How to Remove the Calipers on a Volvo 940


Removing the brake caliper from a Volvo 940 is a job that can be done in about a half hour. Occasionally, the brake caliper can wear out from usage or faulty parts, resulting in brake fluid leaking from the caliper. When this occurs, it is important to remove the caliper as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the Volvo brakes. You can remove the brake caliper yourself, saving you time and money.

Tools Used: Tools, Wood block, Tire tool, Floor jack, Jack stand, Socket wrench set, Open-end wrench

Remove the Calipers

Drive the Volvo 940 onto a flat surface, and place the vehicle in “Park.” Set the emergency brake, and place a wood block behind one of the rear tires. Loosen the tire lug nuts a few turns with a tire tool. Lift the vehicle with a floor jack, and slide a jack stand under the axle near the tire you need to remove.
