Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre

3 Answers

I'm working on a 2003 Buick Lesabre's rear brakes. It appears the bottom of the caliper is fastened with a 12mm bolt -- the top of the caliper doesn't seem to have a head to put a socket on or a torx head. I will be needing to put on new pads AND have the rotors ground, so the rotors will need to come off. The front brakes appear to be more normal with a larger pair of metric bolts holding the caliper on -- BUT the backs look forein to me.

The top of the caliper has a stud. Once you remove the lower caliper bolt, pull the spring-loaded upper portion of the caliper towards the inside of the car. It will come out and you have to pull the caliper off the stud. There is no upper mounting bolt. Hope this helps out.

Remove the 12mm bolt & swing the caliper out of the way on the other bolt.

Why rearend leaks by both wheel areas 2003 lesabre?


this is a front wheel drive car there fore there is no rear end like a rear wheel drive. the fluid leak at the wheels is probably brake wheel cylinder/caliper or brake flex hose. check brake fluid level if its down then check for brake fluid leak if not then you will have to check the rear area for some other fluid leak.

The top bolt that holds the caliper on looks to need a special tool the bottom is just a socket what takes off the top bolt on the rear?


Hi the top is not a bolt its a pin
to remove the caliper remove the lower bolt then lift the caliper up till it clears the brake pads and slide the caliper off the pin
when you reinstall lube the top pin and the bottom slide pin
TAKE CARE WHEN REMOVING THE LOWER BOLT THEY BREAK EASY
