SOURCE: how to change rear brake pads on 97 park avenue

To change Rear Brake Pads on a 1997 Buick Park Avenue. Remove the bottom bolt on the caliper. The top has a non removable pivot pin. Remove the bolt that holds the brake emergency brake to the frame. Remove the 2 bolts in the rear of the axle plate that hold the caliper in place. (they take a #18 metric socket and you may need a breaker bar to loosen them) With the caliper free from the mount, swing the pad holder up on the top pivot pin and remove the old shoes and replace. Turn the caliper piston clockwise and inboard with a caliper disk brake tool (harbour freight about 19 bucks). Flip the shoe holder part of the caliper back in place and put the assembly back over the rotor. Re install the bolts (blue locktite on the caliper mount bolts and tighten slight snug with breaker bar) retighten the bottom caliper bolt (moderately no locktite)

Help with installing brake shoes on 1993 buick park ave

Your Buick has front disc brakes...and rear drum brakes...the usual concern is the front pads as they are used more...these are the easiest pads to you only need to remove the caliper from the rotor with 2 bolts to lift off...Be sure to push the piston all the way back into the caliper to install new pads...rotors are pop offs too...The rear drum is different...the brake shoes are held on with clips and springs...try keeping one of the shoe assemblies intact while you switch out the other sure to inspect the rear wheel brake cylinders for possible leaking...usually an oil build up inside the brake drum...these are inexpensive and should be switched out on a 93 Buick...:) Hope this helps.
