      The master cylinder is located on the firewall just under the hood in front of the driver seat - easily accessible for replacement / removal. The proportioning valve is located just below the brake master cylinder - also easily accessible.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.

    Passenger Brake Caliper will not release
    I've replaced the caliper and the problem remains. Is there a check valve that would cause this problem

      Are you talking about the front or rear caliper? If rear, check the parking brake cable. The caliper hose could have a fault where it lets fluid go to the caliper but not from.

      Last but not least, I'd check for applicable abs codes.

    Passenger Side Brake will not completely release.
    I've replaced the caliper but the problem remains. It only occurs on the one brake. Is there a check valve that could cause this problem.

    Dealer put on breakes and a new rotor now wants to put in a bearing
    car ran well before repair after had a rythmic thump on front left I believe his mechanic (at the dealership) screw up the break repair???????

      Get a second opinion - and a written estimate for any repairs from the second repair shop. Then (your choice) have the estimate presented to the delearship - for a refund or for them to correct the repairs - as written on the estimate.

      Depending on which bearing you are referring to - but the faulty bearing should have been repaired (replaced) when the brake rotors were installed.

    How to resurface rotors

      Need a machine to resurface, it is more cost effective to get a new rotors... resurfaced rotors are prone to warpping.

      Sounds like the vacuum line to the booster is damaged or the booster is bad. A large vacuum leak will cause the engine to stall (not run).

      Several possibilities; low brake fluid level (check and refill as necessary), low / worn brake pads (replace as required), fluid leak in system; leaking brake lines, flexible brake lines in front.

      Bring it to a skilled mechanic right away if the light goes off but the pedal sinks to the floor.

    I need front brakes. I need pads , callipers and what else?
    Brakes are squealing and sticking
     
    • Bill

      Possibly rotors resurfaced or replaced. They make a compound you smear on back side of disk pads to help with squealing and chatter. Sticking as far as brakes stay on? You will need to check calipers for any leaks and buy a good synthetic brake fluid for bleeding the calipers after installation. A caliper piston depression tool that works would be another good idea, and some brake cleaner spray to remove oil from rotors.

      Check on-line for the many parts supply sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the front brake pad set from around $3.00, the brake calipers from around $11.00 (each), and the brake rotor from around $13.50 (each) for your vehicle.
