1.put a piece of wood under the rear tire, <will prevent car from rolling back> the hood remove the cap on the master cylinder if low on oil do not refill, low fluid is a indication or worn out brakes since its a sealed system unless there is a leak you should never have to replace fluid.3.jack up front end either as a whole or one side at a time use a jack stand under the frame rail, lower car onto jack stand.4. pull the wheel off.5 loosen the caliper bolts normally this is a large hex bolt
remove calipers remove pads look at old pads for un even wear or burns
or cracks indication for bad calipers should be even wear on both pads
check the rotor which is what the wheel bolts too, look for blue-ing
or small cracks grooves etc if you find any replace the caliper or have them turned at a machine shop average price in my state 25 dollars a wheel some times and some places are cheaper to buy new ones get a can of brake cleaner at a parts store you'll need to use specific cleaners other wise there might be a residue and you won't stop,6 get a rag and large pair of channel locks put rag over piston in caliper slowly compress with the master cylinder cap off this should be easy
you do not need to bleed brakes that's only when you crack open a Zerk fitting and we haven't done that here, once piston is compressed all the way into the caliper your ready for new pads, first go wash your hands grease is a brake system worst nightmare most disk brakes come with a little tube of glue called anti chatter glue this is applied to the back of the pads let that sit a minute to set then install the new pads carefully put caliper back onto rotor and re bolt down do a visual check to make sure you did not disconnect anything else.

then put the wheel back on that side is done do the same for the other wheel. with all that said and done now you know how to change the brakes on every car with disk brakes they are all the same type system the only thing that varies is to bolts holding the calipers

SOURCE: electrical diagrams for brake lights and turn

In a Lumina if the brake lights quit working but the upper one in the rear window still works or your tun signals flash weakly or a different speeds the turn signal switch needs replaced. I will cure the problem. Not to hard a job, but does require removing the steering wheel and air bag assembly.

1995 chevy s-10 pickup can't get brake lights to work.

have you checked the fuse box and both brake light bulbs?
check the microswitch on the brake pedal also. once the pedal moves downwards the switch should activate.

if you can check the resistance of the switch with a multimeter then you would expect to see low resistance once you press down on the switch.

My 1995 Chevy Tahoe brake light switch wont stay in position and the brake lights stay on. I replaced the switch and had the same problem.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disable the SIR system (if equipped).
  3. Remove the clip (R/V Series) or unclip the switch (C/K Series) and unplug the electrical connector from the brake light switch.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.
