Raybestos Best in Brakes Brake Job: Inspecting Brake Assembly

In part two of this series, we talk about properly removing the brake assembly. 

Watch part three on YouTube

Step One: Remove Caliper

  • Apply an approved clamp to the brake hose. Do not use a tool like a vice grip that will damage the hose.
  • Open the bleeder screw.
  • Use a C-Clamp to push the piston back. Make sure to use a tube or bucket to catch the fluid.
  • Close the bleeder screw.
  • Once removed, hang the caliper from an appropriate tool. Don't let the caliper hang from the hose.

Step Two: Remove and Inspect Pads

After you remove the pads, make sure to inspect the friction surface. Make sure that the pads are wearing evenly. If the pads are wearing evenly, this means that the brake system is functioning properly.

If the outboard pad is worn more than the inboard pad, this usually means that you have a problem with the caliper guide pins, bushings and/or slides seizing.

If the inboard pad is worn down more than the outboard pad, this means that the caliper piston is not returning to its normal rest position. This usually indicates that the square cut seal has failed.

If there is tapered wear on the pads, it means the pads are not making even contact with the rotor. This could be because the pads weren't installed correctly originally. It could also mean that a single guide pin is seized.
