Your mount bracket should not be removed. You unbolt the caliper from the mount (two bolts, one on each end of the caliper that go into a small rubber boot). Once you remove the caliper use a large "c" clamp to compress the piston so it will fit back on the rotor. Use the old brake pad over the piston so you do not damage it with the clamp. Make sure the bolts you removed (slide pins) move freely in the caliper and are lubed before re-assembly.

Different bolts are used for different GM model cars. A Torx or a regular hex socket is sometimes used on GM cars. 2 of them hold the bracket on to the hub assembly.

Be sure to support the caliper with a coat hanger or bungy cord so the flexible brake line is not damaged.

Also, it is a good idea to use a Torque wrench (1/2" or 3/8") to get the proper torque of these bolts back to specifications according to your repair manual.

Rear brakes sticking replaced rubber hose and are still sticking


Sounds like your disc brake calipers are seizing up due to moisture in your brake fluid. If your pistons in the calipers are made of steel, you can either over-haul them, or replace them with a non-metallic piston to prevent this from happening.

There is only one thought or answer.

Since 1980, whenever you get a check light on, you go to a repair shop. They check the codes, that set the light,and use that as a starting point, to diagnose and repair your issues.

I just had the brakes redone on our 1998 olds 88 new pads new rotors and when we got it back the abs light and the traction off light stay on but not all the time and just this morning the brakes went out...


Take it back! The ABS lights, etc could just be they forgot to connect one of the wheel speed sensors, but the brakes going out completely means they screwed something up. If they are not working, have it towed back and repaired correctly!
