you could but at this point I would just leave them alone unless there is a problem in the function of the calipers in which case remove and replace the bolts with new bolts as the used bolts will be stretched
you will remove the one bolt that holds the caliper to the bracket. Once that bolt is removed you can rotate the caliper away from the rotor and then slide it off the other caliper slide. Sometimes you will have to rotate it, remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts and then remove the caliper assembly due to the lack of clearance.
Hello, to replace the rear brake pads follow the following steps:
1. Lift the Chevy Impala with the jack and place it on jack stands.
2. Remove the wheels with a lug-nut wrench and set them aside. The lug-nut wrench can be found in the trunk of your Chevy Impala.
3. Remove the caliper with a ratchet and use a bungee cord to hang the caliper. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose, as the hose might break and cause fluid to leak.
4. Remove the brake caliper bracket from the steering knuckle with a ratchet. Set it aside.
5. Remove the break rotor from the hub. The rotor might require force to be removed; if it does, use a hammer to hit the rotor in the center, where the lug studs are located. Take care not to hit the studs.
6. Remove the new rotor from its packaging and use brake cleaner to remove the grease from the rotor. Grease is applied on the rotor in the factory to inhibit rust during storage.
7. Install the new rotor onto the hub.
8. Install the caliper bracket with new brake pads onto the rotor and fasten it to the steering knuckle. Use a ratchet to tighten the bolts.
9. Open the master cylinder reservoir so you don't break a seal while compressing the brake caliper.
10. Compress the brake caliper with a C-clamp, so that the caliper can fit over the new brake pads. Install the caliper by securing it to the brake caliper bracket with a ratchet.
take the wheels off the front,,remove the 2 bolts holding the brakes caliper to the caliper mount and pull off the caliper,then remove the old pads by popping them out, and the remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket to the hub and then remove the rotor,,,to either resurface it,,or replace it with a new one,,,the put the rotor back on(new one) install the mounting bracket and pads and press the caliper piston in with a pliers and then put it back onto the mounting bracket and then tighten all bolts,and do the other side,,pump up brakes and youre good to go
jack up the rear of the car remove wheels and tires, remove the two caliper bolts, remove old brake pads, using a c clamp push each piston the the caliper bake in install new pads, reinstall caliper install wheels and tires lower the jack and your done
caliper bolts are torque head bolts be sure to have the proper size before trying to change the brakes
Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.
