Question about Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

The driver's side caliper bolts will not loosen up. My sucket wrench broke in the process of trying and I can see one of the bolts head is starting to strip. What can I do? Could it be left handed thread? The passenger side gave no troubles at all and they are right handed.

No, all threads are right handed. Can you take the whole bracket off the hub to get a better angle? Can you push back the boot and get a vice grip on the bolt? If it comes down to it, you'll have to drill the bolt out.

The caliper bolt is striped and the allen wrench wont loosen it


You can try a larger allen wrench or try switching between standardand metric wrenches. If this does not work younwill have to drill the bolt and use a easy out.

CV axle shaft replacement


Instructions
1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

  • 4. Slide the crown washer off the axle and loosen the axle nut with a crescent wrench. Unfasten the top and bottom bolts that secure the brake caliper to the rotor with a socket wrench and slide the bolts out of the caliper.
  • 5. Lift the brake caliper off the rotor and remove the brake pads from the caliper. Suspend the brake caliper from the vehicle frame with a wire hanger and take the rotor off the axle.
  • 6. Unfasten the thru-bolt on the vertical sway bar with a socket wrench and remove the bolt from the sway bar. Take the channel bolt out from between the sway bar and lower A-arm that the thru-bolt ran through, and loosen the bolts that secure the front right axle to the center flange with a socket wrench and breaker bar. You may need to loosen the bolts with the breaker bar before removing them with the socket wrench.
  • 7. Slide the front right axle off the center flange and let it rest on the A-arm. Lift the front passenger side up with the floor jack to get enough room between the steering knuckle and A-arm and slide the axle out of the vehicle.
    Install in reverse order.

    What is the process for replacing bothmy front brake calipers?


    Hello rcvez
    Without a model and year I can only give you a general description on how to change chevy calipers.
    Jack up the left front and put a stand under it, then remove the wheel. Turn the wheel all the way to the right
    On the back of the caliper you'll see 2 female hex bolts(allen head) the size should be 5/16 or 3/8, use a
    male hex socket or an allen wrench to remove the bolts, if you use an allen wrench you may have to give
    it a couple of wacks with a hammer to loosen them up. Now use a pry bar work the top and bottom of the
    caliper and walk it off the roter, set the caliper aside so not to strech the hose. Next, put the new pads in
    the new caliper and bolt it up to the bracket, remove the hose from the old caliper and bolt it to the new
    caliper, be sure the bolt is clean and use the new copper washer that came with the caliper. Now repeat
    this on the right side, bleed the brakes and thats it. Hope this is helpful.

    How do you replace front brakes on the 1998 oldsmobile silhouette? And our van makes a rattling buzzing sound when turned off- like an air compressor. We got it used and it's always made this sound for us-...


    I recommend you get a haynes repair manual from your local auto parts store on your vehicle to have a reference first. Basically, jack the vehicle up, remove the tire, on the backside of the caliper there are 2 bolts. these bolts can have Hex heads or be regular bolt heads. They also may have retainers to keep them from falling out once loosened. Loosen them and lift the caliper off the brake disc. The old pads may have clips holding them in place so use a screw driver and pop them off. You will need a caliper compressor tool to compress the piston on the caliper, install the new pads and reverse the process. Should take about 30 min per side from start to finish.

    2002 silverado 2500HD rear brake question????


    You'll need a T-55 torx bit to remove the rear caliper pins/bolts. You can try using an insert style bit...one that removes from the socket or perhaps purchase a replacement bit (one that would be used in a cordless drill/driver.) The one I used had a 5/16" hex shank. Like you said, there is very little clearance between the head and the leaf springs, which won't allow room for a breaker bar and torx bit. So using a 5/16" wrench, ( I'd recommend a 6 point box wrench to prevent slipping or rounding off.) I was able to loosen the bolt. Or plan B is to remove the caliper mounting bracket which is held on by two 21 or 22 mm hex head bolts. Which would have to be removed to remove the brake rotor.

    Need to change a rotor. what tools do I need I already have the calipher off. I now have to remove the caliper mount.


    Just completed doing my rotor place a car jack stand or stack 2 blocks on each side of your A frame. Let jack down and place some blocks behind front of and rear of tires left on the ground. To remove your caliper mount look on reverse side of caliper mount for 2 large hex bolts. Lightly spray around them with some liquid wrench (try not to get spray everywhere). Remove bolts with a wrench and probably a hammer or a ratchet and a hammer. Tap lightly on wrench using short strokes. If this doesn't loosen the bolts use some heat (heated wrench technique) small propane kit to heat caliper mount not too hot just enough to heat it up to just above too hot to touch then reapply wrench tapping lightly. You need a C-Clamp to push the caliper in. After caliper is in remove c-clamp from caliper. If the caliper wont go in you have to replace it. Remove rotor cap with a flat head screw driver and hammer tapping around the edges lightly. Remove the pin out of the bolt behind the rotor cap. Remove nut then remove rotor. Some vehicles will not have a nut and pin system, just a shaft to hold the rotor in place. If the rotor is rusted on tap firmly on inside (back side) of rotor to break it loose from the rust . Spray rust with liquid wrench let sit for 2 minutes then wipe dry. Use a clean cloth or rag to handle new rotor. Slide new rotor on the shaft and replace nut the pin (if no nut and pin continue to next step. Place caliper over rotor and screw in hex bolts on back side of caliper using a wrench or ratchet tighten 1/2 turn of being tight. Re -attach caliper mount onto caliper. Tighten 1/4 turn past tight. Lift truck with jack replace tire and remove jack stands and or blocks from under A frame let truck down and remove blocks

    Brack change


    Assuming that this Model has 4 Wheel Disk Brakes I will lead you the Best that I can. Remove the Tire, From there you will see a Large Disk with a "Caliper" Mounted on the top side that covers Both sides of the Disk. On the Back side of this "Caliper" on the Top and Bottom of it There is going to be a Bolt on the Top and Bottom. Some use Allen Wrenches and Some use Bolts or Nuts, Feel around and figure out which one you have. Remove these and Lift the Caliper Off of the Disk,BE CAREFUL WITH THE BRAKE LINE ATTACHED TO THE CALIPER AND DO NOT REMOVE THE BRAKE LINE! Remove the Brake Pads from the Caliper at this Point. On the Back of the Brake Pads that you just removed there should be Clips, Take these off the Old pads ans Install on the New Pads. Right where the Pads were on the Caliper there is going to be a Round Cylinder with a Large Hole in the Center, This needs to be Depressed back into the Caliper to get this Job done. On the Top of the Caliper there is a Small Bolt that is Round on Top and has a Small Hole in the Center Just like a Persons Head on a Nut. You MUST do the Next Steps Together to make this work CORRECTLY! Get a Wrench that fits the Small nut on top and Loosen it VERY LITTLE While you use a Pair of Channel Locks to Compress the Cylinder Back into the Caliper. You should see Brake Fluid come out of the Head in that little Nut. Once the Cylinder is Compressed Back into the Caliper Tighten the Little Nut Back down. Try not to let Air get Back into the Hole in the Nut that you are Loosening Or We will have a PROBLEM. So, Make sure you do BOTH of them at the Same time (Loosen nut WHILE Compressing Cylinder with Channel Locks). Install the New Brake Pads on the Caliper the Same way that they came off. Wipe everything off and keep it all Clean! Install the Caliper Back on the Disk and Replace the Bolts on Top and Bottom of Caliper. Get in the Car and Pump the Brake Pedal until it gets Firm and go to the Next one! This will work for all if you have 4 Wheel Disk Brakes. If you get two much air in the Lines the Brakes will go to the Floor and you will have to have a Helper Pump the Brakes while you Loosen the Little Nut on top of the Caliper.
