Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
Im trying to do the rear brakes on this and never did it there abs brakes it may need every thing the inner pad is all gone the outer one is not to bad it may need everything help.i have no manual
I have never worked on one as I live in australia and I have not seen one here at all but I would imagine they are a similar setup to most modern vehicles.
Remove the wheel, the disc caliper should be in your view now so have a look at both ends of the caliper on the back to see if it has 2 bolts holding the caliper to the mounting plate, you may only need to remove 1 bolt and swing the caliper away from the rotor, if not just remove the 2 bolts and remove the whole caliper from the rotor.
To compress the caliper piston back into the caliper just use a "G" clamp and 1 of the worn out pad backing plates across the front of the piston and use the "G" clamp to compress the piston as you will not be able to get the caliper back over the rotor with the new pads in place.
You will have to replace the rotors if they have been damaged by the worn out brake pads.
Hope this helps you with your problem
