Remove bolts holding caliper on rotor, remove old pad, replace with new pad, put caliper back on rotor. replace wheel, repeat other side. Als check rotor for wear, if bad get new rotors, always replace as a set

I own a 2007 Chevy Malibu LS. Recently my brakes have been 'squealing' and my steering wheel has always vibrated when I press on the brake. I thought it was my brake pads and rotors but I just had them...


checked out replace pads /and cut rotors if pads are glazed over [film u were told ] the pads are smoothed over from getting to hot -riding brake or stop and go traffic lot of down hill braking which ever was the cause ur brakes got over heated and glazed over and are very smooth also the heat transferred to the rotors also warped them when u get steering shake when braking 90 percent of the time its warpage in rotor and the only way is to have them removed and put on a cutter to check for out of round also abs doesnt cause this abs [anti-lock braking] is designed to transmit a pulse to ur brakes when it senses a wheel is about to lock up or skid u would feel the pulse in ur brake pedal not ur steering

WHAT IS A TYPICAL BRAKE LIFE FOR NEW 2006 CHEVY MALIBU


Most brake pads on GM products (and just about everyone else's) have little scrapers on the sides of the pads that will cause the brakes to squeak all the time when you wear down to their level. When you hear that constant noise it is time to replace the pads ASAP. If you put it off too long, you will probably end up replacing the rotors too. If you drive like me (jack rabbit starts and sudden stops) the original pads might make it to 35-50,000 miles. If you drive like a granny (slow starts and coasting to a stop) you might be looking at 45-60,000 miles before replacement.
