You first have to release the complete brake assembly from the frame (2 screws). These are the LARGER screws. Then you have to also relieve some pressure in the system by loosing the nipple on the assembly. While the old pads are in the assembly open the gap by means of screw driver or pliers (plumbing). This way the new pads can also fit. CLOSE back nipple to avoid air getting into the system. Replace pads by removing pin and bolt (holding pads). And put back assembly. Ready to go. Test and make sure everything works before doing the true ride.....

2003 Dyna Superglide. Rear brake pedal won't activate the brake light. Front brake lever does activate the brake light.


Sounds like your rear brake switch or a connection or a wire is defective.

Please post a comment if you need or can provides more information AND if you are willing to share with tothers when you get a solution.

Does the 2003 gmc yukon have rear rotors? and do the brakes need to be changed if the rotors need to be machined?


Yes, it has rear Disc Brakes, I would suggest to change the rear pads since they have to remove the rear Brake Calipers to remove the rotors and it wouldn't take much more time or labor to replace the pads at that point. That way when your rear rotors are re-installed and your new brake pads are installed your rear brakes should give you longer service life and better stopping power.

Creaky sound upon tapping brake, and brown right rear tire


Looks like you need to change the brake pads sooner than later, the brown residue is the brake dust and the burning smell might be the dust hitting the the tyre.

Do I need to remove the rear tire on my 2003 harley davidson softail deuce to replace the brakes?


You do not have to remove the wheel according to the manual, but if you wish to remove the caliper you will need to remove the wheel....There are no caliper mounting bolts on the Deuce, the caliper is mounted through the rear axle. TO change the brake pages loosing the pad retaining bolts (2) then push the caliper gently towards the rotor and then pull it gently away from the rotor. This will free up enough space to get the new pads in. Remove the pad retention bolts and replace pads and tighten everything down.

NEVER swap rear tires... the radial tires are not made/designed to be driven one way and then driven the other... they WILL delaminate and come apart.. when you rotate tires, you rotate front and rear on the same side....(old bias-ply tires were rotated around a vehicle)
... if you did not have both sides of the rear brakes fitted with new pads and ..at least had the rotors turned.. do that. look closely at the inside of your wheels and make sure there has been no contact.... once you have made sure both sides are good.. reply back to me on here.. thanks... please mark as helpful.. thanks
