Thank you very much for taking the time to make the nice video!
Thanks dude! Very helpful.
Hi there i have just done everything in the video but my breaks don t feel very good have you any idea s what it could be.
Hi, i just wanted to say thank you for posting this video. This will help me save a little. Plus i love to tinker with things and it s always nice to have a better idea of what will need to be done before hand.
Hi peter, very good video, can i make some observation, to avoid that news pads make sounds after a while of miles, you can grind a or about both extremety of each pad. And not put too much copper grease, because you can finsh without break power! And ruin your disks! It can be really dangerous! So it can be important to notice that! You make a great job, but i think that i was important to notice that. Best regards an mechanic fan from chile fabrizio
You are great. You make it look so easy. This was very informational video. A big thank you.
Great video. Thank you for the detail, and the very clear advice and instructions. Five star help.
Thanks peter your video was great help, denis from ireland
Thank you very much!
Will this be the same for a kia optima sxl?
Awesome tutorial from geoff and cassie in australia. Exactly how i would have done it, my favorite tool is also the crowbar good work mate and keep it up
I wouldnt use pliers against the piston, put the old pad inbetween to protect the piston. Great video, if a little lube overload, kia cee d s seem to go through discs and pads like mad.
Perfect. But must be open the contain of oil break
Oooo, the brakes are on the hoomsie floomsie!
Changing your own brakes will save you money, and once you change them once, you will have learned lots. I am going to teach my daughter how to do this, so she can do her own brakes. Also. Girls are fully possible to do this job, but the dust, is really bad for you, like peter finn indicated, do not inhale, and do not blow the air, be careful, that stuff is really bad for your lungs.
Only less than of dealerships will use lube or paste when doing brake jobs. While over of dealerships and shops use tap water when replacing the coolant. They rarely will use distilled water with antifreeze when it is clearly suggested from the vehicle manuals. Thank you for taking your time to post this video.
Don t forget to remove a small amount of brake fluid. Because when you push the caliper back into it s housing it will raise the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir.
A little bit of knowledge can be dangerous. You have good knowledge of the theory, but you use it in practice poorly. You have made a mess of all the lubricants and have gotten it on the rotors. A little bit goes a long way. Even if you didn t get any on the rotor, all of the excess is sure to spread around when you are driving. Not a good idea.
Why risk breaking your rotor, use a c clamp and the old break pad to push the piston back into the calliper. I didn t use half of the lubricants on my break replacement. And use an old coat hanger to suspend the calliper on the shock spring while working.
I havent done may brake jobs. But i have seen people using a c clamp to move the caliber piston back into position. Thanks for the video ill be doing my optima brakes shortly
