Question about 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
If the plastic you are referring to is around the shaft of the bolt, then it won't matter since that is only to help the caliper travel smoothly on the bolt. I would look for the plastic for the other bolt from when you removed it. If you can't locate it, don't worry. Just do what JoeFriday suggested and grease the area where the caliper rides on. Not too much or it will get on the pads and ruin them, plus it won't stop as well. Good luck.

Shouldn't be any plastic on either of them. The caliper bolts will need to be lubricated very well with some heavy grease before reassembly to prevent caliper sticking.
