SOURCE: replace brake pads on chev. colorado pick-up

90% of the time the sequence is identical.

Slacken wheelnuts.
Jack up and support on axle stand.
Remove roadwheel.

There should be two bolts holding the brake caliper on - usually on the inside.
Slacken both, but only remove the lower one.
The caliper should then be able to swing up pivoting on the top bolt.
You can remove this top bolt, but support the weight of the assembly with wire to the suspension spring - so as not to stress the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and clean the areas the pads seat on.

Push back the pistons. Some require a special tool, most make do with a wooden packer and suitable large lever - or G clamp.

Fit new pads. Pay particular attention to any fitting clips, springs, rods or pins that are needed.

With new pads in, swing down caliper into position. Fit new attatchment bolts or use a threadlock on fixings. & tighten.

Still with wheel off, depress brake pedal to activate brakes - & check for leaks and working.
With foot off brake, check hub turns with no problems.
Refit wheel and repeat for other side.

ALWAYS replace brakes in axle pairs.

Hope this helps.

Is it possible the switch is not adjusted correctly ?
Are you getting power in and out of the switch without pressing on the pedal ?

BRAKE LIGHTS DO NOT WORK, AND BULBS ARE GOOD AND FUSE.


The problem is in one of two areas. Either the brake light switch near the brake pedal is faulty or your ground is poor. Unless you are mechanically inclined the best and cheapest way to solve this is to go to any autoelectric shop. You can find them in the yellow pages under autoelectric.
