Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
You"ll needs a torx bit and medium breaker bar to remove the two bolts on the caliper...but first loosen the cap on the brake resivoir..after removing tire reinstall lug nuts snug on the rotors. Then slip in a long beefy screwdriver and work it in between the rotor and pads..it will take time..slowly pry back the caliper pistons all the way if you can...you'll need this room for the new pads, which i hope you"ll be replaceing along with the rotors...then brake loose the two bolts that hold the caliper in place and lift off, dont let the brake lines hang..it might get damged..... wire it to something or hang it on something that will relieve pressure/strain....take lug nuts back off rotor and slide it off...then install the new rotors put back on lug nuts and slide in brake pad in the cliper making sure that you install the anti rattle sprins correctly...(look at how the old ones are setup before installing the pad)!!!...remember push the pistons all the way in as far as they go ...it will make installing them at lot easier. Once the caliper is slide into place line up the two bolts fittings ( you should lube the bolts with some lithium grease first) then torque inplace. secure resevoir cap: ( having this loose, (not off) keeps you from loosing fliud when your pushing the pistons back into the caliper).anyway secure the cap back on...and now comes the most important part!...get in the car and dont be surprised when the pedal hits the floor..Dont drive this car until the brake pedal is pumped repeatedly till it feels normal or like before firm but not real hard!
next drive the car real slow at first...and check the brakes...they should work...if not check brake fliud levels and brake areas for leaks or cracked lines. pretty much thats it in a nut shell.. DRIVE slow first time to check brakes and pump them quite a bit till normal pressure builds up.
