Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

I need a brake assembly diagram 2005 silverado I was trying to change the rotors on a 2005 silverado 1/2 ton I had a little trouble getting the brake caliper off as it was well rusted as it is a snow plow truck. I removed the caliper and the bracket which the caliper fits inside but when I got to the rotor I could not get it off.... in my past experience rotors have a tendency to stick so before I wacked it with a mallet and it came loose this did not work... I am wondering if there is something different I have to do for this style of brake

    I had the exact same issue with my 2004 full size van rear brakes. Not sure if you're working on fronts or rears, but I discovered the parking brake is on the inside of the rear rotors. The shoes (it's a drum) had grooved themselves into the metal and it just didn't come off. I ended up putting it back together, took it to the shop, and the nice guy there used a bigger hammer, so to speak. He may have heated it up with a torch also.

    If it's the front, there is a small bolt flush with the rotor that has a hex head than needs to come out.

Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: can not remove rear brake rotor on 2500hd caliper

If you have the parking brake system located in the center of the rotor, (the parking brake cable goes inside the "hub" area, and not to the caliper) you have the internal parking brake shoes. The problem is that the drum part gets a rust lip built up and it's very difficult to pull off the rotor because it hangs up. Usually forcing it off stresses some of the hardware inside, but there is not much of an option.

2005 silverado brakes sticking front only after driving little


I had the same problem and replaced both calipers with no change, I figured it was the master cylinder. When I pulled off the master cylinder I saw the vacume booster had about 2 cups of brake fluid in it which leaked from the front of the master cylinder. I replaced master cylinder and vacume booster and brakes work great now.

On my 97" Suburban do


It depends. For a regular 1/2 ton and most 3/4 tons no, just remove the caliper and the rotor comes off over the wheel bearing hub. 1 ton suburbans, require more work, you will require a large socket to remove the axle nut, and a slide hammer or 3 jaw puller big enough to pull off the rotor and wheel bearing as an assembly. The rotor on some 3/4 tons and all 1 tons bolt from behind thru the wheel bearing and need to be removed together. The wheel bearing has to be unbolted from the spindle, then the wheel studs have to be punched thru to remove the rotor. The splines on the wheel studs hold the rotor to the wheel bearing. 1 ton will say 3500 on the side, 2500 for 3/4 ton and 1500 for 1/2 tons.

Having trouble removing rear disc brake rotor fron


This vehical has drum styal park brake shoes on the inside of the brake rotor so make sure the park brake isn't set and you can turn the rotor. If you can't turn the rotor you will have to look into this first if the park brake is set or sticking you won't get the rotor off if thats ok try spray with penting oil helps a little. I use a 4 or 5 lb sluge hammer and hit the rotor kinds close to the wheel studs about 5 times then hit the outer edge from the back side also works on the outerside. Don't be afread to hit hard I never broke one.

2005 ford escape assembly diagram for the front axle


If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

Remove the front disc rotor


The rotor and hub assembly are held together by the studs,you must first remove the 4-wheel drive hub assembly,then the wheel bearing nuts,and pull the hub and rotor off as a unit. Next lay it(back down) on a piece of wood, using a drift punch drive the studs out. Turn it over ,lay it(face down) on a block of wood, line the new stud splines up with the grooves in the hub and drive them in with the punch and reassemble. A set of dentist style picks will be helpful with the clip in the 4wd hub and a 4 lug 4wd nut wrench will be needed.
