BMW SERIES 5 E39 E39 Front Brake Caliper Rebuild DIY

Hello folks My 2001 530i had the infamous steering wheel shimmyshake and the culprit was actually a sticky front drivers side brake so I decided to rebuild both of my front calipers and replace the rotors. Below is my first DIY written here so bear with me. I hope it helps a lot of people. It is really not a hard process - the hardest part is just getting the caliper off 1) Jack up the front end of

JEEP WRANGLER I YJ 05 Rubicon left rear brake caliper sticking i think

Hello all this one has me puzzled. Took the jeep for a road trip today. Wife wanted to drive so I let her. About 40 minutes into out trip we both smelt burning brakes. We both assumed it was the big truck in front of us but after it turned off we continued down the road and after a couple miles of still smelling it we pulled over. I got out to check and found the smell was coming from the left rear.

Thanks Dan It became clear after an evening of googling I wasnt going to find these part numbers referencing them for a Jeep Wrangler good on you for noting the calipers from an Explorer . It must be the demand-supply for these rears and youre right about it perhaps being uneconomical to rebuild ourselves but I may try as punishment for having ruined my salvaged pair. Couple questions while Ive got

Based on my weak memory those are phenic pistons. I dont think I could find steel pistons for that caliper although you can get rebuilt calipers with steel pistons (I had steel previously not SS and they corroded). They bushings I think youre referring to are the guide pins (sleeves). Its not hard rebuilding calipers. Heres a good video that shows how to get the piston boot on... httpwww.youtube.comwatchvQXcClOfFmlg

Thanks for the replies I have purchased a Haynes manual and plan on changing the rear brakes myself. Now I have a question about the calipers piston. The repair shop that looked at my truck said that my LR piston was sticking which causes the brake pad to touch the rotor at all times. Looks like a caliper replacement is in my future BUT I read in the Haynes manual that you can actually rebuild the

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Has anyone purchased the correct rear brake caliper from a parts supplier

Id like to know where anyone purchased a rear left brake caliper for a 2002 325i BMW online or otherwise with success Link or part would help too. My original post about the brakes on my 2002 325i stopped working id here ( LINK ). We got to the bottom of this problem being a stuck caliper only for new problem to surface.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Rear calipers sticking

So I installed my new rotors and pads in the front with no issues but the rears gave me trouble. I couldnt get the new pads over the rotor without locking up the rear brakes so I reused the old outer pads which still have a lot of life on them. I feel like the piston isnt going all the way back in with the C-clamp. It sticks out about a sixteenth to an eighth of an inch past the boot after compressing

Its pretty easy but make sure you get a good quality rebuild kit. There have been reports of some poorly fitting piston boots in some. That will eventually cause a rustcorrosion problem on the piston similar to what you have now. You may also want to replace the caliper guide pin bushings theyre not usually included with caliper rebuild kits. Good luck.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Rear caliper problem

Hello all I am a new poster but have been reading the forums for the past year. I just replaced all my rotors and pads (OEM padssensors and Centric rotors). All seemed well until today... the driver rear caliper is possibly frozen . My shop said to replace both calipers rotors and pads on rear of car. The whole set-up has about 800mi on it. I was hoping to replace just the frozen caliper and de-glaze

You should be able to rebuild the calipers and reuse your existing pads and rotors unless you see some abnormal wear or scoring. Its an easy DIY. Theres a link in the wiki. Make sure you clean up and relube the the guide pins and bushings too. My only question is why wasnt this problem addressed 800 miles ago when the brakes were done

FIAT BARCHETTA Rear Brakes

Now this may seem a silly question but we have a seized left rear caliper which has led to the rusting of the disc. I need to replace said disc (Im not going down the skimming route) and having been quoted over 1000 euros to replace both rear discs calipers and pads I am looking to getting the parts myself for around a quarter of that and paying to get them fitted. I believe the equipment in place

I put new discs and pads on my car last year. An easy enough job which takes about an hour a wheel. I put a brief guide in the guide section. If the caliper is seized you will need to strip it clean it and rebuild it. Doing this is fairly straight forward but you will need a caliper repair kit and I dont know where you will this. How old is your car I might have a spare pair of rear calipers but I would need to find them and check them out. Steve

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 rear brake pads changing mistake need advice.

Hello everybody. I was changing my rear brake pads today. So after changing one on the drivers side I accidentally stepped on the brake pedal while I was grabbing something from the glove compartment.

alright im looking for a big brake set up for my mk2b 5 door 1.2 8v with intentions of putting a bigger lump in whats the biggest fronts i can fit under 15s and is there a rear disc beam that will fit cheers

Take the rear beam off an HGT for the rear brakes thats easy enough munkul has provided a guide. As for the front brakes HGT calipers wont actually fit since the hub carriers are different. However Punto GT calipers fit and will give you 257mm x 20mm vented discs. Try to get calipers from a GT3 since these have a larger pad surface area and are less prone to corrosion than GT1 calipers.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 uneven rotor wear

Last summer I replaced pads and rotors on all 4 corners. I recently noticed that the pasenger rear rotor is wearing on the outside more than all the other rotor surfaces. Brakes seem to function normally. SOmetimes at high speed hard braking it seems a little rough from the rear but no pulsing or shaking. I removed cleaned and replaced all pins and i was abe to push all pistons back in with hand force. Any ideas on what would cause this

I agree with Bob the rotor wear looks normal to me. I have also seen my pads wear that way and as I mentioned I had the brass caliper guide inserts in for several years. Ive gone back to stock pads and guides a few months ago. Ill look at them and snap some pics to compare when I pull the calipers for rebuild in a week or two. Our DSC has two stages... DSC and DBC.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Transmission pooped the bed

Was driving down the highway and around 65 mph and there was a loud bang simultaneous with engine RPMs going up a bit. At first thought I hit something but changing RPMs told me it was probably transmission related. I slowed down to about 45 half expecting something similar to happen again. The RPMs were elevated for the speed I was going felt like it was in Drive instead of OD. I made it 3 miles before

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Rotors problem

Hi friends I have a big problem and I need advice from the experts... I bought my E46 6 years ago and I have replaced the rotors 5 times (OR 6) Every time I replace them they warp within 4-6 months. I have repalced them myself since its easy and cost effective.... I thought. 2 years ago a shop charged me 1800.00 to repalce the rotors and Arms with the updated-recommended BMW arms... they said that

Make sure your rear brakes are working properly. Front problems can sometimes be caused by poorly working rear brakes. calipers and guide pins can get stuck and will after awhile. Id do a rebuild on all the calipers. And a complete flush. Its an easy DIY. Or you can buy rebuilt. Doing your own brakes is the easiest way to get mechanical experience and save lot of money.
