Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre
Posted by Anonymous on
I have done mine several times. Depending on how handy you are we can get more specific. At a high level (jack up the rear, remove tire, etc) there are two bolts that hold the pad assy to the car. You have to loosen them and remove the assy. The emergency brake cable needs to be unclipped but do your best not to remove it or it is a bear to reattach. Once the assy is loose keep it in the air. A small box is helpful. The pads come out pretty easy. Keep track of which side the pads come out of. One side is the warning piece (metal tab). To retract the cylinder you have to turn it. I can't remember if clockwise or counter and if it is different on each side. Once the cylinder is retracted you can put the pads in. Make sure the retaining clips stay in place and the knobs on the back of the pad fit into the notches on the cylinder. After the pads are in slide the assy back over the disc. Put the bolts back in and tighten. Make sure the bolts go in tight. Look for locktight on them and make sure you clean the threads of if necessary and reapply locktite (that is another story). Push on the brake pedal to make sure the pads are set before driving.
If you need more help perhaps we can take this off line.
