SOURCE: front brake pads

Just did this tonight... 7/21/08

You need a torx head T-55 Star Socket to remove the caliper bolt(s) and a large 3/4 in preferably with a 1/2 dr and large breaker bar or torque wrench with a 1/2 in dr. to remove the knuckle bolts. I should've taken pictures, but I did not. After studying this exact issue for an hour or so, I finally got everything to click. Steps as I proceeded. Loosen the top caliper nut using the T-55 torx bit, this will take some doing, if possible, use a breaker bar or something comparable, I used a standard 3/8 in. socket wrench and about a foot long hollow metal tube on the end as the breaker and after some muscle work (ouch!!) got it loose. Now there are 2 bolts that hold the caliper in place that need to come out. I used a 3/4 in socket on a 1/2 breaker bar to get these to break. I don't have the exact torque specs to put these back on, but I went about 40lbs on the knuckle bolts and closer to 80lbs on the caliper torx head screw. Once you have the caliper torx head bolt loose and the other 2 nuts off, you can rotate the caliper. Using a C-Clamp, compress the caliper so that it is completely compressed. Now, remove the torx head bolt and the pad assembly will swing out, at this point, you can remove the old pads and clips if you are replacing them as well. Reverse the order for installation using Lock-tite and the caliper grease you get from the parts store. I hope I don't have to mention removing the tires, using jack stands and being completely safe under there. Good Luck. The first side took me about 3 hours considering time and studying, the second side took about half an hour after already knowing what to do.. It gets easier each time you do it.

So far, I have replaced 2 fuel pumps (at home) first one took about 7 hours, second time around, only took about 2 hours. Front and Rear brake jobs. numerous small items, now I'm looking at a blinker switch (problem with left turn signal... rapid click, no light).. Also, the dash panel either needs repaired or replaced as the fuel gage is constantly up and down. If you or someone else has a suggestion here, I would appreciate it.

Thanks and remember... Practice Safe "Do it yourself"..!

SOURCE: Replace front brake pads

1. Loosen lugs to wheel with wheel on the ground. Remove AFTER jacking the wheel into the air.
2. 2 bolts hold brake caliper to the suspension. Located on the inboard side of caliper. Usually is a regular hex bolt or an allen head. You may need to persuade them loose at first with a hammer or extra leverage.
3. caliper can be lifted off rotor exposing the pads. Be sure to note how the pads look in place so you can replace the new ones in the correct spot.
4. Depress the caliper piston completely back into cylinder with large channel lock pliers. be careful not to scar in any way.
4. put small amount of lube grease on bolt when reinstalling.
Good luck.. say a prayer and go for it.

SOURCE: how do I change front brake pads

You will first need to have a car jack, proceed to jack up the front side of the car you want to work on. Make sure you place the jack on the proper location, refer to instruction in manual. Take off your tire, now the whole brake assembly is visible, there will be two bolts on back of the brake unit. One at the top and one at the bottom. Unscrew both of these and proceed to slide the used pads and the unit you've just unscrewed. Make sure you clean off all dirt, rust and break pad rosedew. Now you'll need a C-clamp, The piece with the rubber protector on it needs to be compressed back into its compartment with the use of your C-clamp. Now that the unit is clean and the compressor is back in the chamber it's time to replace the small steel break sliders with the new ones provided with your new break set, slide your new breaks into those slots, beside the router. Your almost finished, just slide the break compressor back over the breaks and bolt the unit back on, make sure you tighten the bolts well , as these are your breaks and they will save your life. The only thing to do now is clean your tire inside and out while its off and put it back on your car. Have fun and don't worry it's easy.

Hope this helps...I know it's extremely difficult to find manuals for these cars. These instructions are straight out of the factory service manual.

BCM location 2012 camaro ss


It is located behind the dash , I believe behind the radio. I have a 2010 and the models haven't changed that much. Through the years the bcm has always been located somewhere between the glove box and console by the radio. DO NOT DISCONNECT IT WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT YOU ARE DOING. They are flashed with codes and data that are specific to that car. If you remove it without reprogramming, your car is dead in the water and only an authorized dearler can reflash it . Doing it any other way will kill it.

So I just changed the clutch master cylinder and the braided brake line in my 2000 camaro ss and am trying to bleed the system. The routine I'm using is typical. Pump the pedal 30 times keep it depres


you have someone helping you right? cuz you cant do it yourself, and the brakes need to be pumped only enough to get a solid midway stop of pedal travel, and with the brake still depressed by your assistant, you open the bleeder a bit until the pedal goes to the floor, you tighten bleeder, they then release brake pedal and pump it up again, rinse, repeat, until there is no spongy feel in brake pedal

Front brake rotors are warped, time to do a brakes job, make sure calipers float on pins and that you replace rotors, aftermarket are cheaper than G.M. but hold up just as well, change pads and lube the slides in calipers
