What bolts do I remove to drop caliper on a 1999 cutless olds


You need to remove the bolts at the top and bottom of the calipers. They normally require an allen wrench to remove. Hope this helps. In addition, you will need to compress the brake shoe to pull the caliper from the rotor. You can use a c clamp to push the cyl. back into the caliper.

99 chevy lumina rear disc brakes. I thought a caliper bolt was broken. I went to the other side, it looks the same. so one is a bolt, what is the other thing? How does it come off?


you will remove the one bolt that holds the caliper to the bracket. Once that bolt is removed you can rotate the caliper away from the rotor and then slide it off the other caliper slide. Sometimes you will have to rotate it, remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts and then remove the caliper assembly due to the lack of clearance.

How do i remove rear brake caliper on a 2002


Nothing. On the front disk there are only two bolts that hold the caliper in place. Once they are all the way out it is just a matter of wiggling and pressure to remove the caliper. The rear calipers are also held on with 2 bolts but because of the way the brake line attaches you also have to remove that to remove the caliper.

How do I remove the front brakes? Is there a special tool?


prev.gif next.gif Some GM Vehicles use aT-30 Torx bit, other use a regular hex head bolt with a ratchet tor remove the caliper. The following shows how to remove the caliper from the line. Brake Caliper Removal & Installation Front To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle.
  4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Hand tighten 2 wheel lug nuts to retain the rotor to the hub.
  6. Install a large C-clamp over the brake caliper with the ends of the clamp against the rear of the caliper body and the outer brake pad.
  7. Tighten the C-clamp until the caliper piston is compressed into the bore enough to allow the piston to slide past the rotor and remove the C-clamp.
  8. Disconnect the brake line from the caliper and discard the two copper gaskets.
  9. Plug the brake line and the opening in the brake caliper. NOTE: On second design hardware, the upper caliper pin bolt has a bushing as part of the bolt. The lower caliper pin bolt is of a solid design.
  10. Remove the caliper pin bolts and the caliper from the bracket.
To Install:
  1. Replace any damaged caliper pin boots.
  2. If reusing the brake caliper pin bolts, wipe the old grease from the brake caliper pin bolts.
  3. On first design hardware apply high temperature silicone brake lubricant to the brake caliper pin bolts. On second design hardware, apply a thin coat of NIGLUBE® or equivalent grease to the brake caliper pin bolts. In either case it is not necessary to apply lubricant to the threads of the pin bolts.
  4. Install the brake caliper over the brake pads into the brake caliper bracket. NOTE: On second design hardware, the upper caliper pin bolt has a bushing as part of the bolt. The lower caliper pin bolt is of a solid design.
  5. Install the caliper pin bolts and torque to 38 ft-lbs (51 Nm) (1996 - 1999), 63 ft-lbs (85 Nm) (2000 – 2005).
  6. Install the brake hose bolt with new copper brake hose gaskets to the brake hose and to the brake caliper, torque to 33 ft-lbs (45 Nm) (1996 – 2001) 32 ft-lbs (43 Nm) (2002 – 2005).
  7. Bleed the brake system.
  8. With the engine OFF, gradually apply the brake pedal to approximately 2/3 of its travel distance and slowly release the pedal. Wait 15 seconds and do it again until a firm brake pedal is obtained.
  9. Remove the 2 wheel lug nuts to retain the rotor to the hub.
  10. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
  11. Lower the vehicle.

Replace rear brake pads


Rear disc brake pads offer better performance and are not as affected by moisture like conventional brake shoe style brakes are. Rear disc brakes are similar to front disc brakes. The main difference is that rear disc brake systems must incorporate the emergency brake system. There are two methods widely used for the emergency brake with rear disc systems. The first system is a brake shoe inside the brake disc that is actuated by the emergency brake lever. The second is a screw style actuator inside the brake caliper. When activated the brake pads are forced into the brake disc and held tightly by the emergency brake lever.
READ COMPLETELY BEFORE STARTING
Step 1 - Identify Rear Disc Brake Components
rear_brake_pads.jpg Rear disc brake assembly includes; rear brake disc, rear brake pads, brake caliper mount and a caliper mounting screw. (Note: Some vehicles do not have the rotor mounting screw.)
Step 2 - Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_2.jpg To replace rear brake pads and rotors the rear brake caliper needs to be removed. First loosen the rear brake caliper mount bolts and remove them. Turn counter clockwise.
Step 3 - Lift Rear Brake Caliper from The Caliper Mount
rear_brake_pads_3.jpg After the caliper mount bolts have been removed, gently lift the brake caliper from the caliper mount. Inspect the caliper slides; they should move freely in the caliper mount. Remove rear brake pads and hardware.

Step 4 - Removing Caliper Mount Bolts
rear_brake_pads_4.jpg With a socket wrench or other appropriate removal tool, loosen the rear brake caliper mounting bolts. Remove bolts and lift the caliper mount and remove it from the vehicle. Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole. Tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub holding on tightly, using both hands. You do not want to drop the rotor.

Step 5 - Removing Rear Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor.jpg Remove the retaining screw from the disc mounting hole, tap the rotor gently to release any rust that has accumulated between the rotor and bearing hub. Lift brake rotor from wheel hub, hold on using both hands and do not drop.

Step 6 - Install New Brake Rotor
rear_brake_rotor_2.jpg Check the new rotor against the old brake rotor to make sure they are the same size. Clean the mating surface on the wheel hub before the new brake rotor is installed. Reinstall rotor retainer screw.
Step 7 - Reset Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brakes_7.jpg Before new brake pads can be installed, the rear brake caliper must be reset. The reset tool winds the piston back into position so the new brake pads will fit. This style of brake caliper will not compress with a clamp tool; it can only be reset with the proper reset tool.
Step 8 - Reinstall Rear Caliper Mount and Install New Rear Brake Pads
rear_brake_rotor_3.jpg After the caliper has been reset, reinstall caliper mounting bolts and make sure the bolts are tight. Then match up the old brake pads to the new brake pads. They should be exactly the same except, of course; the old ones will be worn out. Check the new brake pads for proper fit and install any brake hardware that is required.
Step 9 - Remount Rear Brake Caliper
rear_brake_rotor_4.jpg Reinstall the brake caliper, align brake pad hardware and reinstall caliper mounting bolts. (Note: align the rear peg of the brake pad to the groove in the caliper piston.) Recheck and retighten all caliper and caliper mount bolts. Bleed brake system to relieve any air in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly. This operation forces the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors. DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE until proper brake pedal operation resumes. When test driving vehicle listen for any unusual noises during the operation of the brakes.
WARNING! Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components. Never move a car without proper brake pedal operation.

How do I remove the rear break calipers from my 1970 xj6 series 1


if the calipers are like my 85 xj6 - it is a pain -
take of the plate covering the shock absorbers.
at the top of the caliper is the e-brake caliper - there are 2 tabs holding the bolts. bend the tabs back - remove the bolts, springs, and e brake caliper.
remove brake line going to caliper.
2 big bolts hold the main caliper - they are wired together with safety wire. cut the wire and remove the bolts.
the caliper should come out -
be patient. very difficult job.
