Thread: rear brakes

  1. #1

    Default rear brakes

    can someone offer advice on changing rear pads/adjusting the handbrake please. Tons of stuff on the net for drums but nothing on pads.
    on a 55 plate 1.1 petrol

    They won’t be much different to front pads , if you’ve done those before now, then you should be fine.
    Also the handbrake will probably come back to normal after doing the pads.

    didn't know if the brake calipers were push or screw back. the handbrake one side has be stuck on, but not rubbing, so gone past its adjustment, cable etc seems fine and been free'd up now but pads were low, so new pads. just couldn't find anything about them or adjustment. how does the handbrake adjust when the foot brake is hydrolic then?

    You could also look in Mitsubishi Colt forums of the some vintage , it’s effectively the same car if you didn’t realise , it was a platform share.

    Rear caliper pistons must be wound back.
