Rear Brake Pads

10 posts in this topic

Hey guy's

Hope you all had a good Christmas!

 

Sorry if this is already been posted but my work computer has classed the words "brake pads" as pornography so I can't search for it.... makes sense

 

Anyway I'm changing the brake pads on my Glanza tomorrow and I was wondering is there any difference when changing them?  I've changed the fronts before and that's simple enough, I assume the rear is much the same but just wondering if there's any difference before I get stuck in.

 

cheers peeps

Hi,

I've just finished replacing the front and rear discs, pads and rebuilt the calipers on my glanza.

It's very simple.

Simply undo 2 caliper bolts remove the caliper / suspend it with a cable tie from the shocks / spring, then there are 2 more bolts holding the pad carrier to the hub. remove those. 

Take the pad carrier away and swap out the old pads with new pads with the clips in the same way.

Then you'll have to rewind the caliper piston. I bought a rewind kit so I have it for the future but you could use say pliers in the grooves. Wind the piston all the way back.

Bolt the pad carrier back on to the hub / brake disc with the 2 bolts that you undid. 

Bolt the caliper back on, 2 bolts and that's it!

That's enough recommendations for me! I'll defo be picking one of these kits up. I've got one really stupid question left, when I changed my pads before a friend go me a set from his work. This time I'm getting a set of Yellow stuff pads from ID Workz but I don't know how many boxes I need to buy. do they come in sets of just 2 or 4? the last ones I had came in a set of 4 but I don't wanna buy 2 boxes of these and have extra pads that I don't need!

 

thanks guys!
