You need to find a very little c clamp they sell this at any auto parts to block the fluid from driping then remove the bolt holding the hose and then put it back together and make sure to place the coper washrs back to prevent any leaks
the only proble is by doing that the system gets air and you need to know how to beed it out

What tools do i need to remove rear brake pads on 95 cadillac deville?


You say pads, so I assume that you have rear disk brakes. The only special tool you will need is one to compress the rear calipers. Here is an image of the tool that is available at most all auto part stores.

Only the rust lip on rotor holding the caliper on

Sand off some of the outside rotor step, you can
easily get to

Can pull caliper to you, to compress the piston for
pad clearance

Can open bleeder to make it easier,have to bleed

This should be typical of all rear disc brakes on Cadillacs. You will notice the top illustration is incorrect for rear disc brakes with integral park brake, but if you scroll down you'll see the correct application for your problem,

After I changed the brake pads and brake caliper on a 1998 Cadillac Deville the Traction Control and the ABS light came on.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is normal after replacing the brake pads. You can take it to any shop that has a device to erase the log on the dash. This is computer related and needs to be removed by a scan tool.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

How do you put front brake pads on cadillac sedan deville 1996


Front brakes on all modern cars are disc brakes. The front brakes generally provide 80% of the stopping power, and so tend to wear faster than the rear. Replacing them - pads, rotors and calipers - is quite simple once you understand the process, and can save you a great deal of money. These instructions will include a full front brake replacement. Also, having a service manual for your vehicle will save your sanity, as well as time and money. If you only need pads, or pads and rotors, but not calipers, skip the steps for replacing calipers. Repeat the steps below for each side of the car as necessary.

Rear brake caliper removal


I just did the rear caliper on my '95 Deville Concours and found that the caliper would not rotate enough to slide it off the top bolt. My solution was to remove the parking brake cable bracket bolt behind the caliper. This gave me the ability to rotate the caliper enough to get the caliper off of the brake pads and slide the caliper towards the inside of the car.

How do I change my rear brakes on my 2000 Cadillac Seville STS?


you will need to remove the parking brake cable from the caliper then remove the lower slide pin bolt, flip the caliper up and pull out the old pads and install the new ones. You should get the rotors machined for the best braking performance or replace them.

Replacing rear brakes on 96 deville


quite an involved repair if unfamiliar. Include proper setting of park brake arm to get proper pedal height , or the pedal might go to the floor.. Also includes bleeding of the brake system, with a power bleeder.
