The first thing you need to do is check the brake fluid level. If it is above the FULL line remove enough to put the level at the FULL line. Over filling a brake fluid reservoir will cause the brakes to LAG (press against the rotor constantly). Before you start removing wheels and going thru the hoops, the easiest (and most common cause of brake lag) is an over filled reservoir.

I beleive the rear calipers are the ratchet style, you have to use a tool to turn the piston so it retracts back into the caliper, if you didnt do this or didnt ratchet them in all the way, then they will be too far out and will cause what you are describing, basically applying pressure to the rotors all of the time. It is also possible that the calipers need replaced if you did indeed ratcheted the caliper piston in all the way originally.

SOURCE: 1999 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4. Replacing rear pad's,& Bleeding Breaks

have one person in the blazer pumping the brake pedal and then hold to the floor, crack the bleeder then tighten, release pedal, repeat till all air is out one side at a time, if this does not work then your ABS unit is bad witch if u follow your lines from your master cylinder u will find a black box with a motor on it, or the master cylinder itself is bad, it also can cause u to have no pedal, replace the master cylinder first, most likely cheaper.

SOURCE: where is the fuse box in the 06 chevy uplander

I have a chevy uplander and you have to open the passenger door and its on the side of the dash, to the right of the glove box. You will notice a small rounf opening with just enough room for 2 fingers to go in. the whole side will come off when you pull it.

SOURCE: cant depress brake caliper to replace pads

disc brakes on the rear of a vehicle have a screw out mechanism that attaches to the ebrake . this means that you must turn the caliper piston to recess into the cylinder.
open the bleed screw to make it move eazier.

Testimonial: "thanks for "bleed valve" tip. I had to take the whole caliper off due to debris in the chamber,the brakes have not been maintained prior to me."

Loud tweeting noise while driving 1996 chevy blazer. No noise when brakes are applied.


Common noise heard when the brake pads are getting close to the end of its life and will need to be replaced. Replace the brake pads and rotors since the rotors are not that expansive, might as well replace them also.

Good luck and stay safe, thank you for using fixya.

2007 uplander rear brake repair - what type of brake pads came as original equipment? Ceramic or semi-metalic? The dealer service states that the original were semi-metalic. I've replaced the front...


pads last about 20k, rotors about 40,for the fronts and about 30/50 for the rears,they are all semi metallic.if you look under the car you will see the places for the jack(not to be used when working on the car OTHER than replacing a tyre.)for all manuals see "manuals"on this website(i am in england...)

I'm getting a grinding noise when i apply the brakes sounds like the rear


In that case you most likely have worn brake pads - replace them all.

Grinding noise


Usually a grinding noise in a disc brake is caused from a rotor with a raised edge that froms from normal wear. The raised edge is not a big deal until you install NEW disc brake pads. All of the sudden you have a grinding noise everytime you apply the brake because the NEW disc pad is being ground down but the raised surface created from the OLD Disc Brake Pad. Most of the time the Brake repair shops turn rotors on the car when the pads are replaced and this grinding symptom does not manifest itself.

On and OLD set of disc brake pads over time that raised area on the rotor starts to flake / rust / corrode and can come in contact with the brake disc pad when the brakes are applied.


Hope this explains it well enough.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Where do you put the brake fluid on this car? Because, my car is making a grinding sound when I put my foot on the brake.


The grinding noise probably means you need to put new brakes on. If you fill the brake fluid reservoir, and then change the brakes, the new fluid will run out anyways, because the new brakes will have to be put in, and the fluid will run out.

from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material

96 Ranger Grinding Sound Moving Forward


Did you check the rotors to see if they were cracked or 'thin' ? Rotors sometimes get really thin with use.And they can crack. Or as in one case that I know of there was sand between the rotor and the pads. The pads were also new. Removed the gravelly sand and they worked fine.
