ve already
located and loosened the bolts for you. You
are going to take them out or take on of them
out. Rotate this upwards it’s going to expose
your entry front brake pads, real simple just
pull them right out. And again make sure you
hold on to this. The last thing you want to
do is drop that down on your fingers. Grab
one of your brand new brake pads and slide
it in there. Ok you want to take your inside
brake pad stick it in the holder there, get
in the back one. Take your old brake pad either
way it doesn’t matter that way or that way.
Grab your brake tool you can find it in any
local parts store. They are under ten dollars.
You want to slide that in here and push that
in there to get both pistons you can actually
see it going back in. You want to make sure
both of them are all the way in, get them
turned in there like that.
Slide your caliber back over your new brake
pads get your bolts back in tighten everything
back up just remember pump your brake pedal
up a few times before you go pulling out because
your piston won’t be exposed on your brake
pads right away. That’s all you need to do.
Tighten her up and you are good to go.
