Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10

3 Answers

I have a 2000 Chevy S10 ZR2 i just replaced the back brakes on it they are disk brakes. The one side i replaced the rotor and the other side i replaced the rotor and caliper. The side i replaced the rotor and caliper the squeaks randomly, but if i tap on the brakes while its squeaking it quits. The squeak isnt like a constant squeak like its rubbing all the way around the rotor on at a certain spot. i switched rotors from one side to another that same side still did the same thing. not sure what it could be. Any suggestions?

The pads are probably chattering against the inside of the caliper. there was a metal shim that goes between the back of the pad and the inside of the caliper that should be reinstalled. if not available there is a product called disc quiet that can be placed on the back of the pads. make sure you check for grease or oil contamination on pad contact surface.

The squeaking may be coming from the brake pad vibrating. Try applying a brake silencer to the back of the brake pad. It may come in the form of a thin metal shim, to a teflon like material. Also, double check to make sure that the brake caliper has no air trapped in it.

    If all else fail, you may have to try a different type or brand of brake pad.

  • JThruster Apr 26, 2010

    Your welcome, most likely the cause is from the pad vibration. However, for future situations, it is possible to have some air localized in the caliper without it effecting the other side. If the caliper was not filled or completely filled with fluid it could trap a pocket of air. Good luck.

Hello Yooperboogs!

Not to say these two solutions by Williams or by thruster are just simply wrong, however, this insight might save you from "Thinking" it is a sticking caliber of which I noted was not at all discussed about all the 00' Chevy S10 I used to service as an ASE Certified Brake Specialists.

ALL braking calipers of the S10 Models and most any other trucks in that matter contain a track system of which the actual brake pad S L I D E S when the brake pedal is depressed and then the brake pads S L I D E S back via the flat tracking system built into the rear knuckle, this allows for the caliper to move freely if properly cleaned & lubricated of road grime & dirt as well as simple rust.

If this tracking system is not properly cleaned & lubricated so as to allow the caliper to travel freely, the brake caliper will appear to have a stuck piston, this certainly could be the cause but really is not at all! (smiles here)

The old timers and ASE brake specialists such as I use to be will fill ya in further if need be at any accredited location with the ASE Seal of excellence!

How to replace front brake pads on a How to replace front brake pads on a 2000 Chevy S10 4WD pickup?


First you want to remove brake fluid from brake resovoir, raise front wheels off ground and set park brake or block rear wheels. Remove front wheels, keep steering wheel unlocked so you can turn rotors side to side. Loosen bolts that hold caliper end gently pry caliper free from rotor, remove caliper and remove pads, use bungy cord to hang caliper away from rotor, have rotors measured to see if they are thick enough to have machined, replace if out of specs. Match up pads with old ones, use anti- squeak red liquid and put layer on back of pads, let dry. Use tool to put pistons back into calipers, slowly put pistons back into bore while opening up bleeder screw so ABS won't be damaged. After rotors resurfaced, wash with rubbing alchohal to remove any oils from hands, install rotors and reverse putting pads back onto caliper and reinstall, torque caliper bolts to factory specs and tighten bleeder screws. Install wheels, torque lug nuts to factory specs and replace brake fluid in resovoir. Lower car carefully to ground and press brake peddle without pumping it. Any air in system should bleed out, if not get someone to help with bleeding system. Road test to ensure no squeaks or pulling, burn brakes in slowly.

Fix chevy 2000 S10 parking brake. Foot pedal and lines and linkages are all fine. Calipers are fine and the linkages to a separate parking brake at rear wheels are fine and working well. I removed left...


Some times the rotors are hard to remove.(rust) Just soak it with wd40 and use a big hammer or prybar. Try smacking it around the studs, But don't hit them. If you smack the part of the rotor that the regular service brake rides on you will warp the rotor. Just keep trying, you'll get it. Also if you mess up the rotor they really aren't that expensive to replace. Plus your old one is likely wore out anyways.
