1993–96 Vehicles

  1. Remove about 2⁄3 of the brake fluid from the reservoir with a clean syringe or baster type utensil.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Matchmark the relationship of the wheel to the axle flange. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Reinstall two lug nuts to retain the rotor.
  5. Unfasten the bolt and washer attaching the cable support bracket to the caliper body assembly. It is not necessary to disconnect the parking brake cable from the caliper parking brake lever or disconnect the brake hose unless the caliper is to be completely removed from the vehicle. Freeing the cable support bracket allows enough flexibility in the cable to pivot the caliper up and down and remove the shoe and lining.
  6. Remove the sleeve bolt.
  7. Pivot the caliper body assembly up. Do not completely remove the caliper assembly body.
  8. Remove the outboard and inboard shoe and linings (pads) from the caliper support.
  9. Remove the two pad clips from the caliper support. To install:
  10. Bottom the piston assembly into the caliper bore. Use a suitable spanner-type tool in the piston slot to turn the piston assembly and thread it into the caliper body assembly.
  11. After bottoming the piston, lift the inner edge of the boot next to the piston assembly and press out any trapped air. The boot must lie flat. Make sure the slots in the end of the piston are positioned correctly before pivoting the caliper body assembly down over the shoe and lining in the caliper support. Use a suitable spanner-type tool in the piston slots to turn the piston as necessary. NOTE: Whenever installing new pads, install new pad clips. These should be provided in the disc pad kit.
  12. Install the two pad clips in the caliper support.
  13. Install the outboard and inboard shoe and lining in the caliper support. The wear sensor is on the outboard pad. The sensor is positioned downward at the leading edge of the rotor during forward wheel rotation. Hold the metal shoe edge against the spring end of the clips in the caliper support. Push the shoe in toward the hub, bending the spring ends slightly, and engage the shoe notches with the support abutments.
  14. Pivot the caliper body assembly down over the shoe and lining assembly. Be careful not to damage the piston boot on the inboard. Compress the sleeve boot by hand as the caliper body moves into position to prevent boot damage.
  15. After the caliper body 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.
  16. Install the sleeve bolt and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  17. Install the cable support bracket (with the cable attached) with the bolt and washer. Tighten the bolt to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  18. Remove the two lug nuts retaining the rotor.
  19. Install the wheel and tire assembly, aligning the marks made during removal.
  20. Carefully lower the vehicle, then firmly depress the brake pedal 3 times to seat the pads against the rotors.

Can you change the back brakes on a 94 cutlass supreme without using the spanner type tool and by just removing some bolts


Most likely not. I have used two people and a pair of long needle nose pliers. Most car parts stores will loan you tools as well.

Where are the brake fluid resevoirs on the 94 olds cutlass supreme


I take it you have the 3.4 L (204 cu in) LQ1 V6 engine.


I've seen it before. If that's the one ' remember seeing it on the peripheral of the engine compartment at the rear, I think. Dirty compartments don't always show a reservoir, but look for the telltale rubber lid or a metal one with a thick wire clamp.

Added brake fluid when pedal went to floor,reservoir almost dry,good brakes after that pumped them up, now maybe 1 month later lent same car to friend ,said brake pedal sank to floor & red brake light...


There is diffinatly a leak in the break system and it is most likely one if not both of your rear wheel cylinders. Need to have it checked out before it gets worse and you end up in a wreck due to no brakes.
