And three years later, I finally got over my laziness and changed the LAST PAD. And also because I was hearing the brake making a grinding sound...

    I know I'm late to watching this video, but for the love of life, PLEASE don't work on your car anymore.
    I will fix it for free just so you, your family, and everyone else around you is safe.
    You'll have to drive to Colorado, but I would do it.

    Probably you should wear the gloves that the guy gave you

    Exactly how can you be strong as hulk when you loosen the nuts with your foot?

    That whole cleaning bs at you break disc is bs…
    Its always getting dirty.
    Even when you dont drive for a while you see it get rust on it.
    Some garage would say you have to change them because there is rust on it and that bad.
    But there just trying to make you spend money.
    Just go drive a few minutes and use your breaks and the rust is gone.
    Its a magic rust remover…
    Just hit the breaks 🙂

    Some tips to follow instead of listening to electroboom lol:

    1. Please break/tighten your lugs on the ground, THEN jack up the vehicle
    2. NEVER press the brake while the caliper is off, it will push the piston out
    3. When pushing the pistons back, pop the hood and open your brake fluid reservoir. It’s usually in the top right
    4. The squealers will not ruin your rotors, and always clean them with proper brake clean, and don’t rub them with dirty hands like he’d doing in the video
    (Quick tip). Little tip about rotors, if you see cracking on the rotors it’s really dangerous and they need to be replaced. Also look out for marks/streaks (like on his in the video) on the rotors and get them shaved by a shop
    5. This is optional, but it’s best to flush brake line system by bleeding the brakes. Again, you don’t need to, but if your brake hose looks dry rotted or has a big bubble in it, get it looked at

    And yeah, that about it

    As an FYI. Never push the break pedal when the caliper is not engaged onto the rotor… that cylinder WILL pop right out then you must bleed the breaks. 🤔

    No matter how much material is left on the pad, always change all of them at the same time. Also brake grease, use it.
    Also if the pad has gone metal to metal, doesn’t matter how little, change the disc aswell. Both sides no matter how think the disc is.
    You can turn the car on, just don’t press the brake pedal or the piston will shoot out if you do it enough. If it won’t go back in, possibly rusted piston.

    You learn by experience if you experience what you learned "More Often"

    @ElectroBOOM : Dude, you lose the nuts BEFORE jacking up the car.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Temirlan Toleu says:

    To not to struggle like our dear Mehdi with pushing brake piston back in, just do it before you take brake clamp off, by using tire iron) I wrote it because all of the comments aftors were more worry about tightening the nuts on the ground and other very simple mistakes

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mogolfiero says:

    Please break the nuts with the car on the ground next time?
    And also tighten them with the wheel on the ground
    Ok? Ok bye now
