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

Will a 1996 chevy blazer LS 4wd differential fit into a 2000 chevy blazer LS rwd rear end ?

Measure the lenth of both rear ends. see iss all hardware will bolt up without fabrication. if its the same size it will work. But im afraid being a 4 wheel drive it will be geared lower then a regular pick up/ Drive shaft may work but if not it would have to be shortened or lenghthebed. alot of work. Brakes you could leave the non drum breaks on better stopping power. I honestly believe you would be better off just going to a scrap yard and find one very easy to remove and replave few hour job.

I have a 2000 blazer and my brakes quit working right so he changed the ABS unit and its still doing the same thing the brakes give out if i hold the brake for to long how can we fix this?

if it fades out not an abs problem pads and rotor may be glazed over [polished from riding brake] check pads and rotor if slippery polished over cut rotor/and replace pads ---if at low speed--almost stopping and getting an abs activation then one of the sensors is dirty or corroded and needs to be replaced low speed activation usually doesnt set off check engine light

Just changed rear disc pads and one caliper on 2001 Chevy rear brakes are not working at all...fluid is in lines as it comes out when!

the problem here is in order to bleed the brakes properly u need to have a special tool to open up the ABS high pressure pop-it valves, this special tool will be avail at the dealer or in a generic form at any well equiped front end shop, u just can't bleed the brakes without it, I see this same posted problem over and over, this information is correct, u will need a shop to bleed the brakes

1999 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4. Replacing rear pad's,& Bleeding Breaks

have one person in the blazer pumping the brake pedal and then hold to the floor, crack the bleeder then tighten, release pedal, repeat till all air is out one side at a time, if this does not work then your ABS unit is bad witch if u follow your lines from your master cylinder u will find a black box with a motor on it, or the master cylinder itself is bad, it also can cause u to have no pedal, replace the master cylinder first, most likely cheaper.
