Hey zach, no they are not reverse thread. They are most likely just very tight from the heat and cool cycles they go thru. Put your wrench on them and give it a few sharp raps with a ball peen hammer. That should break them loose enough to finish with the wrench.

Yes it's the right direction but because of so much heating and cooling those bolts get really tight.Spray alot of penetrating oil (WD-40) on and around the bolts.You may even want to tap the wrench on the bolts in the opposite direction slightly (tighten) to help loosen their adherence,then try the right way to losen them.Dont use a torch! It'll melt the "O" ring on the caliper piston.Take your time

The pins / wedges just tap out use a scewdriver on the metal edge of the pin just tap it out to the rear and when putting them back in just tap them back in from the front. You will see they are diamond shape and metal cased around rubber very easy to do just take your time.

Replace rear brake pads 2006 Chevy Impala

Hello, to replace the rear brake pads follow the following steps:

1. Lift the Chevy Impala with the jack and place it on jack stands.
2. Remove the wheels with a lug-nut wrench and set them aside. The lug-nut wrench can be found in the trunk of your Chevy Impala.
3. Remove the caliper with a ratchet and use a bungee cord to hang the caliper. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose, as the hose might break and cause fluid to leak.

4. Remove the brake caliper bracket from the steering knuckle with a ratchet. Set it aside.

5. Remove the break rotor from the hub. The rotor might require force to be removed; if it does, use a hammer to hit the rotor in the center, where the lug studs are located. Take care not to hit the studs.

6. Remove the new rotor from its packaging and use brake cleaner to remove the grease from the rotor. Grease is applied on the rotor in the factory to inhibit rust during storage.

7. Install the new rotor onto the hub.

8. Install the caliper bracket with new brake pads onto the rotor and fasten it to the steering knuckle. Use a ratchet to tighten the bolts.
9. Open the master cylinder reservoir so you don't break a seal while compressing the brake caliper.

10. Compress the brake caliper with a C-clamp, so that the caliper can fit over the new brake pads. Install the caliper by securing it to the brake caliper bracket with a ratchet.

How do you release the anti-lock brake system to replace the rear brake rotors on a 2001 Chevy Impala?

I assume you want to take the caliper off first. Remove caliper bolts & using a pry common screwdriver pry piston on caliper back in a bit or enough to allow the caliper's removal. After this, remove rotor. I hope this helps!
