Question about 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
By the numbers...Break the lugs loose on the wheel. Jack up the one side and remove the lugs and wheel. Locate the 2 bolts that hold the rotor on. Remove one bolt and loosen the other. Rotate the caliper toward the loosened bolt. With a c clamp, slowly, compress the caliper. With the caliper fully compressed, remove the spring clips and the pads. Install the new pads, make sure you use a brake pad lubricant on the back side of each pad..(reduces the chance of brake chatter). Put the spring clips back on. Now rotate the caliper back onto the rotor. Put the bolt back in and re-tighten both. Now replace the wheel and spin the lugs up snug. Lower the car and torque the lugs. You are now ready to line the other side. Remember, before driving to pump the brakes a couple of times to bring the caliper back out...so your pedal doesn't go soft when you drive. Also if the rotor is scarred or warped, it will be necessary to have it "turned"...(machined on a brake laythe). Good Luck with your repair and I hope you find this very helpful!
