    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 Год 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. 11 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 11 месяцев назад no, the brake line wasn't removed from the caliper
  • Darrin G.
    Darrin G. 11 месяцев назад Then there's no need to bleed!

  • Joe Garofalo II
    Joe Garofalo II 10 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 10 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 7 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 5 месяцев 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. 10 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.

  • Cochise Bryant
    Cochise Bryant 1 месяц назад @ChrisFix I want to say so much more, but after my dad passed away last year I lost my rock for everything automotive related. I knew basics, but having my dad to rely upon when I wanted to work on a vehicle just gave me so much peace. A few months ago I donated a kidney to a friend and have been out of work for awhile. Things started happening to my vehicles and I didn't want to lose money to a mechanic. I was still dealing with not being able to pick up the phone and call my dad for help, so I turned to your channel. I needed to fix a tie rod and my brakes. Your videos gave me so much help, and most importantly....peace of mind, to fix the problems on my own. I may not have my dad any more to call upon, but thank you for your videos because rest assured that I am not the only one missing their dad when help is needed and you have filled that void 💯

You have empowered me as a woman to do the jobs myself and have saved me a good sum of money. I do know how to use tools and am mechanically inclined and you just give me the extra boost and confidence I need to do it myself. Please NEVER stop making these videos..You are the BEST.

  • Living-well on-less
    Living-well on-less 4 месяца назад There's a lot of ripoff channels on youtube that lie and give bad if not dangerous advice, this is NOT one of them. I retired from GM, I have worked on cars ,trucks and motorcycles since I was 10 and this is the best channel for auto repairs available. I retired in 2006 so I have to stay on top of anything new like the no-fill transmissions (which you have already covered in another video) if I want to continue doing my own repairs! Thank you for an awesome channel, keep up the good work! And for anyone that may be wondering if this channel is legit, everything Chris is doing is first class, top notch exactly as it should be done, YOU CAN TRUST THE ADVICE HE IS GIVING!

Tip 2: always speaking about safety and how to proceed to not demange the car or ourselves. Tip3: straight to the point with a first summary of what gonna happen (without bullshit) Tip4: i change the brakes of my car and im an electronic engineer who knows nothing of mechanics. If i can do it for sure you can to! THANKS CHRIS FROM PORTUGAL!
