Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
1.I believe that you know how to take to tire off:
2.For the front left, turn the wheel all the way to the left ( help you get a better view) place a flat head screw driver between the rotor and the old brake pad, this make take a few mins. but your goal is to push the piston back so that it is flush or as far back as it can go.
3.Next, you are looking for 2 bolts these are hexagonal bolts, unscrew the bolts and remove the caliper from around the rotor. The pad closest to the engine of the car just pops out of the piston ( the hollow circle that you pushed back) the other pad will take a little prying with your flat head screwdriver, but it is relatively easy to take off as well.
4.Next Simply replace the old pads with the new ones. When installing the new pads ensure that the shape of the pad is angled in the same way as the rotor.
5.Finally, place the caliper back on the rotor and tighten the screws back up and replace the tire... be sure to put the cap back on the brake fluid resivour
6.Doing the right side is exactly the same with the exception of turning the wheel the oppisite direction to get the best view.
