MAZDA 6 I GG GY Porterfield Brake Pads Fitment Issue

Hey Everyone It was brought to my attention that the front brake pads do not fit the calipers on the mazda6. I was reassured by Porterfield that these were the correct brake pads for the mazda6 obviously they made a mistake. For those of you who have not attempted to install the brake pads please hold off on doing so. I will be calling Porterfield on Monday morning to resolve this issue. More than

is nothing more than widening the slot in the pad with a file. I used an air powered file but a hand file will work just fine. When I did mine I filed and checked and filed and checked till one fit properly then I filed the others to match.

MAZDA 6 I GG GY 03&39 Mazda6 Brake Pad Installation

brakes are waaaay low I need to change them ASAP I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on changing the rear brake pads.

Flip the article has the basics but it skips some items such as putting some lube on the ears of the pads where they sit and slide on the mounting bracket as well as lubing the rubber seals on the caliper pins points of rotation etc. You may also want to consider using some brake pad adhesive between the backing plates and pads. In addition if your braking surface looks like that in the pictures consider

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Extremely fast and uneven rear brake pad wear

Ok guys heres another one. I had to change out my rear brake pads because it wasnt passing state inspection. I was very surprise as I put them on the same time as my front brake pads (Hawks HPS).

Im looking for some advice. I personally dont know how to remove the front calipers. I took my car to a shop to get 2 new front rotors and pads put on.

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Uneven brake pad wear. Whats the prob

Hi all I was putting on the summer wheels today when I noticed the my right-rear brake pads where worn down to only 116 in. Yikes time to replace I thought. Then I hade a look at the left-rear brake pads and they had 14 inch left. Hmm... Theres a problem. Im thinking that either 1) My right capiler is not springing back thus wearing down prematurely or 2) My left caliper isnt working at all and all

Thanks guys. I guess Ill just replace the brake pads on both sides of the car and make sure the calipers are well lubed. Ive read that I should also replace the front pads at the same time. Sounds wasteful to me considering that theyre only worn about 40%. I think Ill skip that recommendation. And I feel unconfortable putting new pads on an old disc that has a little ridge at the edge. Im thinking of getting the discs turned (thats the right term - right). thanks again for the feedback.

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Removing calipers

Hi Everyone I want to remove my calipers to clean them up and paint them properly. I dont have a shop manual so Im looking for opinions and tipstricks on how difficult it is to remove and reinstall the calipers on the mazda 6. Are the mounting bolts difficult to access is there a ton of stuff to dismantle Also for anyone that has had them off are there any issues with bleeding them on reassembly Thanks Eric

Racer They are very easy removing them is a breeze taking off your tire will take longer than taking off your calipers. There are 2 bolts holding the front calipers on. After that there will be a single brake line that is also bolted to the caliper. Once you get the caliper undone from the line and the mount you will need to slip a screwdriver in the top of the caliper to press apart the pads. Lean

MAZDA 6 I GG GY The Reason for ABS And Brake Light on

brake light on If the light is on all the time it could mean you simply forgot to release the parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is released then something is amiss. In some cases the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking brake pedal or lever is misadjusted.

Ill try to answer some questions for everyone. First the MC. Ive tried to find the factory spec on this but even without it I believe its 1516 For this reason I may or may not offer the six piston upgrade. There are three reasons first the added displacement of the fluid may well tax the mc this results in a lower pedal and a softer one.

MAZDA 6 I GG GY New Rotors

So im one of the unfortunate ones that have the 03 models with the defective rotors that warped to hell. i noticed it started to warp at around 28k on the car and i still had roughly 50% on the stock pads. i took the car the dealers to try to have them replace the rotors as defective. they said nope and told me it was fine and gave me the could not duplicate problem bull crap when i told them about

look of the slottedsimulated drilled but I&39m still a little weary of what they look like when the rotors begin warp from normal use. I finally ordered new rotors today too. I got the Rotora OEM replacement rotors. I almost went with stock again since I don&39t want slotted or drilled. On a last second whim I checked RPM and noticed they had 20 off a complete set of rotors. The cost ended up 250

MAZDA 6 I GG GY EBC Green & Redstuff Parts

front - DP21465 (Not yet listed on their website [Yet orderable through Pep Boys...]) Rear - Greenstuff DP2729 Redstuff DP3729 Eric (Tireswap) warns against Greenstuff in auto-x use it has poor fade resistance but good for those whose goal is to be lazy as possible when it comes to cleaning their wheels. The Redstuff are semi-metallics with high-performance in mind but again Eric warns that if the wheels are not constantly kept clean it (the brake dust) can damage the clearcoat on the wheels.

Whatever you do do not get EBC Greenstuff. I have SS brakes w 13inch rotors and 4piston calipers (custom made) on my front end. They came w EBC Greenstuff however EBC is not announcing that it is discounting them so dont buy. They suck they squeek so much. So the company is sending me new pads free of charge. Stay away from Greenstuff and Redstuff.
