  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Matchmark the relationship of the wheel to the axle flange. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Reinstall two lug nuts to retain the rotor.
  4. If the caliper is being removed from the vehicle for replacement or overhaul, perform the following:
    • Disconnect the brake hose from the caliper. Plug the opening in the caliper and the brake hose to prevent fluid loss and system contamination.
    • Detach the parking brake cable by lifting up on one end of the cable spring clip to free the end of the cable from the lever.
  5. Remove the bolt and washer attaching the cable support brake to the caliper body assembly.
  6. Remove the sleeve bolt, then remove the caliper body assembly. Pivot the caliper body up to clear the rotor and then slide it inboard off the pin sleeve.
  7. If the caliper is being removed for shoe and lining replacement or to provide access to the support bracket, rotor of wheel brake components, hang the caliper from suspension using a suitable wire hook so as not to stretch or damage the brake hose or brake cable.
  8. Inspect the pin boot, bolt boot and sleeve for cuts, tears or deterioration. If damaged, replace the boots.
To Install:
  1. Install the caliper assembly, as follows:
    • If not replaced, remove the pin boot from the caliper body assembly and install the small end over the pint sleeve (installed on the caliper support) until the boot seats in the pin groove. This is to prevent cutting the pin boot when the sliding body assembly onto the pin sleeve.
    • Hold the caliper body assembly in position it was removed and start over the end of the pin sleeve. As the caliper body assembly approaches the pin boot, work the large end of the pin boot in the caliper body groove. Then push the caliper body fully onto the pin.
    • Pivot the caliper body assembly down, using care not to damage the piston boot on the inboard shoe. Compress the sleeve boot by hand as the caliper body move into position to prevent boot damage.
    • After the caliper body assembly is in position, recheck the installation of the pad clips. If necessary, use a small prytool to re-seat or center the pad clips on the support abutments.
  2. Install the sleeve bolt and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Fasten the cable support bracket (with the cable attached) with the retaining bolts and washer. Tighten to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  4. If disconnected, attach the end of the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever by lifting up on the end of the cable spring clip and work the end of the parking brake cable into the notch in the lever.
  5. Unplug and attach the brake hose, if it was disconnected.
  6. Remove the two lug nuts retaining the rotor.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly, aligning the marks made during removal.
  8. Carefully lower the vehicle, then bleed the brake system if the brake hose was disconnected.
  9. Firmly depress the brake pedal 3 times to seat the pads against the rotors.

How to compress rear caliper on 94 olds cutlass supreme


When I do this work, I use a large C clamp to compress the caliper.

This may work for you. If yo don't want to spend the $ for a clamp like mine, you might get a general purpose bar clamp available at Home Centers, to work for you.

Good luck with your project.

They may screw in instead of compress, if they do you need a special tool that you can buy at a parts store for $10 to $20 bucks.
