Question about 1997 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

I have a 97 STS. I just changed the rear brakes -

I have a 97 STS. I just changed the rear brakes - rotors and pads. During the change, we had the parking brake on (while changing the fronts) and needed to release it to work on the rears. We had already started on the rears when we thought of this. The brake is automatically released when the car is put in gear, so I had to turn the ignition to acc and move the gear selector. When I did this, I think the car's check of the brake system progressed (heard a buzzing noise from there), and sice we were taking them apart, it tripped the ABS/Stability control light. Now it won't go off, but brakes work great. Can I clear this problem? I don't think we damaged anything during the change. The stability reduced warning shows up in the information center, the ABS light is always on, and the car starts in 2nd gear. I held down the climate control ''off'' button with the passenger ''warmer'' button to look at the codes. I show a current code of TCS C1235, and three others that show up as History - TCS C1234, TCS C1255, and TCS C1285.

Thanks for any help.

The stability system is the one that controls the body of the car and how it behaves in relation to the road - it uses the brakes and the shocks for that.
If you have hit something so hard the rims were damaged then surely something else in the braking and the suspension was also damaged. Most likely it's one of the air shocks or their position sensor the one that have been damaged - you need to lift the front of the car and thoroughly inspect the front suspension.

Is it best to replace the rear brake assembly -pads,rotors,calipers all at the sane time ?


Normally, unless the caliper is not functioning or leaking brake fluid you don't have to replace it.
Replace the rotors and pads only.

Does the 2003 gmc yukon have rear rotors? and do the brakes need to be changed if the rotors need to be machined?


Yes, it has rear Disc Brakes, I would suggest to change the rear pads since they have to remove the rear Brake Calipers to remove the rotors and it wouldn't take much more time or labor to replace the pads at that point. That way when your rear rotors are re-installed and your new brake pads are installed your rear brakes should give you longer service life and better stopping power.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

How do I change my rear brakes on my 2000 Cadillac Seville STS?


you will need to remove the parking brake cable from the caliper then remove the lower slide pin bolt, flip the caliper up and pull out the old pads and install the new ones. You should get the rotors machined for the best braking performance or replace them.

Rear brakes


I changed the rear pads this fall, have you removed the caliper retaining bolts and the Park Brake Cable? I remember the cable being a pain and using a large hammer and pry bar to loosen the caliper. You can pry on the edge of the pad and the hat section of the rotor. The rear rotors aren't expensive and should be done at the same time.

HOW TO CHANGE THE REAR BRAKE FOR BENZ ML320 2001?


The rear brakes are very easy to change. There is nothing to worry about due to it being a 4-wheel vehicle and you only need to change the rotors if they are at minimum specs(printed on the rotor itself). If you don't have a micrometer to check the rotor thickness, then look at the edge of the rotor for a lip. A tall lip on the edge indicates it is best to change the rotors. Also, if the mileage is over 60k miles or you live in a cold climate(where there is a lot of sand/salt on the roads), it's a good idea to double check your parking brakes. But be careful when removing the rotors, they can hang up on the parking brake pad and potentially pull the pad loose. If the rotors are frozen on, use a lubricant like wd-40 on the center of the rotor and let it soak in, then tap around the outside edge of the rotor/hub area with a hammer to break it free.
