Hi all, 

 

Does anyone have any guides, diagrams or videos on how to change front discs and pads on a 2010 Ford Fiesta. 

 

Many thanks

It'll be the same for every car at the fronts, undo the two probably 18MM hex bolts behind the caliper, slide it off, pads fall out, the disc will have be help on by a screw just unscrew it and it'll come off, if it doesnt it'll be siezed, a light tap with a hammer from behind will get it off. just add new disc ( put some grease on the back to stop it seizing again, insert pads into caliper again with copper grease on the back to stop seizing and put it all back together again.

 

With regards to winding the caliper piston, there will be a slot on the back of it, if you dont have a caliper winding too just use a large flathead screw driver but be gentle as the slot isn't very robust, just rotate it until the piston is flush and no more.

Only rear calipers need to be rewound, the front ones will push back. That said you either remove the brake fluid cap and push them back or the safest option is to clamp the hose, open the bleed screw and push them back. Then top up the fluid if required.

Unsure on Fiestas also, my Old Clio has the Bearings in the rear disc itself, unsure if fords are the same but worth checking before you buy.

A more convenient way to save having to bleed the brakes after fitting is to put a self bleed pipe ( the one with the end blanked off and a slit in the pipe) on the nipple, slacken the nipple and force the pads back with a pry bar or wide screwdriver,

The fluid will be expelled into the receptacle without any air getting into the system and with only the need to top up to replace the expelled fluid.

i open brake fluid cap, take calliper off, remove pads, push back piston using this 46-075112.jpg

 

then remove caliper bracket which hold the calliper in place, and the disk should just fall off... as stated always use copper grease when fitting new disks, n pads.... OH get some brake cleaner so you get the oily residue of the disks before fitting them... i also give my pads a quick rub with sandpaper also.....

And clean face area fully otherwise you can get runout issues. Quite straightforward.
