I need to know how to replace the front disc brake pads
My car has 165000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Brake pads can be accessed by unbolting the brake caliper from the torque plate. If you are installing new brake pads, though, such must be done at the same time that the brake rotors are re-surfaced or replaced and all moving components in the brake assembly must be cleaned and re-lubricated with high temperature brake grease as well. Typically, if the existing calipers have 75,000 or more miles on them, they should be replaced with high quality remanufactured calipers to avoid sticky caliper operation which will often ruin new pads and rotors. If you would like an evaluation of your vehicle’s brake system, performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a brake safety inspection and the responding certified mechanic will address any and all concerns that you may have and list for you all brake parts that must be re-conditioned or replaced in order to restore your brake system to like new condition. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
