If the caliper is damaged it will not allow the piston to be retracted enough to put the pad in, use a caliper compression tool, available at most parts stores to compress it, otherwise the caliper may need to be replaced.

Cant move gear selector. is there a sensor? after changing the brake pads,i pumped up the brakes,tryed to go for a test drive,cant get truck gear handle to move.


Make sure the brake light switch didn't come loose when you were pumping the brakes... that switch also releases the shifter. It should be located up on the brake pedal arm under the dash

How do i change the brake pads on a 2005 grand prix pontiac


remove the caliper, by removing the two holding bolts, then use a old brake pad against the pistons and a c clamp and push piston all the way in, next is to clean and lube pad mounting surface and the caliper slide pin, then install new pads on bracket then caliper and tighten caliper bolts, heres a diagram to help you,98c6b31.jpg150490f.jpg

Changing the front brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6


no that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man
