Anybody know the link the a mazda enthusiast site. I need to change my wifes front brakes, but didn't see the usual two bolts to pull the caliper off. Seems like there is a trick to it. Anybody else have 1999 626 and know what I'm talking about?

Re: Mazda 626 Enthusiast site? Need Help on Brakes (not_too_shabby)

The bolts to remove the caliper, if I remember correctly from my Probe GT (a mechanically similar car), had a cover on them.All you need to do is take off the bottom one and you should be able to swing the caliper up. Inside there is a little retaining clip made of thin pot metal. be careful not to break that. Haynes makes a manual for the car, I think it was about $12 at Pep Boys http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I saw the cover on the bottom bolt. Didn't think about it swinging up. Thanks. I'll check out pep boys for a manual.

Hrm... If your brakes are anything like my '90 626's brakes, there's 1 bolt on the back of the caliper sliding pin, which when removed, allows the caliper to swing up, allowing removal of the pads. You can try http://www.mx6.com, but that only really covers models up to '97. It might be the same though.
