I assume you may have never done this before. Not on this veh. If you have, you already have the tools. how are you going to push the caliper pistons in to make room for the new thicker pads. What about cleaning of all the hub and pad slide rust. Lubing the right parts with the right lube. Rotors;new or have then turned. Work with us here We need to know you skills to be able to help.

Change rear break pads on 2000 Buick. Cannot compress break cylinder in order to install new pads using C clamp and bleeding off break fluid.

There's a special tool required to compress the rear caliper pistons. You may want to rent the tool. If you look at the piston you'll see one or two notches. The special tool has nipples to fit these notches. The caliper piston will have to be compressed with the tool and the notches will have to be placed in the o'clock and 6 o'clock for the brake pads to slide over the rotor. If you rent the special tool have the renter show you how to use it.

I need to change my rear break pads and also my emergency brake will not dissengage once put on. How do i fix both?

My hyundai had the emergency brake bracket (mounted to the back of the caliper) rust solid. I used rust eater to get it to slightly break loose. I eventually had to replace both calipers. It is a very consistant problem. My new ones need alot of attention now as well I covered them in caliper paint to help with the rusting. The pads are very simple replacement 2 bolts on the back of the caliper. Remove the pads then screw back in the piston with a import tool from any auto parts store put pads back in, put back on the caliper.
