Pads and rotors are easy. You will have to take the tire off. There will be two bolts on the back side of the calipers. You will need a large allen wrench to remove them. Once you get the calipers loose, you can swap out the pads. The rotors will slid off the axle itself without having to take anything else loose. When you put the calipers back in place, tighten the bolts you removed. After you get everything put back together, make sure you pump your brakes till they get tight BEFORE and AFTER you start your vehicle. You need to test your brakes out before you drive off. The bolts are self tightening.

2001 chevy lumina make rumbling noise when I press on the brake and the brakes are stiffening up from time to time causing me to have to press harder and they and make me feel that they may not stop t

New pads needed most likely...sounds like your metal to metal and need new rotors also...look inside your rim and look at metal it smooth/shiney or rough and dull....should b smooth on both sides

Question 1: How do i remove the rear rotor on my 1990 chevy Lumina Euro 3.1? I can't just pull it off. Is it just stuck or do i need to remove some kind of nut keeping it on? If so, where is it located?...

disc brakes work on a clamping principle as you said, on the rear of the lumina the caliper sliders tend to seize causing only the piston side to actuate, you will have to replace these pins and bushings as well, have fun

I have a 1991 chevy lumina( euro) I installed rotors and front brake pads on it and sometimes the front end shimmies and shakes when I apply the brakes. I do have another question. But I 'am really hoping...

Warped rotors will always shake when on the brakes. You say sometimes, so I would look into tires out of round or out of balance. Also, take a good look for any loose front end parts or excessive play.

Brake squeal

You, Probably will, Brake Squeal is NOT a new problem.
Disc brake's have been Squealing since, They, became
factory installed on chevrolet in 1971. Before, that they,
were a option. In 72 they even had a bulleton how, to
FIX it. And, no it didn't work.
With That said, Any time you replace Brake pads you,
should always re-surface the Rotors.
Why? First you may start to notice a pulsation as the
pads ware (sometimes! ) The best way to avoid, brake
squeal is to manchine the Rotors put, the blue membrain
sealent on the back side of the pads. And hope that works!!
Some brakes Pads squeal JUST SQUEAL??
You, Could do the same Brake job the same as you did
this one and, they may NOT Squeal.WHY, I WISH I NEW. They
sell all types of STUFF to stop Brake noice DON'T waste your $$.

How to replace brake pad and rotor on 2000 dodge stratus

First, take off the tire. Use an air tool if you have it. Then loosen the bolts holding the caliper to the rotor. Then pull the caliper off the rotor and take the rotor off the hub. Simply put the new rotor on the hub. Then take off the old pads and pay attention to how they are on to make it easier to install the new ones. Next you need a C-clamp. You have to push the piston back down inside the caliper for it to fit on the rotor with the new pads. Put on the new pads and put it in place on the rotor. Tighten the bolts back on the caliper and you're almost done. I also like to put never seize on the rotor around where the tire touches it so it's easier to remove for the next time. Put the tire back on and tighten it up. That's all! Good luck!

How to change brake pads on 1996 roadmaster

Disc brakes I assume on the front of the car? If so.

1. take off front wheel.
2. remove 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on the rotor.
3. slide the caliper off the rotor and remove old brake pads.
4. take a C-clamp and put it so you can press the piston back in on the caliper so it is almost all the way in. (Caliper = The round shaft that is on the inside of the rotor that pushes out the pads causing the resistance).
5. Check the condition of the rotor. If it is smooth and doesn't have too much of a lip on the outside of the rotor(both inside and outside of rotor), then put the pads on the caliper and put it back together.
6. If rotor is rough or has grooves in it then take the two bolts out so you can remove the caliper bracket from the wheel assembly. Tap on the rotors till they loosen up an replace them.

Good can do it

I have a chevy lumina van and just got done replacing the caliper abd brakes on it and now when i drive it for a short period of time the drivers side smokes

You have put the brakes on wrong or you have a sticking caliper remove that side and squeeze the caliper by pushing the inner brake pad with the screw driver between thepad and rotor be sure to open the bleeder valve, if the piston won't move you need to replace it, or rebuid it.
