The clip goes on the back side of the brake pad there are two holes that it hooks in and then it snaps over the bottom of the pad plate the part that sicks out just goes in the caliper piston

Grinding and rubbin when breaking, seems to be getting worse. Only happens when breaking.


Get your brake pads replaced. Sounds like the brake linings have worn down to nothing, and you are now metal to metal on your brakes.

look at your front brakes you have a brake caliber, on it you will see a piston that pushes your brake pads in when you apply your brakes sounds like your piston on brake caliber is sticking.they have rebuild kits at your local parts place hope this was useful.

2000 GMC Jimmy SLS 2dr 2wd A few problems have been reacurring over the years, first about 2 years ago I had a huge problem with the ruel pump, i had it replaced, worked for about 2 days, had it...


your foot pedal is a hydraulic brake and is used constantly. the brake pads are on the outside of the rotar and in constant motion in and out which wears the seal inside the caliper causing it to leak.as for the emergency brake, it is a mechanical brake inside whats like a small drum on the inside of the rotor (back rotors only) the mechanical parts inside the drum will seize up because they are never used and are exposed to the elements everytime you drive. if you have the emergeny brake serviced and fixed and want to keep it in good working order you would need to start using it more often. as for the fuel presure loss could be another bad fuel pump or a restriction in the lines somewhere. maybe a malfunction fuel presure regulator. hard to say without looking at it

Cant get brakes back on my 1992 gmc jimmy I cant get them to line up and go on the rotor


More than likely you have not fully compressed the caliper piston into the caliper. Take the old inner brake pad and clip it on back onto the piston. With a large clamp (one side on the back of the caliper behind the piston and the other on the face of the old brake pad) and compress the piton slowly by tightening the clamp. It needs to bottom out completely. Remove the clamp and old brake pad and install the new pads. Make sure that when you install the caliper to the rotor that the brake pads stay locked in position and it will slide over the rotors and fit snug.

My 2001 gmc Jimmy is making a metal on metal grinding sound in the front left wheel area when I touch the brakes. Do u think it's brake pads or worse? And how hard is it to fix?


If the sound is barely noticable its the squeekers letting you know you need new brakes in a few more hundred miles or so.When you let your foot off the brake the sound disappears quickly doesn't it? If so its time for new pads

Wheels Makes Noise...


You need to have your brake pads replaced. They make that sound when they get worn down so you know to change them. There is a little piece of metal that rubs on the brake rotor to tell you this. Hope this helps

How do I remove the rear axle to replace the seal 1996 jimmy


You will have to remove the differential cover on the rear end, in the center of the gear cluster you'll have to rotate your axle until it exposes the ends of the axle shafts, push in the axles as far as you can from the brake pad assembly area, then, there this a C clips that slips into a groove on the end of the axle, you'll have to reove the C clip to pull out the axle.
