Silly, you don't need a diagram, just use a 8 inch c-clamp with the hook on the back of the caliper and the adjustable screw in pad on the outside of the outer pad itself and screw the c-clamp in till it stops to squeeze the caliper piston all the way back in to it's casting to give you the room to put it back on the same way you took it off. To remove it, jack the tire off the ground and remove it. Use the c-clamp to squeeze the piston back in, remove the to caliper slide blots from the back that the caliper slides on, pull the old pads out and put in the new ones, being sure they are turned the same as what you removed, then put the caliper back on, placing the slide bolts back in and tighten them tight, then put your tire back on. Pump the brake pedal till it up and hard again, then do the other side the same way. No problem. Happy to be of service my friend.

You need to compress the calipar, sounds like a groove in the rotor, a big screw driver works

jack up frt end. remove wheels. take note of how the brakes go together. do 1 side at a time so you can use the other side as a referance. remove caliper bolts. use a c-clamp to push in caliper pistons. remove old pads. than remove caliper bracket and rotors.dont be afraid its not a big deal. make sure to check brake fluid level and pump the pedal when the job is completed.

Need to replace front left pads is there a video


Probably not a video, but brakes are to be performed in Axle sets. If the LF is worn more than the RF, something is wrong, like frozen caliper.

JUST INSTALLED BRAKE PADS IN THE REAR AND THEY ARE NOT RELEASING SMOKING REAL BAD


On most rear disc brakes, the calipar pistons have to be turned in with a special tool.
They should be turned in just enough to get the new pads on without using force, that might be the problem.

Brakes are burning up


Check the rubber brake hoses. Many times they internally fail and prevent calipers from releasing.

Rear drivers side brake bleeder niple is froze - need to replace calipar - is this difficult? I have completed other repairs on brakes and replaced calipars before just not on a blazer


This is just like any other vehicle to change out the caliper. Almost all brakes are the same when it comes down to it. The only difference is the way certain companies either install them or the way they work. But on the Blazer it is really simple and can be done by just taking your time and doing it like you have done before
