You can get a manual for under $20, such as Haynes, from many parts stores. A simple brake change with no other problems isn't too hard. Generally if you take one side apart at a time, so you can reference what it looked like before you took it apart by looking at the other side, you can easily get it done! Being short on $ the manual will show you how to do lots of other stuff, so it's a good investment!
Good Luck!!

The middle back light doesnt work on my 2004 olds alero. what is that light and do i need it to work if both my brake lights work


I believe you are referring to the "Elevated Brake Light". These lights are mounted in various places depending on the vehicle. Most cars have them mounted on the back deck but it appears yours is mounted inside the trunk lid. In most states, a car must have all lights(including the elevated brake light) functioning to pass vehicle inspection.

Take off the wheel, then use a c-clamp and put it on the back side of the calipers and on the outside brake pad. That will make it easier to take off. Then there will be two bolts with the heads on the inside that go through the caliper that need to be taken off. After that the rotor can simply be beaten off with a rubber mallet, no nut removal neccesary. Then it all goes back on in reverse. Just make sure you pump the brakes up before you take it for a drive so that the piston in the caliper can return back to it's normal state.

Tail/brake light bulb replacement 2004 Olds Alero


In the trunk, in the rear corners, you'll see some plastic "caps" with tabs on them, similar to wing nuts. Remove those, and the taillight comes right off the back of the car. That will allow you to replace the bulbs.
