How do i change the front rotors on my 2006 gmc sierra 3500


Remove the wheels
Stick a punch or something sturdy in a rotor cooling hole so it jams against the caliper. Loosen the 8 nuts that can be accessed through the 8 holes in the hub flange.
Remove the calipers from the knuckles and hang them from something other than the brake hose.
Remove the previously loosened 8 rotor nuts.
Tap the rotor with a hammer and it should fall off.

How do I remove the rear rotors on a 2002 Yukon Denali


  1. Release the park brake.
  2. Raise and suitably support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.
  3. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  4. Mark the relationship of the rotor to the hub.
  5. Remove the brake caliper bracket mounting bolts.
Notice: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic's wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from it's mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak.

  1. Remove the brake caliper and brake caliper bracket as an assembly and support with heavy mechanic's wire or equivalent. DO NOT disconnect the hydraulic brake flexible hose from the caliper.
  2. Remove the rotor retaining push nuts from the wheel studs, if applicable.
  3. It may be necessary to strike the end of the hub or the rotor with a deadblow hammer to separate the rotor from the hub.
  4. Remove the rotor by slowly fuming the rotor while pulling the rotor away from the axle.
Installation Procedure

Notice: Whenever the brake rotor has been separated from the wheel bearing flange, clean any rust or foreign material from the mating surface of the rotor and flange with the J42450 hub cleaning kit. Failure to do this may result in increased lateral runout of the rotor and brake pulsation.


  1. Use the J42450-A to clean all rust and contaminants from the mating surface of the hub flange.
  2. Use the J41013 to clean all rust and contaminants from the inside diameter of the hub section of the brake rotor to prevent any foreign material from getting between the brake rotor and the hub flange.
  3. Install the rotor by slowly fuming the rotor while pushing the rotor towards the axle.
  4. Install the caliper and the bracket as an assembly to the vehicle.
  5. Perform the following procedure before installing the caliper bracket mounting bolts.
    • Remove all traces of the original adhesive patch.
    • Clean the threads of the bolt with brake parts cleaner or the equivalent and allow to dry.
    • Apply Threadlocker GM P/N 12345493 (Canadian P/N 10953488) to the threads of the bolt.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.

  1. Install the caliper bracket mounting bolts.
    • For the 15 Series, tighten the brake caliper bracket mounting bolts to 175 Nm (129 ft. lbs.).
    • For the 25 series, tighten the brake caliper bracket mounting bolts to 300 Nm (221 ft. lbs.).
  1. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. With the engine OFF, gradually apply the brake pedal to approximately 2/3 of its travel distance.
  4. Slowly release the brake pedal.
  5. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat steps 9-10 until a firm pedal is obtained. This will properly seat the brake caliper pistons and brake pads.
  6. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level with clean brake fluid.

Rear brake pad installation 99 volkswagen passat


If you can't see diagrams(sometimes happens) let me know and I will get them to you

  1. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the rear wheels.
  2. If equipped, disconnect the brake pad wear sensor from the harness.
  3. Counterhold the lower sliding pin using a thin open-end wrench and remove the caliper-to-sliding pin hex bolt.
  4. Pivot the caliper upward or if necessary remove the upper caliper-to-sliding pin hex bolt.
  5. Using a brake caliper retraction tool, select the appropriate sized piston press arbor and install the tool onto the brake caliper. Following the tool manufacturer's recommendations, use the tool to rotate the caliper piston clockwise as it is pressed into the brake caliper housing, until it is fully retracted.
