When you jack up the vehicle and spin this side, does it rotate freely? If not, the caliper could be siezed enough to prevent the pad from disengaging all the way, or the brake hose has collapsed internally and is not letting the fluid to flow bake after the pedal is released.

What tools do i need to change all the brakes on a 2007 buick rendezvous


Besides regular hand tools and socket sets, the first thing you will see are the front caliper retaining bolts or screws. GM cars often used large hex key fittings to loosen those, but expect anything on the caliper bolts, a lot of variation between years and models.
Your very best tool is a repair manual for the rendezvous, with step by step instructions. They cost about 26-30 dollars.

Change brake pads


For starters the front and rear us disk pads and it is not hard to do. On the front jack up the front and us jack stand for safety. After you take of the wheel remove the two bolts at the back of the brake caliper remove the caliper and then the old pads us a C- clamp with one of the old pads installed in the caliper then just us the c-clamp to push the cylinder all the way in until it will go no further install new pads put back on. But before you do the next side hit the brake to push the cylinder back out. Go to other side do the same thing. On a side not you only need to replace the rear brakes every other time you do the front. The front wear twice as fast as they do most of the stopping.

1 Park your Buick on a level surface and shift the transmission to Neutral.
  • 2 Open the hood and draw enough brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir to bring the level down midway between the Full and Add marks if necessary. Use a new or clean turkey baster and a proper container. Then replace the reservoir cap but do not tighten.
    • 3 Loosen the wheel lug nuts on both front tires using a lug wrench.

    • 4 Raise the front of your vehicle using a floor jack and support it on jack stands.
    • 5 Secure the rear wheels with chocks.
    • 6 Finish removing the front wheel/tire assemblies.
    • 7 Reinstall two wheel lug nuts, hand tight, on the hub assembly you will be working on first. This will prevent the rotor from sliding off the hub.
    • 8 Force the brake caliper piston partially into its bore using a large C-clamp, just enough to allow it to clear the rotor when removing the caliper.
    • 9 Unscrew and remove the lower caliper pin bolt using a Torx bit socket and ratchet.
    • 10 Rotate the brake caliper upwards and secure it to the coil spring with a piece of wire.
    • 11 Remove the inner brake pad from the brake caliper bracket and place it against the caliper piston.
    • 12 Seat the caliper piston into its bore with the large C-clamp by pushing the inner pad with the clamp screw. Then remove the inner pad from the caliper.
    • 13 Remove the outer brake pad and brake pad retainers from the brake caliper bracket.
    Installing the Brake Pads
    • 14 Clean the brake assembly of brake dust using brake parts cleaner spray and a clean, lint-free cloth or towel.
    • 15 Install the brake pad retainers on the caliper bracket.
    • 16 Inspect the boot around the caliper piston and make sure it is laying flat. If necessary, use a blunt plastic stick or suitable tool to set the inner edge of the boot flat while avoiding damage to the boot.
    • 17 Set the new brake pads on the brake caliper bracket.
    • 18 Untie the brake caliper and rotate it back into position over the brake pads and bracket.
    • 19 Start the caliper lower-pin bolt by hand. Then tighten it with the Torx bit socket and ratchet.
    • 20 Climb in behind the steering wheel and depress the brake pedal only about 2/3 of its normal travel distance. Release the pedal and wait for about 15 seconds before depressing the pedal again. Repeat this procedure until you feel a firm brake pedal.
    • 21 Remove the two wheel lug nuts from the brake assembly.
    • 22 Replace the brake pads on the other front wheel starting with Step 7, from the previous section, through Step 8 of this section.
    • 23 Reinstall the wheel/tire assemblies.
    • 24 Lower the vehicle and remove the chocks.
    • 25 Add new brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir to bring the level up to the Full mark if necessary. Then tighten the cap.

    Changing brake pads


    There is no "easiest way" to remove the pads. You need to unbolt the calipers, (bolts are on the inboard side surrounded by small rubber boots) retract the caliper pistons and remove/replace pads,(make note if any pads are marked R&L) put it back together. Make sure that slides that caliper bolts pass through move freely. Don't use calipers with torn rubber dust boots and don't pinch boot between pad and piston when you reassemble. Unless you open the hydraulic system you do not need to bleed. Before attempting to drive, depress pedal a few times to restore proper caliper adjustment.

    Brakes


    All you have to do is take the calipers off crack open the bleeder of the side you are working on leave the old pad in the caliper and press the pad in as far as it will go tighten bleeder clean the rotors with brake clean to get the oily substance off they put on during shipping to keep them from rusting put rotor back in place and put new pads in caliper if they give you grease for the caliper sliders put some on the caliper bolts and sliders the thing the bolts go into on the caliper so they move fairly easy this way your brakes will work better and last longer put caliper back in place tighten caliper bolts snug usually with a ratchet like a good 3/8 ratchet then do the other side fill up the master cylinder with proper brake fluid usually dot3 but should say on master cylinder cap bleed brakes if you did just the front bleed the passenger side first pump pedal a few times dont go all the way to the floor have someone open the bleeder on the right front passenger front while holding pedal down with just a little pressure one foot on pedal one under pedal so it dont go to the floor then do the same for the other side check fluid start vehicle if pedal is good go for a test drive and thats it.
