Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.

Rear brake not working on Buick Regal 2004

open the bleeder with someones foot on the pedal. If brake fluid sprays out, replace the caliper. If fluid doesn't spray out, replace the brake hose.

Changing pads on a 02 Regal

All you need for the front is a C clamp. Lube the slides and anywhere there is medal contact. For the rear brakes you need a special tool to turn in the caliper. If you buy a chilton or haynes manual it should tell you how to do it.
