Front brake pads 99 Regal

I changed the all the pads and rotors on my 2003 Impala and now need to change the front brake pads on my 1999 Regal. Is there much of a difference or pretty straight forward? Thanks!

Its very similar if not the same. That style Impala uses the same brake and axle assembly as the Regal so you should be in familiar territory once the wheels are off. Good luck!

Whining noise from front of 2003 impala.higher


Sounds like it could be the wheel bearing. Jack up the car, and see if the tire feels loose when pushing in and out at the top and bottom of the tire. That;s the most obvious way to check. But many times, the bearing is tight, but still bad.

Apparently the whine is car speed related and not engine speed. I'm surprised that you didn't say anything about checking the wheel bearings?

How do i change front brake pad on this car merecy sable 1989 -99


Remove the wheel, remove the 2 bolts holding on the caliper to the caliper carrier. You will need a large C-Clamp or a cailper piston tool. Place an old brake pad against the piston in the caliper and use the C-Clamp to push the brake pad against the piston to collapses the piston into the caliper. Also open the master cylinder cap and place a towel around the area to catch any brake fluid that would come out of the master cylinder as you collapes the piston, this is normal, but doesn't always happen, depending on the level of fluid in the master cylinder. Install the new pads and reinstall the caliper and wheel. Make sure you pump the brake pedal a few times before you take off, to get the pads against the rotor.

In 2004 Impala, do I have rotor or drums?


The best way to answer you question is to tell you to take the vehicle to your nearest dealer and inquire with the parts dept. I can tell you that on the ffront of your car you have rotors and the brake used on the front is called a pad. Also your vehicle does not have a separate parking brake. It is the same as the regular rear brake no matter which type of brakes you have on the back.
