    MOHAMMAD AZIM Год назад Hi Chris. As a fan of yours asking a silly question. Do you have any recommendation for substitute 3m Silicone paste with any brand? I want to use "Permatex® Silicone Ceramic Brake Lubricant" for Sliders Pin but getting mixed reviews online as some said it eats up the rubber. Its in my budget range. TIA.

  • Jose Vizcarra
    Jose Vizcarra 10 месяцев назад (изменено) bleeding the breaks is to get any air out of the system, since all he did was change the breaks there's no way that air could've gotten in the system therefore no need to bleed breaks, you would only have to bleed them if you disconnect the caliper or if your breaks feel squishy instead of firm.
  • Darrin G.
    Darrin G. 10 месяцев назад Only if you have to disconnect the Brake Hoses or when replacing Contaminated Brake Fluid or Wheel Cylinders in Brake Drums!
    GRIM REAPER 9 месяцев назад no, the brake line wasn't removed from the caliper

  • Joe Garofalo II
    Joe Garofalo II 8 месяцев назад T-ony alvarado nope, the brake lines were all kept closed so no air could have been introduced into them. If you're replacing the caliper then you would need to bleed it because you have to open up the brake line which could introduce air into the system. So you bleed them to make sure there is no air in it

    Bill Macnab 8 месяцев назад I don't see why, he didn't disconnect the brake line so no air got in the system. Jmo.
  • Octavio Madera
    Octavio Madera 5 месяцев назад @Cuauhtemoc Ramos As long as it's a disk and pad set up like most cars then yes, this video will apply to almost all makes and models. I assume your car d oesnt have drum brakes. You could find the parts you need (rotors, brake pads, and clips) online (amazon) for MUCH cheaper than at any store. Also one thing I don't think he mentioned is that it's necessary to do them in pairs of either the front or back, so make sure you get them in pairs and that they fit your vehicle!

    B Johnson 3 месяца назад @ChrisFix Chris, I have OCD with front end noise on vehicles. Could you explain or maybe a video on what causes them. Maybe a DIY pull off tire front end inspection. I Am at 50k and certain bumps in the road I get a loose clunky noise. When i turn into driveways its squeaky also. There's nothing worse than going to the dealership and making noises at them. THANKS!!!!

  • Jesse B.
    Jesse B. 8 месяцев назад My dad can fix basically everything. Thing is he doesn't want to learn me for some reason. It's so fucking annoying when he offers to repair something for me, then I ask him to only fix it when I'm around because I can learn a thing or 2 from it. Then I used to come back from school or whatever and he fixed it alone. Now I'm starting my masters in mechanical engineering in 1 year with just enough knowledge to change a lightbulb. The thing is, he said his father wasn't handy and therefore had to do everything himself. I kinda feel like he wants me to learn everything myself instead of him teaching me because that's the way he learned it. Can't blame the old fella. Still have a 1982 rusty Honda cm450. When I finish my engineering masters I want to make a café racer from it. Yes I wrote this novel to postpone studying.
