Try an open-ended wrench (on my 2001 Yukon XL on the rear, it was a 5/8") that is just inside the bolt head (bolt retainer) on the caliper -both top and bottom bolt. If you have that same config, the bolt retainer is just spinning when you are turning the bolt head. The wrench will allow you to put leverage on the retainer, and the bolt will come out quickly, as it is a short bolt.

How do i change out the battery on my 2007 denali. what is keeping it locked into position

there is usually a small bolt that holds it in place with a rubber block the rubs along the bottom of the battery. Take a flash light and look for the small bolt at the base of the battery,,You need like a 1/4" drive socket with a 6-9" extention on the socket to reach it..Just unscrew the bolt and the bolt and the block will come loose,you just lift it up and out of the way. Remove old battery and reinstall new one in reverse order.

Hi, I have a 2002 Yucon Xl and the parking brake pad needs to be replaced. Is the two callaper pins the only thing holding the brake assembly on the disc brake. If so do they come completely out of the...

Yes thats all that holds the caliper on and you can pull them all the way out, but if the bracket that holds the caliper wraps around the front then you will have to remove it also. two bolts.

On 2001 gmc yukon rear disc brakes after u loosn the bolts on the caliper do they come all the way out and do u have to remove the bracket that holds the caliper on

It should pull off, you may have to get a big "C" clamp and push the caliper piston back, or sometimes you can pry the piston back with a bar or screwdriver, be careful what you pry on.

2004 Yukon XL Denali fuel gauge fluctuations

Your sending unit for the guage is part of your fuel pump in the tank. But first try your fuel pump relay, may be working intermittenly when you hit a bump or something. Or possibly a loose wire somewhere along the way. Much less expensive (worth a look).

I cant get the rear brake caliper off of my 2001 yukon . The bolts holding it on just turn without moving in or out . How do I change the brakes ?

If you will look at the inner part of the caliper that the bolts go into they have a flat side for a wrench to go on. Put a wrench on these flat spots and then remove the bolts. Good Luck
