Need to replace front left pads is there a video


Probably not a video, but brakes are to be performed in Axle sets. If the LF is worn more than the RF, something is wrong, like frozen caliper.

JUST INSTALLED BRAKE PADS IN THE REAR AND THEY ARE NOT RELEASING SMOKING REAL BAD


On most rear disc brakes, the calipar pistons have to be turned in with a special tool.
They should be turned in just enough to get the new pads on without using force, that might be the problem.

Rear drivers side brake bleeder niple is froze - need to replace calipar - is this difficult? I have completed other repairs on brakes and replaced calipars before just not on a blazer


This is just like any other vehicle to change out the caliper. Almost all brakes are the same when it comes down to it. The only difference is the way certain companies either install them or the way they work. But on the Blazer it is really simple and can be done by just taking your time and doing it like you have done before
