    Bottom bolt holding the caliper to the bracket is a simple 12mm bolt but top on is interesting. Thought at first is was a cap on top of the bolt but now I know that it obviously isnt.

I just did the rear caliper on my '95 Deville Concours and found that the caliper would not rotate enough to slide it off the top bolt. My solution was to remove the parking brake cable bracket bolt behind the caliper. This gave me the ability to rotate the caliper enough to get the caliper off of the brake pads and slide the caliper towards the inside of the car.

Taking the caliper off is suppose to be easy. I guess you have the bottom bolt off? Then the caliper should be able to rotate up on the other guide pin. The top pin is suppose to just pull apart (caliper and caliper bracket) but sometimes that isn't the case. So right where it rotates on the top pin it comes apart right there. Inside is a guide sleeve and another bolt like the bottom. You'll probably need to pound on it with a hammer and flat punch or something near the top pin. This is the back caliper.

What tools do i need to remove rear brake pads on 95 cadillac deville?


You say pads, so I assume that you have rear disk brakes. The only special tool you will need is one to compress the rear calipers. Here is an image of the tool that is available at most all auto part stores.

How to put rear brakes on


Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Replace brake pads as necessary. Special tool is required to retract caliper piston to fit over new pads. (see picture below)
Retract piston in caliper using special tool to rotate clockwise and make sure the notch in the piston is aligned properly so the tab on the inner pad will fit in properly.
Reinstall caliper assembly and caliper mounting bolts.

What do i need to remove a rear rotor off a 1993 cadillac seville


Hello Rodrigo, Thank you for the question - the rotor removal is a simple job on the Seville. I will give you the complete procedure.
Raise and support the vehicle.

Remove the rear tires, unbolt the caliper from the bracket, unbolt the bracket from the spindle and clean and grease all slide plates and slide pins using synthetic caliper grease insuring the new brake pads will slide properly in the clean slide plates, remove old rotors from hub assembly, clean machining oil from braking surfaces of new rotors and install them on the hub assembly, reinstall both brackets on spindles and tighten bolts, using a "c" clamp press the piston back inside both calipers and reinstall both calipers on both brackets and tighten bolts, reinstall tires... torque all lug nuts to 100 ft lbs and place vehicle back on pavement.

DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE. sit in drivers seat and press the brake pedal to the floor several times until the brake pedal feels secure under your foot you are now ready to drive... happy motoring

If the rotor is stuck, smack it with a dead blow, or soft faced hammer--- it will free up

After it is loose, pull it straight off of the wheel studs.

Steps to replacing rear brake pads


A special tool is required to compress the caliper piston on the rear brakes-don't use a C-clamp on the piston.
Raise the vehicle and remove the tire. The rear calipers have only one guide pin. Remove this pin and raise the caliper. Remove the old brake pads. Using the special tool compress the caliper piston-the piston will have one or two slots on it. These slots must in the correct position to remount the caliper. Install the new brake pads and slide the caliper back over the rotor and replace the guide pin. If the caliper doesn't slide over the rotor you'll need to reset the slots on the piston. Replace the tires and you're ready to go.

Can you tell me if it takes special tools to remove the rear brake hub and brake line


No, there are no special tools required beyond everyday hand tools.

Raise the vehicle.
Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle If the vehicle is equipped with rear drum brakes, remove any retainer clips from the wheel mounting studs, then pull the brake drum off the hub and bearing.
If the vehicle is equipped with rear disc brakes perform the following:
Remove the two guide pin bolts securing the front disc brake caliper to the steering knuckle.
Remove the disc brake caliper from the knuckle and brake rotor.
Hang the caliper out of the way using a wire hanger or cord. Do not support the caliper by letting it hang by the hydraulic hose.
Remove any retainer clips from the wheel mounting studs, then pull the brake rotor off the hub and bearing.
Remove the dust cap from the hub and bearing assembly
Remove the retaining nut, then the hub and bearing from the knuckle's spindle

Compressing the rear disc brake caliper on 2008 grand caravan


The rear calipers on these models require a special tool that compresses and turns the piston in at the same time -- most parts stores carry this tool.

It is called a caliper piston press -- and it installs where the pads would go and acts like a c-clamp,when turning handle it will turn the caliper piston backinto the caliper as it compresses it.
Anytime the brake rotor or brake pads are being replaced, the rear caliper piston must be seated (bottomed) to compensate for the new brake rotor or lining. Because the Parking Brake self-adjuster mechanism is attached to the piston, a special seating method is required. The only acceptable method is by rotating the piston back into the bore using Retractor,MILLER Special Tool 8807, . Any other seating method will damage the self-adjuster mechanism.
Good luck and hope this helps.
