SOURCE: rear brake pads

The rear calipers have to be turned back in, not pushed. There is a tool, but rather than spend the money... I have used a 11/16 wrench. Slips at first until you get it started, but then the calipers turn pretty easily.

Your brake peddle switch may be out of adjustment or defective. Look under the dash to the peddle & about half way up you will see the switch. Make sure it is releasing & working properly. Good luck!

There are some awesome adhesives on the market. I am thinking about one for boats and just remember "1500" as part of the name. With marine products you will not have any problems with moisture separating it so car washes will be okay.

Breaks on a 2006 Grand Prix


Rear disc brakes have to also apply the parking brakes.
To do that, they must not retract too far.
That is accomplished with a one way ratched down the center of the piston, on the back side.
So most rear pistons have to be rotated CW in order to retract down this spiral ratchet.
Not sure exactly how Pontiac works, but there is probably a large slot in the piston to allow for this.
