How to change brakes powerpoint

  1. 1. By: James Cabarrubias
  2. 2. Jack Stand- to support the vehicle off the ground after its been raised with the floor jack.
  3. 3. Floor Jack- is use to raise the vehicle up in the ground and securing it with a Jack stand.
  4. 4. Lug Wrench and or Impact Wrench- this is use to loosen and remove the wheel nuts from the wheel.
  5. 5. Sockets- use to take out the nuts connected with a ratchet wrench or pneumatic wrench to take the tires out or any other nuts besides the wheel nuts.
  6. 6. C-Clamp- use this to press on to the caliper assembly and push the piston all the way in.
  7. 7. Combination Wrench- use this to loosen and remove the caliper bolts if the bolts are design to use this tools.
  8. 8. Gloves- to protect your hands from the chemicals and dirt that you will encounter during the procedure.
  9. 9. Air Compressor- use for if using pneumatic wrench or impact wrench to take out the tires.
  10. 10. Torque Wrench- use to tighten the nuts on the wheel from the tires to a right torque amount.
  11. 11. Bungee Cord- use this to hold the brake caliper so that it will not damage the brake hose.
  12. 12. Brake Cleaner- use to clean the rotor from dust and oil.
  13. 13. Brake Pads- a new set of brake pads that will fit on to the brake caliper.
  14. 14. Disk Brake – a new set of disk brakes.
  15. 15. Make sure the engine is turn off.Make sure that the vehicle is in park and the handbrake is in engage position.Gather the tools that are needed for the job and put it aside for quick access.Safety is the number one priority.
  16. 16. In order to gain access to the brakes, the vehicle must be raise by a floor jack.Make sure that the vehicle will not roll and you have blocks behind the tires.After all the nuts are loosen then the tire can be remove.
  17. 17.  Vehicle is raised and the jack stand is in place. Double check the jack stand and make sure it’s properly set into the frame and flat to the ground.
  18. 18. Before we start the disassembly on the brake and caliper, it is wise to examine the brake system first of which tool we will need to use. Furthermore, studying the brake system is not bad if you are new about changing brakes and calipers.Knowing where they are and where they go can save time. You can take a picture for further reference if you ever forget which one goes to that position.Once familiarize and know what to do, then start the disassembly process.
  19. 19.  A-Caliper Slide Pins B-Brake Mounting Bolts C-Brake Line Connection Bolt
  20. 20. For quick access to the bolts that is holding the brake caliper, turn the steering wheel to expose the back side of the brake.
  21. 21. Now begin taking the two bolts that are mounted on the caliper using a combination wrench and loosen it.
  22. 22. After removing the two bolts, the next thing that needs to be done is removing the caliper off the mounting bracket.Push back the pistons all the way in by using a C- Clamp.To simply remove the caliper, the pads need to be push back. This can be done by rocking the caliper back and forth or use a small pry bar.
  23. 23.  Push the pads using C-  Remove the caliper once Clamps the pistons are pushed in
  24. 24. Once the caliper is off, make sure that the caliper is NOT dangle or NOT hanging by its brake hose. The hose can be damage or rapture due to the weight of the caliper.Support the caliper using a Bungee Cord and hang it around the shock absorber.
  25. 25. A Bungee Cord issupporting the caliper to prevent stress on the brake hose or damaging it.
  26. 26. Removing the brake pads is easy after the caliper is off.Just slid the pads out from the bracket.
  27. 27. To remove the brake bracket, use a wrench to loosen the two bolts that is holding the bracket.
  28. 28.  Remove the bracket and put it aside.
  29. 29. After the bracket is off, the rotor is just sitting on the hub. Just simply pull the rotor out.
  30. 30. The process is just the reverse.First, use a brake cleaner and wipe it with a cloth to remove the surface oil on the rotor.
  31. 31. Install the new rotor and then the Brake Bracket followed by the bolt.
  32. 32. Make sure that the brake pads are put exactly on where they go.
  33. 33. Make sure that the piston on the caliper is pushed all the way in the caliper or it will be hard to put it back on.
  34. 34. Secure the caliper with its pins and tighten them.Tighten the bolt that is holding the the caliper.
  35. 35. Double check everything that has been done.
  36. 36. It is very important to double check and make sure that everything is in place an tighten before putting back the tires on.Once the final inspection is done, the tires can be put in place and tighten the nuts to its limit with a torque wrench.Take the jack stand out and the floor jack and then lower the vehicle into the ground.
