Front strut replcement 2006 buick lacross


Jack up and support the vehicle on the sub frame. Remove the wheels. Unbolt the strut to knuckle bolts. Unbolt the strut mount from the strut tower (3 13mm head bolts) Remove the strut assembly.

It your replacing with "quick struts" reinstall and have the alignment done.

If your just replacing the strut you will need to bring the old strut assemblies to a shop to have the springs compressed. Once the springs are compressed the strut nut can be removed from the strut and the strut can be replaced.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE STRUT NUT FROM THE STRUT WITHOUT COMPRESSING THE SPRINGS. YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.

Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Inspect the fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir.
  3. If the brake fluid level is midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, then no brake fluid needs to be removed from the reservoir before proceeding. If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, then remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding.
  4. Raise and suitably support the vehicle.
  5. Remove the tire and the wheel assembly.
  6. Hand-tighten 2 wheel lug nuts in order to retain the rotor to the hub.
  7. Install a large C-clamp over the top of the caliper housing and against the back of the outboard pad.
  8. Slowly tighten the C-clamp until the piston pushes into the caliper bore enough to slide the caliper off the rotor.
  9. Remove the C-clamp from the caliper.

Front brake pads and related parts

  1. Remove the lower caliper bolt (1).

    WARNING Use care to avoid damaging pin boot when rotating caliper.

  2. In order to access the pads, rotate the caliper upward and suitably support it.
  3. Remove the pads (5) from the caliper bracket (3).
  4. Remove the 2 retainer slides (4) from the caliper bracket (3).
  5. Inspect all parts for cuts, tears, or deterioration. Replace any damaged parts.
  6. Inspect the caliper bolts for corrosion or damage. If corrosion is found, use new caliper bolts when installing the caliper.
To install:
  1. Using a C-clamp, bottom the piston into the caliper bore. Use an old brake pad or wooden block across the face of the piston. Do not damage the piston or the caliper boot.
Install the 2 retainers to the caliper bracket.

NOTE The wear sensor is on the outside pad. The sensor is positioned at the leading or upward edge of the pad during forward wheel rotation.


Install the pads to the caliper anchor bracket.

  1. WARNING
  1. Use care to avoid damaging pin boot when rotating caliper.

  1. Remove the support and reposition the caliper (2) back down over the front pads.
  2. Lubricate the pin bolt and the inner diameter of the bolt boot with GM P/N 18047666, or equivalent. Do not lubricate the threads of the pin bolt.
  3. Install the lower caliper bolt. Tighten the caliper bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  4. Remove the 2 wheel lug nuts retaining the rotor to the hub.
  5. Install the tire and the wheel assembly.
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. With the engine OFF, gradually apply the brake pedal to approximately 2/3 of its travel distance.
  8. Slowly release the brake pedal.
  9. Wait 15 seconds, then, repeat steps 10 and 11 until a firm brake pedal is obtained. This will properly seat the brake caliper pistons and brake pads.
  10. Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.
  11. Burnish the pads and rotors.

Procedure for replacing the rear rotors and pads on a 2005 Buick Lacrosse


Remove the tire and there will be to bolts holding the calipers on, once you remove the two bolts the caliper will slide off, you will move it to the side out of the way and you will now pull off the rotor, you may have to give it a tap or two to free it but it should come off fairly easy, make sure you have the same new size as the old one and just slide it on. The next thing will be is to pull off the old brake pads, they will pop out. The next step is to return the piston to the in position, by using a C clamp and one of the old pads, place it over the piston and turn the c clamp until the piston is back into the housing, now just snap the new pads into the caliper and place the caliper back on the rotor and secure the two bolts. The replacing of brake rotors and pads is a really simple task and if all goes well it take about 10-20 minutes per wheel.

Changing brake pads


There is no "easiest way" to remove the pads. You need to unbolt the calipers, (bolts are on the inboard side surrounded by small rubber boots) retract the caliper pistons and remove/replace pads,(make note if any pads are marked R&L) put it back together. Make sure that slides that caliper bolts pass through move freely. Don't use calipers with torn rubber dust boots and don't pinch boot between pad and piston when you reassemble. Unless you open the hydraulic system you do not need to bleed. Before attempting to drive, depress pedal a few times to restore proper caliper adjustment.
