Your local dealership has it!

number 6

and you'll need new washers for each side of the hose since they're a one-time use crush style

number 7

print that out if your local dealership parts counterperson can't use a parts diagram to spot that little bolt

Go to a auto wrecking yard to get one. unless you damaged the original banjo bolt you don`t need to replace them. the only other place to get one is from the dealer.

The front right caliper on a 2004 grand am is leaking at the banjo bolt. I got a brand new caliper to replace the old one. It came with three washers.It's the first time I've seen washers ona caliper

When you replace the main flex brake line there is a washer that goes on both sides of the hole the bolt goes through. The third washer was probably an accident. Not sure, but usually there are only 2.

Removal & Installation

NOTE Using a brake pedal holding tool, depress the brake pedal past its first inch of travel and hold it in this position. This will isolate the master cylinder from the hydraulic brake system and will not allow brake fluid to drain out of the reservoir while the brake lines are open.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable Rear wheels Banjo bolt retaining the brake hose to the caliper. Be sure to plug the end of the brake hose or cover it with a plastic bag to prevent contamination from entering the hydraulic system. Caliper guide pin bolts Caliper assembly from the brake adapter by rotating the bottom of the caliper away from the rotor, then lift the caliper with the pads away from the adapter abutment Brake pads by pushing (outboard) or pulling (inboard) from the caliper fingers and piston

    Fig. Brake hose banjo fitting (1), caliper guide pin bolt (2), caliper adapter (3), caliper (4), copper seal washers (5) and banjo bolt (6)

To install:
  1. Completely compress the caliper piston
  2. Install or connect the following:
    NOTE The outboard pads are side oriented, make sure the spring clip is installed so it is positioned downwards when the caliper is installed.

    Inboard pad clip against the piston cavity and press the pad until the clip is seated making sure the pad backing plate is flush against the piston

    Outboard pad making sure the locating pins are positioned against the ramps. Slide the pad onto the caliper and ensure the locating pins are squarely seated into the holes on the caliper and the pad is flush against the caliper fingers.
  3. Make sure the abutment shims are in place on both slide abutments.
  4. Retract the caliper guide pins to clear the caliper adapter bosses.

    Brake caliper. Staring with the upper end, position the caliper and shoes over the rotor and align the outboard pad upper edge with the caliper slide abutment. Rotate the lower end of the caliper into position Caliper guide pin bolts and tighten to 200 inch lbs. (23 Nm) Banjo bolt with new washers on each side of the hose fitting and tighten to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) Wheels Negative battery cable

Dlpehow to replace rear rotors on a 2001 dodge 3500 diesel

Don't do it before you have to - but if you've got to here you go . . .
HINT: You have to pull both rear axles so make sure you've got plenty of side clearance and clean area to lay the interior axle parts on - to keep from contaminating upon rebuild. An impact wrench is needed as well as a large spindle socket. Measure the spindle nut then go purchase your socket. I don't think you can do this job w/o it as you will mess up your parts if you beat it off.

1. Raise and support the vehicle
2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly
3. Remove the disc brake caliper
3.1 Remove top of Master Cylinder and keep open
3.2 Compress the disc brake caliper w/C clamp & wood block
3.3 Remove the caliper pin bolts
3.4 Remove the banjo bolts (replace the copper washer upon reinstallation)
3.5 Use coat hanger to support caliper assy out of way
4. Remove spindle nut
5. Remove axle shaft out of axle housing (if dually) - pull it straight out. Be careful not to ding the interior spline on the way out.
6. Remove hub and rotor assembly

[Note: It's a good time to replace parking brake pads too. You're right there.]

Is the reversal of dis-assembly and removal. Make sure you use new copper washers for your banjo bolts upon reassembly). Good luck.

Brake hang up

this is due to them sticking on the pins of the caliper. this is a frequent problem with an eassy fix. first thing is jack up the vehicle and place jack stand under the engine carriage where it bolts to the uni-body(never work on a suspended vehicle without jack stands). remove the wheel and set aside. then the are (2) bolts that hold the caliper to the support bracket these will be 14 or 15mm heads they will also have rubber grommets on both sides of the caliper.(do not remove the caliper from the rotor)remove the bolts and clean them thoroughly then use antiseize lubricant on the on the sleeve inserts and replacethem in the caliper use anti seize on the bolts but noton the threads retighten the bolts replace the tire and remove the jackstand lower the vehicle. this will do the trick... please rate thanks

I replaced the brake pads on a 2003 monte carlo ls and i dint notice that there is two tipe of bolts holding the caliper one with a plastic on it and the other whit out itmy question is which one goes on...

shouldn't be any plastic on either of them. The caliper bolts will need to be lubricated very well with some heavy grease before reassembly to prevent caliper sticking.

Please help!!!

You should have a crush washer on each side of the banjo bolt. You may be loosing your pressure to everything else by all the brake fluid leaking. You may have to go through the motions a few times before you see the fluid come out of the rear.
