MCHENRY, Ill., March 3, 2020 – Raybestos® has further expanded its R-Line brake pad offering with the addition of new part numbers for older vehicle models, according to Kristin Grons, marketing manager for Brake Parts Inc LLC (BPI).
“The Raybestos R-Line now has nearly 1,000 part numbers and covers virtually every type of domestic or import nameplate vehicle that may enter our customers’ bays,” said Grons. “Because our product experts continually review and update our brake part offerings, professional service technicians can rely on Raybestos for the comprehensive coverage of quality brake parts they need to do the job right the first time.”
Raybestos R-Line offers reliable stopping power with broad coverage for cars, vans, SUVs and light trucks. The traditional OE-match ceramic or semi-metallic formulations give the everyday driver the reliability and dependability that they desire. R-Line includes a full selection of components for complete braking system coverage, making it easy for customers to perform a quality brake job.
We recently had a 2014 Jeep Cherokee in our shop for a brake job. The Jeep Cherokee has Electric Parking Brakes (EPB) on the rear brakes.
In order to remove the calipers on the rear brakes, we need to retract the actuator. In some vehicles, particularly older applications with EPBs, you would need a laptop program or a scan tool to retract the actuator. In this case, Jeep allows you to retract the actuator directly from the display screen.
To retract the actuator, follow these steps:
Once the actuator retracts, you still need to compress the piston on the caliper before removing it.
After your brake job, to reset the parking brake, follow these steps:
