Question about 1995 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

95 Deville rear caliper bolts.

I bought a 95 Cadillac Deville this past year from a friend. When I got the car I replaced the front brake pads right away. No problem, similar to other Chevy brakes with the 2 Allen wrench bolts to loosen.

Today I pulled the rear tire to replace the back pads as they've started to squeal. The lower caliper bolt is just a simple hex head, cake. The upper, I have no idea how to loosen it. It seems to have a rubber plug of some sort inserted into the middle and I have pulled on it as hard as I dare trying to pop it out without tearing it. I can't tell if it is an Allen wrench socket that is plugged or what. I see no other possible way to loosen the bolt. Anyone have any idea on this specific vehicle what more I have to do to get the caliper off?

What tools do i need to remove rear brake pads on 95 cadillac deville?


You say pads, so I assume that you have rear disk brakes. The only special tool you will need is one to compress the rear calipers. Here is an image of the tool that is available at most all auto part stores.

Cant remove rear brake pads on 1996 cadillac deville


Only the rust lip on rotor holding the caliper on

Sand off some of the outside rotor step, you can
easily get to

Can pull caliper to you, to compress the piston for
pad clearance

Can open bleeder to make it easier,have to bleed
system every 2 years on all cars anyway.

How to change rear disc brake pads on 2000 cadillac deville


This should be typical of all rear disc brakes on Cadillacs. You will notice the top illustration is incorrect for rear disc brakes with integral park brake, but if you scroll down you'll see the correct application for your problem,

How do you put front brake pads on cadillac sedan deville 1996


Front brakes on all modern cars are disc brakes. The front brakes generally provide 80% of the stopping power, and so tend to wear faster than the rear. Replacing them - pads, rotors and calipers - is quite simple once you understand the process, and can save you a great deal of money. These instructions will include a full front brake replacement. Also, having a service manual for your vehicle will save your sanity, as well as time and money. If you only need pads, or pads and rotors, but not calipers, skip the steps for replacing calipers. Repeat the steps below for each side of the car as necessary.

How do i replace the brakes and rotors on my 1998 Cadillac D'elegance?


This is not to bad, remove the wheel,then remove the caliper by removing the two bolts on the back, next remove the caliper bracket by removing the two rear bolts that hold it to spindle, then slide rotor off, you may have to hit center area of rotor with a hammer to break it free,now use an old pad placed against the caliper piston and use a c clamp to push piston all the way in,next is to clean caliper braket where pads sit apply a little lube to help pads slide and then reverse directions to put back together, heres a couple of diagrams to help,hope this helps.b1aeba7.jpg2b9a623.jpgc54fbe1.jpg

Rear brake caliper removal


I just did the rear caliper on my '95 Deville Concours and found that the caliper would not rotate enough to slide it off the top bolt. My solution was to remove the parking brake cable bracket bolt behind the caliper. This gave me the ability to rotate the caliper enough to get the caliper off of the brake pads and slide the caliper towards the inside of the car.

How do I change my rear brakes on my 2000 Cadillac Seville STS?


you will need to remove the parking brake cable from the caliper then remove the lower slide pin bolt, flip the caliper up and pull out the old pads and install the new ones. You should get the rotors machined for the best braking performance or replace them.
