Jack the truck up and take the passangers tire off. look behind the rotor you should see 2 bolts holding the caliber on to the rotor. loosen those and take them out. from there you should be able pull up on the caliber this will take the caliber and pads off together. take the pads out of the caliber and install the new ones .

BECAREFUL not to twist or bend the caliber to much or you will bend the brake line.....

once you have installed the new brake pads in the caliber. put the caliber back on the rotor. if they will not fit release the bleader valve to release the pressure. than you should be able to slid the caliber back onto the rotor. once you have done that close the bleader valve. reinstall the 2 bolts to hold the caliber in place. put your tie back one. Follow these steps for the other side.

now once that is done. you might want to blead the front breaks.
what you do is have someone help you. fill the brake resiviour with brake fliud. than start your truck.
Have someone in the cab to press the brake. What you want to do is turn the wheel so you can get to the bleader valve. once you can get to it open it up. have the person in the cab other truck press the brake until you see a steady flow of brake fluid coming out of the caliber. once you see that have the pseron press the brake once more and hold it to the floor.
close the bleader valve.

now do the same thing on the other side. But, make sure you check your resivour fluid first.
This is to make sure you don't have any air in the lines. after you are done with both side put it in gear and hit the brake make sure you stop......... If that works go about half the block down and hit the brake again to make sure you stop......
once you have done that and are comfortable with the way the truck stops than ou are good to go and now know how to change the brakes for future refrence..... be aware the back brakes are diffrent.........

let me know when you are ready for the back brakes.
do not blead the front ones if ou intend to do the back brakes afterwarwords......

if you are only doing the front brakes you must blead the the passanger side first......... if you do not have the bolts holding your caliber on than you will have a pin the you will take a hammer to and knock it out that will release them....

I have a 2004 chevy silverado. my brake lights stopped working so i replaced them and still nothing. the only one that works is the brake light on top of the cab. any suggestions?


If all bulbs are good is most likely printed circuit board that bulbs plug into, very common to go bad. HELP/motormite sells them in 2 pack for both sides. Available in any auto parts store for less than the dealer charges.

2004 Silverado crew cab has rattle around steering


If you feel this rattle while driving at low speed or turning at low speed it is likely a worn out steering shaft coupler, it is very common.

I have a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado K2500 Crew Cab and the cab mounted break light doesn't work. I replaced the bulbs and still nothing. I cannot find a fuse or I just don't know what it would be labeled as.


First check to see if you have power to this light when you step on the brakes. if not there is probably a break in the wireing because if the regular brake lights on the rear of the truck are working then this light should work off the same fuse.
