Question about 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
Antilock brake systems don't like fluid pushed back through the system.
You should follow good standard practice, by blocking and ensuring the car is stable and safe.
When the wheel is removed, clamp off the flexible brake fluid line. When you push he caliper back to change the pads, do it with the bleed screw open and catch the fluid that comes out. When the caliper is fully depressed, close the bleed screw up. Change the pads, ensure you put anti-squeel on the outter surfaces. Inspect the clips, ensure they are all seated properly.
Check the runout on the rotor, make sure it's not warped. Get them turned or replace them as necessary.
When done, reinstall everything and remove the clamp.
Start the truck, pump the brakes a few times to get fluid back to the front calipers. Inspect the fluid level in the resivoiour to ensure enough fluid is there.
Do some safe test brakes to ensure all is ok.
