Rear brake pads for FL350
« on: September 03, 2013, 05:18:11 PM »
Is it a hard job to replace the rear brake pads? Anything I need to look out for in doing the job?

Thanks
Steve

It is common not to be able to get the pin out. I have had to drill it out on a couple. I then put a 1/4" bolt all the way through the caliper to replace it.

I replaced the old brake pads. I still have spongy brakes. The one thing that new pads did correct is that my hand brake holds now. I do not have any leaks in the system. I have bleed the rear brake. Saw a few bubbles come out the first time and clear from then on. They still feel somewhat spongy to me. Are there any adjustments to the brake handle that would make a difference???? Any ideas????
Thanks
Steve

In addition to replacing the rubber lines with braided stainless, I would flush out the hard line. It likely contains what looks like snot. It is compressible so it will add to the sponginess.
