I haven't done a brake job on a bike this new but it shouldn't be any different than any other bike. Simply take the two bolts that hold the caliper on out. Remove the old shoes. Use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers and squeeze the piston back into the caliper all the way. Install the new pads and put the caliper back in place. Replace the two bolts and torque them to 25 Foot pounds. Squeeze the brake lever until you have a good firm brake.

Good Luck
Steve

I have an 08 Avalanche. Having a severe grinding noise when coming to a stop in front. My brake pads are fairly new. Just started on Thursday. Sounds horrible now. What could it be.


Hi Benjamin:
I'd be getting the brakes checked (or actually check them myself).
That involves getting the vehicle jacked up, removing the wheels, and visually inspecting the brake pads and discs.
PLEASE! This is a safety issue and you NEED good brakes.

Don't delay/ Get them checked.
Best to you.

Hi Anonymous, because of the time involved writing it, I would recomend you purchase a service manual it gives you step by step directions, pictures and diagrams, special tools, parts your going to need, torque specs ect. besides your going to need it for other DIY projects you may want to tackle in the future. Good luck

You don't have to but you should pull the caliper anyway, to clean it and check the anti-rattle spring.
