take this up with your service provider as a non service may attract a refund on your account. Read the details as there may be certain areas that are known dead spots regardless of the satellite.

Removal & Installation


CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
  3. Remove some brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  4. Disconnect and plug the brake fluid line from the caliper.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolt and guide bolt and remove the caliper from the mount. The brackets can be removed for additional work space.
  6. Remove the brake pads and clips from the caliper. Inspect the brake pads for wear; replace them, if necessary.

To install:

Did 1989 Chevy trucks have asbestos brake shoes in the rear (no guessing, need to know for sure and find documentation)


vehicles of this age would have been fitted as original with asbestos lined shoes with little bits of copper wire like stuff in them for sure ,but a 20 yr old vehicle would surely have had a least one brake reline

The brake rotor can be removed without separating the caliper from the mounting bracket.
  1. Release the parking brake.
  2. Remove 2/3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle.
  4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Remove the caliper and mounting bracket as an assembly.
  6. Hang the caliper and mounting bracket assembly from the suspension using mechanics wire.
  7. Remove the rotor. Slowly turn the rotor while pulling the rotor away from the axle. (15 series).
  8. Remove the rotor. Slowly turn the rotor while pulling the rotor away from the axle. (25 series).
    NOTE If the rotor is stuck to the hub, try using a slide hammer to free it.

To install:
WARNING Whenever the brake rotor has been separated from the hub/axle flange, any rust or contaminants should be cleaned from the hub/axle flange and the brake rotor mating surfaces. Failure to do this may result in excessive assembled lateral run-out (LRO) of the brake rotor, which could lead to brake pulsation.

  1. Thoroughly clean any rust or corrosion from the mating surface of the hub/axle flange.
  2. Thoroughly clean any rust or corrosion from the mating surface and mounting surface of the brake rotor.
  3. Inspect the mating surfaces of the hub/axle flange and the rotor to ensure that there are no foreign particles or debris remaining.
  4. Install the rotor. Slowly turn the rotor while pushing the rotor towards the axle. (15 series).
  5. Install the rotor. Slowly turn the rotor while pushing the rotor towards the axle. (25 series).
  6. Install the caliper and the mounting bracket as an assembly.
  7. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and remove the wheel.
  3. Mark the relationship of the drum to the hub and pull the drum from the brake assembly.

If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.
To install:
  1. Align the mark on the drum to mark on hub and install drum
  2. Align the mark on the wheel to mark on drum and install wheel
  3. Adjust brake lining as needed. Pump brakes
