Hearing squeaking noises from the wheels? This may be the wear tabs on the brake shoes saying, "it is time for replacement." Aging brakes can also result in a pulsation from the brake pedal or long stopping distances. Brakes should be inspected every 10,000 miles. They may need frequent replacement such as every 20,000 miles if used in stop and go traffic. Brakes can last longer if the vehicle is used primarily for long highway trips.

Frequently asked Questions:
- How difficult is it to change pads and rotors?
1. Jack up and properly support the vehicle.
2. Remove the wheel.
3. Remove the caliper mounting bolts. The caliper bolts are usually allen head bolts located at the inside upper corners of the calipers. After removing, clean these bolts with a wire brush and apply some grease to the head surfaces before reinstallation.
4. Remove the caliper by pulling up and forward. Remove the brake shoes from the caliper. Match the old shoes to the new shoes.
5. Use a large c-clamp to force the caliper piston back in to the caliper. Brake fluid may need to be removed from the fluid reservoir during this step. Be sure to align the clamp properly so as not to damage the piston. If you have multi-piston calipers use the old brake shoe to distribute the force of the clamp evenly.
6. Support the caliper. Do not stress the rubber line between the caliper and vehicle. Inspect this line, if it shows any sign of wear replace it.
7. Remove the rotor. The rotor on this vehicle pulls off the wheel hub. A rubber mallet can be carefully used to break the rotor free of the hub.
8. Reverse the procedure to reinstall the rotor, brake shoes, caliper and wheel. Be sure to torque all bolts to the proper specifications. Always do final tightening by hand do not use air impact tools.
9. Repeat for the opposite side.
10. IMPORTANT - Start the car and pump the brake pedal. It may take a few pumps before the calipers and shoes reseat properly on the rotor. Check the fluid again before operating.
- My car has anti-lock (ABS) brakes does this make replacing rotors and pads harder?
- Can I damage my ABS system when replacing the rotors and pads?
- How do I know if my brakes really need replacement?
