    When I apply my brakes there doesn't appear to be any pressure, why?
    Brake pads are fine, I checked. But when I apply my brakes it doesn't seem they catch. There has been some grinding, and then all of a sudden I slid through a stop and if felt as if brakes weren't there. Could it be a fluid issue, and if so, which container do I ...

    When I apply my brakes there doesn't appear to be any pressure, why?
    I have checked my pads, they're fine. When I apply brakes there doesn't feel like they are clamping down at all. I have slid through stops. Could it be a fluid problem? If so, which container do I check?

    Why do I get a tapping/clicking sound
    when I drive my car starting at around 40 mph I hear a clicking/tapping sound. the cadence remains the same no matter how fast I go. I think it might be my ABS. If that is the case how do I stop this noise?

      the master cylinder has internal seals between the reservoir and the primary bowl usually if these seals are leaking the best thing to do is just replace the entire unit. can you see where the fluid is leaking?

      There is no gasket. Is it leaking out the back of the master cylinder? If so, your
      master cylinder would be the cause.

    The driver side brake light won't work If I remove the tail light assembly and bulb plus the holder for it. It works??
    Once I have the assembly out and remove the socket for the bulb, it will work. When I put it back together it won't work. I've tried 4 different blubs. Same thing.

    Where is the hydraulic brake switch
    The brake lights stopped working and I replaced the fuse someone had put in a 30 amp fuse so that must have blown the inline switch rated for 20 amps.

      did you replace calipers? if so there are bleeder valves on each of the calipers, either with a vaccumm pump (hand operated will work) or a bleed kit (self or two people), start with the farthest line from the master cylinder and bleed the system. if using a pump open the valve and pump until there are no air bubbles in the resivor. Make sure you keep an eye on the level in the master cylinder. repeat on all four lines. if using the self bleed kits follow instructions listed.
      If you didn't replace calipers air should not have gotten into the system. possibility of when you were resetting calipers pushed the brake fluid out of the master cylinder and the fluid needs to be topped off.

    The two guide pins for the front brakes aredlightly different. One has two small groves and ones does not.
    Its a 4-wheel drive 5 speed manual. Which one goes on the tope and which one goes on the bottom?

      Replacement bolts do not have a difference top and bottom. On some cars it is the top one that has a rubber bushing that sits in the groove, but frankly, even me, doing this 36 years has no confirmed reason why. Some say it is anti-rattle to prevent the caliper from "rattling" . The truth I do not know for sure. The clue is that inside one of the caliper bolt holes there is likely the remnants of what was the rubber bushing that slid off the caliper bolt when it was removed. Bottom line: it is not critical at all, what is critical is that the bolts are able to slide freely in both holes with appropriate black brake grease buttered on the bolts and make sure the rubber seals on the caliper brackets are not missing or torn or else in a few months the bolts will freeze up and your brake pads will wear out fast.
